    What is the best time of the day to publish a hub?

    Is there a best time to publish a hub and get many initial views? (from potential hubhoppers) I noticed, for some hubs, hubhoppers most likely leave a review than later readers.
    Do you know if there is a Hubhopping peak time?

    Since people world wide visit HP there is no specific time as one perfect time here is different by 12 hours in australia (from Oregon)...

    For me, the best time to publish a hub is after midnight. After the second draft is out there, I usually make some changes. If I published during a peak viewing time, I'd be embarrassed for others to see the typos and other bloopers that survived the first edit.

    My impression is that a plurality of Hubbers are from North America. If I lived in the UK or Australia, my optimal timing would be different.

    recently I read a Hub about it, and the answer was morning, she said her hub got more comments and  the traffic was higher, but here in HubPages you can found people from different time zones and different schedules, so I think as "Jerrico Usher" no specific time. When you publish a great one, the time it won't matter, you are going to have a readers 24/7.

    I agree that morning seems to work well for those of us in the US.  Traffic seems to pick up mid-morning to early afternoon. At least from my limited observation.

    I think it does make a difference. I publish hubs late evening to midnight here in India and the time difference to US time in california is 13.5 hours in winter. Though hub readers are from all over the world, I think the majority are from the US so this time helps me get more readers find my hub earlier.

    As Marcy said, time your hub publication to be early working hours in the US.

    Very interesting question. When I first read your question I thought that the answer would be that it didn't matter as hubpages are viewable all around the world, but reading the answers given here made me rethink my position on this.

    Now I will pay more attention to the timing of my publishing and see if I notice any difference in traffic.Thanks.

    I tell you, I would like to be able to show all  my expertise on that... I must write my first Hub in the first place, probably others may follow this first one  and finally I will know  when is the peak time. I wish you a bright inspiration and great writings!

    I believe the time of day a hub is published does make a difference, or at least that's what I tell myself. So far I've only published one. I published it around 1am Central time and it has since been doomed to total hub-scurity. So, either publishing it late at night was a mistake, or my first hub just isn't generating much interest.

    I'll soon be publishing my second and plan on doing so in the 8am to 10am range to see if that helps.

    I write around 11:00-5:00 I do some research in the evening, and read hubs during the day

    The time your feeling that you do not have anything to do, just publish hub
