Traffic down because of Halloween?  Reply with quote  

I saw drop in traffic on Oct. 31. Is this because of Halloween or there is some other reason?

(I need to monitor traffic carefully for the next couple of days. Yahoo apparently updated its SERP either today or yesterday also.)

Holidays  Reply with quote  

OHC,

there's a general drop off before most holidays. Just check your stats for Friday afternoons. I guess its all in the mix. Some other activities must pick up.

I've noticed a drop in traffic a few days ago my alexa ranking plummeted, it has started creeping back up there again now I will have to check analytics to see what has gone on!

I'm afraid that I got hit by the latest Yahoo SERP update. Traffic was down the day after, on Nov. 1st also. Damn ... I need to look into this and find out what caused this ...

Of course... people shopping, with families, offices selebrate, prepearing etc... I guess even author of this post sped less time in front of computer. Also, people visit mostly gift store websites, local events sites etc...

Yeah, I notice the same trend. I dont like to see the drop but I understand why. I am not on the internet either when holidays get near, eventhough I own an online company.

It appears that traffic loss was not due to Halloween, but it was due to Yahoo's SERP update in my case. *** sigh ***

There has been a diverse traffic range during the Halloween, some have seen less traffic and some others, like online shopping centers and holiday items sellers have seen a boost.

I think the traffic on my website is changed slightly on halloween. But I guess this is because peoples are busy that in enjoying, shopping, and meeting with friends. There is nothing to worry about.
