    Hey guys .. I created a stumbleupon account awhile ago dident bother much with it until yesterday where I made a couple friends and also stumbled a few websites ..after I got 20 friends I signed up for Stumbleudon and then this happened

    [​IMG]

    I was wondering is this something normal ? I can see in awstats I have more than 2000 links from Stumbleupon which is to be expected since the avatar I chose is a cute girl ... but I mean ... form 50 to more than 900 in one day ?

    I unfortunately cannot see if these are crap hits or real hits as my landing page is an under construction page that can be accessed with invites only. I guess my question is, Should I expect this kind of traffic from now on, and if so does Stumbleudon traffic have a decent conversion rate ?

    Please pardon my n00bness regarding this however I am still in shock since my traffic has increased by almost 2000% in one day and felt sharing this with you guys thinking Id get some feedback. Thx :)

    good job man, maybe your pic was so good, I can only reach average 100 visit when I use stumbleupon and I didn't have any friend in my account

    man, I have seen some crazy stuff with stumble upon. It is always a spike like that and then a slow trickle after that, (if they don't have somewhere else to click, like another pic)

    That's the magic of StumbleUpon The bad part is it will go back down.

    as expected the traffic went back down to 100-150 ... still a nice boost for a page with no content at all hehe

    Stumbleupon traffic is all crap... very high bounce rate.

    Yup SU is very hard to convert and keep on your page. You will be hard pushed to keep this rate of visitors up as well. I would advise stick some image or video ads on there ASAP and try to rinse the traffic while it is there. You are more likely to monetise this traffic with PPC image and video ads.

    Good luck keeping the traffic, stranger things have happened.
