Posted on Friday, August 31, 2012 by "T".
According to the latest report by an online poker tracking site, the poker traffic has dropped by 0.6 percent in the past 7 days.

Wow that shows how people get sucked in to promos.

Cos that's a monster drop in activity.

Makes me wonder if it's not something else that's causing it. It's obviously nothing economic.

Perhaps some event? Elections in america? Weather? All the caribbean and Southern American states are getting ass raped by Isaac.

well there is nothing special to see people flooding into the sites when major promotions are going on- same thing happens when you have a sale in your local supermarket- why the hell to miss the chance of getting some green Dollar so it is a normal thing to see numbers decreasing after the promotion ended...

Now i started playing full ring no limit holdem on 888 poker and frankly there is no change in the traffic if you ask me...

I also don't remember something important happend in the last week in order to create such a traffic downswing, pretty weird...

Maybe a good idea to puit some pressure on PS to give better and more promo's

If this would continue some weeks there management should take actions to encounter this drop.

Extra depositing bonusses, extra freerolls, pormotions like the 85th billion hand , etc

Maybe an idea to pressurize PS as a lot of players switch to another site for a while ....

Why they divide PokerStars into some parts? It's one site!

I also have to agree with some of the members that posted above, really the only way to boost up traffic again is some good promotions...

I still do believe that stars as company, not site will get a nice boost once FTP will be back online.

Normal flow of traffic because of this promotion.
For sure people are looking for good promotions to get some extra value (like I do myself).
I hope when FTP will be back they will also have some nice promotions up and running.

The last days of August are becoming the worst ones for online poker companies. Vacations are above everything else, even above the chance of running for some big prizes. They always have great campaigns and great games, but it’s useless to book them to the late August, people will just shut the computer down and jump for a dive at the ocean.
