People find different ways to increase traffic count on their blog site or website. It is inevitable to use social media sites in improving search engine results and increasing Google Page rank. While there are a variety of ways of promoting your blog posts, StumbleUpon has been one key tool in driving blog traffic. Using the StumbleUpon gives your blog site a boost but there are some rules that you must take note of to get positive results.
Rule # 1 Avoid stumbling upon your own content
Although not explicitly stated, it is an implicit rule that you don’t stumble on your own blog because that defeats the purpose. This does not mean that you can never submit your own blog, article or post but it would be to your best advantage for other people to submit your own content. This gives other people an added sense of value if there are other readers or visitors who stumbled upon your content and it would not feel like a self-promotion. Make your content be stumbled by others and not the other way around.
Rule # 2 Submit various quality content from different sources
Researching is one skill that you need to have when you use StumbleUpon. Submitting or stumbling upon diverse websites and blogs with various topics and a range of videos and photos is a positive point. Make sure however that what you stumble upon contains the best and interesting content which is worth sharing to other users. It would be a smart move to also know or identify which topics or blogs are of interest to the majority. By determining what subjects would be popular you can do your research and filter the ones that are useful, unique, fresh, and interesting.
Rule # 3 Make your titles and descriptions attractive and interesting
This might have been repeated so many times in many articles but we cannot overemphasize its importance. Taking time to creating a powerful and an attention-grabbing title and description is a must to entice readers to go through your article and know the worth or value of your content. If people do not find your title impressive enough then your content is doomed because people would not even bother to go through it.
Rule # 4 Build a relationship
You would to make some friends and dedicate some time to know them better. Having a relationship and earning their trust will benefit you at the end. Your presence will easily grow if you have friends around that can help you grow your network and raise your reputation and credibility in the community. There is power among friendship and do not underestimate the relationship among the community as it will give you the edge in achieving your goal.
Rule # 5 Do not make multiple accounts
Having multiple accounts do not really help out establish a reputation. It would be much easier for you to create one identity and only one account. Trust is important and so you must earn it. You would not be able to go far if you do fool users with your multiple identities or accounts. It might also be a cause of your account being suspended and you being banned from the community or social media site which will hurt or damage your profile.
