Hidden in the obscure StumbleUpon toolbar settings is a feature that’ll change the way you stumble!
The way Stumbleupon works is quite different from any other social media site. Normally, every time you click the Stumble! button, you are presented with a web page on one of the topics you specified earlier. However, sometimes this is not enough. Sometimes you want more control over what kind of pages you’d like to browse through for a particular session.
And this is where the search feature of StumbleUpon toolbar comes in. SumbleUpon search feature allows you to surf through web pages on a single topic of your liking for as long as you want.
To enable the search feature, go to Tools > Toolbar Options > Configuration and check the “Show search/tag box” under the options group “Other“.
When you click OK, you’ll have a nice search box sitting just beside the reviews balloon on the toolbar.
To test if it works, enter a keyword such as “movies” or “marketing” and hit enter. Now every time you click on the Stumble button, you’ll jump to a page about movies or marketing (depending on which keyword you entered).
To return to the normal way of stumbling, click on “All” button on the toolbar.
Bonus tip: You can also tag web pages using the search/tag box. If you are on a web page about WordPress, enter “WordPress” in the box and hit Shift+Enter on the keyboard. Later, you can find the pages you tagged by clicking on the “Find pages you liked” link on your StumbleUpon profile page.
