Using StumbleUpon for Free Website Traffic

April 16th, 2010

The results are in…

I recently did a poll to find out what most of my readers wanted to know, I gave them the option to vote on what they thought I should write about.

The winner of  the poll was Website Traffic (Free) and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in a close second place.

Poll Results

So, this post is going be about how to generate free website traffic using StumbleUpon, but before I get into that.

Here are some useful links & related posts. I recommend you read them all if you have not done so already.

Using GoDaddy for free traffic

Okay, a little back ground on StumbleUpon.

StumbleUpon is defined as a social bookmarking website, this means is that when you bookmark (add to your favorites) a website it is shared with other stumbleupon users and they also have the option to bookmark the site and give it a thumbs up (a voting system, a bit like digg) with an optional review.

Our objective is to get as many stumbleupon users to see, bookmark and thumbs up your websites content.

I’ve been using this method for about two years now and it always provides some traffic, and occasionally a shed load of traffic. It all depends on what kind of content you have on your website.

Because the site is a social site of sorts the stumble upon users are mostly casual suffers looking for cool, funny & interesting things. If your website offer these types of things it will do very very well from the stumbleupon userbase, but don’t worry if your site is not cool or funny or even interesting.

You will still get visitors from StumbleUpon no matter what your website is about.

On with the method.

1) You need to create an account at

StumbleUpon Login

2) Login into your account at StumbleUpon, you should be greeted with a screen like the one below, this is how some of the stumbled websites are shared with other users.

You can see that the bottom result has 193,000 visits and 93 reviews. I’m sure the person that created that article about Nintendo is very happy and has probably made a nice bit of money from it too.

3) To share your website and it’s content with other stumbleupon users to need to add it to your StumbleUpon Favorites.

Note: You can download the stumbleupon tool bar which makes this process a bit quicker.

Click the favorites tab on the top and then click add site

4) Enter your websites url or the url of the page that you want to share, so it could be.


Yes, you can share your main site url and then your content pages after, but do this over a few days for best results.

After entering your URL, add a short description, brief or introduction to the page your sharing.

Click the “add a site” button.

5) Part 2 of the submission process,

Tick the safe for work radio button and add tags related to you websites / page content.

Then click submit.

(You can see in the picture that StumbleUpon has 9,768,092 users as of 16/04/10)

You should now be able to see the website you wanted to share in your favorites.
