    Stumbleupon has kind of a BIPOLAR REPUTATION

    Lots of marketers think that the traffic from this random surfing platform is so untargetted that the huge surge of traffic you CAN get is like a sugar high-nothing substantive.

    A handful of marketers think that this traffic is worth the effort.

    So I tried out SU using an AGED SU account (at least 3 years old)

    I am using a fairly dormant 'general reference' niche site as my guinea pig

    Today's Day 1 of my SU journey and here's the result so far

    I'm using a crowdsourced SU strategy where I have cheap VAs click on the SU "thumbs up" button (for pennies) after randomly viewing/stumbling/thumbing up other items.

    So far, the hits have produced some ADSENSE ad clicks.

    I'm curious to see how scalable this is.

    What was the cost of that traffic spike?

    I'm using a PTC program so my cost so far is 16 cents for the surge. Capped out at 16 cents per day.

    Sadly, it is not sustainable.

    Next experiment: QUORA
