    Coming up on summer, nicer weather means people are outdoors more. "Summer slowdown" isn't a myth in some niches ;)

    I have got sites that double visitors in weekends and some sites that get all their visitors at workdays.
    It depends only on the visitors you are targeting.

    no, its not only you...people on the weekends usually like to spend time with family and relax and that means not doing google searches...

    It depends on the season and where you are living in. In my country, traffic is moderate on weekends during the summer. if there are classes, traffic is a lot higher on the weekends.

    Yeah,for the most part,that's normal but,it depends on the demographics,too.The sites I have that target senior citizens tend to do good on weekends,especially on Sundays.

    Same here. I tried to figure out what happens. In my niche, people are browsing from their office. That explains why.

    Every niche is different.

    You shouldn't see your income as per day, but more like month after month... and if you want to get a per day, get an average. Obviously every niche also has seasonal.

    I generally find the same, but as others have said - depends on the niche.

    if you targeting seasonal niches - yea;
    but overall trends for all niches are pretty much the same : more sun+more holidays+more outside activities = less internet less traffic ;]
