9 thoughts on “StumbleUpon Drives More Traffic Than Reddit: How To Use it Effectively

  1. You’re right. SU is still alive and well. I use it from time to time to ‘channel surf’.

    I’d like to add one more tactic to promoting your content via StumbleUpon. As you build your network of followers on StumbleUpon, share your submissions directly with them. If your content is good, they’re more likely to ‘Like’ it. Thus, adding more weight in getting your content into other users’ stumbles.
    Don’t forget to send a note with your shares.

  2. Hi Alicia,

    StumbleUpon is the best source to get traffic, but the quality of the traffic is very less compared to other platforms, I don’t know why?

    Every blogger believes readers from Stumbleupon not stays for a longer time in our blog, may be because of the mobile optimization of the app is not user-friendly.

    Anyway, thank you very much for sharing the information.

  3. Great article Alicia! Its amazing that SumbleUpon is still up there with the Facebooks and Twitters of the world. I certainly recommend using Twitter as a platform to microblog about what you are seeing on StumbleUpon in order to increase you’re following.

  4. SU still brings traffic to my site. It’s a good place to promote your content. Infographics get more engagement than a plain text.

  5. Nice study and statistics about stumbleUpon. Yes we must only submit high quality articles in stumbleUpon to get engaged with users and have more comments and followers. Thank you for the nice advises.

  6. Hey Alicia,

    Nice explanation about SU traffic. Andrel is also correct about sharing the content with our followers. But, the only thing people have to lookout is continuously pinging them with your content(if its not there interest) will only add to the problem.

    Stumbleupon drives direct traffic if one post their links continuously.

  7. Alicia,

    This was an incredibly helpful and thorough explanation of why SU is a salient aspect of accruing traffic to one’s blog or site.

    I’ve been using SU for a couple years now, and it has brought solid numbers to both my previous site and my new blog. It’s really helpful, and you also find some great gems and inspiration on there!

    Loved your explanation and voice!

    Your tips are very important to the beginner bloggers.
