  1. Those are quite long average times from StumbleUpon users! Often a referral from StumbleUpon can result in a lot of really short visits to a site as serial thumbs-downers trawl through the web. According to some stats from Luke Wroblewski at the IA Summit, 25% of page views on the web are less than 4 seconds, and 52% are less than 10 seconds.
