A few weeks ago I started writing an article that was vital to us as bloggers, but never published it. It was concerning how often should you create and publish your content.
Although many people say posting frequently is the best way to improve traffic, increase readership, and rank high in Google search engines, this may not always be the case and may harm your blog in other ways, KEEP READING .
This question have been ask by many and I’m still not sure what many of you think is the correct answer and appropriate number of articles that should be published and how often.
They’re many things that have to be taken in to consideration when creating and publishing your content. Time is the biggest factor and plays a key roll in publishing.
How often should you publish your content?
Depending on your situation and the demand for your content is I would have to say everyone has a different reason why they publish their content at different times and days of the week.

Did you realize that you should take in to consideration how well your blog or website is performing? That’s right.
If your blog is not generating enough readerships then by publishing to often you may not be giving your new and potential, readers enough time to read your content.
Example: Weekly content publishing:
For me publishing once a week is more then enough and for the most part fairly easy to maintain. During the week I have time to choose a topic and also start writing some of my content down for later publishing.
My posting schedule is primarily on Saturdays or maybe even Sundays, depending how busy I am, but you can be sure I will be posting at least one article each week for my readers.
Seven days is a reasonable amount of time to allow your readers to brows your website, read your articles and even comment.
Remember most people have a 9 to 5, jobs and don’t have a lot of time on their hands to read blog post let a lone commenting.
By post multi times a week will interfere with people finding your content and maybe even gaining a new reader or subscriber.
Give your readers enough time:
Are you giving your readers enough time to visit your blog and read your important article that you’ve spent so much time creating just for them?
Don’t bury your post by creating a large numbers of articles each week because most people that visit your blog will only search for article recently posted and may miss out on reading your content.
Is there such a thing as publishing to much? You bet it is, some may even consider it a form of spam if you have subscribers on your list and may not even take the time to read your post.
Think about it for a moment, you publish one, two, or maybe even three time a week, how would anyone be able to keep up with reading your content if they have a busy work schedule.
Remember if your website or blog, is not getting enough readers or traffic, then why publish daily or twice a week, it may only hurt your blog because your visitors might be missing out on your content because your old post will just get pushed to the bottom of the pile.
Working for an industry were you would be expected to produce articles daily would be a different situation because people read news papers and other articles everyday, but! Your blog may not be receiving the same amount of traffic as a larger website and therefore your visitors will be missing out on your content.
How often should you publish your articles?
1- By Weekly?
2- Twice a week or more?
3- Every two weeks?
4- Once a month
My question to you would be what is a reasonable amount of content that should be published and how often should you publish it?
