Hello guys,

Today I would like to tell you about the potential of reddit + adsense and some tips & tricks. I have thought about using $$$ in the title, because that is what everyone is looking for. Just remember, it’s all up to you. You can make just $100 or $100 000 a month, or nothing at all. It’s all up to you, your dedication and your skills.

The Traffic

According to similar web, reddit is 36th most visited website in the world with 40% of the traffic coming from the US. Reddit receives monthly 1.7 BILLION traffic. As many of you know, US traffic has the highest CPC in Adsense.

Niche

I will exactly tell you which niches bring easy traffic and money. It is „Technology“, „Cryptocurrencies“, „Political news“, „Uplifting news“.

Age

Age is very important. Both the website you are going to promote and the reddit account you are using should be old. The age of the domain should be atleast 3 months, but the older, the better. Same with the reddit account – older the account, the higher chance of your upvotes getting counted and higher chances of getting to the front page of your subreddit.


„Aim low“

You always hear to „aim high“ but in this case the opposite is better. You should aim to get to the front page of subreddits rather than whole reddit (/r/all). Most websites can’t handle the „reddit hug of death“ because of their cheap hosting. If you are low on money, you wouldn’t be even able to afford such an expensive hosting and it would be waste from the beggining. Aim to rank on subreddits rather than getting to the front page and upgrade your hosting and buy/send more upvotes later when you have made your money.

The top subreddits to post in are, /r/Futurology, r/The_Donald, /r/UpliftingNews/, /r/Cryptocurrency (and other crypto related subreddits). These subreddits have a lot of traffic and they are open to „unknown“ websites (like yours). Other subreddits with so many subscribers accept links just from big websites like bbc, cnn and so on.

Upvotes

There are two ways to boost your link. If your content is good, it will start getting hundreds of upvotes in these subreddits, but you should boost your link initially. You can either buy upvotes or buy accounts and upvote yourself. You do not need proxy for each account, you can just use VPN to switch between IPs. Do not forget to clear cookies between each upvote, log off the account before changing IP and so on. The more popular sub you target, the faster (and more often) you can upvote your links. However, to be safe, you should NOT upvote your link more than 10 times before the 10 minute mark or it will get instantly removed. Accounts do NOT need to have comment history to have their upvotes count.

Adsense isn’t the only option

Even though Adsense pays the most (especially with the niches I wrote about earlier) not everyone can get their Adsense account approved or has problems getting paid. I suggest using native ad networks alongside adsense (or instead of it, if you are really unable to get adsense account). They will make your website look „larger“ with ad posts, they are easier to get accepted to and they often pay to paypal too.

It is also possible to promote ecommerce websites or CPA websites, but it is so much harder. Your average redditor is tech savvy and will understand that you are just trying to sell something right away and downvote your content. That’s why I suggest using adsense and native ads.

Obviously, your content must be good, unique. Just look at the past posts that have reached the front page of your chosen subreddit and try to imitate the style of the article and website.

I will attach screenshots of traffic and earnings that came from reddit.

Happy earnings!

1) So basically you look up viral content, throw some upvotes and boom or do you write the articles, do the featured image and headline yourself?
2) How many links do you post daily and how many of them go viral?
3) How many accs do you buy and how many initial upvotes do you throw in?

Answer them at your own convenience, thank you.

Also a quick suggestion from me, make sure to get good hosting, like a VPS or something, I've had some experience with a similar method like this, where one of my posts got viral, server couldn't hold up after 70,000 visitors arrived in an hour and went down for over 6 hours.

which sub/what strategy did you use to get this? do you do anything consistently for traffic using reddit?

This right here is gold. Have you found any other niches/subs that do well? Or just these

Hey, Thank you for the share.

I have few questions and will make a list to make it easier to read:

- Can you please tell me more about posting in subreddits? Is it okay to post with new accounts without good karma?
- As many accounts you have is better or after some point it doesn't matter? in terms of safety
- How often can you post with one account to promote your website?
- Do you recommend having one account for one subreddit?
- How long should pass until you post again in the same subreddit?

Thanks! I've been monetizing my sites with c.ad and other natives for years. if you have any question, let me know.

Hey @Alma bro, awesome guide, but you left your fake news site names visible in the upper right. Might wanna trim that down a bit.

Excellent share. Reddit is indeed a hidden and untapped traffic source for those who can crack its well-hidden secrets.

Thanks man!

Reddit is a good source for traffic. Some subreddit with low subscribers can also be a good source of traffic for long term.

Answer them at your own convenience, thank you.

1) I write them myself, but I do take an inspiration from other posts/websites.
2) I would post max. 3 links per website per subreddit per day. Most of them get upvotes naturally.
3) I have about 600 accs. Initial upvotes depend on the subreddit.

NSFW niche with porn websites can be good too. There are many NSFW subreddits. You can just search through http://redditlist.com/ and look at the subreddits which have 100k+ subscribers. Check out if there are many "unknown" websites listed and you can figure out other niches easily.

1) It is better to post with old accounts with good karma, as the upvotes are more likely to count.
2) Not sure what you mean, I have 600 accs and making more daily.
3) I wouldn't post more than 3 links per website per subreddit per day on good, old account.
4) It is better to have many good and old accounts in stock and use more than 1 acc for each subreddit. You don't want your account to look like it is promoting just one website.
5) Depends on the subreddit but as I said, I wouldn't post more than 3 times a day, spread out throughout the day.

Hey mate, thanks for the heads up, I have totally forgotten about that. However, I have no idea how to edit my post? There is no button for it :/.
