Yes, huge drop starting Wed. - picked back up today. I'm sure it was just the Thanksgiving holiday
Probably holiday. Even my junk email has dropped, thank goodness.
Yes, web traffic everywhere typically experiences drastic drops on major holidays. Be prepared for a totally dead week from the day before Christmas to the day after New Years.
Mines gone up in the past few weeks which has been pretty cool...ok it's only 300-360 a day but still nice and much better than it used to be.
Holidays have a huge impact. And remember what today is - be on your toes for your gift articles!
I found on eBay during school shopping - not to list anything other than school related - the traffic drops dramatically.
Timing is sometimes everything.
Happy Cyber Monday!
I did not experience the problem. If anything, it was one of my best weeks ever!
Yes....but it was all due to the holiday weekend. Supposedly today is a huge traffic day. We'll see.
My traffic's only been going up. This holiday week was the best week I've had in a while.
NO, I haven't seen changes since mid October. October 13th was the death nail for my hubs. I survived the initial Panda updates, but 10-13-11 destroyed my traffic. I'm running about 20 percent of what I was prior to that date. No improvements yet. . .
I took a quick look at your hubs. Can I make a suggestion?
This worked for me - I removed all RSS feeds, and after a week or two, my traffic came back.
Well, here's an interesting thing.
I have more than one username, and those with rss feeds were up or down, regardless.
The whole Google Panda/subdomain thing has not yet settled down. I still do not know why this, my main name is slapped.
Was that you I was talking to?????????
I dang sure had a slap period too...I'm not Mr. Traffic, but it's back up to a point to where I can feel like it's not a waste of my time to be here.
That said....I'm working more on blogger and Info Barrel these days....not for any particular reason other than being a bit burnt on looking at this site all day every day.
I've got RSS feeds on most of my Hubs and all my pre-Panda traffic came back once the subdomains got implemented in July. I don't think it's RSS feeds on principle that can harm traffic but whether or not you use them effectively.
I'm sure the long holiday w/e had a lot to do with the fall in traffic. Let's see what happens this week.
Pretty good traffic here - friday and today should be fantastic for traffic, but the weekend deals also usually attract online shoppers.
This is from a sales writing perspective though, not sure how other types of writing on here would fare.
My traffic was up, but almost no revenue. I certainly didn't see anything from Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Except views. No moola!
Mine shot up today. But then again I've been writing more and tweaking the ones I've had. That was a suggestion by some hubbers when I first started. And it seems to have been a good one.
I didn't have much of a drop for Thanks Giving, Its going to be a photo finish to see if I reach a record with Adsense but I've had some great days this month.

I have seen a 50% drop in my traffic, the lowest it has been in months. I was wondering if anyone else was seeing the same results. Thanks.

I have personally had a little jump in trafiic yesterday and today. Not very significant, but significant enough to want to know if more people are experiencing this. may 16/2011

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.

After having a few really good days of traffic via Facebook and months of steady traffic from google, it's gone!!! The last few days I've been hovering around 20 views a day which I haven't had for more then two days in a row since last August, a month after joining! Was there a new google panda...

OK it is very early days, but hope springs eternal. There are intriguing signs of a traffic surge above the existing HP Quota (sustained traffic) over the last 2 days. The existing Quota has applied for the last 6 weeks since Dec 21 2014. Traffic has surged above the threshold over the last 2 days,...
