  2. Thanks to Josh’s article, I can now sleep well knowing it’s only a seasonal holiday dip in website traffic…

    Also this article…

    High Season

    January: All those new year’s resolution folks.

    March-May: People looking for tax help.

    September – November: Catching up with all the things people should have done while on summer vacation.

    Low Season

    June – August: Summer vacation.

    December: Winter vacation, but gearing up towards the new year again.

    Then it’s good to know that the seasonal pattern is different for different industry…
