Good? Bad? Just about the same? Or dead end?

My traffic is just about the same as any other day. I have not seen any (big) increases or decreases in Christmas traffic today. How about you?

Another 60% down figure, which given my spend of my sites is abotu a break even point. Traffic and clicks have been in free fall since Thursay which was almost a record high.

But it will all bounce back. I took the opportunity to to scan back on the figures for my system which has always cost several hundred $ a month to run, and on one day almost 2 months after I started this sort of spend I made $2.28! As xmas day was more than 10 times that, I am not complaining.

They're business accounts, some members here have many more.

Our impressions were around 30% of normal but conversion was remarkably high.

I guess that if you search for something on a big public holiday you must be really interested in it. I'd guess that most people (in the UK, and I know not everyone celebrates Christmas) will not go near their PC as they will be too busy with family and friends.
