Original Post

Hi - I've been seeing lots of posts on listing strategies, etc. I took some screen shots of the statistics pages of my personal website. Obviously, this is just my site, and I can't say that these are definitively the best times to post, but if anyone else has stats to offer from their websites, we could perhaps stat to see a trend, and this could be helpful.

The first one is hourly, dshowing the average number of hits each hour of the day:

The second is daily, averaging the number of hits on each day of the week:

If anyone else has stats to share, that would be great!

I don't know about Etsy but the big majority consensus on E-bay is to list Sundays around 8 pm eastern to end the following Sunday at the same time. I think that's when lots of people shop on line.

Another way to think of it is when do you think your target audience will be on line shopping? After the kids are in bed? While they are in school? While hubby is watching football?

I think evenings after dinner and bed time are best.

Thanks!! It appears that the 'middle of the road' is the place to be, so to say.

Post on Wednesday between noon and midnight, huh?

;)
