StumbleUpon is the greatest source of my site traffic just next to facebook.But facebook is erratic and changes rules whenever they want.They can because they are the boss.
But stumbleupon is nice.It plays fair.
If you want your blog traffic from Stumble, you can’t stumble only your pages.You have to Stumble and like others.
Otherwise Stumbleupon penalizes.
For inspiring you my traffic pic from Stumble.
My account is quite new from March.
The numbers are not very high but good.But they are good if you consider the value -effort curve.
You can’t stumble and like more than once.Have a good selection of your interests.
Your interests are important, as stumbleupon will try to show more options to your liking.
It’s a great site for organic social traffic.

There are rules about how many times you can add a page from a single domain (it’s a secret which they are not sharing) .
If you approach or reach that limit, you will be identified as spammer and they will put you in stumble jail.No clue about bail.
Forum links show they don’t answer!
If you have a commercial web page , you may only use StumbleUpon to drive traffic if you are using their Paid Discovery service.
Please know that if your account shows unauthorized promotional activity.Its again stumble jail.
