Traffic better on Fri.-Sunday

    I been comparing days lately and noticed that my traffic to my hubs seems to rise on friday to sunday, then it decreases on monday - about 1000-2000 views. Is that normal? It seems like it's a big drop number, but in actuality, it's only 20%.

    Anyone else have a drop on Mondays?

      You're weird.  Friday is ALWAYS down about 20%, Saturday up a little and Sunday up even more.  Monday is always best, with a slow decrease to the next Friday, when it once more hits bottom.  This has been going on with very few exceptions since the end of august.

      Maybe we should pool our hubs and make an account that never goes down?  Or maybe never goes up, more like it! lol

    Don't you write a lot about video games, David?  That would make sense, then, since people have more free time.  My views drop over the weekend and rebound Sunday evening.

      Yes, I was thinking that - at least for my video game hubs, not my health and fitness, but who knows, people may search more for certain topics on friday-sunday.

    Traffic patterns vary by the type of traffic. Hubs that get significant mobile traffic peak on Sunday. Do it yourself type hubs peak on the weekend. Overall Hubpages traffic peaks on Monday and trends lower through Friday and then start to climb again on Saturday.

      Yup, that's my overall traffic pattern, Peak on a Sunday or Monday after a rise over the weekend.

    Traffic to my hubs decreases on weekends, since most of the people are busy enjoying their weekends..

    Yes, mine is the exact opposite. Traffic goes down about 20% over the weekend but then picks up again on Monday.
