The day of the week myth
The myth that you should post on a given day of the week stems from email marketing, with some studies citing better open rates at certain times and on certain days.

99.999% of your traffic is going to come over the months and years following your post. This means that the day that you post has basically 0% relevance.
The MAJORITY of your traffic is going to come from search engines and pins.
