All right, look. Like most of us, my traffic falls some on the weekends, but today, on Sunday no less, it is the highest I've seen yet. Not only that, but after deducting for HP traffic I'm showing a 5% CTR! True, they were low value clicks (a couple paid nothing at all) and I wish whoever arranged this joke hadn't included that part, but I'll take 'em anyway.
'Fess up people, who is it? What's next, 0 traffic for a week?
Same thing happened to me this weekend - great traffic PLUS high adsense earnings!
Oh..never thought an experienced hubbers encounter also this traffic matters..thought you always had a high traffic all throughout..
As a first timer, it's an encouragement for me to gain a high traffic but so sad to know it's getting lower this weekend compared to the first 5 days after the publication of my first ever hub.
It's all good! Just normal variation usually. My figures are above average today.
You're right, of course, Earnest - when you have so little traffic or clicks a small swing results in enormous percentage changes. Not statistically significant.
If have to say that you take all the fun out of it, though. I'm hoping it was some gorgeous guardian angel, whacking me with her wand or something, and you ruin it all!
My Adsense was the lowest I've seen it in a loooong time yesterday. However, today is almost twice as much as my normal daily average. Go figure. My views were lower yesterday, but not abnormally low.
Can I ask? Which is more good to increase a traffic of your hub?
A visitor from hubpages itself or from outside?
The best way to increase traffic to your hubs is from outside, since Hubbers usually do not click on ads. If making money does not matter to you, getting local traffic is often easier in the beginning, but in the long run search engine traffic is better because it lasts.
Thank you so much for the info..I've been really excited to monitor the traffic of my hub. It's good in the first 5days right after the publication but then it eventually fell down which was so disappointing. But anyway, I know I don't have that much good hub so I guess it's not a big issue at all. I'll just try to publish a good hub that could attract more readers. Thank you once again for paying attention to my question

Weird thing, yesterday all my numbers crashed back down to earth and hit hard. Anybody else? 3rd highest pageviews this month, and yet adsense clicks and amazon orders were painfully low, I mean like really super low all of a sudden, just yesterday. Noone else had any problems?

There seems to be a shortage of traffic-related threads around here. So I thought I would start one. Looking good.

Okay, today I have noticed drastic decrease in page impressions and record low earnings in my adsense account. I had not thought before today that google algorithm change will have such a effect on our traffic and earnings. Today, I find myself what I was three years back. Only a few cents per...

Between server problems at Hubpages and stuff being out of whack. Then ebay crashing on one of my best traffic days. I am totally frustrated. One of the busiest online shopping days and alot of my work is just not up to speed - due to forces quite beyond my control. Online shopping peaks much...

This morning I checked my google account and for some reason it was totally crazy yesterday. It was way over 11 percent click rate and had 90 clicks that paid nothing. So I am worried what google will do as they may think it looks dodgy. Anyone ever have that happen to them as I have had adsense a...

Well... I had thought about the 30 in 30 challenge but never got around to it for various reasons. With me being in Iraq, my time is divided amongst many, many things and therefore, I do not get to make it online every day. However, I really wanted to do 30 in 30 so I had to make myself a...
