Friends, how is your websites doing during the Christmas season? Are you getting more traffic and sales? Or maybe less?

As for me, I am facing some 20% traffic drop these days.

    Set up a Facebook fan page. Poke those in your niche to be a fan or friend. Do not spam. Treat them like you would like to be treated. Thats a good way to get traffic.

    Is the content on your website Trend based. I have seen this myself, sometime when there is some trends happening, traffic level shoots up then it comes down. Just cross check once with Google Trends, it might help you to better optimize your blog.

      Organic traffic fluctuations are normal. This includes seasonal spikes. One way to compensate for these changes or low spots is to be proactive.

      This includes:
      1) buying traffic
      2) adding relevant content more frequently
      3) increase your social presence

      If your site has true value, visitors will come.

      How do you get traffic from digg.com exactly? Do you only posts links or do some more?

        Go to digg.com and click on Submit a Link, if you are not logged in, they will require you to Sign in with your Facebook or Twitter account. When you must have completed that process, copy any link from you site to the URL Box provided on Digg.com. That's all my friend. I just did same too.

    I think people are spending more time with their families, going to the shopping malls and finally getting round to visiting their Granny and in laws instead of checking out websites.....lol

    I think this traffic downward trend will continue for another week or two.

    I guess it depends on what kind of products or services you offer. If your goods are trendy in Christmas time, you can gain lots of website visitors. Otherwise, your traffic will decrease, but don't worry, it is only for the holidays period.

    Facebook can be used to attracting traffic and making sales. More likes more traffic more sales.

    If you promote many physical goods at FB, you need at least 10,000 likes (fans) for making enough amount of profit.

    I agree with most comments, use social media and maybe add some paid traffic into the mix. If you find the right keyword mix at a lower bid cost you should do well. Facebook is a great resource as well as others mentioned.

    All the best in getting more traffic.

    maybe a reason for dropping a percentage of sales because it's holiday and it's time for FAMIL MONENTS/ bonding

    hoping your sales recovers.

    The holiday season changes the amount of time that people are online. I think that is good as long as they are spending the time with friends and family and enjoying themselves. Everybody needs a break and why not take a break at Christmas.

    That's pretty normal with the past holidays that came. I also experience the same to my sites but luckily it comes back up during the spring/summer times. It's just like that you don't have to worry not unless its going down consistently but you could try or add other strategies such as social media marketing or PPC it helps to also venture to other methods. Can be a risk but who knows the returns will be bigger than expected.
