    and will automatically increase the “link juice” to every page that you add, review, or “Stumble” using the StumbleUpon service.

    You do know all but stumbleupon internal pages are nofollow right?
    So yes this will help with ranking in some engines it’s not a very effective solution, still a nice idea a place this might work with slightly more use is who again is entirely nofollow but seems to still pass juice to yahoo results these days, what’s the point of having a human edited directory if you can’t use it

    Although StumbleUpon uses nofollow, there still may be some credit passed. Because of tests I’ve run recently, having nofollow on link doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s absolutely no link credit being passed.

    Even so, it pays to take the 2 minutes to claim your StumbleUpon blog through Technorati.

    Nofollow or not, this must be worth a try. Good tip, this isn’t something I’d thought of before.

    I think adding your SU blog to Technorati is not wrong. Of course the “blogs” at SU are mostly not very large, but the idea ia based in the same principle.

    DeMerchant, I don’t use BlogRush on this site by choice. After a while I got sick and tired of all of the “blog bling” so I ditched it all for a cleaner, fresher design.

    Seriously, I would have never thought of this before. Lucky for me there’s people like you making informative blog posts like this. Thank you. I agree with you bill about the no follow. I believe there is some juice passed there for some reason. I don’t think their totally discounted.
