I swear, these neckbeard Reddit mods never fail to piss me off.

I made a fresh account intending to promote a particular Clickbank product… Joined a relevant subreddit and start providing value commenting on hot posts WITHOUT EVEN ADDING ANY LINKS…

Every comment I was making was quickly becoming top comment. 30 comments in and I already had made 3 conversions, netting me ~$500 for about 2 hours worth of work. Not too shabby, could have easily scaled this up.

The secret sauce was this…

On my Reddit profile, I linked a blogger.com post… They allow you to add custom URL’s to your profile, and I took advantage of that. The article contained very valuable content, was hand-written, and ultimately contained my aff link (in the form of a 301 redirect). The purpose of this article was to pre-sell the product and build rapport (shoutout to @BassTrackerBoats for giving me advice on this).

Within 5 hours I was fucking banned. Not just from the subreddit I was promoting in, but from Reddit entirely.

I’m sitting here scratching my head, not even worried about the money, but just thinking that these pricks must have literally clicked my profile, gone to my blog, and determined that I was affiliated with the product I was promoting in my blog.

Reddit used to be a goldmine for me not even that long ago.

Just goes to show that as internet marketers, we need to be constantly evolving and outsmart those that have the power to hinder our success.

What could I have done differently here?

Couldn’t have said it better man. I like to call em’ “pocket pickers”.

It’s like their sole objective is to make sure we aren’t making money, even if we’re providing value in the process.

I can’t be bitter though. Plus, experiences like these give you the knowledge to revamp your process moving forward and keep the edge.

They want you to be "equal" equally poor like them they hate capitalism look at these subreddits

That is why Reddit as a site will never make any money and operates at a loss because it attracts fucking retards like this.

Fun fact:

A moderator of that exact subreddit went on Fox News. It was a train wreck.

Was actually hilarious to watch, it’s on YouTube somewhere.

But a subreddit mod can get your account banned entirely?

That’s what I was wondering as well. Because there’s no way my comments triggered any kind of automatic ban - I was spacing them out reasonably and providing real, genuine value.

It's the Reddit bots that banned you. You should always warm up your account.

Adding a link to the profile is the worst thing you can do during the warmup phase.

Then you were posting links in the comments as well.

Reddit's spam filters are extremely sophisticated and can deal with even smarter stuff.

We need to find ways to not get caught.

I see what you’re saying, but as mentioned in the post, I did not post any links in the comments. This makes me hesitant to believe the ban was a result of some sort of automatic filter.

You will banned from reddit eventually, even if you don't advertise anything, just try to have any normal discussion on there :D.
Anyways always use more aged accounts with more karma, always have a backup accounts and always try to find subreddits that have inactive mods (as mods are the ones who report the most).
It is still pretty solid goldmine, but just as with anything you need to adapt to the current situation.

All I can say is, "Wow!"

It seemed to me that the policy of reddit is simply that they don't like affiliate marketing. But they're really dumb.

Buy aged reddit account with karma and try again. There are sellers here on BHW marketplace. I bought 8 years old account with 14k karma for $4
