As it is Memorial Day weekend, my website traffic has decreased (starting yesterday). I've recorded the traffic for every major holiday for four years now and the same thing happens: traffic decreases. It isn't concerning to me since I've recorded it in the past and know that it is expected. I record it in Evernote by the year and holiday vs. average stats for the days prior.
I'm curious if other people see traffic decreasing on holidays? Is it a global event (global meaning for every site that targets the demographic of the holiday)? I wonder if the big sites like Google and Facebook see traffic fluctuations during holiday periods when people are off work, outside and doing other things besides being online?
