Some bloggers, well, not some but most of the bloggers become victim of spamming the internet with their links everywhere.
You have to stop all this because spamming is not going to work for you.
What if I tell you that there is a technique to drive massive traffic with just posting one link and not spamming everywhere? Well, you guessed it. It’s Reddit that can drive you floods of traffic. But for bringing massive traffic, it’s not just like post the link and bingo here is your traffic. Instead you have to follow some decent techniques to get started with Reddit.
8 Techniques to Get Massive Traffic From Reddit
1. Take a look on your Profile
First of all, you must check out your Reddit profile. Making an account on Reddit is just like piece of cake. After making an account, go to your profile. On the right sidebar you will see two Karma terms. One is link karma and other one is comment karma.
Comment Karma is not that much important for us. However, link karma is very important for your profile. Because it helps you get the most upvotes on your link which ultimately helps your blog to get more traffic from Reddit.
Why Link Karma is important? Simple answer, link karma is important because it helps your profile to be seen by more people. More people equals more votes. And more votes, yes you guessed it. More votes means more traffic.
How to increase link karma? So I just said that link karma is very important to have more upvotes on your link. But the thing that would be popping into your mind would be that How to increase it? Don’t worry! Its not like climbing Mount Everest. Few steps below to increase your karma are:
Post Memes, comics, wallpaper Memes, comics and wallpapers are the most liked things on Reddit. They get huge upvotes. If they are good then in no time they are on front page of Reddit. When you will get upvotes, your Link karma will definitely increase and will get a sudden boost. But memes, comics or wallpapers must be hilarious except wallpapers.
Note: Memes, comics and wallpapers must be directly linked to the image. For example, imgur.com/sda344.jpg
Plus finding memes, comics and wallpapers are not that hard to find. You can easily find them out on imgur.com or cheezburger.com or any one of your favorite site can do it for you. Your karma must be above 250 when you start posting links of your blog.
So this was the only one step to gain huge upvotes.

Before explaining I will tell you first about Sub Reddits. Sub Reddits are just categories of Reddit which users use to find the link they are looking for.
So the link you post, must be in relevant sub reddit. Health post must be in Health sub reddit. If you post tech link in health sub reddit then I am 100% sure that you are going to get your account banned. Because moderators on Reddit are more clever than you.
If you don’t know that how to find relevant sub reddit for your link than follow these steps.
Go to Reddit Homepage. In the right sidebar, there would be a search option.
Search any keyword relevant to your link post.
Different posted links will come up. Now check that in which sub reddit they are posted.
Now go to that sub reddit and submit your link there.
You should also check the number of subscribers the particular sub reddit, more the number of subscribers, the more upvotes and traffic you will get.
4. Don’t only post your blogs links
If you are making up your mind to post only your links after getting good karma then please don’t do that! Only posting your link can get your account noticed and ultimately banned.

5. Don’t post too much
Posting too much may often lead your account to a ban. So keep your posting frequency 2 to 3 per day. And these 2 to 3 link posts must be done after several time period. Reddit will not also let you to post the more than 1 link on the same time.
6. Don’t spam your blogs with Ads and popup
Ok, its good to have 2 to 3 ads on one page of your blog because if you are making a blog than probably have made it for earning. But if you have more than 2 to 3 ads on your one page of blog then you are ruining yourself.
Spamming your blog with ads will also hurt the referral traffic coming from Reddit. And when you will hurt them, they will ultimately hurt you by downvoting your link post (Reducing your link karma).
7. Get a good web host server
Getting a good web hosting is also necessary for you because if your server load time is too slow than users may close your blog without even reading it. And if they will not read your blog post, then there is no benefit for you.
Plus, there are sometimes when your blog may flooded with traffic from Reddit. In case, you have not a good web server then due to too much users, your server will go down.
8. Post on perfect time
You should post your link on time on which there are a lot of users using the internet. According to surveys, posting before 5PM EST is the best time to post as it will help you to get your post reach to the most people.
