    Wow! Yesterday was one of my biggest days in terms of visitors, i posted a link on Reddit to a story on my blog which has google adsense correctly placed and received over 3000 visitors.

    And from 3,343 pageviews to my Adsense Ads i got one click which made absolutely nothing.

    Really disappointed but at least it shows i can get visitors with some decent and up to date content.

    sounds about right for reddit. Everyone uses adblock.

    Reddit audience is very technically savvy and most of them use AdBlock anyway.

    Use Reddit to build up an audience, not drive revenue.

    Their users are very web savvy and pretty much 100% adblind. So this does not come as a surprise. The same thing with stumbleupon traffic.

    Not the right kind of traffic for adsense, brota. Find a dumber audience in dumb niches attracting the non-savvy kind if you wanna make bank with adsense. HTH!

    as everyone said reddit is too savvy. if your model is adsense revenue then reddit alone will not get you there. try other sources of traffic like doing organic seo to drive search traffic.

    Thanks for the replies guys. First time anything has ever took off with Reddit, so didn't know what to expect.

    Stands to reason that the traffic is ad blind with them stats. Won't expect anything special from them visitors in the future.
