    I logged onto analytic's yesterday, I got 2,000 views from stumbleupon!!

    when I go to see were this traffic is coming from I get this:

    Your page is on StumbleUpon

    One of our members added your page to the Unknown topic on StumbleUpon.
    Each time our members who are interested in Unknown "stumble upon" your page using our toolbar, it will record an entry on your referral logs.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Unknown, why unknown??
    How did this happen?
    Has any one else had this happen to them?
    Is there anything I can do to keep this up?
    how long does last?


    this is just so weird I have barely been promoting to stumbleupon.

    Basically it means someone thought that your content was interesting... So they submitted it to stumbleupon, the page then gets showed to other people who can vote if they like it pumping more traffic to your website.

    What you need to do now is to submit more of your pages to stumbleupon...

    can you "stumble your own post" for more traffic?

    You need to understand SU. If u have SU toolbar you can see stumble button. When you hit that button SU sends you to one of the sites that is submited to SU. You can submit your own site. Its best to get some friends and to change votes (I'm doing this for a year now). More votes = more traffic. If your page become popular on SU you will also get some traffic (1k-2k) from time to time.

    could you use multiple accounts to stumble the same site? I think SU woudl easily catch IP's if you were doing this and blacklist your website

    I posted to Digg, and someone else stumbled from there. I thought the big traffic would come from Digg or Reddit, but nope, it was SU.

    I think you will not get much traffic because if you have old account with only one vote u can get traffic, but if the account is new,its really hard. Its much easier if you add some friends (they are not like on digg,on SU is much easier to be mutal with them).

    Yes, like on digg. But with SU you can get steady traffic if u have good posts. There's also trick with reviews. If u have more reviews of your page you will get more traffic
