Do you get more or less clicks on the weekends compared to weekdays? More people are home during the day but most of them are probably out with friends or family at night.

On saturday, sleep.

I'll go out tomorrow.

I don't know why this site runs with the UTC time.
I would be more comforable with the US PST time or whatever US time.
I'm on central time, btw, it is very early to go to bed.

Depends. I definitely get less traffic on the weekend. But sometimes the CTR is higher and I end up making as much on a weekend day as I do on a weekday.

On average, I'd say weekdays are still better but the gap is not as large as it used to be.

Saturdays suck for me, too. I hate them. usually earnings are 25% down. Sundays are so so, but better than Saturdays.

I've got an educational site. Fridays and Saturdays are terrible. Not to mention vacations!

For me Saturdays & Sunday are normally down by 20% then weekdays.
even Friday seems to be slow after evening hours.

But on 1 or 2 occasion in last 52 weeks the trend was reverse.

Saturdays usually are poor for me, Sundays are OK. Weekends and public holidays in the US are when things are quiet for me.

Spot on!

It runs Monday Highest, decreases each day thereafter to Saturday lowest, Sunday is equivalent to Tuesday.

A slightly slanted bell curve each and every week :).......except for public holidays which screw things up!

Saturdays worst, Sundays slightly down, would not care to place an order for the rest of the week, except maybe Fridays are on the poor side.

With a fair dinkum of business visitors its no surprise that Sat & Sun are about half the income of weekdays. However, Sun is a bit better than Sat because it includes the Australian Monday business hours. Friday is usually slightly less than other weekdays because there are no Australian business hours (it includes Aussies' Sat daytime).

So, my 'weekend' starts mid Friday and finishes mid Sunday Google-time.

Sundays are equivalent to Tuesday, but they start slow and end very good.

Traffic fades starting Friday evening, bottoms out on Saturday and starts to rise again on Sunday evening. Mondays and Thursdays are the best.

Earnings however do not fade as much as traffic does. Meaning my eCPM is very good on the weekends.

That and the rest of your post is exactly my situation. And I guess it is the same situation for websites on US Time and related somehow to business.
The "weekend" starts on friday afternoon and ends on sunday afternoon.

Fridays and Saturdays usually aren't too bad, as I think that's when visitors come looking for ideas.

Sundays are terrible, the visitors are probably all out doing whatever it was took their fancy on Friday and Saturday.

Mondays and Tuesdays are usually good - probably showing their friends and colleagues what they did.

Do people only do any actual work on Wednesdays and Thursdays? These are my worst days, with least number of clicks :(

Monday: Usually great.
Tuesday: OK
Wednesday: Worst day of the week.. always!
Thursday: OK again
Friday: Better than Tuesdays and Thursdays, not so good as Mondays though
Saturday: Almost the same as Monday
Sunday: My best day of the week.

This is a conlusion from my site, which makes me a whopping $0.95 every day! Avg base.
So when $0.95 is average, try picturing how the Wednesdays look like on my adsense stat ;)

Weekends are usually less than weekdays, occasionally get a spike and sunday is better than saturday - slightly.

Monday isn't my best day althought it is usually one of the best weekdays. My peak day is Tuesday... funny I used to always hate tuesdays, even as a youngster!
