Did anyone notice a significant fall of traffic in the last 2 days?

    Or is it just me?

      Definitely holiday. I go through this every year everywhere I write. It is strange that my 30 day totals keep going up and down though...weird.

    Yes, huge drop starting Wed.  -  picked back up today. I'm sure it was just the Thanksgiving holiday smile

    Probably holiday.  Even my junk email has dropped, thank goodness.

    Yes, web traffic everywhere typically experiences drastic drops on major holidays.  Be prepared for a totally dead week from the day before Christmas to the day after New Years.

    If it's because of Holiday then it's fine. smile

    Mines gone up in the past few weeks which has been pretty cool...ok it's only 300-360 a day but still nice and much better than it used to be.

    Holidays have a huge impact. And remember what today is - be on your toes for your gift articles!

    I found on eBay during school shopping - not to list anything other than school related - the traffic drops dramatically.

    Timing is sometimes everything.

    Happy Cyber Monday!

      Speaking of which, I am fond of name.com, so here's a plug for them. Cyber Monday only, $8 com/net doamin names.

      And, yes, my traffic was a corpse as well. big_smile

    I did not experience the problem. If anything, it was one of my best weeks ever!

    Yes....but it was all due to the holiday weekend.  Supposedly today is a huge traffic day.  We'll see.

    My traffic's only been going up.  This holiday week was the best week I've had in a while.

    NO, I haven't seen changes since mid October.  October 13th was the death nail for my hubs.  I survived the initial Panda updates, but 10-13-11 destroyed my traffic.  I'm running about 20 percent of what I was prior to that date.  No improvements yet. . .

      Wesman Todd Shawposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I took a quick look at your hubs.  Can I make a suggestion?

      This worked for me - I removed all RSS feeds, and after a week or two, my traffic came back.

        Well, here's an interesting thing.

        I have more than one username, and those with rss feeds were up or down, regardless.

        The whole Google Panda/subdomain thing has not yet settled down. I still do not know why this, my main name is slapped.

          Wesman Todd Shawposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          Was that you I was talking to?????????

          ~facepalms~

          I dang sure had a slap period too...I'm not Mr. Traffic, but it's back up to a point to where I can feel like it's not a waste of my time to be here.

          That said....I'm working more on blogger and Info Barrel these days....not for any particular reason other than being a bit burnt on looking at this site all day every day.

        I've got RSS feeds on most of my Hubs and all my pre-Panda traffic came back once the subdomains got implemented in July.  I don't think it's RSS feeds on principle that can harm traffic but whether or not you use them effectively.

        1. Wesman Todd Shaw profile image98
          Wesman Todd Shawposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          If we use the "latest hub" RSS Feed, and it's on every hub - do you think that Google considers that duplicate content?

    I'm sure the long holiday w/e had a lot to do with the fall in traffic.  Let's see what happens this week.

    Pretty good traffic here - friday and today should be fantastic for traffic, but the weekend deals also usually attract online shoppers.

    This is from a sales writing perspective though, not sure how other types of writing on here would fare.

      Pcunixposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      My traffic is up about 33%.  Very little in the way of "sales hubs" in my stack.

    My traffic was up, but almost no revenue. I certainly didn't see anything from Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Except views. No moola!

    Mine shot up today. But then again I've been writing more and tweaking the ones I've had. That was a suggestion by some hubbers when I first started. And it seems to have been a good one.

    I didn't have much of a drop for Thanks Giving, Its going to be a photo finish to see if I reach a record with Adsense but I've had some great days this month.
