    Getting traffic from Reddit is easy if you follow the rules properly. Link karma and comment karma are essential on Reddit.

    Step 1: Find subreddits relevant to your blog

    Step 2: Analyze how Redditors in your specific subreddits think.

    Step 3: Create an account. Then start commenting other posts without breaking the Reddit rules.

    Step 4: It’s time to create a good content.

    On Reddit, you can submit your post in the form of a link or text.

    After submission, you can get up vote or down vote depends on your content. The voting determines the rank of your post.

    Follow these things while posting on Reddit,
    • Post relevant and unique content
    • Interact with Redditors
    • Don’t over promote
    • Reply or comment to other Redditors
    Hope this helps,
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 6

    I should mainly focus on improving your content and practice with writing as much as you can. At the end of the day your content will make or break you.
    I was just wondering though, I see the snapchat logo at the bottom of your homepage, are you planning to do anything with snapchat or not? And what is your idea behind it.

    Reddit is amazing, just to add to this though you can also use Reddit alternatives which are also very good for traffic.

    Here's some reddit alternatives.
    Voat.co
    Phuks.co
    UpVoat.com
    Votable.com

    If you use all of them you can drive traffic pretty well.

    As for your site upload a thumbnail to your post, it looks boring. All I see is your article without an image. Put a photo on the smartphone you're writing about.

    Search Engine Optimization is one of particularly used to increase traffic to a site by acquiring a high-rank positioning in the Search Engine Results Page (SERP) such as Google, Search engines like yahoo and others. SEO has two methods to increase web page position in SERP called ON-Page SEO and OFF-Page SEO.
    Off-page SEO will help make your site well-known online, so you can get more exposure. With the on-page methods we can get exposure in google. But only off-page SEO methods will increase your site place in SERP.

    Applying this method, you will get proper traffic in your website hopefully :)

    Ask yourself who would want to read that article?, it's either sh*t spun and if it's original, it still sucks.

    Hi, Here are some things I think you may think to change.
    - Text size on posts is small.
    - Remove the calendar from the bottom. (why would people need to see the calendar)
    - Install a caching plugin ( Your website loads fast but you can improve that by installing a cache plugin or just adding gzip compression)
    - 2 posts is nothing, you need at least 20 posts. write your posts thinking what people are searching and what's new.
    - Use Seo plugin, I advice to use the yoast plugin. You can find it free at the download section. (I saw it a month ago)
    - The theme is nice but not the best
    - You are missing the description
    - Use Google webmaster tool
    - Use Google Analytics
    - Add your URL to google youtube and ping
    - Build Backlinks
    There is much to say, but if you do that, you are good to go

    On Page SEO refers to all the things that we do within our website such as title, description, content, image, keyword stuffing, internal linking, etc. Overall the on-page technique means structuring or building your website to be search engine friendly.

    Off-Page SEO is all about Social Media Engagement, Social Bookmarking Sites, Forum Submission, Blog Directory Submission, Article Submission, Question and Answer, Video Submission, Image Submission, Infographics Submission, Document Sharing

    Niche you choose is very heavy.
    We recommend that you choose a niche that minimal competition.
    With a quality article, you will only get the organic traffic 100-500

    Tech related niche are tough for a beginner... Politics and news has very little value in cpc I think. I think you should change the topics you write on...or stick with it, your wish... But nonetheless be sure to put up some quality content so that your site can have some purpose other than spam from a visitor's prospective.
