    Do any of you get any decent traffic flow on Hubpages anymore? It seems like all my pages are dead anymore.

    I guess it depends on what you call decent.

    A year ago Panda hit and my traffic cut in half.  Then in august it jumped by about a factor of 5 and continued to rise through the end of the year.  Since the first of the year it has seen a slow but steady decline to the point it is back to about that in last August - a decline of about 40% from it's high.

    Disappointed, yes, but I can't really complain as it is still 5X what it was a year ago.

    It's all in how you look at it, I guess.  Glass half full or half empty?

      Agree wilderness, i would add that the time and seasons of the year affect page views, and what people are surfing and reading online as well. Obviously the couple months up to december would be the highest..but Panda does throw a monkey wrench into the game with all the guesswork we now have to do to figure out how to work with it!

        If we can, mobias, if we can.  The big G has implemented so many changes so fast that no one can keep up, and some of those changes are incomprehensible to boot.  Witness Izzy and Randy, for example.

        Personally, I'm to the point that I will continue to write the best hub I can, on a variety of subjects.  If it doesn't work, I'll try something else to gain a few bucks.  I give up trying to decipher the madness of Google.

    Just a quick glance at your hub tells me why you haven't even hit 10,000 views yet.

    1. Your hubs are short. They should be at least 500 words - and the ones I find do best are over 900.
    2. You need more content. Add more pictures, break up text and add subtitles etc.
    3. Saturated and non-evergreen topics. Christmas Gifts 2011? Getting traffic to your websites? No wonder you're getting none...

      I am getting some and used to get a lot more. Id rather save the real good stuff for my own blog and generate the traffic there. Hub pages is more of a backlinking area instead. if that makes sense

    I have a few hubs on gasoline that I wrote in Aug 2008 and a year later in 2009 and those still draw fairly regular views. My traffic rose in the fall, dipped in January, rose in Feb and dipped early March. However, looks like it's rising again. A couple of my hubs which had little traffic last year are drawing well as of yesterday.

    I should be succinct like relache.
