    DISCLAIMER: You can use the tools used in this guide/method or you can do everything manually or do it however you want. However, using the tool can allow you to automate a ton of work as well as save you a lot more time. As you scale up your projects, it is better to use an automated tool, whether it be the tool I used or a tool you use since time=money when it comes to scaling. Remember, I am trying to give you guys a method, not sell a product.

    I have read a ton of guides on BHW before on ranking a site/YouTube video and saw that most of these required social signals, something that almost ways will require money unless you own your own network of bots and accounts. As you cannot manually get thousands of visits from Twitter, the only option was to buy a Fiverr gig or a service on BHW that would provide this for you.

    This is why I went out and found a method that works as of now and would probably work for some time as long as this site maintains its high traffic and engagement. This is a FREE method and requires NO INVESTMENT on your part if you don’t want to.

    What is our Goal?

    1. To Get Social Signals to boost our site

    2. Traffic/Visitors from Social Media

    What will we Accomplish

    1. Get Social Signals for free

    2. Get Extra Traffic from Social Networking Sites/Real People, not bots

    3. Some conversions from the traffic, ad clicks, ecommerce product purchases, leads, etc

    Tools/Resources:

    1. Common Sense

    2. Creativity (Optional: P)

    3. RedditDominator (Hint/Optional)

    4. Reddit Account

    5. Website

    6. Proxies (Optional)

    Guide:

    So for this guide, we will be using the platform, Reddit, because it has a very high engagement rate as well as high traffic. This will let us get conversations going for our site as well as get us traffic and social signals that aren’t just botted and will give us some opportunities for some leads as well.

    Proxies/RedditDominator is optional because you don’t really need this to make this work.

    1. You want to prepare your page/post that you want to have social signals going towards. If this is a YouTube video, then you want to make sure that this is made first before you do anything else. Articles or Videos that are highly engaging and have a “viral” theme to it will help boost your conversions/hits/conversation so this is highly important. Writing or Producing Reddit targeted articles/videos will take time so don’t feel discouraged if it doesn’t work when you first do it.

    Keep doing it as the reward is amazing.

    2. Go on Reddit and find a subreddit that is in your niche. You want to make sure that the rules of the subreddit allow links from third party websites and not just Imgur. Make sure that the subreddit is worth posting in with a lot of active users and not a blank subreddit. If the subreddit is too big, you won’t get noticed so don’t bother unless you have a high karma account. Choose a medium sized subreddit and create your post there with a click bait title and interesting featured image.

    3. Once posting is done, boot up RedditDominator (if you don’t have the tool, you’re done) and start driving upvotes to your post. I recommend 5-10 upvotes for a medium sized subreddit and around 30-50 upvotes for a big subreddit.

    4. If you really want to get on the homepage, even for a short amount of time, drive at least 50 in a really short amount of time, make the waiting time just a few seconds, and get the home page.

    5. Note that it is also important that you will get banned from the subreddit/reddit if you do this constantly, so make sure to read up on the subreddit rules to make sure you stay within the rules of the sub.

    If you are looking for another option if you want to provide upvotes to your post but don’t want to spend money, then I highly suggest finding an active upvote group. All you have to do is keep active and upvote others on the subreddit as well as post your link regularly and ask for upvotes. This won’t bring as much traffic/upvotes than having your own program with your own accounts upvoting whenever you want to but it will give you some free upvotes to work with.

    From what I have experienced, if you get into the HOT section of a med/high subreddit, you can get around 5-20k unique hits to your page which will get you traffic/conversions/social signals that are real and not made by bots.

    This method is also beneficial in the long run if you want to save money because proxies/bot will be a lot cheaper than having to purchase a lot of gigs instead. Since the bot will only cost $4.99 and proxies will only cost $12, you can definitely save a lot more if you manage a lot of sites or want to do this for your clients regularly.

    Feel free to ask questions or bash on me if you see a problem with this method. I would love to see what’s wrong with my method so that I can fix it and not make others lose money because of something wrong with the method. As I wanted to share something that worked for me in the past, I don’t want to ruin someone’s experience because of something I missed.

    If you have some questions about writing articles that are designed to be reddit friendly, then ask here in this thread as I have some experience in writing articles that reddit users love and click. Also note that if you really want to scale this operation up to larger subreddits, than I highly suggest the redditdominator tool as it will save you a lot of time and make you more efficient.

    Never thought of using Reddit for social signals, nice. An addition to anyone reading this guide:

    The best way to use Reddit, as I find, is to do posts on each subreddit for about 3 months - maybe 5 to 10 a day. After three months that leaves you about 450 to 900 posts. These have to be high quality, and you want to become a recognised contributor to the community. Then, when you post a link to your website, you are much more trusted - you have more social capital than a newbie whose first post was to their website. That way this way of using Reddit is sustainable.

    If you start spamming your links on a subreddit for a period of time, your profile will get banned from that place for sure but your link might get banned. So as the guy I quoted says, you want to make sure that you gain credibility and people start noticing you on that subreddit so that once you start posting your links, it will look credible since the "trusted" member is posting them.

    It's the same as BHW guys, you won't take a download link from a guy with 1 posts but you would from an Executive VIP.

    Sorry, don't see the edit button now. I'll keep it in mind for future methods as I have a bit more coming up.

    I recommend indianbill tools, since they can work well with bulk accounts to provide you with the social signals you will need.
