My traffic views down by 50% after bookmark feature was removed.

    I used to have a consistent flow of traffic views until hubpages decided to remove the bookmark feature. Had a 50% drop and it had never gone back up to what it used to be. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the same thing with their views.

    When did the drop happen?  Google has issued a couple of updates recently, and it's likely they are the cause of your loss of traffic.

    HP said they removed the feature because it wasn't used that often.
    Did many of your views come from HP or search traffic?

    It probably had nothing to do with the drop that many are experiencing.

    I agree with Marisa and RebekahELLE, This may really have nothing to do with bookmarks..  Google penguin must have been the cause of the drop... Mine has dropped by 50% too...  many others have reported this on the forums.

    This month page views and earnings for me was one of the best months I have had sense I started writing.  The past 2 mnths I have not been active at all.  So can anyone explain that?  I was making next to nothing and I was killing myself just to find out I didn't earn a cent so I thought I was burnt out so I took a brake.

      These pandas and penguins have some subdomains going up while some are down... I had not been affected in the previous panda strikes but this one hit me bad.. do we know what Google is up to?
      Enjoy your upswing while you are there.. smile

    The bookmarks had NOTHING to do with traffic.
