In this article we are going to look at the steps we will undertake to publish an article to StumbleUpon . For specific login details – these will vary from organisation to organisation – however herein will assume we are publishing for David Cruwys from Ideasmen.
This is lesson six in the “Social Media Strategies for your Business Using WordPress” series
Select the Post You Would Like to Publish on StumbleUpon from WordPress
Go into the WordPress for the site you wish to publish for instance ideasmen.com.au/wp-admin.php and sign in. Then
- Click the Posts button on the left hand navigation bar
- Click the article you wish to promote
- Ensure that you are only doing this for articles which are published – you can ratify this by the status of the article
Open the Article You Wish to Post on StumbleUpon
Now that you are only the WordPress for the actual page:
1. Hold Control and click “View Post” – which will bring up the page in a new tab
Open the StumbleUpon Share Feature
On the left hand corner of the page you will see the ability to share directly to Twitter by clicking the icon.

StumbleUpon wll then prompt you to fill in some information about the page we wish to socialise.
When it asks “is this page safe for work” – click YES
Then for “What’s this page about’? – you will have to find the industry which is most relevant to the content you are publishing. There is a long list so if you are not sure please check back with us.
For the tags – generate some which are relevant to the article – these can match the exact tags of the article if they are relevant which you or another individual should have already pre-populated
For the write a comment section write a 50-100 unique summary about the article – be aware to input at least two to three keywords into this which are relevant to the article
