My 20 Friends at StumbleUpon
As I am continously gaining popularity on StumbleUpon at a fast pace I wanted to take a break and introduce to you my by now 20 friends at StumbleUpon. Those stumblers are the creme de la creme of the Net. Hyperactive, prolific bloggers, social media power-users and SMO/SEO experts. But not all of them, if you look for a SEO stumblers overview move on to Cornwall SEO. Although many of those stumblers do SEO it's not the main focus of this overview to highlight that.
The most apparent reason why you should get some interesting friends on SU is: You get their reviews presented on your SU page. Imagine your friends or industry experts writing a daily newspaper for you. Reading the reviews of your SU friends is just like that. So if you want to befriend me on SU take a look at what you review. Moreover I want to move away from SEO only stumbling as I you do not live off bread alone as we say in Germany.
In future I will add more art, design and progress oriented stumblers to my friends list so thatmy focus doesn't narrow too much.
So finally here is the list, every single person here is outstanding in at least one way, so I attempt to summarize it in one sentence for each of them. The list is not sorted in any logical or hierarchical way.
- Glen-Allsopp - Glen is an incredible youngster with a deep insight in what's going on in social media, make sure to hire him before he gets to expensive
- webgeekgirl - She manages to surprise me with great posts about SEO that I did not know (and normally I know just about everything about SEO!)
