a nonfiction novel by Albert Wang, or a portrait of the artist as a young failure…

He Qi, a couple of things. I had to unpublish your last two posts. It appears you just pasted an email and a conversation. Not only does this fall outside our editorial guidelines, the content was way too long (which is true for several of your posts).

I have also noticed a declining trend in page views since April, perhaps these things have something to do with it. Lastly, I hate to beat you up here, but we are going to have to end the ASSASANATION tags as well, as that does not fit our requirements either.

However, here is what I am proposing, as you have a great voice and talent that I do not want to lose due to these changes. I would like to see your column grow, but with more links and shorter articles (you can do a series of articles for pieces that merit more attention), because my fear is your articles are not being picked up by search engines as a result of SEO because of the minimal links and the headlines (ASSASANATION), and readers are not coming back because of the lengths. I would like to try link heavy shorter pieces for a month (800 word max) and see what kind of traffic increase we get. If nothing, or down, we can go back to doing it your way. Deal?

Thank Qi, you are doing a great job, but its my job to make it even better!
