    I am presuming I know the answer to this question, but really just want clarification. 
    My traffic, although not high by any means, has dropped significantly over the last week.  I presume it is due to Christmas closing in on us rapidly, but wondered if others were suffering the same problem, or if it was just me.
    Thoughts and suggestions on this please.

      If it helps, you could get on the Christmas specific hub bandwagon.

      Like I noticed you have quite a few toys for kids, how about a hub with something like 'christmas gift guide for kids', or 'birthday gift guide for kids' (which is not just seasonal) then you link in some of your other hubs? 'Activities for kids during the holidays' is another good hub subject for this time of the year.
      May be late for this year, but something to keep people clicking in all the time.

      Just an idea smile

        Great, thanks for the ideas izooom.  I have made myself a goal for this next year which is to do more hubs than this year, so maybe I could aim at the gift market (would help my adsense as well).
        Thanks again and Merry Christmas

    Yes, over the last few days my traffic has dropped quite significantly.  It'll pick up again once the Christmas period and holiday season is over!

    I need to think about more topics to replace the traffic that's been going to my Christmas hubs!  Maybe the finance contest will do that.

      Good luck on the contest.  Not sure if I will bother as finance is not really my thing, but like you I need to think of some topics for the New Year.

      As there are obviously a few of us with the same problem it looks like it is just the Christmas period affecting things, so am sure it will improve in the New Year.

    I think most of us are seeing that.  Yesterday was the slowest day for me since the beginning of October - I can't imagine what today and especially tomorrow (20 views?) will bring!

    My traffic has remained steady, but that is due to a popular seasonal hub I have.  I will see the drop next week.

    Ha! ha! Even advertisers are going on holidays, and we may not earn much per click.

    There may be a short lag while people eat, entertain guests and open presents, but what about all of the new iPads and computers people get for Christmas?  The kids and college students are all out of school.  They'll be on the internet in no time.

    My traffic is falling down, now it's only 1/3. I assume this is normal, I'll wait until first week of January.
