I'm interested in people's experiences of publishing their posts related to the times of day and days of the week they publish them. Obviously we are all in different time zones, I understand that but I have noticed that I get more comments and replies if I publish during the week than at weekend. I also get more comments if I publish after America wakes up, which for us in the UK is generally after 2pm? Am just interested if anyone has any other experiences with this.

I agree posting when the US is up is good being in the UK myself.

I usually go for around 9pm when folks in the UK are usually winding down and the US is around lunchtime to mid afternoon.

I'm not strict its just it seems to be when I have finished writing.

Hi Gail

I tend to post mine on Monday because my newsletter goes out on Monday but I also believe that if you stick to the same time and day each week the Google bot will also get used to this and come around to crawl your site on the days you always post ;)

I think that the important thing here is to publish your post, no matter what time, with the right keywords and by being ranked it will get noticed. But if I had to pick a particular time, Like Marion, I would also go with Sundays. :)

OK Thanks.

Sundays are good because people are not exactly looking forward to the Monday work grind and are looking for alternatives.

But the best time to publish is when the post is ready.

Thanks Marion. I've found that Saturdays are really slow for me - maybe everyone else has a social life!! hee hee.
