Stumble across the Web and Boost your Traffic!

StumbleUpon and Video.StumbleUpon are two services which can become quite addictive because they are just so darn helpful. The "Thumbs Up" or "Thumbs Down" method of voting is as simple as it gets! Stumble across interesting new websites related to what your "tastes" seems to be and help others discover sites you believe are cool as well.

Reasons to start Stumbling :

  • Registration is Free and a toolbar for IE or Extension for Firefox is all you need to get started!
  • Post Stories from your Blog feature allows you to benefit from new traffic! If you're using any type of analytical tool i.e. Feedburner stats, ROISpy, Google Analytics or simply checking out your stats on MyBlogLog, you'll notice the boost in traffic your site receives from this feature!
  • You're sure to find an abundance of sites that are interesting and related to sites you are already digging!
  • Connect with others via websites, "network option", "matches" or get to know others via the forum!

Overall I like the idea of StumbleUpon- at times the voting system doesn't "read" your vote so I find I have to double check or triple check to see if my thumbs up/down was accepted. I have at times given up and haven't been able to participate as much as I'd like with the voting aspect of this service. A big plus for StumbleUpon is the new traffic I see coming into my site! The boost is apparent from day one! So stumbling onto a new method of driving traffic towards your site is always a good thing. From this point of view I highly recommend StumbleUpons option to integrate their service with your blog!

Thumbs up for Integration - Check it out today!
