    Are Monday Mornings A Bad Time To Publish A New Hub?

    I have a new Hub about the self-driving Google car all ready to publish.  However, I don't think it will get as much attention if I publish it on a Monday morning, with everyone catching up on other things from the weekend.  Have Hubbers found Monday mornings to be a bad time to publish new Hubs?

    I have learned the highest attention from hubbers and most likely, other searches for things to read is on a Sunday. If you check your statistics under each hub, you will see which day has the most traffic. The only problem is if it is something of a "timely event" then you would want to publish it as soon as possible and just make bigger efforts to get it out to every social media link with engaging conversations so others will talk about it too.

      Thanks for your input.  Sunday is an interesting day.  Less Internet traffic because people are out doing things, but those on the Internet may be more likely to see something you just published since there isn't as much competition.

    Since the majority of your readers will be outside of HubPages anyway, all you need to do is get your article out on the web and let the search engines pick it up. No day of the week is bad to publish. It's only bad if you don't publish at all.

      I hear what you are saying.  I am thinking about the 9 to 5 crowd that are my friends on Facebook and also some of the Hubbers who have regular jobs.  They may have a lot to catch up on during Monday mornings.

    As far as days of the week go.  I don't know which day of the week is the best, but I like to publish at around 3:00 PM Pacific time as that is when the people on the east coast are off of work and are coming home to relax and maybe do a little reading and social networking.  Shortly after this time the rest of the United States will be getting off of work and coming home to check their HubPages, Facebooks, and Twitters also.

    I think it depends on subject and audience. If you design the hub to be found in Google searches, then the moment of publication doesn't matter. The goal is to have it found and read from this moment forward.

    If you have a target audience of HubPages followers or Social Networking followers (or blog stream followers), then pay attention to your readers. Is this something read during business hours. Then 10am (target market time) Tue, Wed. or Thu., is probably best? Is it personal - then weekends or evenings.

    And keep international time zones in mind - I'm in the US, but  get readers in India, Australia, and elsewhere, too.
