    DO any of you old-timers have an idea on the swings in traffic from weekends to weekdays?  A general ratio or percentage differene in your experience?

    I'm not an "old timer" here, but I'll tell you I've found. There is no pattern! Sometimes I'll have a great Thursday and a super Sunday. The next week, Tuesday might be my big day. Once it was a Saturday. It ptobably depends on what your hubs are about, too. Mine are all over the place, subject wise. lol.

      Yeah, mine are all over the place as well and my best performer is a hub I wrote just for giggles which is WAY off my normal topic

      Cool, thank you for chiming in!  I am trying to decide where to put my efforts during the week when I actually have time to write.

    For some strange reason my lowest hits are on days that end with a "y".

      Hah, I hear that.  My traffic is all over the flipping place!!!  I figure as I write more it will level out a bit.  I just wrote a kick-butt bug on top White wines for under $10 if anyone is interested!!!    Spent a week being tipsy for that one!!  wink

    I have a definite uptick on the weekends. Mondays suck, and the week just gets better from there.

    I have different categories that have very different patterns.

    My health hubs are week day favorites, with little weekend traffic.

    My winter climbing hubs don't get much during the week then spike every weekend.

    Depending on your Hub topics, some might get more traffic on weekends, and other during the week.

    Unless you find someone else who writes identically to you, other people's observed patterns aren't likely to hold up for you.

    Track your own data and over time you'll see if any discernible patterns emerge.

    Yeah, Relache, I figured topics had a lot to do with when hubs were read.

    Thank you all for the insight.  It looks like the pattern is that there is no patter..hehe
