Traffic This Year Versus Last Year

    Well, folks. No new ytd traffic lows this weekend.

    Meanwhile... The forums will probably be a wasteland this week, but I thought I'd start this thread anyway.

    I went back and noted my exact traffic numbers for each day, July 1 through July 6, 2013. DOW was only off by one day, btw.

    I shall now avidly watch what my numbers are for the corresponding days this year.

    Will there be tears? Will there be laughter? Rants? Smashed monitors? Celebratory chicken wings? Stay tuned...

    Does anyone else want to play and get their last year's numbers and do the same?

    And, no. I wont be posting actual numbers. Only commenting on better or worse. And maybe not even that.

    Maybe I should have put this under the freeform, vacuous fun topic...

    This exercise far too depressing!

      As long as my traffic this year beats last year, I am happy. Otherwise...

    I suspect I will find I have more hub but am earning less money.  i will report back.

    Yes, my traffic beat last year. I am not surprised since I wrote about 30 new hubs since then. This is my first time I could do this, since I joined more than a year ago. smile

    Paradigmsearch, I know that my stats have increased from last year. YAY!

    Just glancing at this year and last overall, I'm seeing impressions up from last year, but the CPMs are clearly lower.  It will be intriguing to see how that pans out over the holiday.

    Well, sports fans...

    I looked at my view total for July 1, 2013.

    I looked at my view total for July 1, 2014.

    From 2012 to 2013, my traffic was 30% lower. This year it is 40% better than last year, and 10% better than 2012.  I guess better is good. I'll try not to think about how many hubs I wrote in the last two years.

    Still got a couple days of stats to go, but overall what I was seeing four days ago as a trend is continuing.

      As for me... With resignation comes acceptance. With acceptance comes peace. Muddle along from day to day I will. big_smile

    I've now decided that what I'm seeing stats-wise is very interesting.  And I'm going to find a way to put some  of those stats into a form that I am okay with and which HubPages will be okay with and after July 6th, I'll share that here.

    Okay, here's what happened to my Hubs this last weekend compared to the stats from the past three years too.  Essentially, I made graphs that compare the separate years while anonymizing the data so no one gets in trouble over any reveals.

    Please note what you see below may have absolutely no resemblance to your own 4th of July traffic weekend data when put into similar graphs.

    First graph is impressions, next CPM and last earnings.
