I am back. After plunging I have taken some time off for other pursuits. I have been exploring webmaster tools a bit to see what the problem is with my traffic flow. I see that many of my hubs have a disallow mediapartners under crawl errors. I see that I am not alone in this. When I went to search Hubpages to see if there is already a thread on this I typed in google disallow. In that search some hubs came up and under them it listed the disallow google mediapartners phrase I had seen under webmaster tools instead of the hub summary. ( weird eh?)
In any case I need some help figuring this out. The google disallow is surely part of the reason for low traffic?? yes?? I have listening to webmaster videos and searching on the web to see how to resolve this but I haven't come across anything ( that I understand anyway) Can anyone tell me more about google disallow, if it is a problem, and how it can be fixed?
Thanks in advance for any help...
How do you find out about disallow on your hub? Look at the html?
you have to look at the google webmaster site verify your hubs and look at crawler errors...
It is part of the robot index file and I'm not sure why it would be there. It tells the Google Search engine not to index those pages and I am lost as to why it would be added to the robot text file across the site.
Maybe someone from Team Hub Pages can explain this. Maybe it is a technical issue they can fix as we do not have access to the robot index text file.
I hope someone from team Hub Pages will be by to give us a answer.
I think google mediapartners has something to do with smart phones and not delivering ads which don't fit on the small screens - but this is just a guess after doing some quick googling.
I would think it's probably from another site that linked to you and they got slapped by 'G' give it more time, you may recover again we just never know these days sorry I'm not much help. Maybe once you figure it out, you can write a Hub on the experience
Some one from Team Hub Pages needs to answer us about this. I emailed them but no answer yet.
As it so happens, there is already a FAQ entry about this very issue:

The Google Webmaster Tools provides a page rank number for pages that they have listed for you. Are these true numbers. If they say Page 2 for a particular hub, does that mean it is on Page 2 of Google search.

"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...

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

Hello. I have some questions regarding Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. Any help is greatly appreciated. When I checked my webmaster tools, I saw a lot of URL errors, a 404 crawl error because apparently "Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page"....
