    I have come to study something about Stumbleupon.com people help each other to promote thier article by liking and commenting, i think if we fellow hubbers could work as a team and promote each others stuff, on there we could also make thousands of views per day! What's do you think?

    That's a very nice Idea, Ade. Perhaps we should use the response to this post to find out who is interested!

    You do realize that conspiring to promote each other's work is against Adsense TOS, Stumbleupon's TOS and probably HubPages TOS as well?

      I think it becomes legal if we decide to adopt co-operation rather than conspiration.

        No it doesn't!  All bookmarking sites are intended as places where you recommend great sites that you admire - not places to promote your mate's stuff just because he's agreed to do the same for you.  We all know that it goes on all the time, but it's still gaming the system.

        There are some people who feel collaborating to create artificial links is unethical, and others who feel it's just part of being an internet entrepreneur. Whichever side of the fence you sit, you just need to be aware that it's not strictly "legal", and if you get caught you can get yourself banned from some sites and even lose your Adsense account.  So if you're going to do that kind of thing, arrange it in private - not on a public forum.

    I already stumble other hubbers hubs if I have enjoyed them, and follow people who's work I admire. I think that you can organically grow yourself a group, without risking violating the TOS, as Marisa has said, and being booted off.

    @marisa Wright: i have checked the stumbleUpon TOS and did not find it there that i cant recommend my links to friends, mate and family, and to me this is more of a co-operation to develop the interest we all share than any form of conspiration, It just depends on which your personal stake on this, but it would be ok, tp promoted each others work as a team over there, let me ask you this, "Have you ever link other people hubs that relate to your hub before?" in as much as we are allowed to do that, and it is not a brigde of TOS, i dont think it is forbidden.
    @CMHypno It's nice of you to do that stubling other hubbers hub.
    @James agbogun, i think if we all work together as a team we can achieve the imporssible and make things happen.
    @monsa. thanks for buying IN

      Well the share button is there to share hubs that you have enjoyed with the world of the web, not just to get your own stuff out there. If all hubbers exercised their fingers more on hubs they have enjoyed, hubbers would get more exposure for their work. smile

    That's a really good idea. I have StumbleUpon but I'm still not sure how to use it to its full potential! I will learn and I think this could work out well!

    @bethanRose, thanks for seeing it from the bright side! @CMhypno, believe me we are driving at the same point, the goal is to promote our work, right? why not give it a shot, i think we are masking self doubt with comtempt, when we cant try something new, and the fact is that this thing is not new NO! tons of people are doing it out there and it's really working for them.

      I don't think that we are driving it from the same point.  Grow your stumbleupon account organically, by making friends with hubbers and other poster on there if, and only if, the stuff they post is of interest to you.  Just like here, build up a wide and interesting portfolio, including your own links, and friends will follow

    I have used Stumbleupon for several years and have a great many friends on the site, with whom I share pages of genuine mutual interest. I do very well out of using the site as it was intended, though surprisingly not all that well with Hubs. Experience has taught me that for some reason, short, text-only articles and individual photographs or collections of photographs do infinitely better than works the size of Hubs.

    I think your idea is excellent in theory, adeaugustus, and totally understand your objective. I am afraid, however, that I agree absolutely with Marisa and that tactics like this would do only considerable harm in the medium to long term, not only to individuals but very possibly to Hub Pages as a collective.

      Thanks for your insightful comment.

    You will be banned from posting on Stumbleupon if most of your likes come from the same site. Eventually no links from HubPages will be accepted. It has happened before with other sites. At one time I was blocked from posting any of my hubs for a while.

      I was suspended from Twitter, probably for reasons of tweeting too many of my hubs, plus some people were posting "teeth whitening" spam on my account. How that happened, i don't know.
      However, i contacted twitter about this, but no response from them, till today.

      But back to Stumbleupon, as Marisa said, do things like that in private if you absolutely have to, but not on the forums. You can contact interested parties through their PM.

      It's much better to be safe than to be sorry. Google can be mean sometimes, so its good to tread carefully with such.
