Two Thumbs Up! How to Use StumbleUpon to Send Massive Traffic to Your Website

Published by Daniel Theiler — 9-27-2017 at 1:10 PM UTC

StumbleUpon is similar to social bookmarking sites whose presence has been so ubiquitous in the internet for the past few years.  StumbleUpon has been the method of choice for many site visitors to rate a website and give it an approval technique that's been tried and tested for centuries ñ the thumbs up and the thumbs down.  However, it has also become a means with which website owners promote content from their sites and in the process, give their site the much needed boost.  This makes StumbleUpon an important resource for many website owners.

How does StumbleUpon work?

StumbleUpon is based on a very simple and basic concept actually.  Remember those times when you came across a really great thing and you told people about it?  You always said, 'You know this really great power drill I stumbled upon in a garage sale?  It works great!'  And then you go on to talk about its amazing features.  StumbleUpon is like that ñ you find a great thing and spread the news.

Anyone who uses StumbleUpon does not need to make a listing of all the best and most popular write-ups they find.  Instead, they give a story the Thumbs Up for approval and the Thumbs Down for rejection.  

Using this method, visitors can tell other people what they think about an article, in plain black and white.  StumbleUpon also allows visitors to view only those sites that they find relevant, depending on what they prefer.  

Web traffic from StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon does not produce a surge of traffic like Digg and  With these two bookmarking sites, a really great story can earn thousands of visits or hits in just a short span of time.  With StumbleUpon, you'll probably get traffic in the hundreds, only it gets sent your way more consistently, not in surges.  

Donít let the numbers fool you, though.  Although relatively small, they can be quite significant, particularly because they can extend for a longer period of time.

How can StumbleUpon work for you?

StumbleUpon is a community, more than anything.  So whatever it is you do, you'll find others who do a similar thing.  It's like one happy village, with users who have similar interests and goals.  

To use StumbleUpon, you need to be involved actively in this community.  Participate in the website ratings by reading stories and giving them a Thumbs Up or a Thumbs Down.  When your turn comes, you simply have to download the toolbar, submit your web pages to the site and allow others to start viewing and rating it.

Once you have submitted your web page to StumbleUpon, you only have to choose a category for it, write a description for your site and tag it using keywords.  It will then be included in a database.  

What's great about StumbleUpon is that users donít need to use a search engine in order to look for specific topics or subjects.  By tagging an interest and channel surfing, they will be directed to sites that are related to their preferences.  They can then share their preferences to others.

About Daniel Theiler


So, who is Daniel Theiler? That's me ! I am just a guy that is fascinated with technology. And I have a flair for making it work for people. I have been fascinated about technology since I played my first game on the Commodore 64 Computer. Fast forward around 32 years later and here I am. I have worked in companies large and small and also with individual entrepreneurs to help them do tasks better and faster. I help people to earn more money in their businesses. Many times i can help them, to bring in some sort of automation and recurring earnings into their overall strategy. The main focus in my professional daily life has always been to make things easier by automating and simplifying them. I often help people find the missing piece in their venture to generate more revenue on the net. The returns speaks for themselves. I work from home, at my convenience and get to enjoy time with my Son and my Spouse, doing things I prefer to do. Schedule my Day on my own terms. Most of my income now results from Affiliate Marketing and smart Investments in the Forex and Crypto Currency Market. Most of them on Autopilot. Often, persons ask me for advice in their marketing journey or they ask for teaching them something One-on-One. Sometimes they're just stuck on a problem in their business and need to have a push in the right direction. Well, that's one of the things I do. That's only an example of what value means to me. Is it not great if you can rely on someone, the moment your problem or question comes up!? I focus on providing value and helping people. That's how I see life and business, generally. Like one of my favorite Quote of Zig Ziglar says: „You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.“ I work a few hours each day and usually don't work Friday through Monday. This time is usually reserved for my Family. Of course, not a Rule without an Exception. I simply enjoy my life and in my opinion every single Person on this Planet deserves to also have an enjoyable Life. I really hope the past couple pages have delivered you a good idea of who I am. I would love to connect with you. Sincerely, Daniel Theiler Like to know more about me and what i am doing, then feel free to go to my Website:
