[Chart description: Daily traffic stats for March, with a vertical bar for each day, representing pages served per minute. The weekends are marked in red. Sundays are the busiest days, reaching close to 6,000 pages per minute on average. Thursdays and Fridays are the slowest, sloping down to 5,000 ppm. The overall effect for the whole month is a zig-zig shape with little valleys between the weekends.]
Tumblr user destinationtoast asked about traffic stats per week day, so we had a look at the most recent data. (Yesterday’s numbers were a bit borked, so let’s just work with a thirty-day March here.)
We are not keeping track of enough daily stats to calculate averages over time, but even if this chart is not representative of all months, we know that Sundays are our busiest days without fail. Last Sunday (March 30), we served 8.8 million pages overall.
