How are you folks doing with referrals from Stumbleupon?
I ask because I received few referrals from them until the last few days. Sixteen percent of my traffic today is from Stumbleupon.
The traffic is nice to see. Wondering if others see spikes and if the traffic has any staying power.
I joined but have never bothered with it, because all the advice I got was that the traffic spikes are nice, but Stumbleupon traffic converts extremely poorly. Stumblers don't click on ads.
I tried posting several hubs there but didn't see much from it so eventually I let it go. I don't think I've profitized my hubs effectively enough, I believe that's the problem, generally speaking, with my lower traffic.
reddit has given me a lot more traffic than stumble.
Thanks, I think I'll look into that again. When I did before, I found I was starting too many hares at once...digg, hubpages, tweeter, facebook, stumbleupon, and reddit. I just couldn't keep up.
Does it convert, though?
Some of it does, but only through the backlinks to hubpages, so it's a VERY small amount.
Hello Marisa. How does one know from where a "covert" comes from? I assume from GA, but how would I find that info...for conversion?
I haven't even thought about Stumbleupon for months...
I put a handful of hubs there last fall. Haven't heard a peep for a few months.
But, I got some traffic from there just today. What's up with that.
I stopped using it because I found that I was only putting my own stuff up there. I wasn't real interested in using it for anything else.
I was hearing that people were getting banned for spamming because they were doing just that - only posting their own links.
I've been using RedGage a little - it's giving me more traffic than stumbleupon did before I stopped using it.
RedGage is pretty fun too. I've met some cool people - even hubbers that I had not met here.
The only thing Stumbleupon serves is the ability for your readers to stumble you and this means absolute minimal and short bursts of traffic that don't amount to much!!
Here's my opinion, but then I am a relative newbie so what do I know?
Stumbleupon does occasionally convert to traffic, but not so much, and no clicks.
Reddit once quadrupled my normal daily traffic (and on just one link) but no-one clicked. And the traffic only lasted one day.
Digg banned me once I discovered how to use the share button at the bottom of the hub page. Got round it by simply creating a new email address, so that's no longer an issue. When I publish now I use the share button and I don't publish that often, so no chance of 'spamming' their site.
I'm still looking for that magic link site that gets me tons of traffic and/or clicks.
I've posted to shetoldme (next to nothing), tipdrop (a little but next to nothing)redgage (same, but at least they pay you for people looking)shesaytoo or whatever its name is (practically nothing, xomba ( a little but next to nothing).Snipsley - same.
My best traffic comes from the search engines - google/yahoo. Just went to check and found a huge amount of traffic has arrived recently from........stumbleupon!
Spooky is the right word!
None of my hubs have been hit much, and I'm not going throught them all one by one to see where all the hits landed!
I'm assuming they were shared.
or its a glitch making me look as if I had hits I didn't really have!
Backlinking is a really time consuming process, but it should be done with different keyword variations everytime you backlink a hubpage or webpage, so that it appears to the search engines and also human visitors that what they are about to click on is new and original....some people will click in and then immediately click out, but hopefully that's an adsense click that converts well.
If that's the case, THANKYOU THAT PERSON!!
There is no clicks, but hey viewers make me feel good
The link itself should always be your targeted keywords, at least htats what I have found works best!
StumbleUpon is invading.
I'm getting views on every hub I've ever submitted there, included one that has not had a single view in over a month.
Same thing here, I don't understand it either but Its o.k with me
I wish I had the energy or interest for backlinking and stuff. I've tried. I just can't make myself do it. It's dumb, I know, but, I just can't. I'd rather write and I have no discipline for that stuff.
I have not noticed traffic from stumble but then again I don't post there. I have had comments saying that user has posted there tho and I gotta say that just tickles me pink! I think thats just a huge massive compliment and always makes my day
I have linked other peoples hubs at shetoldme but didn't think to say so, maybe next time I shall just so I can make their day!

So I've been on Medium for a year and Hubpages for six years (my second time). I've come to the conclusion that they can benefit each other.I have twice now earned quite a bit more on hubpages as a result of an article on Medium. A few days ago, I posted a link to one one of my hubpage articles,...

I receive practically no traffic from these bookmarking sites, and Pinterest isn't much better. Learnist however generates loads of traffic.

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?

Can Redgage be a good source of "Useful" Traffic?

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?
