    I have requested to be moved to the Hubber's Hangout.

    However, the trouble you are having with your traffic is mostly due to Google's algorithm and the changes it made.

    There are a few other thread posted recently about it. Use the white box at the top of the page and search the forum for those threads. Stick with the most recent threads.

    Paul Edmondson's recent hub on erratic traffic patterns is also worth a watch.

    Many hubbers are reporting traffic decrease, the most important reason would be Google changes.

    I haven't been active on HP recently, but I have checked in from time to time. I'd say it's been about a month or two since I've really had some time to sit down with it. I find it amazing to see how many reports I find online of all this sudden drop in traffic between 5/17 and 5/18 specifically. I haven't had any issues on sites I've been actively working with. I double checked my information and did some searching and this appears to be a week before Google's update, and even some direct statements from Google between those two days saying they didn't change anything. Meanwhile, between those two days, I saw an unprecedented drop of 90%. 24 hours, 90% drop on a site that hadn't been altered and had been either slowly gaining or staying steady since the end of last year? Seems a little odd. Plus, the most recent updates were to do with webspam traffic, which isn't used to drive traffic to the site. Traffic has always been 90% or more organic, and it's not much, but...there's something I'm missing and I can't put my finger on it. I like a puzzle, but not with money.
