StumbleUpon is a online content sharing website where readers read publishers content. Here anyone can find any niche related article all he needs to do is to select his favourite category and then start stumbling. However our concern is to get traffic rather than becoming traffic. So, we will be focusing on How to get traffic from StumbleUpon. It is very easy, Just sign up for an account there and share your content with different Stumblers all around the web.
Q: How to do it?
ANS: You can do it quite easily by just visiting StumbleUpon Home page, then go to Add Page and submit your link there, after putting your content URL in the Web page Address, select Yes for the second option which is “
After completing the first two steps select your Page category that what is your page about. This will help StumbleUpon to suggest your page to the people who are interested in it.

Reddit is the most popular content sharing website where millions if not billions share different types of content from different type of sources and then they just have a little chit chat about the content but this process helps Webmasters a lot in gaining some organic and unique traffic for their Blog whether they share their content on their own or someone else does it for them.
So our strategy will be the same which is to promote your content on Reddit to enlarge the amount of traffic you do have. All you need to do is to sign up for a Reddit account and then start adding your posts or articles on relevant subreddits.
EXTRA INFO: Subreddits are actually categories on which people talk on Reddit. Because the website name is Reddit so they have called their categories Subreddits to give it a little fancy look.
But wait a second! Don’t think that you will go on Reddit and will just share your content there and you will just start gettings tons of traffic for your Blog.
You first need to establish your account and then earn some karma links which are actually respect you do have on Reddit.(karma links = respect or authority). And to do this you need to engage with audience there and have a little chit chat on different topic in which you are interested and post some of your content too. However, I will advice you to not share your own website or Blog content in the first month to avoid any suspensions or penalties from Reddit’s administrator because they hate content promotion. After a month when you have enough know how of Reddit and its users attitude share your content with an handsome Title to attract as many readers as you can.
EXTRA TIP: Try to get into the top page of the subreddit because if you do you will find thousands of unique visitors per day on your website and if you managed to put your page on the homepage of Reddit then you should receive hundred and thousands of visitors per day. BELIEVE ME! However, getting your Post on first page isn’t that easy. Search more about Reddit on Google.
3) Ordinary Social Media Website

Just promote your content on the Pages and communities of these websites who are relevant to your content and try to engage as many users as you can to turn them into real traffic. For Example if you are writing on SEO then search for different Pages who have same niche as yours and post a comment on one of their posts and say; “Hey, I have made a post about “this this or this”. Maybe you guys will love to see it. Find this peace of content here: “yourblogurl.com/page-url”.
See, That’s how easy it is and there is a huge possibility that many will visit your Blog. Just make an attracting Title and an eye catching image.
