I recently joined stumbleupon, and it is the most confusing community group I have ever seen. I don't get how it works.
It won't let me post to the forums, saying I am too new, and when I tried to update my tags, it deleted them all, and now I
have no tags for any of my hubs, and it will not let me add new ones. I'm thinking I will probably just let that one die.
I aslo joined Redgage which is a lot better, and already made 2 cents! Also, as a warning to people. While I was at stumbleupon I clicked on the music category, and my computer sent up all kinds of red flags.
Danger will robinson! Warning! Warning!
I am a bit confused by Stumbleupon myself. I don't go there much.
When it first came out it was not a social bookmarking tool, you just flagged websites with a positive or negative, and whenever you got bored you pressed stumble to be sent all over the internet one random site at a time.
A few years back you could find some really interesting things with it, alas now spam has taken over and it sends you to sales pitch after sales pitch
Stumble Upon, along with most social bookmarking tools are next to useless, poor conversion traffic, no-follow links andsimilar. Their only real positive in my opinion is that they can lead to natural, high value, backlinks, if someone on the social bookmarking circuit likes your site and links to it from their own.
I get a bit of traffic from StumbleUpon. I also like the site because when I stumble along, I get ideas. You can find some really unique stuff there.

I had been uploading my hubs to StumbleUpon until the past week or so when it would no longer work - I would be taken to the site, fill everything out, press click - then it would vanish and nothing showed up on my personal page there.Sooo... I emailed StumbleUpon and asked them what was up. ...

How many social bookmarking sites do you use to draw traffic to your hubs?What sites do you use to promote your hubs and which of them draw the best traffic?

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.

I was getting quite a bit of traffic from Stumbleupon, but the last while I notice it hasn't been accepting my submissions from Hubpages. They say that it's to prevent people from abusing the sytem and just promoting one site all the time. Does anybody know of a way around this?

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?
