I am still sober and nothing’s wrong, really. My headline just sort of popped out, but at the same time, it’s meant to make you curious about the Internet marketing tool I am testing right now.
I bet you have heard of it, and I bet you might have tried it as well. I have tried it for quite some time, and I have received a lot of traffic from it as well, but at the same time, I have had my ups and downs. Right now, I am not receiving hardly any traffic at all from…
StumbleUpon (if you are already using SU, you are welcome to add me as your friend)
Yes, the famous web 2.0 site, where you vote / stumble the websites of other members and their favorite websites/posts, and you interact with other members as well. It’s a freakin cool tool that can bring you awesome traffic. You just need to know how to use it.
I didn’t know how to use it, I was more or less stumblin’ my own posts, and that didn’t work for long. You need to know that there is a ratio, somewhere deep inside StumbleUpon. You need to stumble a lot more websites owned by other people than the number of times you stumble your own website(s).
I have no idea about the actual ratio, I didn’t count. And I have read so many different numbers, so I am not going to guess.
Right now, I am just receiving a blank page everytime I try to stumble my own posts. I have read somewhere that my lack of knowledge can even hurt my traffic from StumbleUpon when my visitors stumble my blogposts.
Too bad, but I am happy anyway, because I read somewhere that it’s not permanent.
And as soon as Caroline Middlebrook will release her StumbleRush, the very interesting course about how to use StumbleUpon (it’s completely free), I hope that it will be the last time I ever see my blank page at StumbleUpon and that I will be back with high traffic again.
