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 hubs get more traffic on the weekend, but not weekdays?
I have the same experience as you. My traffic drops over the weekend and spikes Monday. It has been that way for the entire year I have been on Hubpages. I think people spend less time on their computers on the weekends because they are out having fun. Then Monday comes and people are back to their routine.
My traffic stays steady across the week. I notice only a significant change when I've write something related to a current event - then I see an increase for a few days.
My traffic begins to creep up on Sundays, reaches it's peak on Tuesday or Wednesday and begins to fall on Thursday over the weekend. This makes perfect sense because the people I write for start doing what I write about on Thursday nights and are busy Friday through Sunday afternoons (that's when agility trials are held). They are home Sunday nights - Wednesday nights. My traffic patterns make perfect sense.
My experience is the same yours David.Friday's traffic drops to about 50 to 60% of my early week average with a further drop across saturday and things picking back up again on sundays and improving over the next few days before the cycle repeats.I've noticed thursdays are often my best traffic days All hubs appear to be subject to this trend.
Fridays traffic drops and climbs on Sunday and Monday. Most Hubbers report that traffic pattern. Less people use the Internet over the weekends because they are busy doing other things. One way to counter this is to write some Hubs about weekend activities, things to do outdoors, advice on fixing up a house, etc.
My hubs are mostly about gardening, DIY, tools etc. So I notice traffic starting to build Friday night and peak on Saturday and Sunday when people are off work and have spare time. Traffic then trails off on Monday. However I have a hub which is in the top 5 in Google searches, so this keeps traffic up higher than normal all summer!
My Hubpages Traffic is always stable. Although, its very good on Tuesdays.
Mine dips on the weekends and peaks on Monday. This often depends on what you write about...
One of my best performing hubs is about teaching. So you get a lot more teachers searching for stuff to use in class during the week than on the weekends. Likewise, on my own blog, I have an article that does really well during the week and tanks on the weekends. It's an article about an error graphic designers might encounter in their software, and likewise I assume that there are a lot more designers working during the week (and thus looking for this information) than there are on the weekends.
I've seen that traffic drops during the weekend. Mondays are usually my busiest days. During the week, it is pretty steady, but it is really low on the weekends.

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?

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

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...

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...

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...

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...
