I know this has been mentioned in various threads since mayday updates. It also relates to several other active topics, but I think it warrants its own thread.
In the past my site had steady sales throughout the week - with the exception of weekends. However, lately I've noticed that I get no orders for days at a time, and then bang 8 orders in the space of a few hours. This has been happening for weeks now... and it’s always the same day of the week.
It's almost like Google are positioning my website in the search results based on time variables, and the class of searcher (people who are more likely to buy something against people who are just looking). The weird thing is the ‘search terms’ do not seam to be a factor in quality of traffic. Personalized search may be a factor.
Has anyone else noticed this more recently? and more importantly, does anyone have any advice on how to get better quality traffic more frequently?
