Yes. I love Stumble Upon, and I always stumble my post after I publish it. Is it good to stumble every post that you published on your blog? Yes. If it’s informative, thoughtful – why not? Stumble Upon has huge traffic so take advantage of exposing your masterpieces to that popular social network.

Discover your post. Stumble it for the very first time and supply the right tags, keywords, and summary of your post.

Do I Stumble on a regular basis?

Yes, I do. The more you stumble, the more you get traffic… and the more you build your connections, the more you can get traffic and stumbles!

Does Stumble Upon traffic share a significant part of my Google Analytics traffic report?

Yes. It’s on number 2! Okay, am not getting millions, but a start-up blog you should appreciate little improvements on your traffic… One secret – do not check your analytics or pageviews every day. You might get disappointed.

Check it like once a month and you will be surprised. I am surprise with how COD increases unique visitors this March 2013… well, am not revealing it yet or unless you will privately ask me (LOL)!

Does Stumble Upon brings quality and targeted traffic to your site or blog?

Yes, and no. We will find out, and you will be surprised how simple the answer is.

  • Yes – if you are writing quality contents, bounce rate is low. People may find it worthy spending some time reading your post. Putting keywords or tags every time you discover your post play a vital rule.
  • No – well, if your content is another “garbage” and “spun” content on the web… I guess it’s not worth it, and if you ask me I won’t like it…

Do I committed a mistake on stumbling? Yes, I am human, and I even stumbled my “garbage” content and I found it regretful.

Do I use Stumble Upon Badge on my blog?


Of course. Not all your readers and visitors use the browser add on. Peoples are in a hurry like me. When I visited helpful blogs out there I won’t mind sharing them to social networks… as long as I enjoy reading their contents – but If I can’t find a way to share it, I won’t waste time unless the piece am reading is top notch!

  • Try Sharethis or Addthis – they are great social sharing tools available today!

Do I use browser add on for Stumble Upon?


Yes. Honestly, 24/7 is not enough for me to do everything in my life. I have my work. I have my sidelines to make some extra money online. I have my personal life. Oh no – what’s left? I might have consumed all day to try to finish all the important tasks without sleep! Am a zombie!

Thanks to browsers add ons – one of them are Stumble Upon extension for major used browsers like Mozilla and Chome! Use it too and make stumbling easier than ever!

  1. Hi Prime,
    Looks like I am the first visitor here, good for me 🙂
    Thanks for sharing your tips on stumble upon. You mentioned very good tips for me, I didn’t use the keyword and the summary when stumbling my posts 🙁
    I also check my Google analytics on a daily basis, seems like I should stop that habit !
    I use Add this and I totally agree, it’s a great tool.
    Now to my question: Are all ” links to your site” at (Google webmaster tool) dofollow links, are they considered by Google when ranking? If yes, I may add that Pinterest has a significant affect on backlinks. Do you agree?
    I will follow your tips, and let you know at the end of April 🙂

    • Hi Dima,

      You are my first visitor and I am happy that you find this article about SU helpful. Actually, no one can stumble unless someone has discovered useful pages and posts on the web. That’s why you need to discover it first, then someone can stumble that. Just like they discovered relevant pages so you can stumble on your end.

      I am not sure, but I guess it’s not all dofollow, it’s just report – but from there you can see how important those links are too your site. Are sites linked to your blog are relevant? I mean, do they have relationship with each other? Are they talking the same or related topics?

      So, I know that you are very eager to read post about pinterest – now instead of rewriting myself I will give you a link here. To summarize, connections and presence is helpful for SEO. Pinterest is one of the most visited social media today, and it is supposed to use that way… it’s not a tool for SEO but a community for SEO. Using Stumble Upon has pretty the same concept – connections, not all self-promotions ( and I am going to work hard more for that Dima).

  2. Hi Prime,

    There’s so much information here. For someone like me who’s been dragging my feet with social media this is quite a tutorial. I didn’t know you could stumble your own article.

    I’ll have to pore over this some more and start taking notes here. Be ready for the questions coming up but thanks for sharing this lesson on how to best use Stumble Upon.


    • Hi Jen,

      Good to see you here my friend! Yes, social media has a lot of interesting rules for make money blogging, affiliate marketing, internet marketing, and especially making money on the internet programs in general. It’s medium to our prospects and search engines.

      Actually, the term is not stumbling, it’s discovering. Since you need to discover your post first before anyone can stumble it. But, when your article is viral, visitors may discover it first, and then you can stumble it the next time around.

      Discovering is done to recognize helpful contents – so it can go viral for others to benefit… that’s the concept behind, however Stumble Upon is not a tool, it’s a community, so our participation to the community of stumblers is necessary so we can make use of its benefits (traffic and backlinks)! 🙂

      Anyway, am ready for your questions my friend.
