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.

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good for us all to know what changes brought about your renewal of traffic, since...

I'm currently working on a research hub on price discrepancies on shopping sites. Now you can imagine what the problem is. I have to post links. I'm afraid that Hubpages is going to categorize my hub as being too promotional and won't approve it because of the amount of links I'm going to be...
