How do I use StumbleUpon

I was reading an interesting post on here: http://www.v7n.com/forums/google-for...-referrer.html

For the past few months I've been hereing plenty of good things about StumbleUpon. In fact I've heard of people having thousands of referrals. Which is great for them (right?) but it doesn't help me.

The reason being is that I don't know how to use StumbleUpon. In fact I never get any views on the pages I bookmark.

Can anyone who uses Stumbleupon effectively give me some tips to get more referrals.

The first thing you want to do is provide a means for people to stumble your website. The more people who tumble it the more visitors you will get.

Another thing you can do is to get people you know to stumble your pages.

You could change your sig to ask people to stumble your sites instead of linking to them.

Here is a diagram of how stumbleupon works

Interesting. I guess the websites were already viral which is why they can continually leverage social bookmarking websites to get more traffic.

Thanks for the good answer. Hard to find on forums.

stumbleupon is the most wonderful resource to get good traffic. Just follow the people with similar interests, promote your products or services without any spam, write reviews and get more views and reviews for your website.

Stumble upon is a great way of increasing traffic through peer sourcing and social networking principles. Although i just started using it, i am really enjoying it.

To go through Stumbleupon first of all post news about you/your site/ something interesting/pictures or anything else which you want to share with others. Interesting titles are also very helpful in order to attract the people. When you will be followed by many people then that would be a good use of Stumbleupon.

I bookmark my links on digg and stumbleupon always. It is very simple to use it, you can add friends having the same interest and than add links to your favorites and write useful reviews in a way that it would invite people to interact with you about it. I guess, its easy.

Become my friend on StumbleUpon and if you send me awesome shares...we can help each other by getting various url's stumbled across the globe.

The key is to have folks in your network that send you different sites, rather than the same domains continuously.

Take a look at several of my blog posts and leave your Stumble id behind..I'll get ya added to where the network of stumblers help each other.

You need to first get integrated with the site before you start trying to use it for personal benefits. I suggest creating an account, getting familiar with how it works, doing a lot of stumbling, discovering, reviewing, etc. (you'll know what these mean once you get integrated...if you don't know what they mean then you aren't ready to start using it for personal benefits). Then you need to start reaching out to users with similar interests and that are active. Start following them and seeing if they'll follow you back. Once you have a good following base you can now start discovering your own links. Never only discover your own site. Mix it up with other stuff too so that it's natural. Then you can start sharing your content with your friends. Hopefully if your content is good then they'll share it with their friends and from there the viral effect will take off.

Maybe next time you will get some experience first and then share? We're trying to help here, not just post to post, right?

StumbleUpon is an EXCELLENT site to use - they have doubled their traffic in the last six months!

"StumbleUpon has one of the best communities. The users are friendly and discover some great online content. You need to recommend sites to others, make friends, and provide well written reviews. Just like you want your blog readers to value your opinion, you need your StumbleUpon friends to value your opinion. Donít be a social media abuser."
