Most sites on this guide get almost all their traffic from this website and most of us link back to it. That's great but it means the community as a whole is a little incestuous and doesn't grow much. We all benefit when the community as a whole grows and more readers are attracted. Anyone who really likes a web serial enough to read it all is probably going to visit web fiction guide and be exposed to other serials.
Thus I thought I would start a discussion on ways to get more views from sources outside the community, and not from this site. I know there are some older threads but none of them are quite this specific. Please just make sure you have obvious links back to web fiction guide. So I will start it off.
