Hi All, I'm submitting this to the forum hoping someone will have an explanation to my quandary... Back around March I got my first payout from Hubpages which was a pleasant surprise; especially since I had been really busy with school and life and had basically ignored my hubs and the site for about a year. Naturally, the payout peeked my curiosity and I began to check my earnings on a regular basis, preening my old hubs and writing new ones with the expectation that I had finally reached some sort of status quo that would at the very least continue. Of course, I hoped it would also continue to increase incrementally. Every day was like Christmas as I saw my earnings go from around .70 per day to (sometimes) almost $2.00. I thought, finally - I'm starting to see some sort of payout for all the hours I put in writing good hubs. This went on for about two months, then my earnings dropped drastically and have stayed low at literally pennies a day. So, I wondering...
What caused the sudden jump in earnings and what caused the sudden slump in earnings when basically nothing has changed?
Has anyone else experienced these kinds of changes?
I mean, why would my hubs suddenly started showing some financial success when I'm doing nothing to care for them and as soon as I start showing an interest again, they just as suddenly stop earning any kind of encouraging amount. This is really kind of frustrating and confusing.
I look forward to your replies.
Have you seen a sudden big drop in views?
A lot of your pages seem to be missing from Google search. (try searching for page titles or snippets from the page).
Could be Panda. There is a lot on Panda in these forums.
Depressing for all concerned...

How long did it take you to make your first pay out and how many articles did you write until you did? I am only curious.
