Hope for New Traffic Surge above Quota

    OK it is very early days, but hope springs eternal. There are intriguing signs of a traffic surge above the existing HP Quota (sustained traffic) over the last 2 days. The existing Quota has applied for the last 6 weeks since Dec 21 2014. Traffic has surged above the threshold over the last 2 days, especially for mobile stats. Lets hope that we are seeing a traffic boost after waiting for almost 12 months for any sign of growth. Time will tell whether these stats signal a real traffic boost. Fingers crossed!

      Thanks for the hopeful heads up, janderson99. We are over do. It's been rough.

      This just has to be because I've recently deleted a bunch of Amazon ads.  Why, my subdomain is up at least .oo5% lately; the surge is surely coming from that!

      (Hope really does spring eternal, doesn't it? big_smile)

      Let's hope it's not a pre-panda traffic surge or a hub that's gone viral.

        The viral hub thing occurred to me, too.

        The summer traffic doldrums are going to show up sooner than we think. I am dreading the income reduction. Our only hope is that G gives us a higher quota; that would at least mitigate the damage.

        If you look at the Global, 6 month view, there has been no recent surge in traffic:

          No you're right. I couldn't get the graph up on my phone so I assumed there actually was a surge. (I much prefer to look at the global stats over US only too).

          Same pattern => small rise over last few days - time will tell. Here's hoping!

    I bet the 45-year summary of traffic is what did it!

    Just kidding - this is great news - onward & upward.

    Good news. I'm seeing it, too.

    I thought there'd be more enthusiasm here. There is a real chance this could be a migration to a new, higher traffic level. I guess we will know soon enough.

    Really good news, I have seen it this morning. Fab.

    Well, there was a drop. But this Tuesday was still higher than last Tuesday. Plus, my own traffic seems to be a little better these days.

    Janderson & WF - thanks for posting the info and sharing your (very expert) opinions.  I hope the ups get uppier, and the slopes don't slide as low as we go forward.
