    I do not think about the time for posting my hub. I just publish my hub when I have completed that properly.

    The time itself as in what hour, it's not really something to be concerned with since you may followers/readers in different time zones. The day however, appears  to be a factor. Weekends are generally very slow for traffic and the rest of the days of the week are good, with Monday & Tuesday being the better days. This is based on my own experience and answers from other hubbers. cool

      I agree with the weekends being extremely slow. Starting Friday Morning, my traffic starts to drop and usually continues to drop until Sunday afternoon/evening.

      As far as hubs go, I will usually type the main sections of a hub and then let it sit unpublished. I'll go in with a fresh set of eyes to edit and publish a couple days later.

    I agree that I generally just post a hub when I've finished it.  However, I do think that posting early in the week gets more initial traffic.  If you plan to have a hub up for a long while, though, I'm not sure that matters.  It seems to me that it takes a while for my hubs to get search engine traffic anyway.

      I would never hold onto a complete Hub just to publish at a certain time, but I do try to time when I tweet or share the link to Facebook.  I find weekday afternoons to be the best... especially Friday when everybody's worn out at work and slacking off a bit to browse the web. wink

    I think timing can also be affected by the subject matter. Anything regarding politics, the economy or the latest techno gadget can become out of date very quickly.

      2 points: 1) Timing in the sense of immediately publishing a Hub can hurt your Hubscore in my experience. Let is sit unpublished for 2-3 days is my basic advice.
      2) I think certain subjects timing is of the essence. Same goes for posting to Social network and bookmark sites. Times with most people online, most  initial exposure to our work, and many people arent checking to see what was sent at 4am, i dont think

    After I complete writing, I let my work marionette. Few days later I rework to give it mature look. And then I wait for morning or evening to post my work. When its morning in my country, it will be evening in the United States, and my evening will be morning in the United States. (New York time). I see most of my fellow hubbers as the Americans having day job and being able to spare their time for hubpages only in the morning or evening.  Evening or morning is also appropriate time to publish when I think of my audience from my neighboring countries. One or two comment will help a hub to linger for couple of hours and European hubbers will find my hub on their feed in their morning. This has worked with me.

    no time is not an option when you are making it, however once you publish the hub score of the article that you make will increase as the time the hub has been out increases.

    -A good quality evergreen hub will never be 'out of fashion'.
    -The average hub takes 3 months to 3 years to reach full potential in traffic and earnings and,
    -Views from other hubbers, social bookmarking sites, Facebook et al are usually low quality (don't click adverts)

    Timing is only important if you are writing something for other hubbers or friends, that will never get you many search engine views or make you much money and you just want to get some comments and views on, such as 'Hub Guides' or short stories and creative pieces.

    That reply seems very logical, QuestionMaster. So do you think an evergreen hub will eventually show up in Google regardless of our tiring tries to learn about SEO and backlinking?

    1. QuestionMaster profile image84
      QuestionMasterposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Sure, it may show up. Most hubs get indexed pretty fast.

      However, if you write on a topic that either a) is saturated with other authority and aged sites, such as weight loss or acai or b) is on a topic that no one is Googling, such as 'How to paint your pet miniature turtle's shell with orange stripes', then no amount of aging is going to help you. And the same applies to backlinks. For the first example, you'd need thousands of backlinks to compete and for the second example, even if you ranked #1 in Google for "Painting turtles orange" you'll never get traffic if no one is looking for that.

    So how do we find topics that people often search but no topics that are searched so much that we can't compete. Seems difficult. For example, I've been writing about ideas to save money, so will those ever REALLY do well with all the competition out there????

      Finance is a saturated topic.

      Do you know what keyword research is? It's the key to finding a good niche.

      Some details of it and other tactics you can use for writing your hubs can be found here.
