Social Bookmarking Website like Digg and stumbleupon are one of the best source of traffic for your website.In fact about 70% of one of my website’s traffic comes from stumble.
The problem with the traffic from social networking websites is,that its not very consistent.You need to have more votes to get more traffic. In case of Digg.com you need to have more digs where as for Stumbleupon you need more “thumbs up or reviews” to get a consistent traffic.
Let’s see how SU works.You give your thumb’s up to a page. Initially SU refers low traffic to that page (as per my knowledge ,initially they refer old and top stumblers to that page). If they give a thumbs up to that page then you get more traffic from SU until the ratio of THUMBS-UP per REFERS remains high.

Similarly you can add others if you want.You can also add google/yahoo/msn to greet users from search engines,but it makes no sense to greet users from search engine.
I am planing to code a wordpress plugin with this script after my exams get over. Although you can use this script directly on your wordpress blog. Just place this script in the <head> tag of the template. If you are using Joomla then you can use this script or you can also use a extension known as mfReferral
If you want to check this script, then you can use RefControl .
Current issues with this script:
- This script cannot sidtinguish between subdomain and domains.So something.blogspot.com and blogspot.com are the same for this script.
Please comment if you find this script useful .
