If you are interested in a few high spikes in traffic before the year ends — do it by writing articles which are specifically targeted to a particular holiday audience. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Hannukah. New Year’s.
Everyone in your niche is going to celebrate one of those holidays, or may even hate all of those holidays, whatever! Just find a way to connect your topic, or your next promotion, to the holiday season and you are sure to see a few more visits come your way!
