Stumble Upon lets you, simply by clicking a “Stumble” button in their toolbar, surf random sites by topic, recommended by your friends who ‘tag’ their favorite sites.
The latter makes StumbleUpon a social bookmark site.

When you Stumble, you will only see pages recommended by friends and like-minded stumblers. Thus you can find great content quite different from using search engines.

Using Stumble Upon can deliver a great deal of web traffic, provided you use this site well.
Therefore I’ve listed 8 traffic tactics below.

  1. Make sure your website is up to par. Since people will be “stumbling upon” your site, you want to make sure it looks good as soon as they click on the link.
  2. Just like Twitter, StumbleUpon is a social networking website, so be sure to get as many contacts and networking friends as possible.
  3. Complete your profile as thoroughly as possible before linking. This way, when people click on your information, they get an idea of who you are or who your business is.
  4. Make sure you comment on other peoples’ pages and review them as well. This shows you’re an active user who cares about what others are saying.
  5. Tag the most essential elements. Stumble Upon uses tags, which are a lot like keywords. Be sure to tag your site using the most effective, power packing tags possible. Try to pick nouns and use ones that will pique peoples’ interest immediately. While you must use one topic on the site, you can use multiple tags and change them up as needed.
  6. Decide right away that you’re going to be an important part of the Stumble Upon web community, and then stick with it. Feeble posters or people who are fly by night are easy to detect, and most people will stay away from that.
  7. Think about your target audience. Then, create customized content just for them. By putting information out there that caters to your audience and your customer base, you will get solid followers who should turn into sales or referrals.
  8. Make sure the people who stumble end up being regular visitors or customers. You can do this by adding an RSS button at the bottom of our page, an email subscription link, or any other method that will bring interested people in even closer.

    I agree with Gil. The traffic from stumble upon is great but it has very low conversion rates as they are not looking for anything specific. If you have a neat product or service, then you might get an impulse buy, but most of the traffic will be useless.

    The biggest rushes of traffic I have had to any of my lenses have been from stumbleupon! affiliates just have to be careful not to submit the sites yourself. Too many from one url can lock you out.

    I started using SU years ago, maybe it has changed.
    But I had a lot of success AFTER submitting new sites to SU as the first reviewer. As soon as I detected a brandnew blog post, I submitted it to SU and I think that earned me a lot of points and thus traffic.
