>Top Ten Page Views for May 2008

>Well, Almond’s “Pornography” is back on top again. I think I always sort of knew that at least part of its page views were coming from folks who weren’t necessarily looking for a good story to read. Now that we have our referrers being tracked, it’s become a little clearer that that’s the case. In looking at the top referrers for “Pornography,” seven of the top ten referrers are searches for “Porno” on various different Microsoft search enginges. Ah, well. I hope that a few of them get over their disappointment at not finding pud-pulling material long enough to give it a read. It’s a hell of a story.

About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
