What kind of weekly view fluctuations do you experience?
I have noticed that I drop down to an average of 30 views (overall) per day during the weekend and then shoot up to about 100 a day by the middle of the week. This sometimes goes up to 150 near the end of the week before plummeting again over the weekend.
Does anyone else have a weekly pattern?
I think that is fairly typical Spongy0llama. Traffic generally seems to drop at the weekends - mine goes down by about 20% - though it always seems slightly odd to me that it should be that way; I would have thought people had more time to go online at the weekend than during the week when they're working.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention!
I honestly never gave it much thought, and I would have guessed the opposite, but looking back on my patterns for this month, I see a very similar pattern to what you describe.
While it is noticeable, I don't have as steep a decline (or rise) percentage-wise as you, which I don't understand because you have about triple the number of hubs that I have. I would have expected more stability in your statistics. (One thing that may keep me a little less drastic is having a portion of my hubs which may appeal to people ore on the weekends than during the week, such as cooking shrimp, dining out and hiking trail guides.)
So, perhaps to decrease the intensity of the variation, the answer may be to have diversification, as we are advised to have in our investments.
Keep up the great hubs.
I appreciate the question, spongy0llama. Both answers thus far are wise and offer much of consideration - Greensleeves Hubs & Tom Vogler.
I do not have the answer, yet of an answer in the form of questions and experience seeking the same with observations.
Not being critical, only offering a proposal is to use the formula of cognitive thinking as being critical first, then follow through with behaviors related to articles and those markets of specificity.
One may discover more with cause with a telescope rather than effect with a microscope. The middle man of business is where the answer regarding values and worth come in to play with affect. Affect is too an effect following cause, which is a product of inspiration. Steps 1 - 2 - 3 repeats itself from here to there always until ending.
Whether a graphing software is used or a crayola is not of significance. It is those waves surfed of consequence. What is the amplitude and the frequency of the whole, the parts (especially if grouping is utilized leading the interested reader with a hop - skip - and a jump of likeness and not difference.), and the specific of the individual hub.
Sharing a bit. This year those amplitudes and frequencies of this authors portfolio is not as consistent as the year last. Cause is posting hubs without a plan being random. Google Analytics indicates flow is more haphazard than directed while considering who the author of flow and direction is.
Once that amplitude is measured relative to the frequency consider cause of frequency or when the addition of is added to and the what being a group or the part of the whole being the profile.
Questions of marketing considerations are does one add seeking random or specific?
Does trend meaning a trend relative to a specific portfolio independent and autonomous of the the 'at large' community of portfolio predict or lead to a niche, which is unique.
Example: At the portfolio of tsmog are six elements being marketed. Two are books, of which completeness is a query at this time of the author seeking both endings. Four more are specific groupings - How to Discover the Writer's Voice, Offering Hope Through Prayer, Prose - Poetry - Essay - The Combining Form, and social commentary.
There are multiple levels of marketing and this is a best guess in a presumed order. Followers, HubPages communities via specifics of category selections, hubpages at large via search engine, then indexing at Google with their system of prioritizing.
Mine is slightly backwards. I have a couple of Hubs that go crazy on the weekends which blows up my view count. The middle of the week is when I have my slump.
I see a 40% to 50% drop each weekend. I believe that this is because I write hubs mostly on business and success. Maybe if I write about fun stuff, it will balance out.
The pattern is easy to see if you click on the graph button just above your statistics. And you can check and see if any hubs go counter-cycle and are good weekend performers, like is happening for Georgie Lowry.
I have a 40 percent decrease on the weekends when I'm struggling to get 200 views a day. My best traffic days have been Monday-Thursday where I'm around at least 300 views per day. The important thing is the CPM which you get with the views.
Not much. Maybe because I have posted a lot of variety hubs. So, not a lot of fluctuations.
I think most people have this pattern on Hubpages. You only need to look at the sitewide stats to see that traffic dips quite dramatically every weekend.

I actually have the opposite on the weekend. I see my traffic jump up to 500-600 views a day where as during the week I average around 400-450.

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?

What day of the week does traffic to your hubs drop?I watch my traffic daily, multiple times a day. I always notice my traffic drop starting Friday, then pick back up on Monday. I always thought it would climb over the weekend. Is it the same for you? Or do you see certain...

I myself work just about every day. Working at home every day is the same. In fact normally if I do something fun I do it during the week so there is less traffic and crowds. But I always spend at least a few hours every day doing some type of work on the net. How about you, anyone here work during...

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

Do you take the weekend off from writing?Perhaps not all together - when inspiration strikes it strikes, after all. But do you take the weekend off from hubbing, blogging, general online writing, rather. Do you feel it effects your readers?

Hey, guys.My own site's still got a lot of work before it goes live, but I'm trying to figure out a few things. I'm considering the idea of adding new content daily, but only on weekdays.So far, I only have my HP views as a guide, but I'm wondering how indicative they are of web traffic...
