    Hey,

    So i made an movie news related autoblog and thought of sharing a post of the same on reddit, little did i knew that it will get on the frontpage of sub reddit. Later i got mail from the server company saying huge increase in load on the server due to very high traffic.

    I think i am gone use reddit to wisely drive trafffic on my autoblogs.
    Anybody else having experince in driving traffic from reddit on autoblogs??

    Thanks

    I was using shared hosting just to start of things, never knew reddit would make me upgrade it so quickly...
    I think it was more due to high load on the server due to which i got the mail.

    Thanks

    There are already many threads explaining how they were able to drive hundred thousand visitors in a day through reddit etcetera...

    So yeah, reddit quality traffic is a real thing.

    Found your site, you get very lucky man. Reddit is very finnicky. How much revenue did it generate? I have always wondered what the traffic from reddit is worth.

    It was not the featured post but was on 10th to 15th position for good amount of time and got around 5k-6k hits from that single post.

    Thanks

    Did you share only one post? How did your post get featured?
