    I have tried this process, but could not be able to drive traffic to our blog. The king traffic is only organic traffic so try to make the content SEO friendly.

    Best Regards!

      Hello Shadab. You should try the process again and clearly. I drive almost my 30% visitors from SU and trust me it also helps a lot to rank well in SE.

        Yes this is true that we are getting traffic from SU. But my personal experience is that share the post on SU in prime time like after the office time most of people online.

    Stumble Upon is really good if you can utilize it wisely. Take little bit time to explore yourself in SU before you start for big jump.

    you are so right
    the most important element is the title when it comes to social media sites especially stumble upon where people have few seconds to evaluate a page
    thank you

    I think Stumbleupon is the one the best social bookmarking website but somehow it doesn’t get the media hype which other social sites get.

    Thanks for this refreshing article.

    Nishadha, these are great ways in increasing Stumbleupon traffic over time. However I want to add one more thing. There are many people that promise a quick (over-the-night) increase in traffic with the so called Stumbleupon train exchanges. Don’t ever get caught in these traps! I saw some accounts that went from modest traffic per suggestion to no traffic at all or some accounts even suspended. Just a quick warning! ;)

    Really interesting stuff. Honestly, I think I’ve been using StumbleUpon incorrectly for a while now. You have some great ideas and I think they’ll help me get more traffic to my blog from StumbleUpon.

    Some person told me that he got an email from adsense team recently mentioning that they counted SU traffic as auto-surfer.

    Directory submission isn’t a good strategy after penguin update. As most of the directories are spam.

    SU if used wisely can be one of the main source of traffic. It is one of the main referral traffic for me. You are right, building a connection is very important. Like pages which is relevant to you and your connection.
