StumbleUpon is one of the most popular social sites on the Internet. Unlike other sites, like Delicious, it isn’t social bookmarking, nor is it, like Digg, considered social news. Rather, StumbleUpon falls into the category of social browsing. You can use the social browsing concept to help you optimize your website.
There are two ways you can do this. The first way is to pay attention to hot topics within your niche. When you browsing the topics within your niche and you see a blog post or content on another website become popular then you have a clue as to what other social browsers might be interested in. Visit the page and look at the website to find out what it’s keywords are and build a web page on your own site around those same keywords.
Another way to test social browsing and to use it to find keywords that might be powerful and profitable keywords for you is to write a blog post and submit it to StumbleUpon. If you see your blog post getting a lot of traffic and there is a significant increase in traffic as a result of that blog post, try writing a web page on your website around the same concept as your blog post. By including more information on the topic and targeting the keywords for that concept with more in-depth content you could build a powerful and profitable web page around a popular topic.
Now you’ve seen two ways that social browsing can help you with the search engine optimization efforts for your website. Why not give it a try?
