Delay in scheduled posts being published on Facebook.

    When I initially set up my scheduled posts there seemed to be a 2hr time lag between publishing the post and it being posted to my Facebook. I could cope with this and just adjusted the time accordingly. My last post however was scheduled to post at 6pm (and it did) but didn’t appear on my Facebook (or Twitter) until 4.30am.
    Is there anything I can do to stop the time lags?

    The blog I need help with is hometownidiot.wordpress.com.

    i think that helps, although I was hoping to use the Facebook post to drive traffic to the site which won’t work if nobody goes to the site in the first place.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi there,

    As you saw from the links above, scheduled posts only actually publish when someone views your site after the scheduled time. On a new site this means you might need to visit your site a few times to trigger the posts, but as your site gets indexed by search engines and they start sending you more traffic that should become necessary less and less, as the natural flow of traffic to your site will ensure that posts publish close to their actual scheduled times.
