Would you like to add “Stumble It” buttons to your blogs, along with a counter to show the number of stumbles on your blog post svia StumbleUpon.com ? Then, relax and follow this short tutorial…
The buttons are straight from StumbleUpon, with no modification required. Your readers will simply click these buttons to submit your blog posts to StumbleUpon and all the visitors coming to your page from SU will be counted by SU and the number of visitors will be shown in these buttons.
