How to Find Your Very Own Best Time to Post on Google+

Do you know your very own best time to post on Google+? Are you using it to get more +1s, shares, website traffic and sales?

At the beginning of this year, I published an infographic on the Best and Worst Times and Days to Post on Social Media.

Perfect Time to Post Your Social Media Updates [Infographic]

In this I also included the best time to post on Google+ so that you can reserve it for your most important posts. The timing mentioned in the infographic is perfect for those with relatively new accounts and those who haven’t posted much. But once you have posted plenty and have sufficient data, you need to find your very own best time to post on Google+ as it will vary from person to person.

This step can be effortlessly executed using Timing+. A free tool created by Daniel Treadwell.

    This tool has been amazing! Your graphic was amazing and I have been using it faithfully but since the US has three time zones, I was left with some questions. This tool is very specific and I wish it existed for all the social media.

    Also, since I have never commented before, I wanted to take this time to thank you. I am new to social media and it has been overwhelming to say the least. Your emails have been great guidance and have been helping unravel this mysterious world.

    Thank You!

    Hey Mitt,

    I found this post pretty eye opening and a topic that I have not even given much thought to and after reading this, it is evident that I need to be watching it a little better.

    I used to just post to G+ just whenever and I guess I was just thinking that it would do it’s magic!

    Thank you so much for sharing!
