Increasing Your Stumbleupon Network

With it apparently being stumbleupon week I figured I would give an insight on how you can increase your stumbleupon network. First I will tell you why this is important.

Why it is important to increase your stumbleupon network

By people adding you to their friends list, they are then subscribed to the pages you stumble. The pages you stumble are what they will see, when they are stumbling. If that makes sense. Then if they stumble your page, those people who are friends of theirs will see your page. By getting more people subscribed to your pages, the more powerful your stumbles are. Basically a person who has 100 friends has a more powerful stumble than a brand new stumbler. Not only is it more powerful, but it has a greater chance more people will see it. That is the main benefit of building your stumbleupon network.

Three ways you can increase your network

When I wrote about the importance of building your stumbleupon network I mentioned that I had 59 fans. 2 days later, I currently have 118 fans. How did I do it?

First you should mention your stumbleupon page when writing about stumbleupon like I do. By doing this people go and add you as a friend, trying to build their own network. Somewhat similar to the technorati favorites exchange we saw some time ago.

Ask for friends! Yesterday I was asking for comments and a friend request, in turn I stumbled their blog or website.

The most successful thing I did however was turn to the digital point forums. Under the freebies section I posted 20 free stumbles. In return all I asked was that they add me as their friend, and I would stumble one URL. After doing this twice I gained about 40 new friends.

Nowadays internet phone system has brought about a revolution. The technology uses a voip phone that can be regarded as ip phones by some to spread about the benefits of internet telephone service to the users. Skype, the most popular voip service provider has already gained a secure position among business users by making possible very low cost long distance calls via internet by just a skype download on the mobile phones.

What have you done to increase your stumbleupon network?
