    Do you find StumbleUpon  useful in getting traffic to your hubs?

    Yes .  Not a lot of traffic, but does have some.

    No, for some reason  I get virtually no traffic from this source, even though I have added quite a lot of tags to my "stumbles". Perhaps not many people have stumbled upon StumbleUpon yet? Can StumbleUpon be "stumbled"?

    I did get some traffic by using StumbleUpon, but it wasn't much.

    However, I have seen some bloggers that get the most amount of traffic via StumbleUpon and Digg (I guess it was Digg, yes).

    So, the bottom line is that it works differently for different people smile Divert your attention to sources that 'you' feel most comfortable with.

    StumbleUpon is useful to attract 'some' traffic to your hubs, but you don't really get much

    Extremely! It does vary based on the content though. My "business and EBay ones seem to d well there. The recipes and more homestyle ones get a boost but not a lot!

    Minimal- stumbleupon seems driven by very unique and attention grabbing content. Content rich in text like the majority of my hubs doesn't seem to have that same effect.

    The real benefit of stumbleupon for many hubbers should be in the backlink they receive from a high PR site. It could help you rise up Google's pages and subsequently provide potential additional search engine traffic if hubbers think long term.

      ...bearing in mind that Google counts only one or two backlinks from any single domain to another domain - so once you've got a couple of links to your sub-domain from Stumbleupon there's no benefit in adding more.

    Somewhat but not for all hubs, depending on the topic. I use other sites for backlinks, especially Tumblr is great for traffic.

    I do get a decent amount of traffic from StumbleUpon, but as others have said, it depends on the topic of the hub. I find that my comedy blog gets a lot more traffic, while RedGage gets more traffic to my Hubs. It also helps to have a presence on StumbleUpon aside from just sharing links to Hubs.

    I submit my article links there. I think the better it fits in a category and more simple the tags are that match best google keyword search tool, the better the traffic. I have faith in the sight.

    I have gotten just a little. You need to get active on the site to get good traffic. I've found my time to be better spent elsewhere. For you, it might be different.

    You cannot add more than 2 or 3 of your articles from the same source (hubpages) to stumble upon or they will be taken down. So no, its not very useful.

    You don't want Stumbleupon traffic. Most Stumblers don't stay long - they'll take a quick glance at your site, decide whether to like it or not, and move on.  If that happens a lot, it's going to crucify your bounce rate and that won't help you with Google.
