If you haven't yet tried posting your HubPages articles to this site - you should do so today and see if it boosts your traffic - I've had great success with this over the last 2 days.
Just a note about adding a page to StumbleUpon. You must pick one topic about your page, but there are a bazillion topics and they are not in any order (e.g. alphabetical).
StumbleUpon used to be popular for promoting Hubs but unless it's having another "moment", I think it's long past its heyday and not worth doing. You will get some initial interest from people but they're only hoping you'll stumble their stuff too, and it doesn't have much "reach".
You may be lucky if your material is popular, but personally I've had virtually no traffic from Stumbleupon. Also if you post too many backlinks to hubs (and this applies to Reddit also), you can be shadow banned without knowing it.
I view SU in the same vein as Tumblr or Digg. Not fantastic, but not very time consuming, so usually worth a share. Every now and then SU surprises me with like 50 views in a day, but that's about it.
When used alongside Flipboard - it's definitely worth it...
Flipboard has been considerably better of late. It's the best "new kid on the block" for driving external traffic (for me, anyway).
It's worth a try, agree that Flipboard has been the best thus far even though it doesn't add a ton of daily views. What I would give for an article or two to go viral.

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...

Why is there no longer an option to share Hubs on Twitter? It looks like it's been replaced with Flipboard, which seems like a weird choice.

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What...

At least it is an interesting statistic.OK, I've been here long enough to know there are ups and downs (and I know this is a summer weekend). It will probably shake out to a better percentage later. I'm not...
