What is reddit? We can increase the traffic of Hubpages through it?

Updated on April 24, 2008

According to their wiki, Reddit (also reddit) is a social news website on which users can post links to content on the web. Other users may then vote the posted links up or down, causing them to appear more or less prominently on the Reddit home page.

The site has discussion areas in which users may discuss the posted links and vote for or against others' comments. When there are enough votes against a given comment, it will not be displayed by default, although a reader can display it through a link or preference. Users who submit articles which other users like and subsequently "vote up" receive "karma" points as a reward for submitting interesting articles.

Reddit also includes several topical sections called "subreddits", which focus on specific topics, such as programming, science, "Not Safe for Work", and politics. There are dozens of subreddits.[1]

The Reddit logo changes for various holidays and often for no reason, paying homage to Star Wars, classic video games, and geek culture in general.

Although Reddit is not moderated by its owners, the Reddit developers have built a system to aid with curtailing spam, which works based on the "reports" of users.

It is similar to Digg and other social bookmarking sites where users link to content they like.

By Linking at reddit, you could indeed send other traffic to your hubs
