Tonight I was analyzing some of the referring sites for my blog and I couldn't help but see a statistic that stands out more than any other – StumbleUpon kalaiwa i ka nui o ke kaʻa i kaʻu pūnaewele! Nui a hewahewa nā pūnaewele i waho ma ka pūnaewele, akā loaʻa iā StumbleUpon kahi pono kūpono hoʻokahi i loaʻa ʻole i kekahi poʻe ʻē aʻe - hāʻawi lākou i nā loulou e ka hoihoi pili.
Ke hoʻouka ʻoe i ka ʻOihana paahana StumbleUpon (ʻo wai ʻoe ʻoiaʻiʻo pono), ʻo ʻoe ʻōniu on sites and give them a thumbs up or thumbs down. As you generate a history, the sites that StumbleUpon sends you to next are matched based on your likelihood to give them a thumbs up. It's a remarkable process that is very intelligent.
Perhaps more important than the number of visitors that StumbleUpon sends me is the fact that it's a referring site with a very, very low bounce rate! About half of the people sent to my site click through to another post or page on the website. That's a very low bounce rate, lower than any other referring site.
like Slashdot, Digg, a me nā ʻenekini bookmarking nui ʻē aʻe, aia maoli iā StumbleUpon ka "Midas touch", e hāʻawi ana i kāu blog a i ʻole pūnaewele me nā kaʻa e ʻike i kāu ʻike. pili based on the profile they've developed on your visitor's likes and dislikes.
Mahalo nui i kekahi o nā mea kuhikuhi ʻē aʻe i kaʻu pūnaewele, ʻO Bittbox. They've sent more traffic from adding me to their blogroll than I would ever deserve for helping them out. If you're a newbie or experienced graphic artist, be sure to check out the Bittbox site and sign up for their feed. It's an amazing site with detailed tutorials and tons of downloads.
Hoʻolaha pū kekahi Twitter is creeping up the referrals! If you haven't set up a Twitterfeed or added an autoposting mechanism for your blog to get posted on Twitter, you must do it today!
