    Hi,

    I have a blog which makes around $10 per day with adsense. Blogs gets traffic through Google and during weekends earnings are down by 95%.

    Do you face similar problems or i need to do something so that blog earns money during weekends(saturday and sunday)

    EDIT: 100% Traffic is from Google.

    Yep - my Adsense income drops significantly on weekends as well. Not anything to worry about - if you think about it most people aren't browsing the Internet as much on weekends. (People do that shit at work lol)

    My traffic and especially income goes way down just before Xmas because people are spending their money on Xmas shit and not surfing so much. However just after Xmas is generally good as people get online with their new Xmas computers, surf during their holidays and start spending their Xmas money.

    Xmas eve/day and New Years are always good for the porn signups, dating and cams for some reason - lots of lonely / horny people.

    It sounds like you're working in a niche where people surf at work rather than at home during weekends.

    I've found that it depends on your demographic. If people are searching for your keywords from work, your traffic will drop on the weekends. If you have a fun site, traffic/income will usually rise in the evenings and weekends.

    I disabled interest based ads and started to get few clicks. My earning from adsense was dropped 98%. Traffic was from : facebook, google, bing, yandex and few forums. Surely this is mix of panda and interest based ads issue, i just got few clicks ever since i disabled it.

    Yes! People seem to turn off on weekends, but on weekdays when it is work time, they are all over the internet like it is going out of fashion.

    You have to create special articles that you post on Sat and Sun and call it
    "Suprise Sunday" or "Super Saturday" that way your visitor will visit your site
    on the weekend because of the Gooddies that they will only be able to get on
    those days.
