Should I Just Go Fish

    Am just venting warm air, here.
    All week, have seen great things on my articles.
    Red Arrows on more than half of them, some double red.
    Two hubs tipped the 90 score back and forth for three days -and one jumped to 92.
    Great, right?
    Today, six blue arrows and scores back to the 80s! Ugh.
    { I mean, I enjoyed the 80s. Crazy clothes, great tunes, Blondie, the Go-Go's -- but oh, the 90s }
    Sigh. Anyway, how is everyone else doing?

    James.

      My traffic, that only returned at the end of September after being absent for a year, started falling on Tuesday, and today as is low as it ever was.

      Sigh!

        Oye, Izzy, explains those big eyes in your avatar. lol.
        My traffic has always been pretty steady. No major fluctuations.
        Am not certain that is a good/bad thing. Just is what it is.
        Thanks for sharing.

      Love your sense of humor, James. Yes, it is exhausting isn't it? My traffic is as slow as molasses dripping from clogged up, sticky old spout. Jeeeez!! I'm a newbie so I've never seen good traffic. I've had my share of red arrows, even double reds, but it's all relative. One thing that I think is good is that HP earnings have continued to trickle up, one . . . penny . . . at . . . a . . . time, ssssslowly but surely increasing my earnings. Hang in there fellow hubber. I am.

        lol. Love the molasses analogy, very clever.

    I think it is gravity with mine, they get to a certain level then gravity takes over and grabs them. I have noticed that the same ones which get the red arrows for a few days get followed by the blues. My stats. fluctuate more than they use to, but I do not think it is the thermals that are causing it smile

    I cannot really comment on my hubscores as they are not a stat. I look at or even notice very often.

      I'll go with gravity. Double Red can often be followed by blue as the threshold is higher in expectation in the algo.

    Fishing is always great! The mullet are running along the Atlantic beaches in Florida, with lots of predators following. Wish I was there right now!

      Hey! Right, I heard Sandy is causing a big move of fish up the coast.

    I'm not doing very well, either. Though my earning reports seem to always be pending for days until I see them, so who knows? Maybe when I finally get caught up I'll feel like I'm doing okay.

    If it's any comfort, nearly the entire web is in the same boat: traffic almost always drops on Friday, drops more on Saturday, recovers a tiny bit Sunday, then climbs to a peak by Wednesday.

    It's not so obvious when you look at your own traffic. However, when you look at a traffic graph for an entire big site like HP, you can easily use the dips to figure out where the weekends are. It's clear from those bump-bump-bump graphs that the weekend starts on Friday for a lot of people! My theory is that everybody's web surfing st work. wink

      Yup, my traffic always goes down on the weekend, starting on Friday. And it comes back by Tuesday and Wednesday, the little that I have. I sure will be happy when I see one and two hundred views per hub, per day like I hear some hubbers talking about. Ho hum. (sigh)
