    Every weekend like clockwork.  We should make Hubbing mandatory on all weekends.

    How weird, I was thinking the exact same thing today  My traffic is down 20% over the weekend usually. I thought it was due to my hubs being more business focused, but looks like it perhaps isn't. I agree hubbing on weekends should be compulsory!

      Nope - join the crowd smile And this weekend it is even lower due to the holiday.... yipeeeeeeee!!!!  My 550-650 is now 450!  Most weekends it is more like 495-450.  Not this one.

      If this were a full time job, with benefits, I'd agree with you about putting in  SOME compulsory weekend time. But frankly, I'm not making enough money here to be willing to put in command weekend performances. I get where you're coming from tho.

    My Hub traffic is down on weekends, particularly on Saturdays.  I guess a lot of people take the weekend off.  Since I work a regular jog, I have to write primarily on weekends.  My time on HPs is a lot on weekends.  I am here, but many others aren't.

    I don't think I have enough traffic to notice the difference.

    Most weekends my traffic drops a bit. Holiday weekends like this Labor Day weekend, and other major holidays, I notice a more significant drop. Everyone is out doing things, driving, celebrating with family. I don't worry about those weekend drops. I use it to update my hubs or look for new ways to try and draw traffic when people are around.Or I go off and celebrate a little free time.

    Yes, my traffic goes down every weekend. Apparently people use the internet more during the weekdays when they are supposed to be working!  I have tried to add some recreational / weekend types of hubs to see if that helps, but am not sure if it helped significantly yet.  That's okay though, because it gives me more motivation to write more hubs for the next week's crowd.

    For some reason my traffic goes up. Really not sure why, maybe I am too new to answer this question.

    I have a 30% drop that starts on Fridays. Traffic moves up on Mondays. My best days are Tuesday through Thursday. Holiday weekends are the worst because it's one extra day of low traffic.
