How to Find the Best Date and Time to Publish your Blog Post Using Google Analytics

I have a treat for you today! We are currently in the middle of a series of blog posts on Understanding Analytics. This is a bonus post.

Today, I show you how to determine the best date and time to publish your blog post, according to your Google Analytics.

highest trafficked day of the week
Best day of the week to post = Friday.
Highest trafficked time of the day
Best time of the day to post: 9 am, 10 am and 12 noon.

Well, if you know the day of the week, and the time of the day that is most busy on your blog, then that’s the time you should be scheduling your blog posts to go live. You want to take advantage of the naturally busy time on your blog, and reward your readers with fresh content.

Here’s a video that shows you how to do it, and the links you need to generate the custom reports are below.
