I recently began co-authoring a site about the television show The Shark Tank. While it is new and I can’t discern traffic trends yet, I imagine traffic will drop when the season ends.
My Hot Dog Stories site slows down a bit in the winter too. That’s partly due to the fact that I don’t visit as many hot dog places in the winter (many are closed) and partly due to hot dogs being somewhat seasonal too.
I don’t have a problem with the downturns in traffic during the seasonal lulls as I have plenty to keep me busy with other seasonal niches. The ebb and flow of the workload throughout the year develops its own rhythm.
Adding a seasonal niche site can help your bottom line too if it is properly monetized. I am going to develop some other seasonal niche sites around the Christmas season- I am already planning them in February. If you are into building niche sites, consider a seasonal niche to add to your portfolio.
