one of my hubs got 350+ views from them (over 4-5 days, I think), and it's not my work either - somehow, somewhere, some kind soul - bless him - stumbled upon one of my articles.
Ques is: How do I exploit this further?
I'd already went to my account there and "reviewed" as well as "liked" my own article.
(I am clueless with Stumbleupon, before this, I got something like 2-3 hits from them, and haven't went there for about half a year)
In my experience, SU traffic is just a flash in the pan. You get a bunch of eyeballs for a brief time and then it stops. Stumblers are not known for viewing pages long, nor for being very interactive, so on the whole, most Hub authors I know find the traffic a pleasant moment but not much more than that.
To get traffic from SU, you need a few people to like your links. I submitted a few links of mine to SU, then I saw thousands of people on one of my links and found out that around 5 people(if I remember correctly) have liked my link.
The traffic from SU normally do not convert but your page gets a good amount of exposure.
Thanks for the feedback guys!

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

I understand that HubPages makes a lot of changes, and not ones we always agree with but are for the best, but I don't understand their rationale for getting rid of the link buttons at the buttom of Hubs that Hubbers could use to easily post their Hubs to sites like Digg & StumbleUpon? Why did...

I have linked several of my hubs on Digg, and don't seem to get any traffic from it. Do you? If so, any tips to share?

Does having Facebook and Twitter accounts boost traffic to Hubpages?I'm trying to figure out the best ways of increasing traffic to my hubs. I'm using Digg and Stumbleupon; I've tried Reddit, now I'm wondering if trying Facebook and/or Twitter will do anything.
