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
I noticed that long ago, not just on hubpages, i run other sites, and the tendence is the same, a drop arround 50% on weekends.
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 google.com. google.co.uk and other have not changed, yet...
Mine seems to bump up during the weekends, it's tuesdays and wednsdays that my traffic drops.
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

Does anyone else suffer from drop in traffic on weekend? I think its because most people are off work and go out shopping and socialising more..sorry this question may have been asked before

Mine almost always is. Once in a while, I'll have a $20 or $25 Saturday or Sunday, but otherwise, my weekend traffic and earnings are lower than they are during the week. How about you?

Wow....this weekend has been so slow. No amazon sales and only a few bucks from adsense. My traffic is down about 35%. Before this weekend, I had very steady traffic that rarely fluctuated (except on and around the 4th). Luckily, I had some high earning days earlier on the month so I'm still on...

I understand that on weekends people aren't sitting in front of their computers as much, so there are less searches and less hub views, but why does taffic to hubs dlow down on friday? Are that many people working a four day week, or is there some other reason. Any tips on how to boost...

Any one who experiences rise in traffic over the weekend?Most of the times, hubbers experience a relatively low traffic over the weekend. Are you an exception, meaning that your traffic goes up?

Not sure exactly why, but nowadays my weekend traffic to Hubs does better than weekday traffic. Has anyone else seen this? Perhaps people are sitting on beaches during the weekends looking for something to read?
