oy, I was on fanfiction.net a while before folks started to notice. Same with my websites. Took awhile for folks to show up. What finally got a few folks knocking was that I read some stories, left some comments, and they checked out who I was, maybe just to see who dared to comment on their works, maybe to see if I knew what I was talking about, who knows. Well, I guess they know. Point being, once they returned the comment, others took notice and it started to snowball. I suppose you can call it "seeding." 'least that's what they call it business. Hope that helps.

Do you have a visitor tracker on you site to monitor the traffic? There are ones that you can put on your site that will monitor the region, time and number of unique visitors. I have one on my site where I post my stories and it shows that I have about 150 to 200 unique visitors a day. It also shows how many are repeat visitors. Those are the ones that check back constantly for updates. This way you can tell if there is still interest in your story regardless of comments left or not. When I really enjoy a fanfic, sometimes I am so engrossed in it that I forget to leave a comment. I wouldn't worry too much about comments if your traffic flow is steady.

What, you used to get everyone who read your stories reviewing them? Wow. I get about 1 review to every 40 views. If it's dropping off, though, there are a few possibilities: 1) They reviewed you in the hope that you were going to change your plot and write the precise genre of story they love. You didn't. They went away. 2) All your updates are very similar. There are only so many times they want to read that particular set of plot devices. 3) You used to write for a very popular fandom. It's now less popular, and many people have moved on to the next big thing. 4) You've grown up and your writing style has matured. They haven't - it's no longer the teen Mary Sue fic they enjoy. But basically most people don't review. I've seen people comment in forum posts (not to me) how much they love my stories and recommend them to others. Some of them have never reviewed me even once.

Hmm. If they didn't like your story, wouldn't they write a bad review? I don't think "lack of reviews" is a good way to measure success or failure; it just means people are lazy, busy, or figure you won't even care if you get reviews. Have you given them reviews in return? You might be in a tit-for-tat situation where they want the same thing they gave you. If you put a lot of stock into other's opinions, you could leave an author's note at the top of each story/chapter asking the readers to give a review.

You can always get a geoSite ( it is free) or advertise your fics on different fan groups. What is your fanfiction anyway?

History of art by Jenkins (I think) is a classic used by universities in edition after edition I had it in 1960s. it is fairly expensive but very multi discipline you need more than one book. I have a BS in physics, did very well in humanities and I estimate I have read more than 10,000 in my life now I just waste my time on Y Q & A You can be a specialist, learn more and more about less and less until you know every thing about nothing or you can generalize, learn less and less, about more and more, until you know nothing about everything
