    How do You Get Traffic From Reddit to Your Hubs? Anyone doing this successfully?

    Once you've registered you can click on the 'Submit a link' button on the home page.You'll then be brought to a form where you can submit a link (that's what you'll want for traffic) or text.Then enter a title, the url for your link and choose a category or what's know as a 'subreddit' for where you'd like your link to go.This last step is the most important in my experience.Finding the right subreddit seems to be crucial in whether or not you'll get any traffic from reddit.If you don't know what subreddit you are looking for just try typing different words that relate to the subject matter of your link into the 'choose a subreddit field' and you'll see drop down options that might match.

    In terms of success it seems very hit and miss.You'll often post a link and get zero traffic in return but occassionally you may get a spike of dozens or even hundreds of hits from reddit although the spike and traffic drops off quickly and usually disappears altogether within 2 or 3 days at most.I'm not sure if being very active within the reddit community helps much as i've not done this. Some hubbers have reported hostility from hardocre reddit members who don't appreciate hubbers posting links there.

    Don't try to post more than a couple of links every day or two as the system will lock you out.They also don't appreciate repeat posting of the same links.It is quick though so i'll usually post a link to a new hub etc. once or maybe twice (seperated by a day or two) if i'm not sure on the best subreddit to choose.Usually i'll get zip but occassionaly i've gotten some decent if fleeting spikes from reddit so it's worth the few seconds it takes to submit.

    I have found this is a real waste of time and do not even go back to this site anymore. I tried to post in the correct subreddit and I am not sure if it is because I am posting from Brazil and from a very slow ISP, but, when I try to post there is always an incorrect captcha, and when I ask them to update it a message comes on to my screen "you seem to be posting a lot here lately, try again in an hour" but if I try it again the same message comes on my screen. It happened every day I tried. (Maybe you will have more luck posting from Kenya, but if you keep getting the message do not be surprised.)
    I thought maybe Reddit consider my posts too spammy, so I went on the dog subreddit to answer questions, registered, etc, but the same thing keeps happening.
    Every day I get visitors from stumbleupon, from pinterest, and from search engines like google and yahoo--I have never had one visitor from reddit and am not going to waste time there anymore.

      you just need to confirm your email address with reddit. I had the same problem at first

      I did confirm my email address. That is not the problem.

      Being active on reddit does build Karma (i think thats what they call it) which may allow you to post more frequently.The site can become very frustrating if they deem you to have posted too often.Post a few comments & try again in a few days.

    To be successful with any of these sites, you need to build up a following and be actively involved. I'm currently building up a following on Twitter. It's time consuming to find people to follow and to find things to tweet about. I also set up an account with but I haven't done much with it yet. I want to focus on a couple of sites and try to get as many followers as I can. But it does require some time every day.

    Yeah i did for a few days, but it didn't last, to be honest, I know how to get it if I want it, essentially you need to lie. the problem with using reddit is that some people do not like clicking off of the actual website.

    The most traffic I ever got was from Reddit was the first time I ever used it. I posted links to 3 hubs and the next day I had 1000 hits, I was not generally getting more than 100 a day at that time. So, you can get significant traffic from it. It slowed gradually over the next week, but occasionally I still get a hit or two from Reddit, even though I haven't been posting there in a long time.

    My later efforts were not as successful, and often the hubs will be trapped in their spam filter, and you don't know it unless you go and look at recent posts and see that your post is not there.

    I was just posting my hubs by their titles, but someone else here suggested that if you say something clever, and post your link, you're more likely to escape the wrath of the spam filter.

    None of my hubs even showed up in search. I think they were blocked by a spam blocker. Stumbleupon works a lot better for me, but it is inconsistent.
