I haven't been promoting my Wizzles too much, so I can't really speculate. But I'm seeing a lot of movement on my own sites, in both directions. The Hubbers I stay in contact with were smashed yesterday.

Contributors to the October Google SERPs topic at WMW are also noticing a shake up.

I see continual upticks in Google traffic and in Google Adsense $. Slow and steady.

I'm not sure what smashed means. In my part of the world, that means drunk, but it doesn't seem to fit the context unless they are so sad that they went out and drank away their sorrows.

Smashed means they were hit hard by the latest Panda update and are reporting losing 90% of their traffic.

I don't write on Squidoo so I don't know if anything is going on there in term of changes in traffic.

My Wizzley traffic is looking pretty normal today. I don't have too much yet, so it's hard to tell though. But I'm glad to hear that yours is steady and moving upward.

Wizzley as a whole experienced a slight drop (7 %) in the first October week. But now we're on the upswing again.It's all good.

Next week we'll start our Holiday Contest and then we're gonna kick some serious online butt.

I'm looking forward to the Contest! And I'm glad that Wizzley is on the upswing. Thanks for calming my jitters, chefkeem.

Digby, I am not sure if you understand that Panda updates every 4 to 6 weeks.  So anything that you have had working well over the last several months through the first couple of Panda updates should not be affected by any new updates.  It would only potentially affect new pages.

That being said, my Squidoo account has not been affected at all negatively by Panda this year, nor has Wizzley.  If anything they are increasing not decreasing.  Hubpages is an entire other issue.

There are always some fluctuations in traffic due to seasonal issues, and other outside forces.

Like Paula, I made it through the Panda Updates okay and have actually enjoyed higher traffic stats since this all started earlier in the year (especially at Squidoo). Prior to Panda, my traffic was sporadic -- high then dropped off the radar for a while then spiked again. 

I have been working diligently to make sure I diversify enough so that if one site I write for is hit, I still have an income elsewhere. 

As with Jimmie, my Wizzley pages are enjoying a steady stream of adsense (small but steady) and are getting, overall, 60% Google traffic -- thanks to the awesome Wizzley team and their foresight!
