Not being run over

by Volker Weber

Urban wondered how a link from would affect traffic on vowe's magic flying circus. Simple answer: hardly.

Saturday and Sunday are slow days since my site is mostly read from work. It's just so much better than working. :-) Friday is also slower than the rest of the week, since many people go home early. What you can see last Friday is that visits remained up while page impressions went down. This is the typical pattern if there are more "accidental" users — people who only read one page and then go away.

So it is noticeable if you read the statistics carefully, but it does not affect the site in any way. No worries ...


Fridays are also lower traffic for me... my assumption had been that it also was a drop-off in readers from Australia/New Zealand/Pacific rim, where their "Friday" business hours mostly happen during my site's Thursday. Also believe the same to be true for Monday having a bit more traffic, but Tuesdays are my site's busiest.

You know what, sometimes it even helps at work!
