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...
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.
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.
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.

I don't know whether the rumoured ongoing algorithm update over the last week has anything to do with it, but traffic on this article has returned to September levels.

Will earnings/traffic be better or worse on X-mas eve and day? (In general)While I was here on HP last year, I was not recieving the same amount of traffic - this year I have more data to compare...

I'm extremely under-impressed since the **Maven** takeover. Yes, I regard it as a hostile takeover, and not a friendly merger!My earnings and traffic are WAY, WAY DOWN compared to last year at this same time, when they were way, way UP!!While I am still making payout each month, I am seeing a...

It's only the 20th of the Month, but my earnings for this month are already 10 times greater than what it was for April last year. It's also almost the highest ever (even though CPMs are half of what they were in December) It's mostly due to increased traffic and the CPMs (compared to last year). I...

Have Your Earnings Gone Down In The Last Year?This is geared more toward those who have been on HP for year/s and therefore notice long term trends, but anyone can answer for sure!I've noticed in the past year that my traffic numbers have pretty much stayed the same as previous years, but I'm now...

Anyone else getting 10% of the earnings they were getting in December despite record-high views? It’s starting to get depressing.
