A question of being completely non computer savvy and not understanding the way things work here.
OK, I give in. I started on Triond on December 12th last year, have posted, what I think is a tremendous number od article, stories, poems, steamy tales and descriptive prose, to the tune of around 350 sperate posts, but I still have had less than 5,000 views in total, my best day achieving a mind-blowing 220! I get loads of comments, telling me how good my stuff is, yet it does not catch on?
I have it posted on facebook, twitter, my blog, have joined the grabbedarticles site, socialmonkee and sidetick, doing everything I can think of to promote the staggeringly good written works that stem from my fevered brain, yet I still manage more hits per day on environmentalgraffiti, where I have 241 articles posted, than I ever get on triond, despite no longet putting new stuff onto that site! I could really use someone explaining to me how this is possible?
My stats show that 64% od my viewers are in ther UK, only 23% in the USA, so my humble efforts must not appeal to our American friends, else I simply choose to write about completely the wrong things? I have looked, many times, at what is supposedly hot, and what isn’t, but even my trying to put out posts on topics that might be popular seem unable to hit the mark. I had one post on EG that got 80,000 plus hits, and several others that managed 20K plus, so why not on triond?
Then too, there seems to be a lull in my viewing figures every time I have nothing new published over the preceding twelve to sixteen hours. Three new posts them, almost inevitably, lead to what, for me, is a big upsurge in interest again. Am I guilty of having posted far too muchg, far too soon, of spoiling the audience with such a glut of new stuff that my older posts no longer interest them? That would be terrible, because I puit these things out there, with the sincere wish that many, many people will read them.
If anyone among you has the slightest idea what, if anything, I am NOT doing right, then I would really appreciate your letting me know. I an a good contributor to triond, and get plenty of complimentary comments about the things I create and post, but sometimes I do wonder just what it will take to get into the heady hierarchy of people who have had thier work seen, and appreciated, by tens of thousands of eager viewers. Right now, getting into that club seems an ambition too far, but maybe one day.
