I have been blogging for the past 4 months now and I have realized something different depending on the time that I post a new blog article, and I just realized this the other day.
I didn’t know that the time of posting a new blog article how it really affects my blogging community. I always though that once you post a new blog then your blog subscribers and visitors will eventually see the post and realize that there was a new article out. Well I guess it’s not like that.
When I did my very first guest post at Rob Rammuny’s blog, The Importance Of Being A Persistent Blogger, I realized that he published my article at about 12:00 am in the morning. I was thinking to myself, was he drunk or something. But my guest article got great response from his visitors.
Times That I Publish
Mornings (About 8:00am – 9:00am) – This was my regular time of posting. This seems like a great way to start the day with a fresh new blog post. When I post a new article at this time of day made my blog traffic go up, getting comments and great response from my blog community.
Afternoon (About 12:00pm – 2:00pm) – I think I have posted blog articles about 2 or 3 times and those blog articles didn’t do as well as I posted in the mornings. So I decided to stop posting articles in the afternoon.
Midnight (Exactly 12 midnight) – This is the one that works best for me. When I post articles in the midnight I realize that I get more views on those articles posted at midnight. This is because my rss feed publishes my articles every morning at 8:00am. So I try to write my articles ahead of time and then schedule it to publish at midnight.
What time of the day do you publish your blog posts?
