Unless you haven’t been paying attention in the past few years, you know StumbleUpon is one of the top Web 2.0 communities around. Twitter and Facebook may have stolen a bit of StumbleUpon’s thunder in the past few months, but it is still one of the best communities to be a part of, especially if you are a blogger. Su.pr is a URL shortening service by StumbleUpon that is designed to help you get more traffic from StumbleUpon, Facebook, and Twitter. Here is how Supr works. Once you submit your URLs to Supr, the system will shorten them and keeps track of the number of clicks and stumbles that they have received. With Supr for WordPress, you can easily shorten your URLs and submit your blog posts to Twitter and Facebook.
Supr for WordPress allows you to bring this powerful service to your blog. It’s very easy to install and configure. As long as you have decent quality posts that people may be interested in sharing with others, there is no reason Supr can’t bring you lots of traffic from the social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The plugin allows you to post your blogs to Facebook and Twitter automatically. So you won’t need any additional service to share all your blog posts with your followers and friends. You can also host your own URL shortening service on your own domain. I do encourage you to test the StumbleUpon toolbar for your shortened URLs. The toolbar encourages your visitors to give you feedback on your posts and even rate them. So you can keep getting traffic if your visitors vote for your posts using the convenient toolbar at the top.
All in all, if you are looking for a simple, free plugin that lets you share your posts with your followers and friends on popular social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, Supr for WordPress comes in handy.
