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.
"StumbleUpon is a social media platform which can be an excellent way to drive traffic to your website. In fact, most bloggers use it for generating traffic for their blogs. StumbleUpon can be a terrific tool to find content your audience may like as well. You can then share that content on your social profiles or blog.
But before jumping into it directly, you should follow a couple of rules if you want to use it for generating traffic to your website.
• Don’t ""stumble"" your own content exclusively. If you do, the platform will eventually ignore you. A great way to make it look more natural is to keep mixing it up. For each page of your own that you stumble, try to stumble 10-15 pages from other sites.
• Use it regularly. To help StumbleUpon understand your likes and dislikes, use it regularly. Try to do a little ""stumbling"" daily, or at least once a week. That will help the platform share the more relevant content to you, as well as to the other users.

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 readers?

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

I don't know if you have used this app before, but I believe it's worth a shot.Just 2 days ago I witnessed a sudden increase in views in one of my Hubs. I mean, hundreds of views, almost a thousand at this point. When I took a look at the traffic source, I saw it was Stumbleupon that made...

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 just wondering if anyone has had any luck with it. Or if it is worth the effort.

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

StumbleUpon seems to work. Just a note.
