How to get more Followers / Subscribers on StumbleUpon?

Looking for a way to get more Followers to your StumbleUpon favorites?

For those who are not familiar with StumbleUpon, it is a social sharing website. You can add your favorite websites to your Stumbleupon page. You can also share your favorite websites with your StumbleUpon Subscribers (Followers). This hub is written to help all those stumblers gain more followers or also known as subscribers. The more subscribers that you receive, the more exposure and views your articles, websites and blogs will also receive.

If you don't have a stumbleupon account, you should consider signing up and sharing your favorite websites with other stumblers. Remember to make the most of stumbleupon by installing the stumbleupon toolbar. With the stumbleupon toolbar, you will be able to share your favorite websites easier with not only stumbleupon users by also with twitter and Facebook users.

The first thing to do to get more subscribers to stumbleupon is to write a welcoming greeting on your stumbleupon profile. When visitors view your profile, you will want them to like your greeting and feel comfortable. When your viewers feel comfortable, they will then like to view your favorite websites that you have linked on your Stumbleupon profile page. Getting subscribers to your favorites is like a chain reaction. Once they like your favorite websites and profile message, they are more likely to subscribe to you. They will then get updates on the next website, article or blog page that you add to your favorites on stumbleupon. You can add favorite websites by clicking the thumbs up button ("I like it") on the Stumbleupon toolbar.

To get more followers to stumbleupon, you will need to add interesting and/or quality websites to your favorites. Nobody wants to view money grabbing or boring websites. Hit the "stumble" button on the stumbleupon tool bar to view other interesting, funny or helpful websites. There is a category section that will allow you to get updates on your favorite topics. Choose the categories that interest you on stumbleupon because other stumblers (stumbleupon users) will see that you have the same interests and they will view your profile page, and will most likely subscribe to your favorites.

Subscribe to other people on stumbleupon to show them that you like their profile and their choice of websites. In return many stumblers will subscribe to your favorites and become your follower. Within your stumbleupon account, you will also see the number of daily visitors that come to your profile page. Click on the visitors link and see who has enjoyed your stumbleupon sites. You can then pick and choose the stumblers that you would like to follow and subscribe to.

Stumbleupon subscribers are similar to fans or followers you may or may not have on your blogs or websites. The more subscribers, fans or followers you may have, the more views you will have to your articles. If you are a person looking for more article views and traffic to your websites, you may like my article on getting more views to your articles.

Once you have received a few stumbleupon subscribers, you should send them direct messages telling them Thank-you for subscribing to you. You then need to keep finding fun and interesting articles to share with your new subscribers (fans). You can also take some time to view other stumblers that your subscribers have subscribed to and also add them to your favorites on stumbleupon.
