    I've largely overlooked Reddit over the years but am now interested in getting into for in order to see if it can generate me some niche traffic. I've read up around here and it seems that between posting click bait and gaming the upvote system its possible to get some fairly respectable visits from it.

    I wanted to see if any of you know of any blackhat tools or guides to help game Reddit. I've already checked out IndianBill's software but would like to know when else in the way of programs and methods you've seen.

    Thanks,

    Reddit is very tough and will eat you alive at any self promotion, but if you get to the front page you receive massive targeted traffic (front page of a 50k sub is minimum 5k visits...imagine a 7,000,000 sub).

    Reddit from my experience is a good example of the bandwagon effect. They usually Upvote things already upvoted by others, and post "witty" comments trying to receive upvotes.

    There really isn't a secret to reddit. The most important thing is you need good content. Doesn't matter how many upvotes you buy. It you have promotional content you will either get banned by the subreddit or eaten alive by the users.

    Typically 100 upvotes is enough to show up on the front page of any 50k-70k sub for a good 12 hours.

    Reddit is great but I would be careful, you do need quality posts along with decent upvotes spread over perhaps 20 minutes - an hour. You want to avoid posts with 100+ upvotes and 0 comments, so try to grow post organically

    So content and dripfeeding are pretty key it sounds, right? Are those tools and bots being sold very useful or are they purely for slash and burn Reddit campaigns that you know will get banned?

    You just need to get upvotes to your posts. Or pay someone with big account to post your link.

    The bots are a waste of time imo. The only thing you need is great content and a bit of upvotes to gain the initial publicity. Users will naturally comment and upvote if the content is good.

    Crap, sounds like I'll have to hand write the content myself then. Thanks for the tips guys. Appreciate the insight a ton.

    There's a lot of Reddit white knights looking for any shred of evidence it's a plant or faked to downvote or report you. They take their subreddits pretty serious, so ya, make it useful unless you have an amazing new product you can ask for opinions on it or something. If you go to a good related subreddit and make it, useful, entertaining or informative it should be good. I would get some accounts to manually upvote to get it started though.

    Just post only In 50k subs.
    Buy 15 up votes or maybe go in a reddit exchange group.

    Question, how well does Reddit traffic actually "convert" on anything besides Adsense and ad-based conversions? I don't suppose the traffic does much to e-commerce sites does it?

    If you have great content which is relevant to your niche but not promotional, and given you know how to get those with AGED accounts, you're in the game. Software is not the best aid, though.

    I think you have it mixed up. Reddit has one of the worst ad based conversions as most users have adblock. Heck, they are even mad at Reddit admins for the "invasive" ads (they really aren't invasive at all).

    However If you have a good product many people will convert. It's one of the best place to get targeted leads. For example, Reddit users eat up products made by kids or gofundme's.
