    Reddit is a great traffic source for my Niche blogs. When you make too many link posts on Reddit, you get kicked out of posting for a few hours. Is there a way around this? Does it have something to do with changing your IP address? I have tried login in from multiple accounts and it still doesn't work

    To be successful with reddit you need to look legit as possible. Spamming shit constantly will get your account ghosted (posts won't show up) Make your account look as real as possible.
    I used to post images with links in the description with fresh accounts. After getting my account ghosted twice I tried to figure out away around it. I began posting like a real user, high quality content and instead of posting any links at all Id just watermark the images. 4 - 5 Images daily

    Accounts lasted for months and depending on your niche can bring great traffic.

    Or you can create dozens of accounts with proxies and forget about quality.

    For the sake of having your account last 2 minutes and then get ghosted, Why bother wasting your time?
    Quality over quantity is a must for reddit.

    I agree with this. I'm sure you could look into bots or something to help get around it, but it's probably worth the time investment if it really is a good source of traffic to your site. Would be a better long term plan for sure.

    Maybe you're right for all sfw niches. But I'm in the NSFW business, I've got 40-50 accounts and they last for couple of months. When they ghost it, I create another one. When they ban my IP, I get another proxy.
    Beats posting quality content when it comes to both time and effort.

    Actually, that makes a ton of sense in that context too. No sense trying to beat a square peg into a round hole.

    That's the beauty of this forum - get perspective from all ends of the spectrum!

    definitely agree to that, if you're in mainstream neaches and want to get traffic long term you definitely need to have a high quality as reddit users are very jumpy when it comes to spam.

    Did you watermark a link or a keyword you ranked high for?

    Reddit is pretty tough for NSFW, but running legitimate accounts to drive traffic to more WH types of sites can provide a very long-term, and stable stream of traffic. I prefer to play by the rules at reddit, but I do push some NSFW traffic through there as well.

    Its hard, but I don't really think its that hard once you work out a "organic" style method of posting. Like 50 pics varying between watermark and no watermark with some famous sites that you obviously couldn't own be added into the mix to make your own personal site look like its not being promoted.

    Second what many others have said in this thread- you need to 'behave' like a legit user. Say, Make 5 accounts, use them regularly for browsing, liking, commenting etc. It does require some of your time, but after your comment karma reaches 1k+ and the account is aged, you will look way more legit to other users and Reddit people really do browse profiles to call out spammers. Also,make sure that you email verify your accounts.

    You have to post interesting submissions, that get upvotes.
    When you have a lot of submission with none upvotes, they put you on their spam radar and you're disabled to post for a while.

    As someone said - just be legit, and post legit content.

    I have 50 reddit accounts that use different VPN's and i do is upvote and downvote 4-6 random things on a subreddit in which im going to mass upvote my main account on to get it on the front page of the subreddit. None of them have been ghosted and it's been a month.
