StumbleUpon does have some weaknesses however. Users have a knack of hitting the “STUMBLE” button and might bounce off to other more interesting things on the web.
To increase engagement, include an image above the fold and use text formatting and sub-headings to break up the wall of text.
Be patient and work on accumulating traffic from various sources – StumbleUpon is one option. Creating visual content and titles that hook the reader can go a long way. Good luck with your content marketing efforts!
