Reddit.com has become immensely popular over the past several months. More and more people everyday are claiming to use reddit more than any other social bookmarking site, even more than Digg. Digg used to be a great site that you could post links to and easily get 100’s or even 1000’s of hits to your website from, but that was a very a long time ago. Yes, it seems as though the members of Digg that control which articles hit the front page and which articles get buried into oblivion, have abused their power a little too much, and it has cost the site a lot of members that have switched to the more user-friendly reddit.
Getting lots of traffic to your site by using reddit is extremely easy. I mean, really, really easy. Submitting links to reddit is a very great way to boost your sites traffic and rankings. As long as you have a website or a blog with some content and links you can submit, half the job of using reddit to get traffic is already done. The only thing you have to do now is create an account (which is free and takes only a few seconds) and start submitting links. Here are a couple tips you can use to get the most traffic to your site by means of submitting links to reddit.com.
Make Up a Good Title: Reddit.com them self actually facetiously suggests that you make up a “deceptive” title when you submit a link. I’ve found that very long titles work much better than short catchy titles. People zip right past the snappy, four or five word titles, but the long titles always get the best of their curiosity. For example, a bad title would be, “Make lots of Money Online!” It’s too generic. It sounds cheap and spammy and people have seen titles like that a million times over. Here’s a better version of that title, “Oh my god I can’t believe how much money I am making! Haha. This is so easy it’s stupid!” That’s a title people will want to click on just out of curiosity. Apply this method to any link you submit.
Pictures and Videos do Very Well: What can I say, people like looking at stuff better than reading. Oh well. Use this to your advantage. Even if you don’t have a site or blog that hosts pictures or videos, but you still want to use this method to get lots of traffic, just find a funny video that is very popular on Youtube, and embed the video in a blog post on your site. Now write a short paragraph about and submit your link to reddit with a long, enticing title. Now just sit back and watch the hits roll in. How much easier could this be.
