    Lets say I currently only post once a week what would be the very best day/time to post? I read online that Wednesdays at 10am EST is the best. Is this true or is another day/time better if I had to pick just one. Thanks a lot.

    This depends on the Niche.

    If it;s motivation, Morning time is okay and Sleeping period.
    While for adult stuffs, Night time is great, since it;s when the bad comes out. (smiles)

    I agree, this is some that would be effected by so many different variables. You best bet is to go with what @Conor is saying.

    you need to learn about the peak hours of your traffic and what content they are engaging in before you make changes to posts, etc.

    Tuesdays at 16:49pm for optimal SEO benefits. Google send out a special bot at 16:46 every tuesday and that bot only operates for about 30 minutes and all new content published during that time frame will automatically get number 1 spot ranking in google.

    Thats how ive been ranking sites for years.

    Why not just publish the blog post and then schedule the sharing of it on social media?

    This question is very niche specific as you won't post a blog entry at 7AM for a NightClub niche. It doesn't make sense. Read your target audience, do a few test posts to see when you get the highest traffic, and work a schedule around that.

    Yes. It depends on the niche. My suggestion is to choose morning time to post

    This is something you'll need to test yourself by reviewing your analytics data. If you currently don't have website traffic, then experiment with different times to post and share your content on different sites.

    As suggested by other members, it totally depends upon your niche and target audience timezone. You have to try it at your own and observe the Analytics closely to find best timings for peak visits.

    While this may be true, I tend to agree with that you need to find what works for you. What works for someone else may not always apply to you.

    Have you analyzed where your followers are located, and what they do for work? A blog about acting would have followers with a flex schedule, so posts would do well at a different time then, say, a blog about finance. See what I mean? It's so personal...
