How To Submit A Site To StumbleUpon

Last updated: May 11, 2015 - 11:48am EDT

Do you have a favourite website that you think people on StumbleUpon would like to find?  If so, you can submit it to StumbleUpon, and they may put it in their database, just waiting for another user to "stumble" across it!  Here's how to do it.

  1. Go to www.stumbleupon.com in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click on your profile picture in the top-right corner, and click Add a Page in the menu that appears.

  3. On the next page, you'll enter the website's information.  This includes its web address, whether or not it's "safe for work" (i.e. it doesn't contain nudity, sex acts, gratuitous violence, excessive bad language, or other explicit content), and what interest StumbleUpon should categorize it under.  You also need to tell StumbleUpon the language that the website (primarily) displays in.



    You can also add a bit of extra descriptive information, if you wish.  When you're done, click Add This Page.

  4. StumbleUpon will give you a confirmation that you've added the page, and it will show up in your profile under My Likes (which you can get to by clicking on that phrase here).

That's how you add a website to StumbleUpon!

Notes on adding a website to StumbleUpon

  • You can add your own personal website, if you wish, as long as you're not selling a product or service.  If you are, then you'll have to sign up for StumbleUpon as an advertiser and use their "Paid Discovery" service if you want to add your website.  Otherwise, StumbleUpon may permanently lock you out of your account.

  • If you want to add a friend's non-commercial website to StumbleUpon, that's fine.  However, you are not allowed to "promote" it by adding multiple pages from the same website to StumbleUpon, and "liking" and/or commenting on those pages.  You are also not allowed to encourage other StumbleUpon users to do this.  Otherwise, StumbleUpon may permanently lock you out of your account.

  • Be careful about adding too many web pages to StumbleUpon from the same website.  For example, if you add a certain website, just add their home page; don't add their "about us", "contact us", "gallery", and "in the news" pages too.  Otherwise, StumbleUpon may think that you're trying to promote the website (see above point), and permanently lock you out of your account.
