Has anyone experienced changing from Hubpage ads to adsense resulting in a traffic loss? I had hundreds of views a day which has now reduced to a small fraction of that. I can see that pages that were on the first google serp have dropped to page 6 or 10 even.
Alhough I am not an expert... far from it... I see no correlation between the two..may be plain coincidence. I am bumping it up so the experts will answer your question.
Sandbox may be the place ...but I don't even want to suggest it... the pain of having to suffer for six months is still fresh in my mind. Best wishes to you.
Google started slapping sites with too many ads.
Some of your pages appear to be sandboxed- this one for example 'Datacore Sansymphony-V Microsoft Monitoring Pack'
This one doesn't seem to be sandboxed: 'Republican Convention 2012: Trouble On The Path To The Presidential Nomination'
You can check by taking the titles and searching for them in Google. If your titles are unusual and long they should come up first in search. If the title is just a few keywords they should come up somewhere in the first few pages.
You can also take a paragraph from a suspect hub and search for that.
I am starting to think that unique titles are important when it comes to sand boxing. Pages with very similar titles to other pages seem to get hit more.
Google has said it does not like pages written specially for a particular keyword phrase.
This search brings up many similar pages with similar content to your Datacore page.

You could try unpubishing any unsuccessful pages that you have. It seems to help .
Hi againsttheodds, welcome to Hubpages!
IMO it was totally coincidence that when you turned off HPAds, your traffic dropped. Did this happen the last few days? Maybe it was just Super Bowl weekend. I saw a big drop in my traffic last weekend, but it is inching back up.
On my first few months, my hubs got a lot of traffic within Hubpages, but only a few, if any, from search engines. It takes a few months for hubs to mature, and rank well. I have hubs that were nowhere to be seen in google serp before, and suddenly found their way to page 10... I know these hubs have a long way to go, but from nowhere to page 10? Amazing! (to me anyway)
Just keep on writing, and I wish you the best of luck here on Hubpages.
It appears that Google or HP is taking turns promoting or bringing traffic to my hubs. One day there is a group getting traffic and the next day they don't get any and another group gets the traffic.
Well the traffic loss had been since 2/3. Last night I turned off adsense and went back to HP ads. That and a few other things such as driving traffic to my site manually and I think I may be pretty close back to normal today. Cannot say for sure what the issue was. Thanks everyone and I will monitor and let you know.
Thick-headed Larry's stoopid question of the day: What the dickens is sandboxing?
I did seem to lose some at the end of last week but it was like a 1,100 on one hub and dropped to 800..its creeped over 900 now
Earnings are recovering and 3-4 struggling days.. touch wood!

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having...

I knew it couldn't be that good forever, but I am concerned that it's Healdove that seems to be getting hit.

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
