For example, if I post an article Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and then nothing else for the rest of the week... is that worse or better than posting an article Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

I was thinking of doing 4 posts a month.... spreading them out every week... or should I just post them ass I finish, to get them out in the public sooner?

If the question is about blog post timing then I guess it depends on the niche you're in but I would suggest posting between 9 and 11am to get the most eyeballs on a new post but again this will depend on the niche. If you're not sure about the best posting time or day then you could use an analytical tool like visitstat.com to discover what time and what days your site receives the highest number of page views and then post at these times on and those days.

As for the number of posts you post to you're blog each day/week or month then the more the better as long as they high quality post that offer value. This will help keep you're content fresh and keep visitors returning.

I should have specified, I meant specifically for Search Engines. A lot of my traffic is from Search Engines. So I imagine the more quality content the better, and that time or date doesn't matter as long as it is there (and high quality)?

I'll tell you a trick. Go to Google Analytics, see from which countries your visitors come and visit your site. Depending you the top 3 countries (I personally target USA) post at appropriate hours when people are not working, let's say: 8 AM - 9 AM then 5 PM - 7 PM.

If your running a blog, then it's not enough to add 4 post per month on your blog. I would write articles and post at least 4-5 times per week.

If your blog has evergreen content on it and you are focused on getting traffic from search engines, then it doesn't matter all that much what time you post. Don't overthink it.

If your blog has time sensitive content on it, like you are talking about current events or news or something along those lines, then posting ASAP is the thing I would do.

If you are trying to build an audience of regular readers of your blog where you get people to come back every week for your new blog post, then you want to publish the same day of the week and as close to the same time as possible so that those readers can find new content at the exact same time every week. You want your blog visit to become part of their standard routine that they do every Monday or every Tuesday or every (pick a day). But that is only if you are trying to attract regular readers.

Yes, this... the material isn't time sensitive, I just want to get more content out there with the right keywords to help search engines lead viewers to my site. The blog is more of a supplement and not the main purpose of the site.

Well then, if the material isn't time sensitive at all, then it doesn't matter when you post it. Just post it and make sure it gets indexed. If you want it to rank high, then make sure you send it some links with a little bit of link juice. And don't forget to use the PageRank contained within your own website to point links at the pages you want to rank higher.

The way you are talking about it, no.

But frequency of publish is something that matters in SEO. In other words Google (in my tests) is showing more value to frequent and scheduled content, then it is sporadic content.

What do you mean by "more value"? The only thing I have ever seen is faster indexing of new pages on a site that is updated at regular intervals. (More frequent bot visits) What are you seeing?

It doesn't matter how frequent you post articles on your blog. The fact is the quality of your article. How relevant it is to your users? Creating a quality and informative post is very important while you blog online.

Timing does' matter, but I think the day matters. If anyone notifies that you updates your blog on the first day of the week. He will definitely visit your website for some new stuff.

90% depends on your niche .

Do a market study and see how many visitors search for your article keywords on google in the last month and see how many found you by searching those . Now calculate how much of the market you own .
Now you must think of how to improve it . One way is finding people who're gonna promote your blog - or you can do this by yourself and keep posting quality content . I would rather read a quality article than a daily one with a few things that could gain my interest .

Also ,if you manage to gain some money out of it , invest them back . Buy someone who can marketize the blog / post content so you would have more free time .
