Is your traffic lower on weekends?

    Mine almost always is. Once in a while, I'll have a $20 or $25 Saturday or Sunday, but otherwise, my weekend traffic and earnings are lower than they are during the week. How about you?

      I think if the hub is something about what a person does on a weekend theirs a chance you could get more. I think its random and has a lot do with the topic perhaps....

      Example: swimming,videogames, and other things people might possibly search for on weekends, but who knows?

    On some of my hubs traffic increases on the weekend, as does my making money. wink

    Some lose traffic, but still get clicks. So, either way I continue to make money. lol

    Yes, at the moment I find that my views plummet between Friday afternoon and the middle of Sunday (UK time).

    Actually, Monday is my best day of the week traffic-wise, followed by Saturday. Midweek is the worst for me. My traffic is definitely down a bit on Sundays, but the people that remain are shoppers, because I usually sell a lot more on Sundays. smile

    My best days are mid-week. I guess it all depends on the subject matter of your hubs? Mine, however, are all over the place! lol

    Some of my Hubs do better during the week, and others on the weekend.

    MY own websites do much, much better on the weekends. I get a good 40% of my sales on weekends on my sites.

    Hubs however seem to be about the same from day to day.

    Yep, it's lower on the weekends, but I have no idea why, right now it just is for me big_smile

      Probably because, unlike us, most people have better things to do on the weekend than surf the Internet.

        Oh, no! Say it ain't so, P! Does that mean that eveyone's web surfing when they're supposed to be working?? I always wondered about that...

          That would be my guess.

    The stuff that gets traffic via searching goes down, but the comedy stuff stays pretty consistent and sometimes goes up a little.

    Yes it does, about 30%.

    Not so much when the World Cup was on, as I have a lot of soccer hubs.

    My biggest earning days are almost always Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, although Mondays have begun to strengthen for me, and Thursdays have begun to drop off a little.

    You could try and write hubs with titles such as "what to do on a sunday" or something!

    All the traffic and earnings are about the same, weekday or weekend.

    My earnings drop significantly on the weekends, but only because amazon shipments drop off. However, my amazon orders always rise nicely on the weekends, setting me up for lots of shipments during the next week.

    As far as actual traffic goes, I keep a spreadsheet to monitor my own stats, and I update it on a daily basis, even though I usually only fill it in once a week.

    I can not determine that any particular day or days gets more or less traffic on a regular basis than any other day or days. Not on an overall basis or on a particular blog or hub account either. All of them have random highs and random lows.

    Yes - about 30% lower!

    My best traffic is always Mondays/Tuesdays. I do tend to get a lot of amazon sales on the weekends though.

    Ayup.  Usually starts falling off on Friday, though sometimes Friday takes a big jump.  Sat and Sun drop 20% and sometimes Mon is off some too.

    Anything over $15 on a weekend day is a bonus and unexpected for me.

    But that does not count e-book sales.  Sometimes I will sell two or three over the weekend, which more than makes up for the ad loss.

    Saturdays are worst, but Sunday afternoon can be pretty good.

    For the people who lose significant traffic on the weekends, is any decent portion of your hubs product focused?

    1. EmpressFelicity profile image83
      EmpressFelicityposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      For me personally, the biggest drop is from my highest-traffic hub - which is a "how to" hub rather than a product-oriented hub.

    Well, shucks - I'll have to eat my words. Today was one of my best earning days of all time!

      I would say generally it is lower, but like you habee, sometimes it spikes. smile

        Which eye, Laurel?

    Actually, my traffic seems to be higher on weekends.  Funny that.

    I think it was the right eye Laurel was keeping on Habee.  That leaves Laurel with only one eye free, so write BIG!
