    I noticed that I don't get any traffic from reddit, not even 10 visitors. I am active on reddit, up-down votes, commenting etc, submitting links to other sites beside my own.
    I submitted a link to a sub-reddit, then I logged out and went to that sub-reddit under "new" and my site wasn't there.
    Again, I submitted a comment, logged out and went to see it, it wasn't there. it said that that link had 1 comment but it didn't show it anywhere. My reddit account is 4 months old and I verified my email, I have a lot of comments and a quarter of the amount of comments I have are sites. I have no idea what to do.

    Should I contact reddit and tell them about my problem or what? I know I miss on a lot of traffic.

    Thanks.

    Reddit is paranoid about people that actually post stuff. You are probably being ghosted, or whatever the correct Reddit term is.

    Try creating a new account and posting your link in ToR dude :)

    Not that I know of. I'm not a reddit expert though. I just know Tor works well in these situations.

    Reddit is a strange place to be. Its like the garden into hell. Its a mob, and to gain something in there you need to know someone that know someone...etc etc etc

    Do one thing wrong and the mob will turn against you. The typical redditer is a big fat man sitting in the underwear swetting like a pig, eating pizza, dripping cheese onto the keyboard, and he laugs like a big huge fat pig.

    Nahh, thats just my experience for when I was there few days, some years ago. Maybe it has changed :) Good luck :)

    I know reddit is like any other community online. This is a pain. I still have a reddit under a different name but I stopped using it because its user name was different from the one I used for business.

    I contacted reddit support and they said that I had submitted too many links to one domain and that some users have flagged me as spam. I guess I'll start all over again.

    Your URLs have probably been flagged too and depending on the Subreddit you were posting in, will probably be automatically filtered out.

    You may have to rethink your approach.

    I deleted my reddit account and now I'll wait a week or so before creating a new one with a different email. My IP changes every 24 hours, that I noticed. The provider does it so I think I'll be fine.

    When ***** became too ghey, Reddit was born.

    Place is full of scum who don't want to give ANY social bookmarking link juice no matter how fair you play. Forget about it. Lots more sites to give content to.


    EDIT: Wow... BHW *'d out four chan...

    If your post provides a real value to a given subreddit and it doesn't show up, you should contact mod of that subreddit.
    A lot of links are marked as spam by overzealous reddit anti-spam filter.
