Do you think that working for free for an eBay company will get you more visitors? Think twice. More friends and more stumbling around mean less traffic from StumbleUpon. So stop wasting your time as SU does not honor it, the contrary is the case. Concentrate on your own content.

The theme in SU seems to be finding new sites.  Once you’ve been stumbled a few times you’re no longer new and get less traffic.  I don’t know, I’m I wrong?

My impression is that SU has lots of filters preventing people from voting up each other. So having too many friends etc. makes you suspicious.

StumbleUpon has a fantastic advertising concept, but if you are too cheap to pay for views, its true its best treated as a leisure activity.

Well, obviously it works if you have different content posted on your site every day or week and you stumble that.

Stumbling all day can’t bring huge amounts of traffic. You need content. But stumbling 15 minutes a day brings more traffic than never stumbling. . .

Yes, I’ve definitely noticed that after you get that first initial burst of traffic from being discovered, SU referrels go way down even if future pages on your site are stumbled.  15 minutes a day and using the program to find new things to read and interesting people is probably worth more than trying to game it as an SEO.
