The best times to post on
Craigslist has a more
unusual pattern. It sees a steady flow
during the day between 9am to 10pm.
Traffic will however continue up until 1-2am in most cases. The peak times to post are 10am to 11am in
the morning or at 6pm to 9pm. This
changes over Friday and Saturday to 8pm to 10pm in the evening. The unusual behavior of viewers may be
because of its social/commercial mix, along with the fact that (especially in
the USA) it is socially acceptable to break from conversations to check
Craigslist, in the same way it is okay to break conversations in the UK to show
your friends something on YouTube.
