There are a few different ways to locate popular reading times. The easiest way is to look at the time stamps on the Publication (Openings). This article will show you how to find the popular reading times with a custom report.
1. Go to your customization tab in Google Analytics
2. Click 'New Custom Report'
Depending on your previous activity in Google Analytics, you might have a number of custom reports already. The popular reading times report will be added as the latest one.
3. Fill out the forms exactly like the image below.
When selecting a view, you can select either a single view or all views on the account.
*Remember to set the filter to ‘Regex’ to make sure Google can find all the event data.
4. Click 'Save'. Now you should be able to see the data from the Popular Reading Times.
The data shows the number of Publication (Openings) every hour for the selected date range. You will often see a peak in the morning around 8 and a peak in the evening if your publication has early release.
