Do you publish your blog post based on time references?
Like only publish your blog post at certain hours of the day in order to drive more traffic to that blog, does it have any difference if you post them whenever you finish an article?
If you guys have experience about that, what is the best time you choose to publish your posts if your are targeting audience in the US, CA and UK.

Publishing time does not matter that much IMO. I do sometimes look at traffic trends to determine the best time to promote an article via social media etc.

You can publish an article on your blog at 2am. Not many people will read it then, but it will be there when their ready, and it will be there when Googlebot decides to visit and index your page.

I have seen good results placing social media links to recent posts around 3pm-5pm. Seems like people ar tired of being at work and playing on Facebook until time to go home :)

I think maybe a few people may be gained or lost due to what time it was published, but it will not be that much of an issue, I don't think. This is just my opinion, I may be wrong, but I can't see there being an issue with what time you post content.

You probably already know this, but it is important to say that when creating content, make sure it is unique, quality and. very importantly, keep up with the content.

If you are looking for instant traffic it helps. For example, Wonder Woman movie is released. You write a review and publish immediately. You will get a good traffic because people are reading about wonder woman. By publishing on the right time, you can get a huge traffic on current topics. However, if you are looking for long term traffic, publishing time does not matter. For example, you publish article on the health benefits of ginger. It does not matter at what time you publish your article. With proper optimization, it will continue to attract visitors.

There are published reports which you can search in the internet mentioning in details about best posting times, which is 1-5p.m. on weekdays.

For me, generally, it is late in the afternoon between 3p.m. onwards when people tend to relax a bit after working hard in the morning and getting ready to go home. There will be free time to personally check favorite social media sites. The best hours and days depend on the waking, working/schooling, social and sleeping time of your target market. Some hit the waking, mid/after work and before sleeping time.

Timely posting of blogs depend also on the freshness / newsworthiness of the blog (meaning fresh news or features, being the first to publish) and the market's expectation. If your followers are used on getting daily or weekly blogs, then you have to make such practice consistently and surprise them with unexpected newsworthy blogs.

I believe the value and excitement of your posts will be the triggering point in driving traffic. Your followers will be the ones to spread and share the good news around.
