I am going to share my personal experience regarding stumbleupon with my readers and one thing I realize after using stumbleupon, that you must show patience in every aspect either you are going to develop a social media network or to derive traffic from various web resources towards your own domain.
Lets talk about stumbleupon, SU is something very valuable especially for bloggers to get viral and quality traffic towards their blogs and one thing I noticed that a number of bloggers are very impatient deriving traffic and use illegal ways. Here are the top ten highly impressive and valuable tips that I uses in stumbleupon to get a considerable number of visitors daily.
1. The Stumbleupon Toolbar Is The Right Tool For Yor
Remember one thing, the power is in your thumb do stumbling on a regular basis and keep thumbing up the content and pages you like and don’t hesitate to thumb down the pages you don’t like. Keeping yourself focused to a single category is not necessary, you can stumble as much categories as you like.
2. Make Your Public Profile More Atrractive! Do Photoblogging
The ultimate source for spreading your pages are definitely your mutual followers, the more you have the followers the more exposure you will receive towards your pages.
3. How To Get More And More Followers
Now this is something very serious when talking about your stumbleupon community, your followers where thay came from and why should they follow you. More then 60 percent stumblers follow you only if you have an attractive profile with photoblogging and you have a considerable and reasonable number of favorites.
Another cool trick to get 20 to 25 followers per day is to open account of any of a high profile stumbler with more then 10K favorites and quite impressive number of followers and following. Now click his following and you will see a page like the one you are watching below.
Next step is to open each user profile you are watching in the above figure by right clicking on it and opening in a new tab. For example you open profiles of at-least 20 stumblers, then just follow at-least 5 stumblers which suits you according to your interests and leave the rest 15 stumblers. Now what actually happens that you appear as a visitor to all the 20 stumblers in their profile bar look in the figure below.
This means that each of the stumbler profile you visit must visit you back when he will see you as a visitor in his profile bar, thus getting more chances to be followed.
Another way to be followed by someone you follow is to send him a message in his in-box, but don’t send message to more then 5 to 6 stumblers per day otherwise you will be marked as spammer by the SU systems and will be blocked after sometime. Remember you can follow maximum 25 stumblers per day as it’s a limit by SU.
4. Sharing And Discovering Content With Stumblers
This is the most important part as SU admin has a sharp eye on it’s stumblers, don’t share your content too much and don’t even only discover your own pages. Try to discover as much different and unique pages as you can and even if you are a blogger and want to share your own pages then dont share more then 2 pages per day otherwise your account will be at risk. Don’t send messages like ”please thumb it up” or ”share with your friends” because these messages often irritate users, in-fact it’s upon their will either they share or thumb up your stuff or not.
5. Reviewing The Shares Of Your Fellow Stumblers
Review a share that you get from your stumbleupon toolbar is also a good way to get attention of your fellow stumblers, also you can review the photoblogged pages of other stumblers who are not your friends. Once you give your review on the post of a stumbler, it will appear as a message in his in-box and surely he will respond to you in a positive manner.
After you have reached a considerable public profile figures, here is another tip to get more followers i.e just share your public profile page with your friends through the toolbar and ask them to share your profile page with their friends, thus getting more and more followers ultimately. Keep one thing in mind more followers means more exposure to your pages and which in turns provide more traffic to your blog.
To review someone’s page just go to his public profile scroll down and look for the image you like and right click on the image and click stumbleupon photoblog.
