Stats are based on aggregate social media and other data collected by StatCounter on a sample exceeding 15 billion pageviews per month.
As we can see on the social media infographic from StumbleUpon, 2.2 million web pages added to StumbleUpon every month - that’s 51 pages every minute.
StumbleUpon already drives over 50% of Social Traffic in the USA against Facebook’s 37%, but the most impressive stat is that after 24 hours a popular shared link will typically get 5% more “likes” on Facebook and 83% more Stumbles, and whilst the average half-life of a link (the point in time when a link has garnered half of the engagement it will ever get) is 2.8 hours on Twitter, 3.2 hours on Facebook and 400 hours on StumbleUpon - yes 400!
If you are not yet impressed with the quality of StumbleUpon on traffic generation, maybe the fact that the average time the Stumble view lasts 25% longer than an average web page view will make your mind. It definitely made mine.
