I love driving targeted and valuable web traffic to my blog, why? Because the more my traffic increases, the more my ads revenue increases as well. Now tell me, who wouldn’t want quality web traffic?
You know, there are two social bookmarking sites I love so much that I just can’t do without – yes, you heard me right 🙂 . These two social bookmarking sites can drive the largest amount of traffic you could think of to any blog in any niche (as long as you do them right). Still wondering the two social bookmarking sites I am talking about? They are none other than Reddit and StumbleUpon. If you have never thought of using both traffic tools before, you should consider using them now because they are your sure traffic generator :). Did I just mention stumbleUpon on this post? Hey! Hey!! We are talking about reddit today so let’s just focus on that.
Must Read: My Greatest Traffic Tip And Strategy Ever
Many bloggers today (especially the newbie) still don’t know how to get valuable traffic from reddit, and don’t be surprise when you find out some bloggers don’t even know if site like reddit exist :). In the quest of getting valuable and reasonable amount of traffic from reddit, many have tried and failed – some tried hard but still gave up at the end.
Believe it or not: Not getting positive result in what we do will eventually make us give up (true fact). But what if I tell you the main reason(s) why you’re not getting any traffic from reddit, will that change anything? I sure hope it does because in a few, I will tell you some reasons I know that you’ll find valuable, so let’s start…
Reasons you don’t get traffic from redit:
Below are the simple reasons “I can think of” (and I know) you’re committing that won’t help your blog in that arena.
√ Your post title is not catchy enough
√ Your topic does not interest the community (still the same as reason one)
√ You don’t communicate with the community. (Not active)
√ You have been ban from reddit and you don’t even know it.
The four reasons mentioned above are the main reasons why you’re not getting traffic from reddit. But on my today’s blog post I am going to show you how to know if your account has been ban/ suspended.
How To Know If You Have Been Ban From Reddit
One thing I love about reddit is the impossibility to know if your account has been suspended, if you don’t know or heard about this simple tip I’m about to show you.
Why I say that you won’t know if you have been ban: Even if your account is suspended/ ban, you will still post your links, comment on other links, vote for other member but what you do will not appear to the general public (community), it will be visible to you alone. That means, nobody will see your votes, comments or the links you dropped. In essence, all your posts, upvotes, comments, will be a waste of your precious time.
How Do You Know If Your Account Has Been Ban/ Suspended?
The process is very simple=> open a new browser or logout from reddit – now simply type “http://www.reddit.com/user/yourusernamehere” and if you see something like the image below, then you have been ban.
Why Did My Account Get Suspended?
Because you simply did not follow the rules laid down by reddit. Are you too busy to read the TOS of any site you joined? Then why join them if you don’t know what they are about?
My advice to any blogger who truly wants to get traffic from any top community sites that gives traffic; it is best to always read their TOS so you’ll know how to utilize that particular zone and bring out the best.
And What Are These Rules?

I am just going to mention the simple rules I am following that still keep me active and sharp in reddit community 🙂
√ Do not spam – posting so many links from one source per day is called spamming.
√ Do not post your link to categories that are not related to what you’re posting about
√ At least be active in the community once a week if you are on a busy schedule as me 🙂
The only way you can get traffic from reddit is if you get an upvote. Also remember that the more the upvotes, the more the exposure, the more your traffic increases.
If you can get just four upvotes, you will be surprised at the traffic you will get 🙂 .

Thought: I am trying to setup a “closed” group on Facebook based on reddit. What the group is about is vote for each others links to get more traffic from reddit. It’s going to be a 10 man group so if you are interested, do give me an inbox of your facebook username so I can add you to the group.
