★ Why I don’t like StumbleUpon

This is the followup article to Why I like StumbleUpon. Take a look at this graph, now you’ll see why I don’t like the traffic that StumbleUpon sends through to my blogs.


The Time on Site For All Visitors was looking really decent for I’m With The Band, specially on Monday. Normally we average around the 1:30 – 1:45 mark on I’m With The Band. When any of our articles get Stumbled it drops dramatically, check out Friday and Saturday’s Time on Site.

At this stage there is no evidence that we pick up more subscribers on the days when our articles get Stumbled, so effectively StumbleUpon traffic does nothing for I’m With The Band other that use up our bandwidth.
