    I joined 5 weeks ago and have been posting hubs consistently. I've gotten a consistent flow of traffic averaging about 40 to 50 views per day. (slow but consistent and climbing)
    Then suddenly about 5 or 6 days ago my traffic fell off the face of the earth with lots of 0's and 1 or 2 views per hub a day.
    Am I doing something wrong or is this normal? I'm getting a little discouraged. Please Help! Thank you.

      Was your traffic from hubpages?  It's normal for hubpages traffic to comprise most of your Hub views for a short time after publishing them. It takes longer to get traffic from sources outside of HP.  Welcome to HP!  smile

        I have started getting a little traffic from Google, Yahoo and Bing.  Perhaps I should give  it more time so I can analyze it better. Thanks for the welcome Randy Godwin smile

    Hi savanahl, it takes a while for hubs to get traffic from search engines.  New hubs get most of their traffic within Hubpages. 

    I had also experienced the same drop in traffic during my first few months.  Even after a year being here on Hubpages, I still have hubs that get zero views a day.  Like today, out of 105 hubs, 27 hubs have 000 views.  I write on different topics, so some hubs get a lot of traffic and some get very little, if any.

    You've only been here 5 weeks, so give it more time.  What you are experiencing is normal.  Keep hubbing and I wish you all the best here on Hubpages.

    Welcome to Hubpages, savanahl!!!  smile
