Use #StumbleUpon to find new articles and increase #blog traffic

StumbleUpon tells you how popular their recommended articles are.

Recently, I have been writing about how bloggers can use StumbleUpon to drive traffic to their blogs even though WordPress discontinued its StumbleUpon sharing button:

9 Proven Ways to Skyrocket Your Traffic

How to Make Blog Traffic Skyrocket with StumbleUpon

and 5 Smart Things You Can Do to Be a Better Blog Promoter

What if I told you that Fiction Writer Sue Coletta discovered a way to put the button back?

Yes, it’s true. WordPress.com users can once again have a StumbleUpon sharing button if they follow Sue’s instructions, and the instructions in those of her commenters.

Sue begins her post with the importance of StumbleUpon as a way to get traffic to your blog and ends with how to get the StumbleUpon sharing button back.

For WordPress.com users who would like to have the StumbleUpon sharing button back on their site, here are the instructions. Theyy are at the bottom of the post:

    Hi Janice,
    I took your advice yesterday and added StumbleUpon to my blog’s share buttons. I also shared my latest post and guess what?
    I woke up to 12 new email subscribers! I have never had that many in one day.
    Thank you so much for sharing such a great tip and easy to implement tweak to my blog!

    It worked. I just left Sue’s blog thanking her. I want to thank you also since I was able to find her through your reblog, Janice. I hope you enjoy your weekend! 🙂

      My pleasure Esme. I am happy I could help! When I was at WP.com I manually installed it too.
      I apologize for calling you “Ingrid”. You and I have written each other before, and I should have known.

        Janice, no problem dear – I am just happy that I eventually managed to get this installed and its now visible on my blog.
        I will keep you posted on how things turn out. Thanks again.
