    I managed to get ONE article up on a sub without getting banned. I had GREAT success with it too.

    Next day, tried a different sub with a different article. Banned from sub.

    What in the **** am I doing wrong here? Is there some club that I can get just to POST the stupid posts then a club for upvotes because apparently I fail at Reddit. Is there someone you can hire who will post for you so you don't get banned/frustrated/ready to punch monitor?

    Yes, I know. Facebook is my primary focus but the Reddit traffic was sexy. Any traffic is sexy actually.

    Edit: I was sure to also go through some other posts in subs and upvote them, upvote comments, etc btw.

    Probably banned manually by a moderator. Contribute, then spam. Not the other way around.

    Well you can't just pop in on reddit, and then spam blast crap(drop even one BAD link with a new account and it will be immediately and permanently ghosted). It's often challenging for new accounts to get established. There are some possible solutions:

    1. Buy aged accounts with karma perhaps on fiverr, but more likely in private sales venues (it can be expensive for even moderately well aged and karma'd accounts, but if you know what you are doing these can also be quite valuable.)
    2. The preferred choice for anyone on a limited budget - Learn to do reddit the better way. Yes you can spam reddit, and suck traffic right away if done well, but you will almost always burn that account shortly thereafter. So an alternate approach is to take it easy with the posting, diminish promotional posts, and participate. It's also good to karma whore a bit and allow your accounts to age for 1-2 months.

    So the thing to do is create many more accounts and then run a bot or iMacros and age the accounts and participate with 100% clean links for a while. Then after 1-2 months you should easily be able to use these accounts somewhat aggressively to promote. Be aware that on reddit - all aggressive activity does eventually mean you will lose these accounts.

    If you use this strategy well though, you will already have accounts in the pipeline to replace the lost ones with. If you're going to be in IM, and using social media, then losing accounts goes with the territory. The question now is simply ... what are you going to do about it?

    If you find Reddit traffic sexy, then try sexy things like participating without spamming! The more you are on Reddit, the more things you will learn. So as your account ages, you can invite better writers or freelance to receive better audience.

    Yea yea. :) I like Reddit really. If I have an issue, I can usually troubleshoot it through Reddit. I was just on there complaining about DirectTV even. So, I do use it... just not enough I guess to be able to promote my own stuff.

    I was just frustrated with the entire thing (not just Reddit). :)

    This.

    Reddit is a very finicky community. And they can spot spam right away.
