Will earnings/traffic be better or worse on X-mas eve and day? (In general)
While I was here on HP last year, I was not recieving the same amount of traffic - this year I have more data to compare...
I found hubpages traffic to be about the same, traffic on my blog site was actually higher than it had been in months. I considered this odd because no one was on that site all day. Traffic is fed to blogs two ways there, search engine traffic and from being shared on social networks by other members of the blogging platform.
It is normal for someone who works here to spend at least three hours a day on that site. We share blogs written by others in exchange for them sharing ours. The keywords for those blogs have higher search numbers for each word but together they are not searched that often.
Because of the nature of my work on hub pages the keywords are just plain not searched often other than by other hubbers.
I got inspired enough to go look at G.A. My traffic did the proverbial crash & burn on the 24th and 25th. Then it went up, up, and up every day until Jan 2nd; at which point it then went down, down, and down again.
Was this last year 2010-11? I sure hope January is a decent month in 2012.
I have a lot of work ahead of me in reguards to writing on here and possibly pursuing other projects.
My computer broke end of last month, so I was not able to write, even though passive earnings were higher this December than I anticipated.
"Was this last year 2010-11?" Yes.
Unless I come up with some sort of brilliant niche, I'm not having too much hope right now...
Like you, David, I don't have but one Christmas to go on.
Last year I saw a slow decline starting Thanksgiving and then really bottoming out on Christmas day with 1/2 normal views. All followed by a very slow growth until Feb. 21, when it jumped back to pre-Thanksgiving traffic. For 3 days until Panda hit.
It will be interesting to compare the shape of this years graph with last years even though the numbers are much higher.
Funnily enough I seem to receive more views near Christmas usually.
Mine is the lowest of last few months, as per usual. Every year I get the lowest traffic on Xmas.
I lost about 18% of my average traffic on the 24th, then for the 25th it went back to normal. Now, thanks to all those kids getting a certain videogame yesterday, my traffic is already up 33% higher than the daily average. May as well ride the wave while I can, eh?
Well my traffic went down on X-mas, but is now rising significantly again.
I have a feeling advertisers are going to start bidding less, though. My CPM is getting lower.
This entire holiday season has really crippled my traffic and earnings. >_<

Hi everyone,Given the rough-and-tumble year we've had with respect to traffic (Panda), I thought I'd share my experience, and maybe encourage others to share theirs, too.I can't disclose exact CPMs or traffic numbers that allow you to deduce CPMs (violation of AdSense TOS), but I will share...

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.

Anyone else getting 10% of the earnings they were getting in December despite record-high views? It’s starting to get depressing.

Have Your Earnings Gone Down In The Last Year?This is geared more toward those who have been on HP for year/s and therefore notice long term trends, but anyone can answer for sure!I've noticed in the past year that my traffic numbers have pretty much stayed the same as previous years, but I'm now...

It's only the 20th of the Month, but my earnings for this month are already 10 times greater than what it was for April last year. It's also almost the highest ever (even though CPMs are half of what they were in December) It's mostly due to increased traffic and the CPMs (compared to last year). I...

I've posted several new hubs lately, and I guess I'd be doing even worst if I hadn't. Still, I find myself becoming depressed looking at my numbers. Maybe it is better for my mental health if I just don't look at my traffic for a while. If I take a little vacation, maybe it will all be good when I...
