Add Your Pages to Stumbleupon

Wikimotive StumbleuponStumbleupon is one of the most interesting social media sites around, and by interesting, I mean it is a complete and total time-sink. Essentially, it’s a toolbar that has a “Stumble” button you can press that will bring you to a random page on the web based on your interests. You can also upvote and downvote pages, which is how Stumbleupon gets better at finding stuff that you’ll like. If something isn’t already ON Stumbleupon when you vote on it, you’ll be given the option to add it. This is what I’d like to talk about today, as it can be a great little social media addition for Business SEO.

The Path to Posting the Perfect Pic (and possibly going viral)

Perfect Pic

For most people and most pictures, sharing it on Facebook or Twitter is enough. It may be a quick snapshot of you and your friends out on the town or a cool sunset from a mountaintop and sharing it with our friends and family is enough.

After Diligent Testing, We Approve of StumbleUpon’s Explore Box

StumbleUpon Explore Box

It was an odd thing, really. A couple of weeks ago, StumbleUpon released a feature that we didn’t know they didn’t have. We didn’t really want it, but we tried it because, well, trying things on social media sites is what we do.

After thorough testing, we give 2 thumbs up to the StumbleUpon Explore Box.

When I say that we “didn’t know they didn’t have” it, I mean that one of the editors and I both thought there was a way to Stumble through different subjects that weren’t part of categories. Call me dumb, but I assumed that it was a feature that I simply never explored. You see, I enjoy StumbleUpon as a blind discovery tool. I have my interests set properly and after hundreds of thousands of pages Stumbled, the recommendation engine knows me well.

For two weeks, I’ve done very little Stumbling with anything other than the Explore Box.
