    Cyber Monday Results
    Computerworld reported that Amazon had a two hour outage on Monday that hit around noon. Also, they said Cyber Monday resulted in a 42% jump in online spending compared with last year. Wish I could say I had the same jump.

    A small jump in traffic compared to last week (30% ish), but nothing huge. Tuesday was better than Monday for me.

    Actually Tuesday was better than Monday, so I'm waiting to see what happens today to see if there is any logic to it.

    It should get better, December 5-15 are the best days, this is just the warmup:

    "Ecommerce sites report that the busiest shopping days usually fall between December 5-15 in a given year. In 2005, the year the term Cyber Monday was coined, the busiest online shopping day of the year in the U.S. was actually December 12, two weeks after "Cyber Monday".

    December 12, best online shopping day last year. Just think of Cyber Monday as nothing but the jump off.

    Nah, you weren't "odd" at all MB. Lots of folks had results that were less than what they may have hoped for, but I agree with what T-1 (fitting nick for Trust) says about from now to the 15th. Things will continue to heat up every day now - so enjoy the fun & knock em dead MB!!

    I have seen only a tiny bit of difference in the past week.

    sucks.... Hoping that it will get better shortly.
