The Life Cycle Of A Webpage On Stumbleupon [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ads by Google

There’s no denying that Stumbleupon is a very powerful social networking tool when it comes to promoting websites. Once a page gets into the Stumbleupon system (up to 2.2 million pages a month!), it can then be seen by hundreds, thousands, if not tens of thousands of people, all in a very short time.

Finding quality websites can be a challenge sometimes. That’s why it’s good that systems like Stumbleupon exist – to allow real people to submit what they feel is the best out there. This human-curated content ensures that the quality rises to the top while the worthless dregs float to the bottom. SU drives over 50% of online social media traffic so it’s nothing to sniff about. If you are serious about promoting your site, you would be a fool to ignore Stumbleupon.

We here at MakeUseOf have extensively discussed Stumbleupon before, as well as explained how StumbleUpon works. I myself am an enthusiastic Stumbler and indeed one of my earliest posts was on essential Stumbleupon tools. Now we have an infographic from Stumbleupon themselves, showing just what they can do when it comes to giving a site exposure. The half-life of an average link is apparently 400 hours and the average amount of time spent on a site by a stumbler is 72 seconds (but I guess that is down to the page content – if you give enough interesting engaging content, people will stick around longer).

Let us know what you think of the infographic. Do you agree that Stumbleupon has the same power and influence that it had when it first started? Is it a true force to be reckoned with when stacked up against the likes of Twitter, Facebook and now Google Plus?  Let us know in the comments.
