    So much for new subdomains not being caught smile There was a panda update on June 8th that would make it almost the 9th my time and so from the 9th my analytics shows a huge dip in traffic and it fell even further the next day. There was a slight rise though, I presume it was just the usual recovery form a weekend drop. Will have to wait this out and check what happens.

    Very interesting. My traffic was unaffected, but the 8th was when my clicks went down in flames. Dates 1,2,3: fine and dandy. Dates 8,9,10: crash and burn click-wise. Same days of week. I'm going to go check some of my hubs and see just what kind of crap ads are displaying there now...

      Follow-up

      Well, to the best of my inabilities, the ads look just fine to me.

      Paradigmsearch wanders off nonplussed...

        Since its targeted ads I guess Adsense lost its skill big_smile

          I'm going to give them a few more days. If things don't turn around, then it's back to hpads.

            I'm on HP ads but get some clicks each day. Maybe July will be a month when I try Adsense alone.

              Getting daily adsense clicks when on hpads is darn good! I hope your traffic jumps back up!

                smile Ya I know! They started just last month otherwise it was maybe 2-3 clicks a month. That's why I'm planning on switching over to Adsense for a month to give it a try. But, this crazy Panda is going to make it hard to tell which is better.

    The 8th June update was said to be a "minor" update, but it does seem to have made a big difference to some people. For me, the change was all positive - my traffic graph looks like the opposite to yours, Lobo!

      smile Glad to know. My traffic is almost constant on that bottom line till date. Any idea what could be the problem? I have no clue what the Panda hunts for! I don't have bamboo hubs - hope that's not the issue lol

        lobo, I am in the same boat, it actually halved my traffic :'( My own site was completely unaffected and continues to grow, but here just absolutely smashed and with less visitors comes less income... Oh well hope it recovers! I'll keep my fingers crossed. Hope Panda soon realises there's no bamboo in your hubs big_smile

          I guess it realized that and that's the reason it got angry sad No food tongue
          Mine fell by over 70%. I don't write anywhere else so I can't say what was affected and what wasn't.

            Still falling sad Down at about 35% level now. Not a good sign, plus i deleted some poorly performing hubs of late and not sure if it was panda or that?!? cest la vie

      I have had the same, my traffic and adsense have both recovered after an eternity in the dog house. Sure is nice to see daily earnings again, my bank account could use the help wink

    This update caused a very significant dip in traffic.  Our hub with the highest number of views has never been our favourite, in fact we only keep in online because it attracts high views every day.  The new update finally knocked this hub off the top of our list, and we thought "yes, justice at last".  Funny thing is, it's now back up there.  The silver lining is that our total number of hits has slightly recovered.  Now we need an earnings recovery (please).

    Nobody can beat my record of 497 impressions over 4 days with 0 clicks. That would be nil, zip, the empty set or donuts.

    I have had 6 such streaks of 400 + impression with no clicks.

    I know many of you secretly(or publicly) fear retribution from HubPolice ; but I am not trying to create any trouble or speculation.

    Has anybody seen such abysmal numbers from competent, but certainly no elite Hubber. (me) My Hub score is always between 87-92, so it isn't sheer buffoonery.

    My CTR is an uncanny .0042. A half of 1%. I heard 1-2% is the average CTR. Was that wrong?

    You can send me an email anon to me if you don't want thought to be public. I made the mistake of starting a thread yesterday with a few choice(not rude or threatening) remarks to this one woman. Today 4 hubs were pulled for revision. Probably a coincidence?

    Anyway if you fear something like that, but have any advice, please advise. Thanks!!
