State of Search Readers Like to Read at Lunchtime

21 October 2011 BY

At State of Search we want to keep developing, so we try to improve the site wherever we can. And to do that we try and find out what the readers like best. So we try and ask you some questions. Last week we asked you on Facebook at what time they preferred reading posts.

It turns out that most people like lunchtime as the best time to read posts, followed by “whenever I have time”. An important factor in when people read posts is the title of the post. If the title triggers enough it doesn’t matter at what time the post is published or sent out into the social atmosphere. You can find the results of the poll below, as well as a link to our newest poll: How do you usually get alerted to a post?

Will you help us improve the site? Answer this weeks question here! We’ll share the answers with you again!
