Stumble Upon Set Up – 01

Setting Up Your Account and Profile

StumbleUpon sends more traffic to other websites than Facebook, Reddit, Digg and Twitter combined. Since its main purpose is to help people find websites they’re interested in, they can be a huge source of traffic for web marketers, as well as a great source of enjoyment for everyday users.

The first step to using StumbleUpon is to setup your account. How you setup your StumbleUpon account in large part defines the experience you’ll have on StumbleUpon. Why? Because this is where you set your interests, or in other words tell StumbleUpon what kind of topics you’re interested in.

In addition, this is where you also setup your profile and avatar so people can get more of a sense of who you are.

Here’s how to setup your StumbleUpon account and profile.
