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? )
well i hope so because my views went down instead today
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.
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.
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.

Before the Phantom Panda my monthly traffic was the typical sine wave, pretty much completely governed by day-of-week.After the Phantom Panda my traffic is pretty much just a straight line, day-of-week effects are now about 80% muted. And of course it's my peak traffic days that have been taken...

Today my HP traffic was the highest ever - WAY higher than it was pre-Panda. Since the switch to sub-domains, my traffic and earnings have steadily climbed. What I want to know is:Is this likely to last?Why is it happening?Just because I've endured some Google algorithm updates, am I likely to...

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.
