Under our Terms of Service we make no guarantees with regard to traffic for content added with a personal StumbleUpon account, and offer no support in that respect.

If your primary objective in using StumbleUpon is to gain traffic for your site, then we would recommend that you explore the service designed for that purpose:  ads.stumbleupon.com

We hope that this is helpful to you.

She is not talking about a personal website; just like me, anything I add is not being viewed, although, one week ago, everything was working fine.

This is correct, I am saving pages from all over the internet, not a personal website, and noticing they get 0 stumbles to them. These sites include refinery29, buzzfeed, etc. I made sure to add relevant tags, etc. This just struck me as odd based off of past likes and stumble patterns. Hence, I was wondering if it was a problem with my account. But this looks like a more widespread problem.

Exactly, I was noticing the same; just after a page is added, normaly, it gets a bunch of views and lately, for a week, this was not happening anymore.

I use it mainly as a favoriting service too and it is cool when pages are viewed across StumbleUpon because you know people will see it either, unlike other social media platforms.

Actually, I gave it a test and it seems thing are back to normality.

Give it a try later and see if it is working fine for you as well, my friend.

Actually, you can forget everything I said about StumbleUpon working again.

The problem is there again: no views.

An interesting detail is that, for the second time, it happened just after I received an e-mail telling me "Your pages are being Stumbled".

Then, the next page I added received no views at all two days in a row already.

Unfortunately, I am not able to doubt you.

I am dealing with this problem for long time now and I can not see that ending soon anymore.

I was almost becoming a top user of it before it decided to stop working properly.

This problem has been coming and going for me: how often is that happening to you?

Three weeks ago it was not working, then, it returned for a week, and now it is not working anymore, I mean, in my experience.

No matter what I try to add, it gets no stumbles at all.

I have had the same result. I began getting stumbles to added content again about two weeks ago and then it dropped back off.

It is good to know about that as it shows we are dealing with the same problem.

Anyway, something quite weird is how the other users are not being affected by this issue.

I mean, how would we stumble upon the content added by someone if every thing added is not getting stumble?

Off-course, it must be working for them all otherwise it would cause a paralyzation.

Same problem here.

StumbleUpon did not work this week and I do not know if it will eventually after one week of unchanging zero.

I do not know why would we, "stumblers", have a reason to continue adding pages if they are not being viewed.

This is just malfunction and this issue is far from solved.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why are my submissions not getting any likes or views?.

Hello,

I have been using stumbleupon since quite a while now, and i have noticed in recent days in past month or two, when i submitted urls from my website (nudeimgs . xyz), with proper tags and category. they are not getting any views or likes. Is my website getting censored for some reason? if so can you please tell me what i can do to uncensor or unblock it? previously i was getting such nice traffic from stumbleupon and now suddenly my website is censored. i am not spamming i am posting with correct tags and categories.

Please help
Regards
Mb

No restrictions on your account or content at this time, but various factors - such opening multiple accounts which are posting the same content! - might trigger our automated anti-spam/anti-flooding measures.

Over and above that, please see the 'official response' to the opening post in this thread. Thanks.

Probably it is not happening only with your content as I am experience that with any page I add to StumbleUpon.

Try another domains and report back later whether it is a general problem or a specific issue with your domain.

Also, is your content in English? I noticed another languages seem to have less stumblers around what may contribute to the few page views as well.

What if other people are all sharing your content at the same time? Like if i post a new article and then my viewers all stumbled it? I'm being told that they've stumbled it, but I'm getting zero traffic. Is there another problem ? T

As no content I add is getting stumbles, I guess it has to do with the distribution itself, but I am not sure.

If your stumble count is less than ten for an addition, probably, you are the one who are stumbling, I think, as I observed my few stumbles are all mine while I go there to check if it is working.

Please see the 'official reply' at the head of this thread. If you are able to Stumble with your account, and - after Stumbling for a day or so - Add a page of new content from another site, then your account is fully functional.

This image explains pretty much what I am dealing with while using StumbleUpon: as you can see no stumbles on my discovered pages which are getting stumbled nonsensically.

It seems it is not working anymore for nobody.

I noticed even when two people like an added page, it still gets no stumbles as you can see here.
