    There was this member who recently left me a message on one of my posts in reddit saying that my link submission was a spam!

    And I am not even submitting too many links in a day! (Just 2-3).... Has anyone experienced this?

      Reddit members are pretty militant.  Are you bookmarking there for traffic or are you doing it for backlinks?

      If for traffic, I'm not sure I'd even bother if you are looking for Amazon/eBay sales or AdSense clicks.  Reddit traffic is notoriously crappy from a monetization standpoint.

      To answer your question though, yes - I've seen it before.  Unless you are killing them with links, ignore it and continue on.

        Yes it was primarily for traffic and backlinks. I don't know what may work so I am trying different options.

          My experience is that the traffic sucks from a conversion standpoint.  However, I still use it to help get my sites/hubs indexed quickly. 

          Digg, Mixx, Reddit, and Twitter are my four favorite sites for getting indexed quickly.  For traffic, I rely almost exclusively on organic search rankings.

            I started using Reddit pretty recently. Have been Twitter as well. Thanks for the other ideas! Will try them as well smile

      Two to three hubpages links a day?

      That would be going too hard, in my opinion.

      If you posted one or two a week and mix it up with links to other sites would be the smart way to do it.

        Oh really? 2-3 a day is supposed to be that bad! I had no idea about that. Maybe should be more careful about posting links in reddit in that case.

    Did you read their FAQ to see how they define spam?  Or their "reddiquette" guide?

    I just read both and I can easily see how submitting your own Hubs can get you branded a spammer on that site...

      Nopes I did not but now that you tell me I shall go through them.

      That's interesting though because I thought it was a site for submitting your own links. So whose links do you submit in that case?
