    just out of curiosity.

    how much traffic did you get with this top post? Where you able to monetize it?

    Is EVERY post moderated or do they just random check the submissions?

    I was not monetizing the traffic , but one of the them got 700k and the other one 550k hits on the imgur image ...

    Note : both my posts were unique , but i suppose you can game reddit as well . I have seen repeated reposts being voted up by groups of upvoters

    Your domain might have been banned too. Once they ban a domain, everything that is posted on that domain will be shadowed. I tried the same sub-reddit a few years back and they banned my domain :p
    /r/funny is heavily moderated. Real tough to get past if you are trying to spam.

    Maybe you're just not that funny... Maybe go through a vps or something
