Google traffic gone!!!

    After having a few really good days of traffic via Facebook and months of steady traffic from google, it's gone!!! The last few days I've been hovering around 20 views a day which I haven't had for more then two days in a row since last August, a month after joining! Was there a new google panda thing? It's really disappointing to have my best traffic day ever followed by basically no traffic! Today I have only 1 view from google!  Any one else experiencing any thing like this? Is it a result of the recent updates a month ago?

      This thread shows this is an ongoing problem (that is being ignored by the way.)

    I do have traffic, but it's been dropping the last week. Now the usual weekend slump is about to happen.

    I haven't had google traffic since april. Most of my traffic has been from HP or facebook. Damn you Google!!

    My page views on all hubs have halved this week. And I just thought I was starting to get somewhere too!

      That's exactly how I feel! It felt like my hard work of 10 months was paying off and now I feel like I'm struggling to get 20 views a day, it's like I've had to start all over!

    That's exactly how I felt. It took me 5 months to get to where most of my traffic was coming from google, and the day after penguin hit, ALL my google traffic was gone. I'm lucky to get 1 view from google, now. I'm having to start all over. So what is this going to take another 5 months to get the google traffic back, and then they'll throw out another black and white animal (probably a skunk) and I'll lose all my traffic again? What's the point?

      Imagine working hard for 2 years with traffic and earnings rising steadily and then losing it all overnight.  This is what some of us experienced last August.  And then being told it was because of writing awkwardly instead of it being Google who suddenly decided to downgrade the organic links to one's hubs.  This entire site is being manipulated by Google at this point.  sad

        The dishonesty of placing original content here below copies elsewhere in search is just ethically a black eye for Google. Google was once ethical and now greed has taken over.

    Yep, that's for sure. But what are we supposed to do? We're kinda at the mercy of HP and google. Aside from taking our stuff elsewhere, there's not much we can do... unless maybe we boycott? lol

      We simply do not accept silly explanations as to why this happened, for one thing.  Be careful what you believe from the powers-that-be and the normal cheerleaders on this site.  In my view, most content farms, such as this one, will perhaps never regain the standing which they once had, no matter the spin put out by those wishing it were otherwise.  Of course I wish it were not so, but it is what it is.  smile

      Start your own sites if you wish to have something you can depend on and have some say-so in the outcome.  It ain't gonna happen here! smile

    I think it goes back to the old adage to not keep all your eggs in one basket. Spread your online writing to other sites, your own website etc.

    Also we should do what we can to not be too reliant on Google. Concentrate on building links for direct traffic, social sharing and do on. I also wonder about how we can get more traffic from Bing and Bing powered search. I get less than 1% traffic from Bing, but they have nearly 30% share of search. Why do we not get more traffic from them?

      I've been getting fairly good traffic from Bing and Yahoo lately.  I wish Google would bite the dust as they control too much of the SERPS already. smile

        I haven't gotten much traffic from bing at all, maybe one view in the past 7 days. Most of my traffic has come from hubpages.com or my subdomain.

        I write for several different sites, but this one was (I repeat WAS) by far the most lucrative. I'm still trying to get blogs off the ground, but they take quite awhile to get started.

          I was informed by another writer here I have 10's of thousands of links from Bing even though I don't backlink at all, so obviously they are gaining ground on Google a bit.  I certainly am rooting for them. smile
