21589Re: [webanalytics] Why everyone's traffic is down 9.7%
- Mar 4, 2009That's the point - there is great growth fluctuation month-over-month
with absolutely no daily traffic changes! January and August are the
only months that won't face month-over-month growth fluctuations.
It true that a graph of the actual monthly traffic volumes instead of
growth rates would look fairly flat since I chose a flat traffic
scenario, but I wanted to illustrate how monthly growth figures
(something many companies use) can be misleading.
