    Does anyone know the best days and times to make blog or social media posts when targeting an American audience? I want to try to maximize hits, so I was wondering if it is best to post before work, after work, or on weekends.

    Most of the people seem to agree on the following posting times:

    Google+
    Weekdays between 9 and 10 AM.

    Tweeter
    Weekdays around lunch time
    Weekends - especially on Saturdays

    Facebook
    Weekdays between 1 and 4 PM
    Weekends - especially on Sundays

    Blogging - any time, with increased engagement (comments and social shares) during weekends.

    Some say that Twitter and Facebook posts done around midnight do receive more retweets / shares, as well.

    However, this is as guidance only. You should still do your own tests.
