Actually, my traffic always seems to jump on the weekends. My slowest days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It may have something to do with the content of my hubs....
Agreed. I'm still fairly new, but I had gone about 4 days in a row with making $1+ on Adsense then Saturday came along and I made $0.01 - Ahh, well. I got back to $0.50 on Sunday. Not too bad, I suppose.
Mondays are my best. Fridays are usually pretty good too.
Why are Saturdays the worst? Thursdays always seem to be the worst for me, because I can't wait to get to the weekend.
I hate Sundays, because Monday is coming all too soon. I have always had that Sunday feeling, even as a child, not wanting to go to school the next day. Friday evening is my favourite time of the week.
At the moment, Saturday is the only day I wake up in my own bed and get back into it at night. I also get to be at home all day Saturday, so it's become my favourite day.
I spend the rest of the week at a place I don't particularly enjoy being at.
Fridays and Saturdays are my worst days for AdSense impressions. By Sunday evening my number of impressions is picking up again.
Yes for me too, and Sundays too. I think weekends people are busy doing chores. Today I got ZERO earnings in Adsense because there is very little traffic. sux big time!
I have to agree, for views Saturdays are the worst. People seem to be busy doing other things besides reading on the internet. Let's just hope companies don't disallow internet surfing on the job!! We'll all be out of work then! Well, not all but you get the drift...
I've noticed the same thing. I think people save the internet-surfing for when they're (supposed to be) working.
Sometimes I do well, sometimes I don't. But, my traffic is always around the same.
Oh - I see!
Yes, Friday night until Sunday evening.
As mentioned previously on this thread, I too am pretty sure that many people keep most of their internet activity to office hours.
Saturdays are my worst day as well, though not as bad as it used to be. My best hubs always go downhill then, but newer ones on a different subject are almost taking up the slack any more.
I really think that the topics you write about will make a large difference here.
I used to see peak traffic at the weekends, but I have added so many hubs now, that I'm seeing a drop at weekends too now.
Yeah, all the time, I used to dread weekends, but now i am learning to take it in my stride... Traffic!!!?????
So far weekends actually not good to me as compared to week days.
Me too- traffic is always down by 10-15% at the weekend, so is my adsense.
I think the weekend is when most people are out and about during the day, catching up on chores etc and going out and enjoying themselves at night. (They can't possibly be watching terrestrial TV because it is positively dire, at least in the UK.) If they are staying in, they are watching DVD's and scoffing forbidden foodstuffs. My traffic always picks up on Mondays, when everyone has gone back to work. Maybe they're surfing the net when they should be working?
Mine is pretty level all week apart from one hub - I guess depends what subjects your hubs cover. Mine are pretty specialised hubs apart one on the forth-comming iPhone 5, which is up and down daily like a roller-coaster ride.
I think I need to so some more general hubs in the future to generate more traffic..
Weekends are usually pretty good for me, not so much the last weekend of the month though.

Are Saturdays the worst day to for hub pages....i have noticed over the last month...that Saturday seems to be the slowest day of the week....is this true....or am I imaging that to be true?

Do you find that your hub traffic varies with the time of year and/or day of the week?My hubs are generally on finance topics and I think they get less traffic in the summer and at weekends! I guess people are too busy having fun.

My earnings plummet on Fridays - I mean REALLY plummet! I might get as little as 10% of what I make the rest of the week with daily Adsense earnings, including weekends. Wonder why? Are folks trying to catch up on all the work they didn't do during the week while they were web surfing??

I'm avoiding the religion and political forums today, and posts by certain people. I'm not feeling well so I'm crankier than usual What do you like best about Fridays when you work from Monday to Friday?

Is it just me, or does everybody's traffic dip drastically at the weekends (esp Sunday)?My traffic recovers again. But the weekend dip seems like a pattern. I guess it fits with my theory that most people access the internet at work or school?

I read the above quote on another thread and was wondering if anyone here can confirm that this is the case. Do you have long hubs, over 800 words? Are they doing well as far as Google traffic goes?Should I try to keep my hubs under 800 words?
