HOW STUMBLEUPON PAID DISCOVERY WORKS
StumbleUpon is a social network that allows users to discover websites from across the web that matches predefined interests such as sports, fashion or business. When discovering content, users can rate it (thumbs up or thumbs down). The highest rated websites show up more often in general and low rated websites do not show up for any of the users that gave a thumbs down.
Wondering why your website doesn't automatically show up and gets rated on StumbleUpon? Unless the website URL has been submitted to StumbleUpon.com, the website will not show up. If you haven't yet, you can submit your website here or you can contact Zebra Advertisement and we will submit it for you.
With StumbleUpon Paid Discovery, you pay to have your website suggested to a specific group of StumbleUpon users when they discover websites. The URL that triggers the web page you chose as your ad is entirely up to you. It could be your home page, a landing page a blog or and e-commerce store - the sky is the limit. Viewers will be able to navigate just as they usually would and basically see whatever content you are providing within StumbleUpon.
