    I submited one of my website to stumbleupon 3 months ago just for a test, since then i have been getting over 2k visitors a day. The visitors on SU are crap, they don't stay long enough on the site, no conversion. Am tired of getting traffic from SU as it;s skewing my visitors datas.

    The question here is, Is there a way to stop this traffic?

    google htaccess block by referrer - you should be able to find the referrer stumbleupon uses from your data and use htaccess to block visitors with that referrer.

    dont be foolish. Redirect those visitors to a landing page that forces them to fill a survey or something. 2k hits a day can be turned into a profit. They are real people just think like them for a second and make a special page just for them.

    Yes, as advised above, come up with ways to benefit from such a traffic.

    BotCoder is absolutely right. Since they are real visitors just figure out how to capitalize on them.
