I get such varied viewing figures from Stumbleupon that change drammatically and can do within hours eg today my viewing figure for 7 days dropped from in the 90s to 0. Just a day ago it was in the hundreds. So how can it go from hundreds to 0? Surely the figure should increase not decrease to nothing?
My totals from the site are excellent but how the figures are reached I cannot understand at all!
If they like what you have submitted - they will click the thumbs up button and you will get more traffic. If they don't like it, they won't and the traffic will die. But I have known it drop off and then come back months later or not as the case may be.....
I find that Stumbleupon is better at getting you a quick bunch of lookie-loos, and not really visitors that spend time on a Hub who interact meaningfully.
I got 206 views to my new hub today from StumbleUpon. I hope it keeps up.
Not very good traffic though because no adsense clicks.
Thanks for your replies, Mark, relache and Shay! I still don't see how you can have hundreds of views in 7 days and then none. Surely if you had the views that number should still be there even if no one is now interested?
It doesn't work like that. Stumble upon decides how many times to show your page based on how popular it is (or how much money you paid them) when a stumbler clicks a "show me a random page" button. The visitor them self made no decision to specifically visit you. If enough of them like it and click the thumbs up button, you get shown to more people with the same interest.
You can see hundreds in a day - then nothing - or thousands - I have had several blogs crash when they arrive in big numbers.
A few hundred visitors means it didn't hit the spot
Marks given some good advice there - I agree.
I find if I stumble new sites myself and use the random stumble function (just for 10 mins a day) it gets me a little more residual traffic.
Thumbs up sites that relate to your interests on your profile if you like them - don't be shy....
then other stumblers have more ways of finding you, your profile and your hubs.
I get hits from my stumble profile doing this also : ) But it's something else to remember to do and when I forget the traffic drops off.
Meet up with other hubbers on the site and use the 'send to friend' function to share more traffic and exposure. Add me if you like : )

I was thinking of joining the stumbleupon website, to see if I could generate some traffic. I stopped there for a few mintues, it really doesn't seem much different than hubpages. It is kind of like Yahoo groups. I was...

One of my hubs recently got a small flurry of hits from stumbleupon.com. Can someone tell me how and why that occurred on that hub -- and not on any other? Are you supposed to be signed up such groups to draw their...

I find I either get almost no traffic from SU, or hundreds of impressions in a day. Anyone know why it works this way?
