    Hi all.
    What would be the best time during the day to post videos for mature (older than 25 years old) American audience, if I want to get more views?
    I live in California and I usually post early in the morning since I have a full time job (Youtube channel is my hobby).
    But I am wondering since vast majority of my subscribers are adult Americans, maybe I should post videos in the middle of the day or evening?
    (Around 90% of my subscribers are older than 25 years old)
    Most people subscribe to multiple channels and I don't want my video pushed all the way back to the bottom of the page when my subscribers click 'my subscription' button to see videos from the subscribed channels (in that case, most likely they would just watch something that show up in the first page).
    So I would love to know what time during the day has the highest number of viewers.
    Any input would be great appreciated.
    Thanks!

    If your videos are about hangovers, then in the morning. If the video is about making money, then during business hours. If the videos are porn, then at night.

    Thank you for the answer!
    Mine does not fall into your category though.
    Mine is mostly talking on books, movies and music.
    So I guess maybe evening is the best?

    That depends... Depends which country you are targeting.
    But since you mentioned Cali, you've got the answer.
    So, we've got a YouTube star on BHW? How cool is that?!
    Do you have the partner account or whatever it's called?
    How much do you actually get paid, if it's not a secret?

    Youtube star? No way!
    I am just a regular guy working full time, but running a youtube channel as a hobby.
    My channel is very small and I don't see myself making any reasonable money with this thing.
    However I still would like to grow my channel (i.e. views and subscribers) even if it would not pay my bills.
    I can't say my earning because it would be a laughing stock for the 99% of posters in this website. hehe.
