I think hubpages may become a Monday-Friday hobby for me, things are so bleeding slow at weekends on here!
Its not just the search engine traffic either, its the lack of comments, the lack of hubs published, a slow forum, this whole place dies!
Does anybody else get a bit demoralised or even bored at the weekend on here?
What you need is a life outside of hubpages. The only reason I am here over the weekend is because I stopped smoking 10 days ago and dare not go near a bar.
Thanks for the link by the way.
I would like t give ya encouragement mark, I quit for 10 days 2 weeks ago and that's as far as I got, good luck...
No worries it's the least I could do for cheering me up that day Theres some more old uni notes for me to publish, so I will probably do you another couple of those backlinks..... no reader wants old news, so its all good pointing them in the right direction.
As for smoking, I am a smoker myself..... and I know exactly how you are feeling. I have been trying to pluck up the courage for another crack at quitting. I managed 3 weeks once.
Good luck with that. They say that the 3rd week is the hardest, so get yourself to week 4 and you will be home and dry
Climbing the walls right now. But I have started a website in honor of the occasion: http://illquitsmokingifyouquitdriving.com/
I will be building it out soon.The frog made the header and as soon as I can think straight I wilkl wrote some content for it.
Good stuff, always taking the positives out of not too pleasant situations I see
I will have to check that site out at some stage, probably in the winter..... when I seem to develop that a smokers cough (which at 24 isn't too encouraging).
Anyway, believe it or not..... I have something to do in the 'real world' now!
Mark, are you going to write a hub on quitting. I've tried so many times, seems the only thing that ever really worked was being pregnant -- now that won't work for guys and I'm too old to go down that road again. And I need to quit. I don't want to facing another freaking cold winter outside just to have a smoke.
I generally don't go on the internet over the weekend. I just happen to be unusually bored right now.
It might be because people like to spend weekends outdoors. Its going to change in winters when everyone stays in.
I do, I feel like I am the only one on here when I sign on on the weekends.
I notice there are periods when it takes 5-10 minutes for a new post to show up in forum. These are the times I can't believe what I see. And don't come back at me this is impossible. It happened.
I have seen it even longer than that Pacal, I think 14 minutes the longest I have ever seen - and that was a weekend
At busy times, the posts at the very bottom can be less than 14 minutes old!
You are so right ryan..things are frustratingly slow on weekends.I am new to hubpages but me so addicted to it that it is really demotivating.I wont like to publish my hubs on weekends!!
Hey - want to pledge to quit smoking with me?
NO!..lol I just went through ten days of trying....lol, I need to smoke another couple months until my nerves are ready for another attempt...lol
Maybe i should. I so desperately want to kick the habit. IT'S SO HARD!
I just spent 6 hours researching and writing a hub on a saturday. I now need a nap. And chocolate.
The discussion started out with "Traffic is so slow here on the weekends that it's making me nuts." It developed into a mutual support group for smokers trying to quit. Makes the problem of slow hub traffic look like chump change.
I'm not a smoker but I appreciate watching how smokers are empathizing with each other...it's like a family around here.
I am one of the people who take the weekend off from HP since I spend five continuous days hubbing... Weekend is my rest.
I'm using my weekends to work on other projects between checking forums.
Not sure how much traffic is around but with other sites I have learned that the weekend just doesn't pull enough right now, so I am trying to get ahead on some of these other things I have started.
Mark good luck on the smoking. I recently quit only to go back to it. Gonna take some time.
Def slow on the weekends...at late at night (that's EST around here in Canada). I'm lucky to see one peep out there late at night! All the action seems to take place during the day and the week day.

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...

My traffic just dropped by about 33% similar to like on weekends. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Some of my hubs that normally give me 100+ views during the week have dropped to way below 100 like...

My adsense data is pretty limited because I still only have a small number of views (like 2000 hubviews). But I seem to always get the bigger payout clickthrough on weekends. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are...

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your...
