    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? big_smile

    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.

    Good day!

      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! lol

    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?

    Thank you wink

      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 wink
