During the summer months, people are away from work and school where many
have their Internet connections (or /fast/ connections). Moreover, people
in the northern hemisphere tend to spend more time outside.
The bottom line is that certain sites will see a surge (usually
non-technical sites) whereas other must wait until September. I don't know
about total queries volume in the search engines, but the popularity of
each SERP definitely changes.
Borek, if your site is technical, don't reach any conclusions before the end
of September. Chemistry is the last thing on people's minds when it's nice
and sunny outside.
