Are we friends now, Reddit?

    After finally figuring out this category thing, Reddit and I are on speaking terms. In fact, I've gotten almost two thousand views today thanks to Reddit. Utilizing the Harry Potter sub-Reddit was the most brilliant idea I've ever had.

    Is anyone else getting good results from Reddit? What categories seem to be the most traffic-inducing for you?

      The problem with Reddit is the effects are temporary and rarely lasts more than 48 hours.

        I guess, because I'm new here on HubPages, that even if the side effects only last for forty eight hours, watching one article get a thousand views in a day pretty much pumps me up. It'll be sad to see those results go away. ):

      Reddit is sort of like Digg. You submit your link, pick a category and voila.

      Use the search bar on the right.

      When you submit a link you'll see the words "reddit.com" below the link section. Delete that and then start typing what category you think your hub will fall under. I ended up having to look up how to use Reddit before I started having any luck with it. I didn't even know categories existed until two days ago.

        They're called subreddits

        Finding the right one means more readers. The main one gets too much traffic.

    And many Reddit topic editors kill links to HubPages, knowing it's mostly authors just trying to get traffic.
