      Thanks for everyone who joined this conv! Let's hope things get better after these holidays!
      Also, let's hope that the reason for our traffic decrease is just about these vacations and holidays because we know they'll be ending so - the bright side- big_smile
      Although my CPM got pretty much higher than it was in the last week but the traffic has significantly decreased so what's the use of this high CPM if there's no traffic big_smile
      The saddest part here too is the decrease of traffic to my website as well sad
      But at least we still earn our daily cents on holidays unlike other people  tongue

      Definitely this - the traffic to all my sites has been pretty much abysmal since Wednesday of this week.  No worries - it will go back up smile

    Mine too.  I suppose everyone is with family, perhaps away from home and shopping, not reading hubs.

      It seems my "Ever" stats are frozen again; it should be 4000+ views higher. That is so frustrating.

    Also, kids are out of school in the US, most likely without weekend homework in most cases. My educational pieces plummet at such times. Round about Monday, however, I can easily predict that my educational pieces will pick up and massively increase in views until Christmas break.

      I did make 5 sales from my guitar blog this week though! This despite a huge traffic drop the conversions came from just 21 clicks. I would normally have seen 10 times the traffic and no conversion. Maybe Google are getting better and more selective with the traffic they send us. I like the near 30% conversion rate way better than the less than 1% it had dropped to before the last updates. I recently made the site much more mobile friendly. I think there is a lesson there!

        What did you do to make it more mobile friendly, may I ask?

          Changed to a responsive theme and made the design simpler so that it is easier to scroll the items when shopping. I can not promote it here, but links are in some of my guitar related Hubs.

            Thanks for sharing this information. We keep trying to improve our layouts. I wasn't sure what dressage meant,by the way, but looked it up and learned a new word. Thanks for info, Dressage Husband.

    Probably the holidays, as many are saying. However, my revenue us up BECAUSE of my Thanksgiving hubs, so I'm thankful for that!
