The Very Best Time To Hit Publish

May 5, 2008

Read Write Web has a breakdown of the best times (of the day and of the week) to publish new posts.

If you’re a blogger, you might find this very useful:

Want That Post to Go Popular? Here’s the Best and Worst Times to Post It.

This actually does corroborate with my own experiences as a blogger – on both of my blogs (and on other sites I’ve written for/worked on and had access to traffic stats), Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons are the busiest times in terms of traffic, and Saturday is always the slowest day. It makes sense – people are away from their computers on weekends; and during the week they probably read blogs as a quick break from their actual work or during lunch.

If you have a blog, do these stats match up with yours?
