What All eBay Sellers Should Know About Blog Post Timing

Most progressive eBay sellers are now blogging to sell products, educate customers, manage public relations, and provide customer service. Most simply post when they can.

A new study discovered that there are advantageous and disadvantageous times during the day and week to blog.

Ah data analysis. I love it.

In a nutshell (hey, I’m in a nutshell get me out of here)… here’s what they found:

After lunch, between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM (PST – Pacific Standard Time) is the best time to post on any given week day. Between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM is also good (after work). Thursday is the best day.

What’s the worst time to post? Between 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM PST on the weekends. Everybody’s out doing something else. That makes weekends a good time to get posts together and then schedule them for posting on weekdays in the optimal time slots.

Now get out there and post.

That's a great point. One question, do you know if anyone is utilizing seo to drive more users into ebay stores? I havent seen anything out there that really solves this issue.

Ebay has a post about this:

eBay Store Search Engine Optimization SEO Tricks & Tips

Some obvious stuff.. and better links.

Technically, an eBay store should be optimized just like any other Web page in order to gain Google juice. Some of the formats for stores, however, may prevent optimal content. There should be ways to customize around this, though.
