    Is anyone else experiencing this? My traffic is up about 15%, 2 days in a row on the same figures last week.

      Yeah, just noticed I have a significant increase in traffic. Good to see. Didn't know there was a Google update, interesting.

      There's been Google update but don't be surprise when your ranking dropped and no traffic at all.

    Google update. Traffic is up across almost all sites substantially.

      Mine isn't up substantially.  It's always higher on the weekends, and this one is no different.

      What kind of update? How would this update increase traffic throughout the niche sites.

    I usually get more traffic at weekends anyway but got a nice boost in earnings on Saturday too smile Maybe because it's summer so people have more time off?

    It is a nice uptick. I reckon you will see it more on summer-orientated sites like Dengarden, which is doing very well.

    Currently have a virus so don't ask for numbers, lol.

      Most of my hubs are on Dengarden and traffic peaks in early summer around May and then slowly declines towards September. It does naturally increase at weekends as people tend to their home and gardens, but traffic for yesterday (Sunday) ended up 27% higher than that for the previous Sunday.

    My traffic has been high the entire summer, but I've not seen the increase this weekend (also dengarden). My hubs are getting out of season right now, so I'm not surprised.

    Well, it is a solid increase for me. Maybe late summer is my time... plenty of tree care.

    I'm also seeing an improvement on the main site but the numbers are small.

      The rankings of my hubs have definitely increased. My tomato hubs were around #2 for their main term, but they are all #1 right now.

    Just started here, but did notice a large spike in views over the weekend. I was hoping it was from some promoting on social media, but looks like I could be wrong.

    I had a huge increase in traffic on Friday!  The rest of the weekend was pretty normal.  I was pleasantly surprised!

      Don't be surprised If it drops down your ranking next week and there'll be no traffic at all If you go down to #5 or more.

    Contrary to the observation of many fellow Hubbers, my traffic hits a decline from mid-Friday to mid-Sunday every week. This has been happening for the past many months. But sudden reversal of this trend last week is a welcome change.

    1. eugbug profile image98
      eugbugposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      It depends on what you write about. Home and garden articles tend to do well at the weekend because people usually do home maintenance and gardening at this time of the week. Other topics are more popular Monday to Friday when they are used for reference by e.g. schoolchildren. I have an article about electricity, and traffic peaks on Wednesday for some reason. Still haven't figured out why!

    I usually notice a slowdown on weekends, but this weekend my traffic was unusually high. Then on Monday it reached an all-time daily high, and so far that's continuing into today (Tuesday).

      eugbugposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      Same here. Traffic is over 25% higher than last week.

    Traffic is up considerably this week over last but the biggest difference has been the much higher CPM's.

    Have anyone else experienced a significant increase in CPM.

      I have, I just noticed it a minute ago.

      Me too. In addition to the increased traffic, the latest reported CPM is significantly higher.

    Yes! And also, big props to the HubPages team for staying relevant through updates and bouncing back even through the sticky, tricky ones. I'm so grateful!

    CPMs are through the roof right now, I've only seen them this high during the peak of the holiday season in December.

    I'm assuming this is just temporary.
