    How's everyone's holiday weekend going?
    In terms of sales, mine has been dreadful. Low clicks, low sales. Although EPC is not significantly lower.

    Low clicks all weekend. Haven't seen it this bad for quite some time. Yesterday picked up though and I expect things will be back to normal by Wed.

    Less clicks = less sales. Less clicks because it's a holiday. 4th Of July will be pretty much the same.

    Warm weather/spring/summer/holiday.

    Show off.. LoL

    From what I know, digg will send you like a crazy amount of traffic for 12-16 hours and it goes away. As to traffic that might buy something, that is questionable.

    From a merchant's side, it was slow and we are anticipating that to be the same for July 4th.

    It was worse for me as an affiliate than my other holiday weekends over the last couple years. Maybe as Trust said the warm weather and people taking advantage of the outdoors has a lot to do with it. IIRC though, my July 4th weekend last year was actually pretty good and my Memorial Day weekend was better last year (closer to average sales for the weeks around that time period).

    Well, as they say: Diversify, Diversify, Diversify. I'm doing more of that lately.

    Buying something...don't know. This site was a blog, so that's not really the idea. But they did click my google ads a ton! And some of them do come back.

    Merchant side: was slow on the Friday and Saturday, but picked up quite a bit from there. Busy season is just starting for a lot of merchants.
