Have you noticed a sudden decrease in traffic? For the last three days, my hubs are receiving very little traffic. What about you?
Yes I have, but in the last few days I have been busy on the farm and preparing for christmas, so haven't had much spare time to promote my hubs or visit others, so it's makes me feel a little better about traffic when I see there are others in the same situation.
Given that this is a company based in the United States and whose traffic predominantly comes from there as well, everything here is going to be impacted by the holiday season for the next two weeks.
Even if you have seasonal Hubs, we are now "in" the holidays, and people are going to be spending a LOT less time online, or even engaging in their usual behaviors. Don't be surprised if your sales stop, the majority of humans did their shopping thing online weeks ago. Likewise, don't be surprised to see sales earnings reversed by gift returns.
If you are truly chasing seasonal web traffic, you stopped worrying about Christmas at the end November at the latest, and you're working on content to post over the next two weeks that will be relevant three months from now, or even further out.
For those of us without Christmas and New Years hubs, this is not a good traffic time of year, leastwise for me. But at least I'll still exceed payout. Bottom line I've tabled the matter until January.
I have to agree. I am not going to stress over traffic and numbers again until after the holiday stuff is done. I had a severe drop over the Thanksgiving weekend too and then it came back a bit - so I think it is just holiday stuff. I do notice my hubs on Frugality do increase around the holidays though lol hmmm.
Yea, I agree with you that the sudden fall in traffic might be due to holiday, but I had never experienced such a sharp decrease in my traffic. It is something that puzzles me.
Does your Analytics confirm your decrease?
December is my best month, due to certain seasonal hubs which go mad this time of year, so I cant say I have noticed a decline, mine have been steadily increasing just like last year! hope yours have picked up again!

Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a...

Anyone else seeing a serious plummet in traffic? I have been lucky to get more than a handful of views per day the last couple weeks. Could it be because of the holidays?

My traffic had been picking up in a gradual manner. I was happy with it. Suddenly yesterday one hub got almost 400 hits, it had been holding at just under 100 per day, which I thought was good. My total traffic is at an...

Do you think it is better to unpublish seasonal Hubs? They won't get traffic during the year, so I'm wondering if it would be better to unpublish those until the next season. I am thinking about...
