I noticed that hubpages offers by default the "share it" option so that the articles written can be submitted to sites as diggs, stumble upon, simpy. I submitted my articles to diggs and stumble upon and almost submitted one to simpy. However, Simpy clearly states that the site cannot be used to attract traffic and it will not allow to post continuos blogs as you publish them. I was wondering why then is simpy listed as an option under the share it tab?
Read the terms and conditions for Digg and Stumbleupon and they also tell you that you're not allowed to use them to attract traffic. The "Share It" option is there so that your readers can bookmark your article, not the author.
In practice, a lot of authors do Digg, Stumble or Simpy their own stuff. If you're going to do it, though, you have to be very careful - make sure your own material is only a very small portion of what you bookmark, because if you're found out, you could be banned.
Acutally, stumble will only allow about a dozen of hubpages be submitted by any 1 user. Once you're capped, someone else who has not reached this cap will need to submit for you. They won't ban you or anything, they just put a stop to the "new discoveries" Hope I did not confuse anybody.
Thanks for the insight. It is so hard to read (and understand) all their terms and conditions, I have posted a few hubs -about four- so I guess the key is not to submit too many?

I've heard that social bookmarking sites like digg, reddit and stumbleupon are a great way to generate a ton of traffic fast. I haven't tried them though... Is it against HubPages rules to do so?
