Have you ever felt like just kicking yourself in the tale over things you've done... Or more to the point... The things you "Didn't Do" !?! I've had a chance to use "Reddit" for a very long time now... I actually had it on one of my "To Do" lists, but sometimes you get so caught up in all the things you want to do, some of those things you need to do just never get done.
I used Reddit for the first time just to see if I could see a measurable increase in traffic to one of my articles "The Tale of Two Trees" that I wrote a couple of weeks ago but just never received the traffic I had hoped it would. Believe it or not, Reddit increased my traffic to this article 5 times what I had received in the previous two weeks, and it only took 10 hours !!! Although I am very happy for the increase in traffic, I am also sitting around kicking myself in the tale for not using this asset sooner...
If you have any similar tales of "self destructive" behavior for not doing all you could to promote your articles, I would love to hear about them...
I guess many here would see it as self-destructive that I don't socially bookmark anything I write here at all.
I use reddit also. I do get initial traffic after sharing there. Usually drops off, but have had a few that come back on certain hubs.
As other social bookmarking sites, reddit users almost never click on ads. Waste of effort in that sense. Yet you get some backlinks until you overdo it and get banned for spamming
I've just been trying to increase my traffic stats on all levels... I write for several different sites that pay me for my page views, so the more traffic I can create the more profit I make. I have enough material to post a different link a day for the next year because I am constantly publishing on one site or another 7 days a week !!! I was just impressed at how simple the traffic was to track using HubPages Tracking system to give me the information I needed in the shortest amount of time...

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...

Just wondering how many views the average person gets in total. I know it depends on how long you've been here and how many articles you have posted and stuff but just wondering. I have 25 listed as my views in the last...

I am trying new ways to drive traffic and I read that adding your articles to reddit may help. Unfortunately, I do not understand reddit. Is it worth getting in to?

I receive practically no traffic from these bookmarking sites, and Pinterest isn't much better. Learnist however generates loads of traffic.

Well, I hope I am posting this in the right spot. I've been on Hubpages now a little over 3 months, and am enjoying it thoroughly, all the writers here have been great. I have done a lot of research on increasing...

I got some immediate traffic from Delicious. Any luck with the others? There are so many on there that I've overwhelmed. I don't know how to find out about all of them.
