    Traffic Down Today?
    My traffic, according to AdSense stats, seems to be a bit down. But possibly AdSense reporting is a bit delayed.

    This is sort of a long holiday weekend. Valentine's Day followed by a 3 day govt/bank employee weekend.

    Mine dropped 50% the last 3 days in a row......typical.....they piss you off only to give you a GREAT day just when you are about to give up and it makes us keep on tolerating their BS. I love how we THINK we are in control of our own success......not with Adsense!

    I am talking in general. My AdSense stats are a quick and easy way to monitor traffic, and they allow you to quickly track traffic to specific sites or sections of sites via the channel reporting.

    Do you mean Google SERP traffic? If so that's been solid all year here. Ask is up-and-coming offering nearly as much traffic as Yahoo while Microsoft is a distant 3rd with their horrible update pace. Been seeing some surges in Facebook traffic the past couple days, and both Digg and delicious are a bit slow for me at the moment.

    Actually, I mean all, including Google SERP traffic. I am inquiring if there is a downturn due to a exterior factor, like in this case, a holiday weekend. For example, on Christmas day, ALL traffic goes down, regardless of source.

    Some of my major sources of income/traffic depend on young to middle age women, particularly those with families. (Monday nights, back when MNF used to be on ABC, were always great nights for me!) So I am wondering if the Valentine's weekend activities perhaps took a small bite out of this traffic. It's nice to identify an outside factor, if there is one, before panicking.

    I actually did have a falling out of one site in the Google SERPs from #4 to about #25 a week ago, but I have already accounted for that.

    I have noticed this past week has been weird across all of my ad campaigns. My CTR's are great but traffic is simply down.

    With the stock market there are unseen "market movers" - people making trades so large they move the entire market.

    But with SERP and ad traffic how do we account for these strange fluctuations? Maybe people are going into recession mode? Has Google messed something up? Do people just subconsciously move with the herd?
