bring reddit traffic to your blog

In the past recent posts, I have been notifying you about different ways and techniques of driving significant amount of traffic for your blog/website. Today I will try my best to educate you guys on the effective use of reddit, which will help you drive massive traffic to your website.

It is important to be educated on how to use reddit effectively as any wrong step in the marketing process can transform into a heavy penalty. The penalty would not just be in the form of time and money wastage, as in the case of Tumblr and Pinterest,  infact you will become the subject to mocking, laughter and being flagged as spam to eventually get driven out.

So now what ? The risk involved seems to be a good enough obstacle then why should the marketers take the risk and drive traffic to their website with reddit?

Why Use Reddit To Market?

As much as the risk seems to be bulky, the pros of successfully driving massive traffic are equally heavy. Reddit is reported to serve more then 2 billion page views inside a month, which shows great potential to drive enormous traffic to your website, even if you barely make it on the front page of a small subreddit that only has 20,000 readers.

You won't need , like too much of upvotes to gain traffic. There are clients who have reported to receive huge traffics on 54 votes and 92 votes on a subreddit with 61000 and 30,000 readers respectively.

All you need to know is what content to give the community to read, and you shall make it to the front page with the right submission.

What Does Reddit Provide?

The Reddit falls into some distinct categories. Here are some of the famous subreddits that will give an idea of the reddit website is about.

1) TIL - It stands for 'Today I Learned'. Here is an example,  “TIL that after Germany surrendered in WWII, everyone in Moscow partied until the entire city actually ran out of vodka.”

2) IAMA - IAMA stands for "I am a". In this section of the reddit, people in the reddit community can ask different questions from experts and people with unique experiences.

3) Askreddit - This sub-section of the website will provide a forum for questions that relate to reddit in one way or the other.

4) Fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu - Keeping in mind that the community likes a hybrid of humor with cheezy sarcasm and geeky stuff, this section is devoted to comics which will be an entertainment to the readers.

You also need to take care of the kind of sub-reddit. Narrow sub-reddit will not be much of a help because they generate less traffic. The broader your sub-reddit is, the more exposure you will be receiving. An example of a narrow sub-reddit will be 'SEO' because reddit community does not admire this genre of content.

Submission Details : How To?

This is perhaps the easiest step. Firstly you need to create a reddit account in order to proceed. There are two options that you can choose between. First is creating an anonymous account, which is recommended for testing purposes only, and the second is creating a legit account handler, where your identity will obviously be reflected with your posts, if they manage to get on the front page. The latter is obviously important in terms of building credibility.

After that you have established an account, begin with clicking on the submit button that will look like as shown below.

Title - This is an important part. If you are a blogger, you might already know how crucial is the blog article's title. As Reddit users zoom through their feeds looking for only the most interesting and strange content.

URL - An important tip that you need to keep in your mind is never to use softwares or sites that trim your actual URL. Tiny URLs are often used to hide a spam or infected executable files behind them. So if you plan on trimming or shortening it down, the credibility with your posts will dramatically go down.

Choose A Subreddit - Making a little bit of search to get acquainted with different subreddits is better to land on a safe side. Choose a subreddit that has readers more then 20,000. A wrong choice will have a direct impact on the post exposure.

As mentioned earlier, keep in mind that humor, intelligence and sarcasm are loved on reddit. So try and produce more of that genre.

What To Avoid On Reddit

When working on reddit, you need to be careful with your actions from the marketing point of view. Avoid using auto submission with the posts. It is preferred posting manually as readers on reddit will rule out any posts that will be automatically generated. Also keep in mind that reddit users dislike being lazy, so re-posting the old articles is not recommended.
Submit too many posts from a single URL to a single subreddit will be an attempt to trick the reddit and the moderators will eventually find out. The consequences  will surely be not in your favor. 

Avoid spamming with the posts. Try to be flexible with whatever you are posting. Always posting something that just promotes yourself, your articles or your products can lead to a failure in reddit. 

A right way to work with reddit is keeping the balance of your content and what the community wants to read. If you perform any of the above blunders more then a very few times, your domain can get kicked off.

Submission : What To?

Here are a few ideas of making worthwhile submissions on Reddit. As we have already mentioned in this post above, that try to share content that is funny and filled with humor or sarcasm as that best suits the reddit community's nature. 

1) Interviews - You show some innovation by actually hosting an interview on a subreddit like /r/IAMA, or the other thing you can do is sharing the link of an interesting interview that corresponds to the nature of the reddit community.

2) Videos - You can look around on different subreddits, with great number of readers ofcourse, to know the pattern and genre of the videos being shared. You will eventually find out that just plain funny videos work good enough in /r/videos.
3) Queries - You cal look upto the related subreddit and check out what kind of questions are generating higher number of comments. You can easily study the pattern closely and place questions that correspond to your study over it.
4) Drawing - You can share any illustration that is humorous or involves the element of sarcasm. Such content can be dropped to /r/comics , as this will be a best suitable subreddit.

Submission Details - When To?

Schedule of the posts is what matters when you are working on reddit. There are others things that can affect the ranking of whatever you post. For example, getting 100 upvotes in the first hour will count more than if you get 100 votes in 10 hours.

Also keep in mind that there needs to be maintained a good ratio between the upvotes and the downvotes. A post that has a lot of upvotes as well as a significant amount votes will still not be ranked as a good one. 

The impact increases in a geometric series. the first 10 upvotes have has much impact as the next 100, which have the same impact as the following 1,000.

You can also Buy ads to drive traffic in Reddit. You can custom select between ads that show up across all reddit and ads that show up on certain targeted subreddits. An advantage of buying an ad will be the insight that you gain about the product apart from the traffic. 

All in all reddit is definitely a great and recommended tool to keep in your SEO toolbox along with a combination of Twitter, Facebook and other social media. Together they can generate heavy traffic to your website. Don't forget to share your experience with reddit in the comments section.
