StumbleUpon can be a great source of visitors, however, Stumblers can bounce away from your site very fast. See it as zapping with a tv remote, going fast from one channel to the next.
To make Stumblers stay on your site, you have to take a few things into account:
1. Make sure that your webpages are visually appealing. Nobody wants to spend time on a website that is ugly, hard to novigate, or looks very amateuristic. This will make Stumblers zap, off to the next channel.
2. Get yourself a missionstatement, which says loud and clearly what your website is about, and what it is trying to reach. Make sure that your missionstatement is clearly visible on the top of your website.
3. Use images that add to your missionstatement or to the content of your website. If your website is about mortgages, then use images of a house and money. If your website is about cats, then don’t use pictures of mountains, or oceans. Some good places to look for images are Alamy.com, photographersdirect.com, or, in the cheaper section, dreamstime.com or featurepics.com
4. Show what other info can be found on your website. Put a Most Popular, or Most Recent list up, preferably somewhere near the top of the page. Stumblers do not like to have to look for info, they want to find info.
If you take a good look at your website, and try to implement these 5 steps as good as you can, you might be able to add a whole bunch of these Stumblers to your readership!
