    My website sells Electronic Products and has good traffic. But recently, the traffic would come down during Saturday & Sunday. On Monday, the traffic comes back again and would also come down on Saturday. This phenomenon has been for weeks, I do not know how this strange thing happens. Does anyone know the reasons? Look forward to your reply!
    Thankyou:)

    What demographic is your website targeting? There can be multiple reasons behind dips in traffic during the weekend. Especially during the summer time many people spend their time outside on the weekends instead of inside on the internet buying things.

    Are you selling consumer or industrial products? The pattern as GoldenGlovez suggested indicates consumer but you can never assume. If consumer the weekend traffic will increase through August with back to school shopping.

    Our website are selling consumer products such as phones, cameras, car accessories, etc. Usually we get our traffic message through the using of Google Analytic tools. The data shows that our site traffic would come down during Saturday & Sunday but come back again on Monday. Very strange!

    If your site gets US traffic then these spikes are all too common. In the summer time, people are not home during the weekends. They have parties, offline shopping, events, vacations, etc.. When they get home Sunday night, it's back to business. This trend will reverse itself once school starts an the weather in the US gets colder, trust me.

    I can back this, traffic dips during weekends and speeds right back around Monday. It's Summer.

    lol, it's happening in some keywords of course (happening to me too). Some people simply don't use their computer as much as usual on weekends.

    Hi, like they said it's quite normal for this to happen in the summer, people spend so many time indoors on their computers during the week that in the weekends especially with good weather they just want to relax in outdoor activities.

    Look at the silver lining.

    At least you know the tendencies of your site visitors. You can take advantage of that.
