    I'd really like to start using Reddit for marketing my niche sites. By this I mean via Whitehat methods, not spamming or using bots.

    What are the big dos and donts of posting on Reddit?

    (Note: I know this has generally been asked here on the forum already and you and I both hate redundant posts, but none of them are very clear.)

    Thanks!

    Not paying someone else for reddit posts is my best answer. I have found when outsourcing links of this nature they nearly all get deleted.

    Another thing is be indirect. Write a top notch article and instead of saying "hey check out this site" write something related to article but indirect about the site.

    For instance a title could be "Beached whale explodes on camera" compared to "check out www.blahblah to see a whale explode. "

    Misdirection is the key to awesome reddit traffic. You get one title to hook someone so take your time and brainstorm. 90% of reddit users are not like the 90% of traffic you get to your website. They are just as nerdy and repulsed by stupid content as we are.

    Thanks for the tips. And like I said, I only intend to use white hat methods anyway.
