Wednesday breaks my heart ( ), the number one provider of real-time intelligence web analytics, today reported that Wednesday is the most popular day of the week in the world to surf the web. In April 2005 Monday was the most popular day of the week to surf the internet. The second most popular day to surf the web is Monday now. The study shows that surfers on the web spent more time on the internet during the workweek than at home on the weekends. Internet use worldwide on any weekday is higher than Saturday and Sunday which are the least popular days of the week to surf the internet.

I’ve noticed the dip in visitors at the weekend, but I can’t say that I’ve seen the Wednesday effect.

The breakdown of surfer traffic by day of the week worldwide:

1. Wednesday 16.87%
2. Monday 15.78%
3. Tuesday 15.28%
4. Thursday 14.92%
5. Friday 14.08%
6. Sunday 11.85%
7. Saturday 11.22%
