    Hey Wesley,
    Definitely a drop in views during the holidays. The reason being, I think is because many are not on the computer as often because of spending time with family, shopping, cooking, enjoying the company of their families, etc.

      That was my thoughts as well. Thanks for commenting.

      I think it's also true that people are more likely to surf the web at work than at home.

    Traffic dropped for me... but, then again, it wasn't super-high to begin with so I'm not sad. :'(

      I can't say that I'm sad either. Just wondering if others saw the same things that I did. Thanks for commenting.

    I see a spike in my craft articles in the month before Christmas, although crafts are generally evergreen.  Other articles don't dip, but they certainly haven't spiked either.

      The craft thing makes sense. I bet a lot of people will make crafts for Chirstmas presents. Thanks for commenting.

    A definite drop, as I dropped from an average of 600 views per day to a heart-breaking 200. sad

      I think you will find that it is not the holidays. The december Google update had no effect on my traffic.

    My traffic went up this last week, though it wasn't high to begin with.

    Wesley,
    This is a tough question for me to answer.  My traffic spiked right before and during the Thanksgiving holidays, and then took a big hit around December 10.  It went up a little before Christmas, but now has been going down a little between Christmas and New Years.

      Mine was mostly up between Thanksgiving and Christmas. About three days before Christmas it dropped dramatically. I'm attributing this to the fact that most people are spending time with their families. Thanks for commenting.
