I found a subreddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/thehubhub/
No one has been active there for a year... Until now!
I don't take credit for this forum and I don't know who created it (if it was you say hi) but I do know that it is the perfect place to share your hubs, explore other hubs, rate hubs and generate traffic.
Having links to your hubs on any site means they are more likely to be picked up right? And on this site we can vote each other's hubs up or down, we can create competitions and we can slowly become a real part of the Reddit community so that we will be able to spread the word about HP and create more interest and success.
So, who's with me? Let's relaunch this subreddit and share our articles on there now!
Reckon it can't hurt to give it a try. Have you messaged the moderator listed to see if you can moderate?
I have not done that but it is a very good idea.
A post of mine is showing up, I'll try and have a look to see what's going on.
Right, message sent.
Let's see what happens.
Just joined although be forewarned that I'm reddit clueless.
I submitted an article this morning but it is yet to appear on there, even under "New"....
I've had enough traffic through a post on there to gain a little red arrow on the hub I shared so that's good. I'm not sure if that was just a fluke though and I don't know who else has had such success.
I think for it to work we just all need to bite the bullet and post something, as well as searching for other people's which is difficult so far because of the stubborn year old posts that won't budge! We need to swarm it.
After 15 hours, I received one view, according to HP stats. But the hubscore did increase.
Not sure how reddit works. I have submitted a hub and voted up your hubs there. Thanks for the tips, Amy.
This is one place you can submit hubs night and day and not be a spammer. Because that is what this subreddit is for.
I used to post a lot of hubs there both mine and others I followed. I have to say that after an initial small flurry it never really did much for the ongoing traffic, although obviously I can't speak for the other hubber's hubs I posted.
Thanks for sharing your experience, you're probably right and that's probably how the majority of us will experience it: small flurries of traffic.
But traffic is traffic, it's worth a try
The best chance of it working will be if people post topical and humorous stuff of the type normal reddit users like. Reddit is not so much about the information article--they want to be amused. If good stuff for them floats to the top, they will start subscribing to it.
Alright cool, I'll take note of that. Hopefully other people will read this too.
Thanks for the advice!
I just found this thread and followed up by testing my first link on reddit. I'm wondering, though, if our links are shared among all reddit users or mainly only in our own subreddit (the hubbub). If it can be seen by other reddit users, then I agree that hubs related to general topics may do better. But if only seen by other Hubbers, then maybe it's best to submit links to hubs about subjects that are related to success with writing online.
I've noticed a few views come through from there. I'll take them.

Hello Fellow Hubbers - A few weeks ago I posted a question to the forums asking whether any hubbers had used Reddit.com to create backlinks. Most people reported negative experiences, saying that the reddit community had reacted badly to their attempts at self promotion.It occurs to me that the...

This site has been suggested as a way to get traffic. I spent a few hours, which turned into 3 days, to figure out how to navigate it. It appears to be a site about links, not really content, but they get angry if you post links? What am I missing? I had to go on under 3 names, but I tried to leave...

I'm a moderator of at the hubhub on Reddit and we've been trying to pick the subreddit back up again. It'll be super beneficial for gaining views and stuff but also for reading hubs that you otherwise usually wouldn't. Plus, it's links to you hub on other platforms on the internet which in itself...

We could have subreddits within subreddits, we could welcome Reddit to the wonder that is the HP community! Wouldn't that be great?I mean, I know we already have forums here, and I like them because they're so friendly and clean. But think of the possibilities! What do you think?
