    I do a little bit of research and I found that StumbleUpon are safe to AdSense-sponsored websites according to more people.. But not sure about that, and there was rule that came from my mind about the Content guidelines of AdSense program policies which have said:

    Sites with Google ads may not include or link to:

    • Content regarding programs which compensate users for clicking ads or offers, performing searches, surfing websites or reading emails
    But actually this program compensate users for surfing websites. Now how do StumbleUpon become safe from AdSense? Any thought about this?

    I don't really understand your question but if you are asking "Is Stumbleupon Traffic safe for you Adsense wbsite?", then the answer is YES, it is SAFE.

    I take it English is not your first language? You are getting confused with the Guidelines.

    I don't have time or the patience to explain it to you but ask yourself this: If Stumbleupon Traffic wasn't safe, then why would people promote their site there?

    Stumbleupon traffic is the same as facebook or twitter traffic.

    Yes, English wasn't my first language. Did you ever tried to surf using traffic exchange website or Paid-To-Click website? If not then try sometimes and you will feel that you're doing the same thing as on StumbleUpon.

    They are not the same thing at all.

    Stumbleupon is safe. You are not getting any incentive to click any links from Stumbeupon.

    Trust me, Stumbleupon is safe for your site.

    What's your reason why SU isn't like the programs which compensate users for performing searches or surfing websites?

    Because you receive NO COMPENSATION when surfing Stumbleupon!

    I have told you that everything is safe but if you don't believe me then fine, then just don't use it for traffic.
    You will miss out but that is up to you. Also somebody else may put your site on Stumbleupon, then what will you do?

    StumbleUpon is a social sharing website, it is completely safe. I have been using it from a long time and it doesn't lead to any problems.

    Okay, okay.. Thank you for replying, I will consider your answer but still looking for some people's thoughts. You can also submit others site on traffic exchange sites and automated backlink sites.

    Also, thank you! Don't you received a policy violation? I think I'll going to start using SU but if you've receive a violation, please don't forget to warn me.

    For me it looks like when I'm surfing using SU, it feels that when I click the "Stumble" button, I'll just redirected to another webpage and when I click it again, I will still redirected to others, and so on and so forth.
