Last Chance For 10 – AutoStumble

I’ve been really happy with the progress of AutoStumble. At the time of writing, we’ve got over 300 users and the network has produced 38,734 stumble votes!

For those of you who haven’t seen it before, check out my original post on AutoStumble. This should give you a pretty good idea of how it works.

In a nutshell, for those who can’t be bothered to read it – AutoStumble is a desktop application, whereby you are linked up with everybody else running the program. You enter your URL you wish to promote on StumbleUpon and your URL is then put into a “pool”, which is automatically and randomly StumbledUpon (voted) on by other users. To cover any patterns, we also introduce random URLs for that will be added to everybody?s list, so it would be very, very difficult for activity to be spotted algorithmically (or by hand for that matter!).

The end result is that you get dozens (or hundreds, depending how long you leave your URL in for) of StumbleUpon votes for your URL, which gives you a great head start to make your content go hot on StumbleUpon.

No, it doesn’t work by magic fairy dust, so you do actually need decent content to make it go fully viral on stumble. Your page trying to flog Viagra, or your boring analytical flow-diagram of your daily food intake isn’t going to take. If you’ve got content with viral potential however, AutoStumble is the perfect way to get you up those first difficult rungs of the social ladder.

Since we’ve got a lot of network users now and the network is running smoothly, I’m going to jack the price up to 20, being the horrible businessman I am.

So if you want to grab AutoStumble before the price doubles – you’ve got until Wednesday afternoon (GMT).

Or you can read the reviews.

    I would consider it, but I don’t think there is the demand.

    @jombo

    Hahaha. Value of program is directly proportional to network size, which is about 3 times bigger than when Eli posted – so you’re actually getting a better deal.

    Still .. £20 one off.. It is a lot of money. Why not sign up to Eli’s SQUIRT? That’s only £50 per month :)

    Looks like this site is banned by SU now. How many other sites in the network have been banned?

    When I ran this, I stumbled about 70 sites then got “Nothing in the queue at this time” What does it take to keep this thing running? What am I missing. You can’t have it “run all night” on just 70 sites. Thanks.

    @ Eric
    That’s the first report I’ve had – how many stumbles did you do? You didn’t go crazy did you?

    Thanks Eric, maybe I’m doing something wrong. I have it set for an address and after nearly 24 hours it has 152 stumbles given and 176 Stumbles received. Most of the time it continues to say “Nothing in the queue at this time”

    Hi guys,

    The queue is not actually empty, but we have set limits on when queue “chunks” are delivered to you.

    This stops obvious footprints appearing and gives you the chance to stop stumbling if your content goes viral.

    @Joe – Stumbles don’t appear on analytics, because you’re not actually getting a visitor – just a vote.

    Thanks Mark, that makes a lot of sense on the stumbles. What doesn’t jibe is the number of stumbles I make. I have now set it to 6 minutes, won’t that equate to 10 per hour?

    @ Mark – I am talking about your site – digeratimarketing.co.uk – I tried to Stumble it and got -> “Banned Site

    You cannot rate or comment on this website. It has been banned from StumbleUpon because the owner has been abusing our service, or has asked that their site not be included in StumbleUpon.”

    @Eric

    oh right. Digerati is banned on Stumble – not actually because of AutoStumble :) It was banned because somebody submitted the post about AutoStumble to SU then obviously loads of hardcore users don’t like the idea and thumbed it down – SU bans sites when enough users have thumbed down :)

    Still on 0 sites banned from AutoStumble usage then, woo! :)
