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 )
Title: Spring a la Babbley
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
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!

Today I posted my new hub, called 'How to get the Perfect Night's Sleep' and when I came back hours later it had garnered nearly a 100 hits! I checked the traffic source, and it was StumbleUpon.

I been on a couple of days and pretty much all my traffic is from hubpages. I get a couple from digg but that is about it. How are people getting their traffic from google and other search engine?

Hi i'm new to hubpages so i was wondering how does one get traffic to your hubs? Making a lot of hubs that go unvisited hardly seem to be the smart way to go. I must be doing something wrong or i'm not doing something...

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...

One of my hubs has had increased traffic from Stumleupon. Is there any way to know who posted it on Stumbleupon? I'd like to give thanks! I don't know anything about that site.
