When is the Best Time to Twitter?

Tracking service and link shortening company Bit.ly found out when your link get’s the most traction on Twitter: Post it on a Monday between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. ET.
They released new data on the best and worst times to share links on popular social networks, from Facebook and Twitter to blogging site Tumblr.

The company revealed that posting links to Twitter between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time will give you the highest click rank, especially early in the week. Meanwhile, sending a tweet with a link after 8:00 p.m. should be avoided — as should posting links after 3:00 p.m. on Fridays.

However, Facebook’s optimal posting times are slightly different than Twitter. Links sent between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. get the most traction, with Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. being the best time to post on Facebook all week. Bit.ly recommends not posting the links you want to go viral during the weekend or between 8 pm and before 8am.

On the other hand, Tumblr has a much different usage pattern than Facebook and Twitter:  wait until at least 4:00 p.m. ET. to post important content, and posts after 7:00 p.m.Eastern Time on Monday and Tuesday, as well as on Sundays, get the most clicks during a 24-hour period. Friday evening is the best time to post on Tumblr — a time bit.ly recommends to avoid on Facebook and Twitter!

Keep in mind, these times are for North American users only, the ones in Australia, Asia and Europe have completely different times. It all depends if you want to get hits only from the USA and Canada.  As an English speaking Writer you might be interested in an international audience…

Imagine:  You write a new blog post or edit your website and with one click on your computer your article or web entry is spread all over the internet to each and every social media site or blog roll you ever registered before.
The more often a web page is submitted and tagged, the better chance it has of being found. Social bookmarking continues to grow in popularity, with the addition of many new Social Networking sites offering free (book) marketing services.

It takes a lot of time and effort to visit one Social Network after another and then bookmark all of your web pages using their individual systems. Social Bookmarking services are usually free to join, and are easy to use – but if you really want to maximize your use of them, you need a way to be able to bookmark your web pages as quickly and easily as possible. Here are two programs of many:

SocialBot V4.0
This Windows Program is easy to use and performs all of the mundane tasks that are involved in Social Bookmarking.

At the present time, they support 54 of the most popular Social Bookmarking Services as well as unlimited scuttle sites.

SocialBot V5.0 is a Windows Utility Program that works on both Windows Vista and Windows XP. It is easy to use and it will perform all routine tasks involved in social bookmarking.

The beauty of Social Bookmarking lies in how Social Networking sites aggregate your links in a central location, accessible to other users through the use of Tags (keywords) that you decide are appropriate and not a search engine!  Others in your community may rate your pages based on it’s quality and usefulness, which can create an endless cycle of traffic.
Social bookmarking helps to get the most out of your marketing efforts and to maximize visibility of your blog and website for your book(s).  See the 15 most popular social bookmarking sites
