    I get like, 1.5k - 2.3k visitors everyday, on this website, surprisingly, it got 6k visitors other day, and obviously, my income with this website was 2x - 3x higher, i thought that finally it's earning as per the expectation, but next day, again, it's 1.5k - 2.3k..

    What is wrong?

    Thanks

    Could be numerous things. Traffic throttling, trending. What kind of site is it? Is there a lot of content, updated daily? News type site?

    This is why you use analytics. If you did you could find the source of traffic.

    Analytics combined with daily SERP data would tell you exactly what's going on. I can be more specific if you like.

    it might depend on the hotness or the uniqueness of the news. Some might find it interesting or some may dont. Or maybe your title have some contribution. Is your title attention grabber?

    I will never understand why people make decisions from day to day data.

    You have to look at your average views for the entire month, and take an average. Then trend those averages.

    You will lose your mind picking apart each day.

    I agree with you in the big picture sense but there are very good reasons to analyze data spikes.

    For example, a while ago I was running a bunch of PPV campaigns on TrafficVance. One of those was doing a nominal $5/day in profit and converting at around 6%. I had already optimized this campaign and it really only had one target - the website for a popular afternoon talk show.

    One day all of my numbers went through the roof - everything went up by a factor of 10. It turns out that on that day the host had a very popular person on and they did a giveaway after the show but you had to register on the website. Traffic exploded for that day.

    After I looked up the schedule for that show on their website you could fairly accurately tell which days were going to be really popular. Hour-by-hour analysis also showed that traffic spiked right after the show every day. All of this helped enormously when setting up bidding, etc, for the ads for that particular campaign.

    Now, that's still not a lot of money in my case - but there are plenty of cases where that could be true.

    That's great and all... but knowing that doesn't really give you a plan to maximize it. In other words, what do you with the analyzation? You can't make a talk show host get a super celeb and give away stuff when you want them to. There's cause and effect here... getting one day spikes would usually be something unpredictable, for which you can't make plans.
