This website will allow you to share websites with others and to help you find other sites that you can add as favorites. It will be easier for you to get people to find your site when you use Stumbleupon. You should use many ideas in mind to help you get your site to draw more traffic through Stumbleupon.

First, you will need to get your site to get into many different communities around the Stumbleupon website. Many people who visit the site can go to different communities that feature sites that they might be interested in. There are many different groups to take a look at. These include such popular groups as the Commerce, Computers and Media sections. In fact, there are more than sixty of these groups for you to get into. You should be sure that you are joining the right groups when getting on Stumbleupon.

Another idea is to become friends with people who have the same interests that you have. This can help you to get more people to see what your site is about and therefore possibly get more traffic to come to your site.

Keeping things active and alive will help you to get more traffic to your site.

You should be sure that you only send your website to other Stumbleupon members if you have not only discovered their sites but have also written reviews of those sites and even consider giving thumbs up ratings to these sites if you want to. This is needed so you will keep from being seen as a spammer who is simply trying to get your name out no matter what you are trying to do.

Finally, you should see that you are going to focus on websites on Stumbleupon that are similar to yours. This will help you to get your site to be more visible and easier to find. Sticking with sites like yours will get people to see that you are very interested in whatever it is that your site is about.

I get a small amount of traffic from SU, but I have not done much else than adding some related friends and bookmarks posts I like. I don't submit pages directly to people, because I find most of the sites submitted to me as spammy. I like to stumble instead. Using groups can be a good idea, I have try it out later.
