Does anyone here use reddit as a major traffic source?

4 replies
I have been in internet marketing for a few years now and use lots of social networks to promote my links, mainly YouTube and twitter.

I have heard that some people have gotten lots of traffic from reddit and I was wondering if anyone here uses it and could give some tips?

Thanks in advance!

    I have tried using reddit but not getting any success in it. I would say there are lots of articles there and if you wont give much time then you wont get traffic better to do forum marketing and fb marketing than reddit

    I think for any success with Reddit you need to be able to post in a very relevant category and use only your best content. I also think to be a general helpful user to others for a few months (show your genuine interest and knowledge on a subject) before posting your own content helps, it looks more 'social' and less self-promotive. If you jump into an on-going conversation just to say, "Hey, look at my piece" it could go really badly. Best of luck

    I see people posting links to premium wordpress plugins so I am thinking maybe they are getting traffic to those pages? Not sure if they have to pay to post.

    I've gotten tons of traffic from reddit but it was crap traffic. It almost all bounced out and I didn't get one conversion out of 900 hits. Total waste of time. I've even tried reddit ads. Just a waste of $36.
