Have you ever wondering when the best time is to post your article?
Seriously have you thought about this, and what kind of effects this could be having on your posts, your websites, and even could be affecting your business? The time of the day could play a major role in traffic, commenting, and even in your overall strategy.
So the question is when is the best time to publish posts on your blog?
There is some actually scientific proof of what I am about to share, but strangely enough I am going to disagree with it to some degree. You can check out the scientific proof here of best time to blog.
The Best Time to Publish Articles
This is strictly written from my personal experience, my own common sense, and what I have seen other major companies do. I have planned around with this to some degree, but never got real specific or done tons of testing or data gathering on it. Though it might be worth doing a case study on down the road we shall see.
Best time of day to publish
This is a very agreeable matter and many would agree on the morning time EST. Many would say the best time to publish articles is between 9 am through 11:30 am Eastern Standard Time. This makes the most sense, because this is the most activity online through these times. Personally if you have not noticed I have sent to publish my posts for 8 am EST.
This is just a personal preference that I started and felt like to have my blog posts up and running for everyone by the time they make it online. I might be changing this and playing around with this a little more, but I will share more about this later.
Though with this time, there are some great things to think about in regarding the time you post. Always think of your target audience and for example if you’re running a blog targeting Australians who really cares about Eastern Standard Time. So you will need to use some common sense on this matter. Another quick example if your focusing on say Hollywood, movies, or entertainment it might be best to wait later in the East Coast Time to be able to hit both East and West coast.
Best day to publish
This is one where I might disagree with many other, but it’s just where I felt has worked because for me. I am here to tell you the best day of the week to post is on Tuesday. I will share some background of why and how I have come to this conclusion. And don’t you find this funny that I decided to post this on a Tuesday!
In my experience and in my personal life it seems as Monday is a full day to just get caught up. Monday I seem to have more emails from over the weekend, I seem to miss or skip more stuff that I would like to do but since I am trying to catch up Monday is just not the best day for me personally and I have seen this with others. Also, you would be surprised how many holidays worldwide fall on a Monday not that any of this is really make it or break it deal. I am just sharing why I feel Tuesday I the best day of the week to publish articles on your blog.
Some may disagree and say that it’s a Monday or Wednesday, but I completely disagree and stand by my experience of posting on Tuesday.
My Best Time to Post Rant
Even though I shared with you my personal opinion and that was literally it. I don’t like to over analysis, try to create a science, or even a one hit wonder. I guess, early one I would try to manage every little detail such as the best time, the best way, should I do this way. After many years of doing this I have concluded to this.
Great content will be found. It does not matter what day of the week, time, hour, or who you send it to or not. If the information being shared is valuable, helps someone, and really puts others into action. Let me share with you something, they share that information with their friends on Facebook, Twitter, and even tons of other social media sites!
If nothing else take this one thing away and starting doing it today!
Make Great Content!
