Posting has been light recently (hectic few weeks) but I’d just like to take a moment and say “hi” to my new StumbleUpon readers. Welcome.
I was looking through my stats and noticed that StumbleUpon has been the biggest source of traffic this month, sending over 8,200 visitors to this blog.
Here are some quick stats of interest:
- SU visitors have over double the page views per visit than most other sources.
- SU traffic is FAR more steady and consistent than del.icio.us/popular, digg, or any of the other high volume / 15-milliseconds-of-fame types of social sites.
I discovered SU about a year ago and it’s a great way to find some of the best things online in any number of categories including amazing artwork and photos, web design resources, etc. SU seems to have a pretty impressive (and growing) user base. I just hope people don’t start gaming and hurting the user experience anytime soon since it’s becoming quite a powerful traffic driver.
That’s it for now. I hope to get back to my regularly scheduled posting soon. Cheers!
