Tucson Marketing: Quit Fumbling, Start Stumbling
Written by: Ryan Flannagan

Troubled by the overwhelming searches on Google or Yahoo never appealing to the human aspect?

Imagine a website tailored to your specific interest.

StumbleUpon features:

  • a practical and easily accessible website that is tailored to the selected interests of the user
  • the user can maneuver through an unlimited number of interests unique to each person
  •  pictures, rather than words, aid in the exploration of the internet’s treasures

StumbleUpon creates a versatile atmosphere that is entertaining whether you are using it for sources on a project or just shuffling around the internet. Search Engines such as Bing or Google provide websites that are popular and relevant. However, this is not always ideal because they frequently inundate you with too many matches. For example, a Google search for photography will yield these results:

Google thoroughly looks for tags and upon searching for photography submits about 245,000,000 related articles. Searchingly by popularity, Google does not always optimize the user’s intentions. For a ‘hard search’ or a search for direct information, Google provides outstanding responses for specific detailed areas.

StumbleUpon searches the depths of the Internet to find any pictures, informative articles or related to the topic. Compared to the Google search for photography, StumbleUpon creates a unique image every time it is “stumbled”.

Rather than looking for different websites based on popularity, StumbleUpon’s unique way of pulling up other webpage’s acquainted with photography is remarkable. It brings words to life. Every new click of the StumbleUpon logo will achieve different results.

StumbleUpon spontaneous results expand the user’s creativity with one click. It has the ability to mix all of your selected interests to be discovered. Like a magazine, each page is unique and could possibly be filled with articles, help, pictures, or even videos. Planning to further research or discover new areas, StumbleUpon provides its users with an advertisement free experience rare to most sites nowadays.

Another key feature is the ability to give a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’. This allows the site to recognize the user’s preferences.

Sites and sites similar to the initial website that was given a ‘thumbs down’ on StumbleUpon are likely to not show up again for the user while sites that are given a thumbs up are given more frequently to the Stumbler.

While sites such as Google thrive in their own environment, StumbleUpon created an entertaining and wide-open experience to users of all ages. StumbleUpon also has combined with links for all areas of social media including Facebook.

Companies in Tucson looking for a more direct, innovative, and entertaining way of attracting customers should not overlook the value of Stumble Upon. StumbleUpon is a useful tool for everyone. StumbleUpon allows the searching based on interests rather than hits.  Not only does the site get the names of many would-be unknown businesses for millions of viewers to see, but consumers are also able to find new products and learn new information with a simple push of a button.
