    Is it just me, or does everybody's traffic dip drastically at the weekends (esp Sunday)?

    My traffic recovers again.  But the weekend dip seems like a pattern.  I guess it fits with my theory that most people access the internet at work or school?

    It must be Googles algoritm

    I got an email the other day from a guru saying that Google has changed their algoritm and it now going to give big penalties to websites with duplicated or spun content. But the thing is that my websites are not duplicated so why is my traffic falling.

    It is happending to everyone in hubpages. It sucks cause I was making alot of money too. So I dont know what happened

    I noticed the same thing this weekend.  Admittedly I am still building my traffic, but this weekend was like a ghost town on my hubs.

    My traffic usually takes a dip on Saturdays then further on Sundays. I think more people are just busy doing things besides being at a computer.

    As for what networkandy said I did notice this past week an overall drop in my traffic and I do think it's due to the new algorithm. I think it was just an internet wide reset more or less as some Hubs I had ranked high dropped back a little,but are already climbing back up again.

    Seems it may take awhile yet for the new algorithms to finish the weeding out and sorting everything again.

    It does for me as well.

    Maybe cause people spend less time on the internet on weekends? haha

    Traffic always falls in the weekend. I don't know why. Who would find it more fun to go out than to read our hubs and buy stuff on amazon? This weekend was different though. With google's new algorithm we no longer get any substantial traffic from and other have not changed, yet...

    The weekend is generally bad I think for views.  You've got to capture the attention of those bored office workers during the week, if you're a hubber, methinks!  Thanks for all your answers!  (that was my first 'official' question asked here!)  :-)

    Interesting to hear all the discussions about the new Google policies and what they mean!

    You're probably right about access to internet at work or school.  My views tend to go down in the weekends too, but what is so frustrating is when I don't earn a cent in Adsense .. it happened to me twice already and it was not even weekend... now I hate checking my Adsense account .. I skeered of 'em Zeros. lol
