Reddit and Traffic.

    I'm now obsessed with driving traffic to my hubs-but I'm basically an idiot on all things "internet."  I just create hubs. . . .that's what I know how to do.

    Here's the deal:  I was getting, for me, HUGE traffic from reddit. . . . .and now I don't seem to be getting anything from them.  WTF happened?

    Would creating a new reddit account do any good?  what?

    Any and all help appreciated.

      I experience the same results. I will get 600+ reddit views the first day i post then literally 0 for months. It is because when you post it to the topic Reddit asks for it shows up on the front page of that subjects article list and will usually be up there for a day, therefore giving it the traffic it may get for a short period of time.

      I have only had a few hubs that consistently get traffic from there and it is maybe 1-2 a day after the original 100-600 first day.

      Don't create a new account. It is just how Reddit works.

        100 to 600 views is still pretty good!!

    It is good for a backlink and not much else.

    Related to Reddit: I have submitted about 6 links to there, but have got no more than two views on anything I have submitted. I don't know if there is anything I can do to make my hub more appealing, or if it's just that my subjects aren't of interest to Reddit numbers. I guess I need to look at yours, Wesman Todd Shaw, to see what kind of hubs are getting that kind of traffic! smile

      I've figured it out.  It's simple-anything that is posted in "politics" and is "liberal" in nature..  will be a hit on reddit.

      I got nearly 3000 hits with a hub about Monsanto there.

      Other times.. . . .it's a crap shoot. Something might take off, or not.

      do something political and liberal-and it'll be a hit on reddit.  anything else, who knows?

    Reddit can be good for short spikes in traffic but they never click so what's the point?
    I once had a popular hub there (it came under 'environment') and all it did was mess my stats up with a stupid out of place spike on the graph.
    Still...it was quite exciting at the time...
    I hardly ever post to reddit now , by the way. I'd rather have real search engine traffic.
