Is back linking through reddit a bad thing?
A long while ago I got a spike of traffic from reddit.com on one of my hubs. After checking out the site, I thought it might help increase traffic to post more of my hubs on there. However I didn't start to wonder until now if that was a bad thing. Is it being overly promotional? Could I be penalized for doing it?
Reddit is no follow. It won't give you search engine ranking. But you can get a lot of traffic from reddit itself with an interesting title. I experimented a little and I found that it also depends on when you post the link. You better post when it is evening in USA.
You can get 1 million views from reddit. Noone will penalize you for getting views from a link. And I don't think Reddit is likely to ban you or something like that for putting hubs links there. Sometimes I delete my older links and put them back under a better title and at a better time. I get like 100 views immediately.
It may not have a strong value as a back link, but reddit is definitely capable of bringing some traffic to your articles.
