Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

Traffic Patterns

I thought it would be interesting to look at the traffic for this site to see if there's a pattern. Sure enough, over the past year, the number of readers and visitors has remained very consistent. Here is the typical order, from highest to lowest.

Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Monday
Friday
Sunday
Saturday

What's funny is that this mirrors the pattern on our websites. I wouldn't be surprised if it's common on the web as a whole.

The takeaway? First, a very high percentage of web traffic is during working hours during the work week. Second, if I have a ground-breaking announcement to make, Saturday is probably not the best day.
