Serious question, how is Letter Pile doing for everyone? Is anyone getting daily traffic for their flash fiction? I have a post I could transfer here that I'm reasonably certain HP would love. However, the reformatting would be a lot of work. It's been my experience that no matter where flash fiction is posted, Google grandly ignores it. I'm hoping that Letter Pile is finally the exception.
I consider it the place where my articles go to die.
Actually I'm pretty satisfied with LetterPile for my flash fiction, at least compared with any alternatives of which I am aware. I have 5 flash fiction stories there. A couple get pretty good views, one gets practically none, and the others are in the middle.
The ones doing well have managed to attract Google traffic, as the accompanying stats image shows. I followed another hubber's advice, which was to include both "flash fiction" and a searchable term in the title, so that it would come to the attention of people looking for stories about that subject.
Bottom line: I definitely think LetterPile is worthwhile. As with most hubs, I think the 80/20 rule applies, so most won't get a lot of traffic, but some might.
I do not write flash fiction, but I have 4 articles on Letterpile. I only have one article that gets decent daily traffic (at least to my standards). Ironically, it's an article that I do not believe should even be on Letterpile, but I have not had any luck with staff in getting it moved. Traffic did not tank after moving, but it didn't really get a boost either.
I have a poem that gets spikes in traffic every now and then, but my other two (poem & personal essay) get very little traffic at all (less than 20 views a month). I try really hard to stay off Letterpile, because like Kierstin I feel like it is not a good place to get traffic.
Interesting about the poem getting traffic spikes.
Spikes might not be the best way to describe it as the traffic doesn't usually jump too much higher, but there are times I see quite a bit more traffic than usual (although 0-15 isn't much to start with in the first place).
My higher traffic times seem to coinside with religious holidays (especially Lent and Christmas). I'm expecting a slight increase in views soon, but usually it's under 20 daily/most of the year.
From what I've experienced, any form of online fiction that gets daily double-digit traffic is awesome. I'd be totally fine with that; it's certainly better than what I'm getting now.
Shesabutterfly, the article I have on there should be on PairedLife. It’s not fiction at all and that’s something that worries me about some of the niche sites - they need to be truly niche, not mixing fiction with how-to pieces.
I completely agree! I just had an article I submitted for Owlcation moved to Letterpile this morning and am currently trying to get it moved to Owlcation.
I feel like Letterpile is a put all for them. If they don't know where to put an article it gets sent to Letterpile. The article I'm currently fighting is under personal essay. Not even sure how it ended up there considering I'm not an author of one of the four gospels, and did not witness the Resurrection of Jesus Christ (which is what my article is about).
I know theology is not everyone's cup of tea, but that is what makes it so important to have good quality editors who know about the topics they are editing and to have a place for all these niche topics to go. Owlcation has a theology section, but it's like pulling teeth to get articles placed there.
Considering your article should be on PairedLife, I would also worry about your creditibility. Something the editors should be considering too, before placing articles on Letterpile. Letterpile is such a mix mash of different topics, none that really require credentials that having stuff categorized wrong, make us look bad. Especially when we are trying to be experts in our fields. I feel like I have just lost so much creditibilty for this article and it doesn't help the longer it stays up on Letterpile.
I've just discovered it's getting darned hard these days to find out a website's traffic.
Well, sports fans. I've done more research and I'm going to wait and see how the site does in March.
I've currently got two flash fiction hubs on Letterpile. One does reasonably well and traffic is spiking over the last few days. The other is limping along. My view is that I have these stories sitting on my laptop and they may as well go into a hub and earn a few dollars along the way

What happens to an article that goes to LetterPile? Is it a good sign or a bad sign? I have not been on here in a long time and just got back on a few days ago. I had never heard of LetterPile until just recently.

It has been quite a few years since I've published any new content, and I noticed that we now have different websites that we can submit content too. How do I go about submitting work to Letterpile.com? Thank you so much for the help,Mike Hazelwood

There’s a new network site in town, and its name is “HealthProAdvice.com.” And it may get a little crowded, because there are also two more new sites (branching off of the HealDove brand) in the works! If you want to get to know the newcomers, head on over to the official blog post →...
