Traffic from stumbleupon.com

    Hi everyone,

    My latest hub is getting half its traffic from stumbleupon.com.  I never posted it/promoted it there (barely know what it is, really, I'm such a dummy!), so I wonder how come I'm getting traffic from there. 

    I know it's my latest hub that gets hit from stumbleupon first because I'd never noticed this before and then because all hits from there are in the lst 24 hours.

    I've searched the site for the title, the url, some key words, haven't found it.  Can someone help me understand this?  Here's the hub (just posting as reference for the searches, you don't need to click smile)

    Title: Spring a la Babbley
    URL: http://hubpages.com/hub/Sping-a-la-Babbley

      You're getting traffic because someone else stumbled it, which is actually how sites like that are supposed to work.  You're not supposed to submit your own sites.

    Think of it as word of mouth advertising. Someone likes what you have written, and they tell their friends. They then tell their friends, and so on and so forth.

    Yeah, it's really a great thing to have happen to you! Stumbleupon is a good traffic source, so count yourself blessed.

    Based on the comment the person left on stumble upon, they liked your pictures and your captions under them! Nice job!

    In my experience, StumbleUpon brings a lot of lookers in a short space of time, but not really meaningful, interactive traffic (ie people who read the whole Hub or click on links/ads)

    relache, WeddingConsultant, WHoArtNow,  many thanks for explaining that to me!

    WeddingConsultant -- The photo you posted isn't available, but I'll take your word for everything you said smile

    relache - I'm not really concerned with traffic or clicks (none of my hubs contain any commercial capsule) and I don't think I've looked at adsense account ever, that is, in case I have such an account! :-)

    My fretting over this is because somebody copied my content last week, and Iwas fearing something of the kind again.

    I appreciate all your help, folks!

    Absolutely, WeddingConsultant!!  Many thanks for fetching that for me!  That looks so cool, now that I see it with my own eyes! :-)  I'm really grateful to you, thanks!
