Is Reddit worth it?

    Is Reddit worth it?

    Do you actually get traffic from reddit? Is it worth using?

    Reddit was created as a way for members to share and recommend interesting websites.  They take a very dim view of people using it to promote their own stuff. 

    If you have the time to become a real member of Reddit and share your recommendations of other sites, you can occasionally slip in one of your own.  Otherwise, it's not worth it because anything you do try to promote will be voted down.

      I can have my own voted up a hundred times, and still have my account blacklisted.

      Never again will the site receive a second of my time.

    No, Reddit isn't worth a second of your time.

      I haven't had a single bit of traffic from them. I wont be using it anymore It's just a waste of time

      Thanks. I won't bother signing up then.

    I have to agree that Reddit is not worth it. You may get a lot of views at first but if you check google analytics the bounce rate tends to be very high with Reddit. I quit using that site for those reasons.

      Thanks. I've deciding I'm not going to bother with it now.

      Single page sites automatically receive a high bounce rate unless the page is constantly reloaded or refreshed. It hardly applies to hubs considering they usually are only one page. That came straight from google.

      Excuse my ignorance, what is a'bounce' rate?

    4. DS Duby profile image92
      DS Dubyposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      A high bounce rate usually means the viewer didn't go past the first page of your site. Its of no consequence if your sight only has one page, but the amount of time the viewer spends on your page is important.10 second views are worthless.

    Reddit supplies 75% of my traffic, but also my harshist reviews, they can be very rude there if the wrong person disagrees with what you write. I have never been blacklisted you have to make sure you put your articles in the correct subreddits and write quality stuff and you will do fine. They are certainly a bit immature in some ways but I deal with it because I do get a lot of good feedback as well, and a lot of hits. over 1000 in the last week.

      Does the traffic die out after a week or so?

    2. DS Duby profile image92
      DS Dubyposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      it slows down but doesn't  die out, but then you can't rely on any single hub to make all yopur money and you cant rely on any one site to market those hubs. I use reddit, pinterest, stumbleupon, facebook, digg, and  twitter to promote my work.

    It wasn't worth it for me. I tried it briefly at the beginning of my Hubbing adventures and was getting zero traffic from it so I gave up.

    My experience with reddit... good and bad!

    The very first time I put an article on reddit it got over 1000 hits on 1 hub in a few hours. The second article I put on there got about half of the first one... the third about 200 hits in a few hours.

    Now it's less than that for each article! I think it depends on what type of article it is...where you put it at in subreddits and the time you put it in there!

    You win some and you lose some! So yeah it's worth it for the most part!

    I would recommend reddit... because you could get quite a few hits like I did!
