The Best Times To Post To A Blog

Many bloggers have asked me the best and worst times to post to their blog. Amanda at BloggerBuster posted a nicely researched article on the best times - and the worst times, to post.

Compiling data from over 10,000 posts at Digg, Jake Luciani at 3rd rail created a filter of delicious, digg, reddit, and mixx posts to determine the absolute best times and worst times to publish your new articles. Apparently, the best times to post are between 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. PST.

Based upon the filter of his search, Jake suggests that the time period between Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. PST and 2:00p.m. PST Friday is the BEST time to post your blog or website articles.

Conversely, the time period of late at night, early in the morning, on the weekend, or on Monday is probably the worst time to publish your blog posts and website articles.

Although I don't think like a programmer, I can appreciate the common sense to this information. Please give some props to Jake Luciani at 3rd Rail for taking the time and putting forth the effort to answer this question for those of us who are a bit more "non-techie"!

In light of this information, I'll test Jake's theory and publish this article on Thursday at Noon PST.
