charts may look cooler, but Cartesian graphs (Bar charts, Column charts) display multiple data sets much quicker and easier. Definition: A Cartesian graph is created by drawing a horizontal x-axis, and a vertical number y-axis.

your subject and its data. (In this case we talk about "traffic.") Keep your design consistent with your subject.
