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.

I been comparing days lately and noticed that my traffic to my hubs seems to rise on friday to sunday, then it decreases on monday - about 1000-2000 views. Is that normal? It seems like it's a big drop number, but in actuality, it's only 20%.Anyone else have a drop on Mondays?

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?

Hi, I know that traffic over the weekend drops, mine currently drops somewhere between 20-35%, just wanted to see how other hubbers fared. Also wondering if anybody has any tips to increasing weekend traffic with regards to topics, or anything else they can think of.Thanks in advance.

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

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...
