    I have mine own ideas on the topic but I was curious what the forum thought:

    When is the best time to post an item on the B&S thread? I'm talking: Time of day and even day of the week.

    The idea is what time will your post have the best chance to get the most views.

    What are your thoughts? When are you most likely to check out the B&S thread?

    I have found that item/price have much larger bearing on views and ultimate sale than the timing.

    All depends what you're selling, some things won't shift even if every person on the forum see them.

    I usually list on Sat or Sunday AMs.

    Perhaps this coming one.

    I hear you, but all things being equally, step 1 should be "When will I get the most eyes on my post." Step 2 is "the product will sell itself." Any business/marketing majors reading this? Sound familiar? "The Product Era" - Marketing 101.

    You definitely have to have the goods to get any interest on SF - which I love; I love working with people who know quality. But there are some other factors that go into it like timing, pictures, details, and pricing.

    But back to the point, I was just curious when sellers find it the best time to post and when buyers are most likely to take a look at the B&S thread. If there is one at all.

    I usually bump my sales thread when I see high number of viewer on forum.

    RSS feeds get you 30 mins after new listings are posted, unless you hit refresh on front page every 30 seconds

    Probably the smart move.
