Honestly, I don’t search because I’m interested in unique, lesser known stories and the results tend to bring me to what’s popular. The unique, lesser-knowns are just too hard to reach sometimes, especially on mobile. And then sometimes I want a series, and they’re hard to suss out, too. Not impossible, just not worth my time in the search.
Part of that is because the writers are all trying to tag their stories to the same thing, or no one is searching the more obscure term because it’s more obscure and probably requires a more dedicated searcher to come up with.
And I hate the 'length;
Give me a word count. I’m sure 50+ chapters is great for someone (especially for anyone where ads are a PITA)…But I want to know if it’s a good 90k or if it’s 15000 over 40 chapters.
All onboard with the idea of more author-refined details over tags. Was going to suggest something similar. Could help with the advanced search filters.
