Traffic from Stumbleupon
Traffic - the word that every optimizers working for. Now there are so many easiest ways to gain traffic for a site through PPC Campaigns. However we want some more money on those campaigns than a SEO campaign. The usage of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook also driving some traffic for the site.
How about this site - Stumbleupon. Another Social Networking Site which can provide better traffic next to Search Engines. But, what makes me confusing is, the page views shown in Stumbleupon profile is much more differ than the traffic shown in Analytics. The Stumbleupon shows views in hundreds and thousands. Whereas the analytics shows only tens and units. It's acceptable if the difference is marginal since it may shows every single page load. But there won't be a huge difference like this.
The URL shortener of Stumbleupon - Su.pr, comes with the description Drive more traffic with short urls, whether Stumbleupon too showing fake views as the other URL shorteners doing. Its still confusing.
You can check this with My Stumbleupon Profile itself. Check that with the site ZS Cart, in my profile its showing 704 views(on 6th July '10) but in analytics it shows the overall traffic from Stumbleupon is just 54. Such a huge difference.
