As it turned out, the best time for an uploading is during midweek afternoons. Frederator advises that the best hours are between 2 pm and 4 pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and from 12 pm until 3 pm on Thursday and Friday.
On weekends, however, the one who wakes up first, wins! The study collected data from 120 million views per month on a total of 1,300 channels and concluded that on Saturday and Sunday the best time is between 9 am and 11 am.
Of all the days of the week to post, however, Thursday and Friday are best. As most YouTube viewers are school-age children or young adults, viewership generally begins to ramp up on Thursday, peaks on Saturday and then tapers off on Sunday afternoon.
Due to the age of YouTubers majority, the worst months to post are May and September. Teens use to start new activities at these 2 months of the year, which tend to be more related to outdoor.
Sports, vacations or starting school can affect users’ life and time spent on YouTube.
