Take StumbleUpon seriously. It can bring you serious traffic.

A few days ago I wrote a post about protecting your WordPress site. It was, in my opinion, an average post. Well, someone out there must have thought it was something spectacular, because since then every few days the traffic to this blog spikes like crazy thanks to StumbleUpon! I’ve never seen anything like it before.

I still don’t get how StumbleUpon works. I mean, I know that you can “Stumble” pages on the web. But then what? Why is that particular post so popular? How are people finding it in StumbleUpon? Can I find out who Stumbled it and when? And why does the traffic spike every few days – what happens on those days that causes the spikes?

It’s all a mystery to me. But in the meantime I do understand one thing – StumbleUpon can be a serious source of traffic!
