Marc Andreessen discovers StumbleUpon.

One of my heros, Marc Andreessen (pretty much the inventor of the web browser) has been blogging for about 5 weeks now. And one of his 11 key blogging discoveries? The extraordinary traffic coming from StumbleUpon. Welcome to the party, Marc!

    Stumbleupon is ‘the biz’ – an incredible source of amusement, amazement and information I have to resist the urge to use it otherwise work would never get done.

    But how do you get your site listed?
    Is it just a matter of adding it to your membership profile or are sites spidered?

    Recently found Stumble Upon and hence your site. Amazed at the range of stuff I am seeing that I might not normally see. Weird stuff too, but having fun.

    I have been using StumbleUpon for several weeks now. In addition to giving a thumbs-up to others’ blogs, I have been recommending some of my own posts. However, I have never seen any (I mean zero) traffic from StumbleUpon. Am I doing something wrong? I blog about video games, mmorpgs in particular.

    @Fred – I feel for you, mate. The secret *starts* with having a “top” (or as close to top as possible) stumbler discover your site, i.e. being the first to stumble/review your page/s. Try that and see what happens! There is more but that’s the start.
