Going From 700 Views to 11 in One Day

What is happening?

I haven’t been as concerned as some over the uncertainties of Triond, but today I am really wondering what in heaven’s name is happening.  The past couple of weeks my site has had hundreds of views.  one of the articles garnished over 1200 views.  Today, there are 11 views.  How can this happen?  Is the site down?  It seems to be OK.  What has made the difference?  Have I written something that has caused a problem and been shut down?  Has anyone else experienced this traumatic a shutdown?

I really like the ease of posting on Triond, but if no one sees what is written, what is the point of writing.  I like getting comments, either positive or otherwise.   I like reading what others have posted.  I feel a real connection to several of you Trionders out there.  I really don’t want to lose these connections.   Come on, Triond, have a heart!

    I saw the same thing I noticed the drop after my articles left the hot content.

    Yeah, it happened to my first article. To this day that certain atrocious article still has the most views, despite the fact that I did not receive additional views the day after and ever since. That was in the beginning 2009, I believe…

    Odd. Thanks for the reminder.

    I, like you, were getting over 1,000 views a day over the past few weeks. Today, my lineup has one view for the first seven or so articles, then one here and there going down the list. I get the feeling that it is a technical glitch, and that the readings are not accurate. I hope Adsense and earnings continue, no matter what the display says. Let’s see if it doesn’t clear in the next day or so. It would always be nice if the owners would send out emails telling us what is going on, but that never happens.

    There has to be a major glitch on the site today. Earlier, I noticed that I was getting “gateway errors” and as for my dashboard, the views are next to nothing and the earnings have not been updated….ugh!

    No, it is not you Christine. You are a good writer. The same thing happened to me over the past couple of days. I went from hundreds of views a day ( one day it was over 900) steady to 36 and now even down to about 9 for the whole day. I am here since 2006 and I have seen views going up and down all the time, but never this low…I hope too it gets somehow fixed soon.

    Yeah, Triond is not displaying all the views, my Adsense shows 380 views for today, often Adsense shows about 50 % views than Triond, so it means I should have had at least 180 views for today on Triond instead of just 9. Sorry, I clicked post twice in the message aboove. You can delete one of them. Thanks for sharing this Christine, at least we all know that it is another Triond problem for most of us and we are not alone.

    Mine have been down in a big way. I admit I haven’t been writing regularly, but there have been other times the same without my views dropping so far. Mine has been getting progressively worse over a matter of months.

    I think most of us are experiencing the same thing. I don’t understand it, not a clue. There is clearly a problem of some sort but at least we are all hanging in and hanging together supporting and encouraging each other and hoping for a fix soon. That says a lot for the writers at Triond. Keep writing. Keep sharing. Quality over quantity and don’t forget the social networking. Promote our work. Maybe if we all pull together we can make this work and the powers that be will see our heart really is with Triond. For me this has been my writing home for several years. I can’t just walk away but I am seeing and having the same problems all the rest of you are here and I know I am a fairly good writer because my work is doing very well elsewhere and my writing style does not change from one site to another. I am not moving articles around. I write new ones.

    No you are not alone smokeychristine. I just dropped by Triond to check the daily totals to compare them to another site that I re-publish some of my Christian articles on, and I have noticed a drop to nearly zero views for the past couple of days, regardless if I have still continued to receive comments for the same period of time.

    It is probably a glitch or something in the system or possibly the server has been attacked by hackers or something. Also, I have had many visitors visiting my articles from China and Europe, and maybe a government has blocked their citizens from visiting unauthorized US websites due to topics that the government officials find personally offensive and that could be really anything at all. A lot of strange is going on out in the world these days.

    Anyway, thank you for sharing this and keeping us informed with the current situation on Triond. It is good to know that it is not an isolated event, so it must be a glitch and not something potentially much worse.

    My views keep going up, on s0ome days more and on others less, but they keep going up. The same with comments and votes. However, my earnings seem to have frozen to mere 47 Cents. I don’t think it’s worth devoting a lot of time if we’re going to get such earnings, even if we get 6000,viwes. Expertscolumn is another good one to write. Gains on views and referrerals acummulate nicely and whenever one wishes, one may withdraw an amount. If nobody pisses off EC, up till now works well and it’s also a neat one to write on.

    Every month there appears to be a glitch. I’ve noticed it usually happens towards end of month…wonder if it may have something to do with maintenance?

    Yep – suddenly down to 7 that day then back up to 154. Hope we all got those Views eventually. I still cannot access my **Ping Pong** article after a glitch and probably never will. It stayed at 6 Views yet I have 600 V still missing!
