    By what percentage does your traffic dip on Sundays? My traffic is 33% below the other 6 days of the week. Is this the norm?

    Site 1: up to 50% increase on weekends (aquatics related)
    Site 2: around 20% down (technical machinery)
    Site 3: gardening related, depends heavily on weather, regardless of weekend/weekday
    Site 4: up to 50% drop from wedsnesday to sunday (health products)
    Site 5: as constant as an atomic clock. (extreme sports products)

    All retail.

    My sites:

    Sports related sites for me seem to have a 7-10% increase on sundays over all other days of the week.

    Technology related (computer news, etc) see a 4-6% decrease on weekends.

    I see a drop in traffic of anywhere between 50-75% on a business site over the weekend, all the visitors seem to be surfiing from work.

    Weekends for me are 50-66% of that on Monday to Friday. This has never surprised me as my products are sold almost exclusively to businesses. I actually still get a little thrill when I get a sale on a Sunday because I know there is someone out there who is lame enough to be working on Sunday nights as well :eek:

    I experience a 30-40% dip on Saturday and 25-30% on Sunday compared to the weekdays. Site is targeted at financial business analysts and business/financial students. Busiest hours are between noon and 11:00 p.m.

    Hi Schlottke, it's a Small Business information site covering everything from 'checking bank charges' to wage info. The traffic also dips at lunchtimes, bank holidays and Friday afternoons. With the Euro 2004 football (soccer) tournament starting Saturday, I expect another slight dip for the following weeks...

    some Sundays are good for me, some are horrible a fall of more than 50% more so if some Famous sporting event is live telecast on TV that day. Most of the hits i get from India. About 70% cricket being a sport loved by most Indians and it takes almost a day for a match, the visitors drops drastically. i wonder what will happen in few coming months when cricket world cup will be hosted in West Indies.
