Blogging 101 - StumbleUpon

Let's face it, it can be a minefield getting more traffic to your blog and getting new people to discover all your hardwork, however StumbleUpon can make your life so much easier!


StumbleUpon is a great. You can discover blogs, websites and content about subjects your interested in that you may have never discovered with a Google search and once you've created your account you can add your own content for others to discover!



It's a brilliant way to drive traffic to your site with people who are interested in what you write about. Once you've created an account you can set up your interests. These are subjects such as beauty and fashion so you get content that's relevant to your interests. Unlike other search engines you can like and dislike pages, so you'll pin point exactly what your interested in, clever eh?

So where does blogging come into it?
Well by uploading your new blog posts (which is super easy btw) it gets discovered by people who may not have ever actually found your blog.
It almost guarantees extra traffic to your site too as when you Stumble you have no idea what page is going to appear, so you don't know if you like it or not until it's loaded.


StumbleUpon works best when you use it regularly. I upload new pages every other day it literally takes 30 seconds and then like or dislike 5-10 pages a day. By doing so, I know my content is getting found and I am affecting my search results as I'll get less of the stuff I don't want to see and more of the stuff I do.

I've found as a Blogger this really does make a difference for me. I'm not saying I get thousands of hits a day because of it but even an extra 5 views a day is still an extra 5 views a day.

It's a really good, simple and super quick tool that might just help if you are a blogger who cares about numbers or you'd just like to discover some content you may have never clicked on.

Have you tried StumbleUpon before?

Until next time,

  1. I actually discovered the whole world of blogging via StumbleUpon (I stumbled upon Sofia's Journal) but it never occurred to me to use it for myself. I'll definitely have to check it out since it obviously worked so well for me as a reader.

  4. I've never seen any other bloggers talk about StumbleUpon before! I've been using it from the word go but I'm not as active on it as I could be, I need to step it up a bit. I add all my new posts though and if I comment on a blog I'll usually pin it/stumble it too xo
