Should I split my listing?

3 years ago | Qorvus (Member)

I have been considering the option of splitting my listing and was wondering what other people think.

In effect my site has two parts. The first, and original one, is a collection of short fiction, ranging from flash to novella length, so far 19 completed and 2 still ongoing. While some are parts of series, they aren't all part of a single series.

I have recently started a new project though, one that is a more traditional serial. While it is on the same site, it is a separate story.

Should I have a different listing on here for the two parts?

    I'm not really suffering from a glut of clickthroughs, so take my comment with a grain of salt, but I would think you'd want to split them, but make sure that they're clearly linked on the site themselves. That way, someone who wants to read short fiction isn't intimidated by seeing a listing for a traditional serial and vice versa. However, if they like your short stories (or the other way around), there's a ready link for more content.

    I would split them. You're not even really "splitting" them. You're instead listing two completely different things: one a series of unrelated stories, the other a more traditional serial.

    If it's a separate story, I'd make a separate listing. That's what I did, at least. What I might recommend is tagging the story differently, so that you have a separate RSS feed for it. My time travel story starts it's titles with TT and is tagged as such, whereas my Epsilon stories (which are stand alone) I tag 'Story1' 'Story2', etc.

    Split it! You get more time on the front page, maybe some new readers.

    I'd split it. Otherwise you run the risk of readers thinking you're falsely advertising too.
