Hi, I've been wondering about this for a long time. Is there a 'perfect' time (of day) to publish your articles -- in terms of search engine bots catching it fresh and the bulk of your subscribers reading it while it's hot?

I did a bit of informal research on this, the BEST time seemed to be tuesday morning (according to the timezone of the bulk of your readers).

I have never carried out any sort of research into this but I would imagine the best time to publish would be just before the web seek it's busiest period.
This would give your blog the most exposure to all the ping services that may publish your article.
