>Top Ten Page Views for January 2009

>Another month of big activity from StumbleUpon. The pieces by Pendarvis, Kinsella, Maltezos, Hunt, Leary, Chopan, Bundy, and Cooper all had higher referral rates from there than from any other site. Huai’s hits came from her inteview, which in turn got its traffic from China Adopt Talk. AichenbaUm, Chopan, Bundy, and Cooper got most of their hits from the front page of SmokeLong (which makes me wonder if it’s unfair to some authors to list the contents on the front page alphabetically… hmmm). Leary’s hits are largely from people googling for very short stories.

1. (2) Taco Foot by Jack Pendarvis (12/15/07)
2. (NR) Phoenix by W.P. Kinsella (12/15/08)
3. (3) Beautiful by Antonios Maltezos (10/2/08)

In total, it was another good month, with 107,988 page views.

Edit: By the way, our total page views for last year (I just checked) was 1,108,463. How cool is that?!

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.
