    These days I'm getting a lot more traffic from StumbleUpon compared to Google.  StumbleUpon was really big in 2011 and surpassed Facebook.  It's not that big anymore but it's still the #3 social network.  I think it would be cool to form a StumbleUpon HubPages pact to help keep the stumbles rolling in.  If a bunch of us got together we could like each other's HubPages in StumbleUpon it would definitely drive traffic to all our pages.  If you're interested in joining in on this mighty alliance, let me know and I'll add you on StumbleUpon.  Here's my profile: http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/mer … ices/likes

      Can you tell me a little more about Stumbleupon?  I'm learning the different sites and had never heard of this.  Can I post my hubs on here?  Is there a payout?  I'm only asking because the site doesn't really say much.

      Thanks.

        Sarra, The site doesn't pay as far as I know, but it is a way to get another link to your hubs. You get followers there and they view your hubs they are interested in.

      So I read (or tried to read) most of that contract yesterday... was your worry the privacy issues or was there something else? They don't own your work, but they can use it? I can't remember now... what were your concerns?

        The fact that working together to push a certain site can basically get that site blacklisted.

          Im not sure what the op was suggesting... did he mean for us to join and then recommend one anothers hubs? And if that is what he meant, you're saying HP's could be blacklisted from stumbleupon?

        After you stumble the same subdomain more than a few times they will block you from being able to do so and possibly close your account.  This is the typical end result of reciprocal stumbling groups.
