      Sometimes. Actually, most of the time.

      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....

      Brie, in what way?

      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.

      That, for the most part describes what I often feel too.  My guess is the start to the next week, but Fridays are great, even if you are tired.  Rest is coming...

    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 meant for ad-sense...not in general!

      I've  noticed the same thing. I think people save the internet-surfing for when they're (supposed to be) working.

        I've felt that way for a long time smile

      Sometimes I do well, sometimes I don't. But, my traffic is always around the same. wink

      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.

    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.
