    I got 3 sites with adsense and all 3 doubled the ammount of traffic in day 2 of 2011 and is stable since then.
    Do you think this is sasonary? I mean "new year new life" people google more because they want to fix their problems?
    I find this strange because I can't notice if they moved all 3 to better positions in the serps or if it's because of the season, never hapenned to me, they usually go up but in dif. times not all at the same time.

    Would love to know why did they doubled the number of visitis, any of you experienced the same?

    its normal that the traffic descreases in december.
    of course then it goes up again in the new year.

    May be the keyword you are targeting is seasonal. For example, search terms related to sundresses would touch peak during summer season.

    Yes I have noticed that. But in September October and November all the 3 gathered more less 600 UV day in December they dropped to 400 UV day average. Now in January they have 1200 day average.
    When I say they doubled is regarding the numbers I saw in the last 4 5 months.

    Don't think they are seasonal. Weight loss and Skincare. Perhaps, like I said, could it be the spirit of "new year new life?" Are you experiencing any increase or your traffic is the same?

    Beside the sudden increase what makes me more confuse is that all the 3 doubled the traffic, and not only one or even 2.
    Don't know if it's related for having the same adsense code in the 3 and visits are converting good, don't know.

    I think that it is because many people tries to make changes in their lifes in New Year period. I saw something similar in my niche, the law of attraction.

    Yes I have this too, but I am pretty sure its just seasonal. Building up to Christmas people search for different niches then usual. Then as soon as they are back to work and school they hit their own interests with a vengeance. My stats look like this every year.

    it's because of tablet computers like ipad and so, many people got them as presents for Christmas and are spending more time online playing with their new toys
