    Hey,

    I hope someone with more Reddit experience than me can help.

    Over the last few months, all of my Reddit submissions have been getting caught in the moderation queue, is there any way out of that?

    There is a sub-reddit dedicated to the niche which one of my sites is in, and I would submit some news articles from my site every so often. These would always get a score of about 10-20 (usually around 25 upvotes and 10 downvotes). The niche is quite small so its rare for any submissions in that sub-reddit to score higher than about 25-30. I've always posted quality news, never duplicate stuff or anything like that. It would always appear more or less straight away.

    However, now my submissions don't appear on the sub-reddit for about 4-5 days, by which time they're way down the listings and no-one notices them. They get a score of about 5 if I'm lucky, most only get 1 (my own upvote).

    Any ideas how I can get out of this? If I create a new account, will that help? It'll be obvious it's a dupe account since it's usually me who posts news from my site (occasionally a couple of others will, but not regularly)

    Hi Dude....I love BHW but I am also on Reddit...Metafilter and B3ta regularly.....I cant imagine how you could possibly turn a trick out of these people....major shark infested waters !!

    Have you been making bank out of them or are you just trying ? I cant see any profit here but maybe thats me !

    Before they started putting my submissions in the moderation queue I was getting crazy traffic from each submission, every day I submitted an article my traffic would be 2-3x a normal day's traffic. Redditors didn't seem to click many ads though so CTR fell, but earnings were still a little higher overall, so well worth it for the extra traffic and extra pennies.

    Really depends on the niche you're in, I lucked out since there's a sub-reddit specifically for my niche, and there are very few sites actively posting news stories, other than a couple of forums.

    Either create a few other news websites with no ads and use them in addition or start posting some major news websites in addition to your money site. Reddit Is really hard to make money from,the easiest niche in there is porn,but even then you have to have a website with certain specs and use multiple names and ip's.
