How was the default rate on flycast over the weekend?
Burst was running 40-90% defaults..ouch.

It was quite a shock to check this morning. 30-40% off in traffic over the weekend.

A couple of month's ago, we had a good thread over a SEF talking about traffic patterns --the short of it was that EVERY webmaster other than those for kids reported that Friday and Saturday was their weekly low. Monday and Tuesday seemed to be everyone's high point.

Over the past 5 years, I've seen most of the other patterns/trends shift or flatten out, but not this one re weekends and Mondays.

And Summer holidays seem to hit traffic worse than any other season.

In my experience [UK] Monday is almost always the busiest day.

This has always surprised me until a friend [who has never seen a computer, never mind the Internet] said:

"simple innit, they go down shops over the weekend, see what they like and then ave a look at the net from work, see if they can find it cheaper, you know what I mean guv"

This seems to make sense and is the first recorded case of a "cockney" saying something worthwhile..

>Monday is almost always the busiest day
Surprisingly, I got the same from some Eastern sites, Singapore was one.

Net access at work still seems to be the reason for Monday being the big day.

You know I do the mp3 thing so my weekends are just opposite with everyone else. Our biggest days of the week over there are Saturday and Sunday. That runs counter to everthing of course. Always depends on the audience.

We have an Asian business management ezine (nothing highly commercial - mainly business management tips, columnists, research articles news commentary etc). Obviously the audience is managers and management academics and researchers.

Sat and Sun is way down. Rest of the days of the week are fairly even at about double weekend rate. We used to have a Monday effect (up) and Friday effect (down) but not any more. We dont sell retail products hence we dont have any Monday effect as described above.
