I find when I do post do Stumbleupon I get about an extra 200-300 hits on the page (one time 1500 which for my site is crazy), but I see from Google Analytics that the users don't hang around too long (compared to readers who've landed via other links or a google search).
I don't get an increase in sign-ups to my opt-in, nor much spill over into other pages they view after the one linked on SU.... so my question is - is the nature of SU that the user is just in 'scanning-mode' and not that receptive to individual sites, or does my site just suck?! Do you folks get anything out of SU other than a traffic spike and not much else? Or do you think Adsense is a better way of monetizing pages that I'm posting on SU?
Thanks for your input, I've learned a lot on WF just by skulking around in the background like some creep, don't post much but I truly do love you all ;-)
