StumbleUpon Releases StumbleThru For Domains

StumbleUpon, a search service that displays recommended sites for users based on interest profiles, has released StumbleThru, a service that searches for content from some of the most popular sites on the web, including Flickr, MySpace, Wikipedia, YouTube, BBC, CNN, and Physorg.

This makes it easy to discover new content on these sites that has been given a thumbs-up ranking by other StumbleUpon users, theoretically making it easier to find the better quality content on these sites.

StumbleThru is available on the web, or users of the StumbleUpon Toolbar, when on a StumbleThru domain, will see an icon that will focus stumbling on the selected site.

The company says more domains will be added to StumbleThru in the near future.

    The link doesn’t work for me. I get a 404 error.

    NO!!! I specifically use SU to find pages outside of what would be considered “popular websites”. Maybe I’m old school, but finding John Doe’s website about his awesome “Hobbit House” via SU was a memorable experience, vs running through flickr with millions of people fighting to get the first digg.

    I can spend an hour or two just stumbling around the web, and finding really neat sites that I just can’t find anywhere else. I hope this doesn’t intrude on what I liked most about the service, I understand growth, and wish them luck with Yahoo, however.
