I thought it might be fun to see hubbers' different 'traffic stories' since joining. Actual number removed to protect the innocent and respect the TOS. Please add your own! It seems like people have had all kinds of different experiences and I would love to compare and contrast.
Mine are very boring. Panda doesn't seem to know I exist. But then, on Hubpages, neither does Google!
This is what my traffic looks like when I don't bother much with SEO.

This is what my traffic looks like when I use basic on-page SEO.
And meanwhile, on my blog where I don't worry about SEO, I'm getting another 10,000 visitors a week and making almost zero money on the few ads I've got there. What's wrong with this picture?
Are you a top-rated author on that other site, being promoted by that site at all?
Err... I donno what you mean by "promoted?" I just do my own thing. I've had some years to master and improve "my own thing."
Hubpages is a challenge that I set for myself: can I duplicate that success, and thereby increase my skills? There are barriers on Hubpages which won't let me use some of the techniques that work elsewhere, so that's forcing me to do things differently.
Once I get to a payment a month I will be looking to try another site. It pays to diversify!
I joined Hubpages after the first devastating panda. My traffic has seen wild fluctuations that initially I put down to being a new hubber and to having "young" hubs. However, since this time, the fluctuations have made me feel "drunk" on occasion.

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work I've already posted here.I have a couple of niche HubPages accounts that do okay....

*Be Nice*Wow, some really big sweeping reforms going on here, Mass Author Exodus, Confusion abounds , but its hard to keep track of all of it.The Panda bite has apparently led HP to believe that it is allergic to many of you! I would like to hear more about the individual treatment many are...

I am a little bit confused about how this works.One of my hubs got flagged because I had more than two link cloakers on it. It was flagged for the no more than 2 redirects to the same domain, which I understand, but the cloakers took you to various sites (never the same one). I've seen other hubs...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the reality proved me I was wrong. My Traffic Is Constantly Going DownI did complain a...
