Right now I post my comic Hominids at several different places. My website, Tapastic and Comixology. I do this largely to grow my exposure and be in different places.
I'm curious about other peoples experiences as to whether they have better luck bringing people to one place as opposed to many?

I post mine on my own site and also Tapastic, The Duck (aka Drunk Duck : P), Smack Jeeves, and Comicfury. And I post preview images on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Tumblr, and Instagram. It's a bit of work, but I'm kind of addicted to the feedback I get collectively from all these places, since my own site doesn't have page comments.

Also, last I checked anyway, which was years ago, I did get some traffic from the mirror sites to my main site, so it's more or less free advertising; and the social media sites bring even significantly more traffic than that--especially Instagram, once I discovered only recently how to use hashtags there :P. Instagram alone--and I'm not at all a popular account on Instagram or anything--took my main site from something like 3-4k page views / day to 6-7k/day. : o

That's great to know. I've also gotten some traffic to my main site from Tapastic (and even got reviewed after someone found my Comixology). I haven't tried hosting on Smack Jeeves or Comicfury. I did Drunk Duck awhile ago but the site was a mess for awhile so I gave up on it.
Sounds like it's worth it to get it out there to as many sites as possible though. I think I'll try those three.
My social networking has been pretty good but I'm curious how you track people coming from Instagram? I haven't been able to track that.

Thanks for the helpful reply by the way.

Yeah it's not direct tracking, I just know what my average page hits were before I started posting on Instagram, and what they suddenly went up to after I started posting there regularly.

I'm hosting through my own site, but honestly, a lot of the traffic comes through tumblr and instagram through side art and doodles.

I post my comic on my website only and post links to it on social media.

Maybe cast=all would work in the place of where you had used the cast tag?

Ive never dealt with the cast tag, so this is a stab in the dark.

you shouldadd it to your website and any forum about comics. If you add comics to your website don't fixasparet forget to advert your website so many people can see your website and comics. If you want to know how to do this let me know.
