    Hey guy's ive been looking at reddit advertisment and was wondering if its a good idea im doing a video for youtube which i believe would be like a lot, and i wanna get it known quickly like on reddit facebook etc and i saw that on reddit you can get on the top of the page if you advertise and i was extremely excited. But the thing that got me is for only 40.00 dollars they give you 66,000 impressions..? isnt that a bit cheap for 66 thousand people? Or am i getting tricked i was really curious what does the "impression" stand for does it mean clicks?

    Impressions are just people who possibly see the ad, not click on it. This should help you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cost_per_impression

    Yeah, I am also considering Reddit advertising. Although I am not quite sure if they will let 'game hack' niche fly. I am interested in this because you can pick each sub-reddit you want to advertise on, which there are tens of thousands! Any input?

    From what I've seen on Reddit, the advertisements are mostly poorly received. It seems like it is the "Reddit-culture" standard to downvote these sponsored links. However, I often ignore the highlighted link at the top, so I'm really just basing my assessment on the select few that I've noticed and I may be way off.

    It would be a cool experiment either way. I'd definitely like to hear how it turns out if you choose to do it!

    True for most ads, although I have seen a few with high upvotes and lots of positive comments. The only one I can remember off the top of my head is the ad for thisiswhyimbroke.com, it had a witty 'reddit-style' title and the guy was answering questions that people asked as well.

    So it can work, but you have to be smart about it

    Well, if I pay $5 for 6,666 impressions - if I get 5-7 downloads I will make my money back. It is worth a try I guess!

    Yeah, it was marked 'NSFW' as in 'not safe for wallet'. Most likely one of the more well know ads on Reddit.
