    WTH happened overnight with my account? I just checked my stats and my page views are almost at an all time low - even lower than after the Panda update. Now down to 700 views (after subdomains was about 5,000 views a day - since then been hovering at around 2 - 2,500 views a day) That's a drop in traffic overnight of about 65%.

    Lots of blue arrows on my hubs. What should I check to see what's going on?

    Have I been sandboxed ? Or is this happening with other hubbers?

    Competition Google your topic and see how many other similar topics are competing with yours over taken yours.  I found that my hub was constantly under siege, and the page views fluctuated accordingly.

    I don't know if this has anything to do with it, I saw this earlier today.

    I hope things turn around for you.

    Dorsi, I was also shocked this morning to see a huge drop in my traffic views.  I've been monitoring my traffic today, so far my traffic is down by almost a thousand. 

    It seems we are not the only ones.  sad

    I have lost a couple of hundred. But this started about a week ago. Hope it stays even and not drops again, or else it will be back to busking on the street corner!

    In the past six months on two seperate occasions I have experienced this, an 80% drop in traffic overnight.  I had no idea what had happened and had no idea how to change the situation.  However, on both occasions around five days later my traffic returned to normal levels and in one instance actually came back stronger.  I still have no idea why it happened and I will say it knocked the stuffing out of me.  Hopefully this is what has happened to you and within a few days you will be back to where you previously were.

      I'm hit too but I'm hoping that traffic will bounce back.  This particular drop is no mystery though as it's caused by a major Google algorithm update.

      Still disturbing though...

      Nooooooo, Habee! Not you too! The sky is falling, the sky is falling!  It must be 2012! Have we fast-forwarded to December without noticing the passing of eight months?

      Oh, I do hope andyoz is right, and we'll all come back stronger next week.

    My stats haven't been great this week, but I have to say I flinched when I checked them just now.
