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
yes it is down, and youre right, Fridays and weekends are for families as well, usually people are out, it is spring too, nice weekend Richie!
Web traffic does tend to decrease on weekends. I have been following this trend by utilizing a spreadsheet that I created for my over 300 articles on eHow. I only mention the number of articles to show where I am drawing my information from .. Monday's are usually the higher traffic days as I get more views and more earnings on Monday ..
I believe this happens because there are still quite a few web surfers who either don't have a computer at home or they have a slow computer, so most of their surfing occurs during the week, at work, on company time ..
Thanks for the question Richie, because you just gave me an idea for a new article ..
I have Hubs that get more traffic over the weekends, and some which clearly do better during the week.
I do. Both on my hubs and blogs probably because the topics I write on don't do well on weekends.
In the winter traffic was great. The moment it got nice out my traffic dropped and so did my Adsense revenue. On Mondays through Thursday I always see an increase to my traffic whether it be Winter or Spring.
I have also noticed that my traffic level is lower on the weekends.
It solely depends on your content. Certain topics get more traffic during the weekday, certain topics get more on the weekends.
Generally, most find that traffic does drop a bit, but it certainly is not always the case!
My traffic dropped to practically nil this past week, I am wondering what I can do....
My traffic seems to increase over the weekend but I think it is because I have many RV and Camper trailer repair hubs. It all depends on one's content subjects, I suppose.
I wonder if Google recognizes past success by a writer and indexes their article faster than they normally would? I published a new hub last night and it is already #8 on the first page when using a generic search for the subject matter. I am certainly not complaining, just wondering.
I find Tuesdays and Wednesdays are my slow days. Not that I get a bunch of traffic anyway but those seem to be my slow days.
Oh totaly, its to be expected , weekends are when the kids take over the computer lol
Its funny, I left the hubs for a couple of months, and havent written any in a long time , but the 17 I have written, while I ws gone made me some pretty good money I was like, totally surprised Goes to show I need to write , like a whole bunch more, I think , next week or so I'll establish a regular routine and join the hub challenge
My hubs also suffer from less viewing on the weekends. For me, it's a combination of reasons. My home internet service is super slow and the weekends are when the kids are off so more time is spent with them. Granted, if my service were better, I'd likely log on at night but then again, by not being able to it forces me to find more 'creative' things to do with my husband. By virtue of owning my own business, I have to be logged onto the internet at all times therefore allowing me to surf or write when I have free time.
what kind of internet service do you have? Could it be that your computer needs some tuning up?
No, it's not the service, it's the location. We live out in the country and don't want to pay the high price for Hughes Net. When we're at work, we're in town and the service is much faster.
the computer it self is brand new, not even three months old. in fact, we've had problems with it being too new for some of our programs! LOL
LOL thats good to know , have you checked clear wire for wireless though? there has to be some kind of wireless signal where you are , or maybe not , sometimes with wireless you can get a plan with so many hours per month so it dosnt cost so much, just some thoughts anyway
I too suffer from a dive during the weekends, although interestingly I only notice this on a monday when I check my profile, I am usually far from my computer come the weekend!!
Thanks for your replies guys, I think it is definitely Saturdays that are quiet for me !
On hubpages, I'll often drop somewhere between 5 and 15% on the weekends. On a site like associatedcontent, I usually see a 30-50% drop on the weekends, but my daily traffic is also much higher. I write about the same thing on both websites - mainly fitness and mixed martial arts.
Yes my traffic typically falls by around 20-30% on weekends, my biggest days are almost always tuesday, wednesday, thursday. Although I find that my earnings do not suffer too much on weekends, certainly not as much as my traffic.
My traffic falls quite a bit. I think less people are online on weekends. My biggest days are usually monday-wednesday, then it starts dropping off.
My traffic drops a fair bit at weekends, except for a few hubs that do better, probably because they are toy hubs and appeal to the kids
Spring/Summer - Traffic goes down due to people hanging with friends, going to movies, being with family, etc.
Fall/Winter - Traffic remains steady or goes up due to the cold weather outside, the rain, etc. In other words, people stay indoors and stick to their computers.
My traffic is usually up on the weekend, but during the week it's up, of course there are fluctuations like any site, but generally they are the same, but I do have a good few art hubs, so maybe some people do hobbies like that anytime, so traffic is always high!
I've noticed this same trend not only on my hubs, but on other websites I manage.
Every single one of my websites has a drop on the weekends. In fact, the high volume for them seems to be 9AM EST through 5PM PST. I think it is people at work or school surfing the web. Late night and weekends have fewer people.
My highest traffic is Monday to Thursday, and I noticed a huge drop during Easter.

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?

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...

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...

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...

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?
