Reddit: Defined

Reddit was launched in 2005 and since then, it has been a growing platform for entertainment, news and social sharing. The name “Reddit” is derived from two english words- Read and Edit. Reddit’s users term themselves as Redditors which again follows the same fashion of amalgamation of words- Reddit and Editors.

Up-votes (thumbs up) and Down-votes (thumbs-down) decide ranking of your submissions in Reddit. Besides this, if your comments get upvoted, it will gain you comment karma and if your link gets upvoted, it earns you link karma. Correlatively, your link and comment karmas will acquire you more authority in Reddit and correspondingly will increase your upvotes on your link.

1. Share something interesting to gather 100 link karmas

    • You cannot post a link unless you have 100 link karmas in your Reddit account. So, share some amazing and unique images or posts which can be an instant hit amongst people. If you want to check whether your shared image is unique, you can try http://karmadecay.com/. Make sure you submit your posts in the right subreddit.  (example of shared image on Reddit needed)
    • Hence, wait for those link karmas and then you can promote your link.

2. Choose A Relevant Subreddit

One of Reddit’s most powerful features is the “subreddit.” It’s basically a topic section where users can discuss just about anything you can think of. For instance, there’s a subreddit called “Business” where users post links, text, or tidbits of business advice.
Think about who your audience is before you decide what subreddit to engage with. If you have a blog about food, the “Food” subreddit might be the perfect place for you to post relevant content. Fashion brands can leverage topics like the StreetWear subreddit, and tech companies can use the Tech subreddit. Get it? There’s a search bar on the right-hand corner of Reddit’s site where you can explore any topic of your choosing.

3. Follow the Rules — Or Be Banned

WARNING: Do not blatantly advertise on Reddit. Reddit is about the consumer, not the business. People want quality content, not advertisements. If you sell food products, blog about different things you can do with food. Post them on Reddit as advice columns and not advertisements. In this way, you won’t be banned from using the site. Keep in mind, every subreddit has its own rules, so be mindful of all of them.

4. Note What The Audience Is Already Discussing

If you’re on a subreddit called “Video Games” and you notice everyone is mostly discussing Super Mario, for example, keep this in mind when you are developing content. Speak in the “native language” and organic interests inherent on the site, or you will gain nothing from Reddit. Scroll different subreddits and note conversations by category. This will help you find patterns of quality content to discuss.
It’s vital to write content that people on Reddit will find valuable. Connect that content to your brand, but don’t do it overtly. It’s okay to link to a page on your website in a Reddit post, but don’t write an entire post about why your product is amazing.
To see who’s online, Reddit tells you how many people are currently active on a subreddit on the right-hand side of the Reddit browser.

5. Don’t Abuse The Site

Once you start seeing results, do not abuse the site. There are moderators that note activity on the platform. If they notice that you are blatantly trying to advertise or post too much, they will ban you. Click here to view Reddit’s full content policy.
In summary, there are five steps to take when utilizing Reddit to drive traffic to your website. First, find a relevant subreddit that fits your audience. Next, read the rules and regulations of that subreddit. Note what the audience on that subreddit is talking about and create your content accordingly. Post your content when users are most active. Finally, be careful when you are engaging on the site so as not to get banned for misuse.

6. One Gmail Account for all your Reddit accounts

Using different Gmail accounts for Reddit accounts can be frustrating. So, you can use this method to use a single Gmail account for all your Reddit accounts.
  • Create a Gmail account. For example:- xyz@gmail.com
  • Open reddit.com
  • While registering yourself, write xyz+1@gmail.com. Thus, you can receive every notification related to your Reddit accounts in the same inbox

7. Timing Is Key

You definitely don’t want your link to get lost in the /new section of the subreddit. So choose your timing right.
According to an infographic about “Social Timing” by KissMetrics the best time to submit your link on most social networks is before 5PM EST. This is also the time when most people are actively browsing Reddit.
8. What To Do After Submitting Your Link
Once you have submitted your link you need to make sure to monitor the comments to your submission. If people have questions about your link – give them answers. Comments not only make the link more likely to be voted up, but also give you (as the submitter) more credibility.
I hope that if you follow this guide you will be able to get a decent amount of traffic from Reddit to your blog and give your brand good exposure.
