    My site is getting weekly spikes in traffic. Every Monday without fail it gets the most traffic then a trough for the rest of the week.

    Any ideas why this is happening? The vast majority of my traffic is thru organic Google search traffic.

    Here's a snapshot of my unique visitors Google Analytics graph. Each spike is a Monday:

    Cheers

    I'm assuming it has something to do with the keywords you're targeting...

    The keywords are not cyclical, seasonal or liable to being affected on a weekly basis.

    It could just be to do with the general trends of the internet, people are on the internet more on weekends.

    Im thinking it may be something to do with different Google data center - ie for "Monday's Data Center" my keywords rank higher than they do for the remainder of the week.

    this is pure guesswork though - I dont really know much about the inner workings of Google's data centers. Anyone got a better understanding of these data centers and how they affect keywords?
