It doesn't matter. When I publish a hub I'm thinking it is something that will get steady search engine traffic for a number of years, and if it is of that quality, it couldn't possibly matter what day of the week it was published on.
Though I think the day you post a hub will only affect its initial page views and is negligible in the long run, I place my bet on Saturday. Given most of us don't have work the day after, more hubbers are expected to be online during Saturday night.
I would say any time during the week is great. I typically see a DROP in my traffic during Saturday and Sunday.
If you're only interested in having Hubbers read your hub then aim for it to be posted so it's available for viewing on a weekday (Monday- Thursday is my experience as Friday traffic drops).
If you're playing the long term viewings game the day of the week you post is pretty irrelevant as you're looking for search engines to pick up your content and that can be a waiting game so you need to have patience.
Generally in the Western world internet traffic tends to be higher over the week as people tend to go about their lives of a weekend it seems.
I remember reading a similar question when I first joined and i was surprised to see that Friday evenings were a good time. Seems counter intuitive to me but I do find I get lots of weekend views when I do.

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

Do you publish in the morning, afternoon, evening, night or anytime ? Does publishing a hub at a specific time have any effect on the traffic or no difference at all?

I have made a similar post a while ago, but I still haven't been able to find a solution to this problem. All of my hubs are currently featured and always have been. I have 6 poems, 3 short stories, and 29 non-fiction articles. Many of them are on topics I wouldn't consider...

I am looking for some feedback on a particular hub. I write about all sorts, including the damage we are doing to ourselves by over packaging and spending all our money on pieces of plastic crap from China. But I have consistently failed to drive much traffic to these pages. I have, on the other...

What is the best way to get traffic on hubpages? Is it by the quality of your hubs or the frequency of your communication in the community? I've seen different articles that encouraged people to get noticed by being more social, claiming that that would increase interest and traffic; and then on...

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?
