    traffic question ?

    Here my story :
    every monday my traffic increase alot (30% - 80%), then drop 5% daily till sunday, monday it up again ..... (march stat only, just start the site recently)

    Traffic stat (march):
    First week 297uv (mon), 450uv (fri), 480(sat), 570 (sun)
    second week 920uv(mon), 848(fri), 785(sat), 919(sun)
    third week 1520uv (mon), 1259 uv(fri), 1010(sat), 1250uv (sun)
    Fourth week 1999 uv (mon), 1841 uv (tue), 1676uv (wed), 1552 (thursday), 1446 (friday), 1114 (sat), 1387 (sun) .... keep dropping
    Traffic Source
    90% from Google SE,
    0.5% from Yahoo.
    8% direct.
    1.5 referring site
    Bounce rate 45%
    pageview 3.8

    My question is does google do some major twist on Monday ? or i did something wrong there ?
    Link build rare
    Social bookmark (less then 20)
    update. (daily)

    I'm guessing you're in Malaysia? Your Monday, is the U.S's Sunday which means that traffic goes down over the weekend.

    What is your site niche? I have seen few sites on sports and wallpapers whose traffic goes up on weekends.

    I don't think so there is a Google update on Sunday..etc. a fixed day...
    If Google do this on Sunday, we all must have seen a loss or increase in the traffic on Sunday.. I can't see any changes on Monday.

    There must be any of the following theory:
    1.) You must be working hard and getting backlinks or adding content..etc.
    2.) Depend upon your site niche.
    3.) Weekend Effect. Some sites traffic goes down on weekend, some sites traffic goes up..

    May be on that day your site gets more traffic from other countries such as USA..etc. Did you ever checked from where your site traffic coming from on Monday?

    yah agree work very hard on content but no link building (i think that main reason with unstable traffic).
    very sure is local traffic cause i target long tail keyword (only local will understand )

    No worry, i just wonder why monday is higher then keep dropping till next monday , should be my site layout or poor link building
    thanks

    It's more likely that Google would make adjustments Sunday night when most people are sleeping. I few times I've noticed some funny results on a Sunday night. But I don't think that it explains the traffic spike on Mondays followed by a gradual decline and another re-spike.

    When are you adding new content? Perhaps people are bookmarking your articles. So, due to the bookmarking and Google real time search , there is a spike in the traffic that gradually fades out. Until the cycle is repeated.

    hmmm... I have never seen those changes on Monday morning. Here it will be Monday morning if there is sunday night.. I think Google update is not on one same day of the week..

    Could it not simply be that all those people who didn't search over the weekend finally get around to searching on Monday when they are back in town, at work, or otherwise freed up with access to search the web?

    Look at your analytics to see where the traffic increase/decrease is from.
