I am one of many bloggers that has worked towards running two or more websites. My main website, of course, is Ask Will Online with the now appearing willGreeny website just starting up this month. I also created another website called Review Cosmos that made me realise that traffic for different blogs varies. I thought that every website/blog’s traffic follows the same pattern or trend where the traffic is highest during the week and fades off a bit during the weekend. However, how wrong could I be when I had a look at Review Cosmos’s traffic…
Firstly, I’ll share with you the traffic from Ask Will Online for the month of March 2012. You can also see all of Ask Will Online’s stats here.
The peaks of Ask Will Online are during the week day with the troths (lowest days with traffic) are days on the weekend. I thought my traffic’s pattern is like this because many articles on Ask Will Online are to do with education and school such as Internal and External Sources of Finance
. Students are not at school on weekends therefore won’t search for educational articles as much. This was my theory and I still stand to it.
However, after looking at Review Cosmos’s traffic, it appears the traffic trends are different for every website/blog. Have a look at Review Cosmos’s traffic from Blogger stats
As you can see, the traffic for Review Cosmos is a lot more consistent and constant with the traffic almost without any peaks or troths. The only thing that is obvious is that the traffic is slowly increasing day by day. I believe it is, again, down to the articles on the website. The most read articles are around the topic of ‘Fifa 12 Video Game’. People that play Fifa play it every day of the week. Therefore, the traffic will never drop and have any troths like Ask Will Online has.
I still believe that the majority of websites follow Ask Will Online’s traffic pattern due the typical behaviour of people at the weekend. People are just generally less online and doing more stuff during the weekend as they are not working.
What is your traffic pattern for your blog or website? How does it compare to Ask Will Online’s traffic pattern and Review Cosmos’? Please feel free to comment below.
