    Hey Guys,

    Firstly, apologies if this has been posted already - I searched for it and briefly looked and couldn't find anything help.

    Anyway - Does anyone know a bot that I can use to upvote Reddit links?

    Thanks!

    Haha, it's pretty frustrating! I don't even want hundreds - only like 10-20 or so!

    Anyway, if you find anything be sure to let me know!

    Same here. Reddit is built like a fortress. Almost no way around it.

    Reddit and ***** will destroy your business lol

    I've had some success with it but its too much time for little reward. You can get a lot of traffic but it will not convert

    I am building a reddit service from scratch soon out of ruby. Should I repost once it is complete? Should be done in a few weeks.

    Yeah, Reddit is pretty difficult but there is nothing impossible and it's worth time if you have a decent plan.

    The difference between Reddit and everything else, is that Reddit users actually care about the content on the site. We don't get paid, but we go to r/new and downvote garbage. Why do we do this? Because we want interesting and relevant topics to read.

    Take a day, come up with some type of interesting spin on what you are selling, and it will sell itself. I'll even give you my upvote.

    If something managed to get enough upvotes through bots without triggering the spam filters, the users will downvote it to oblivion negating all the time and money you spent. If you actually have useful content that is not just affiliate spam, you may get lucky and naturally get upvoted, but otherwise Reddit is designed to eat spam for breakfast.

    I started creating a reddit bot my plan was to include an account creator as well as the voting module all proxy supported. Is there anything reddit filters new accounts from voting? I noticed you have to wait 10 minutes before creating a new account. I currently dont have any private proxies nor do I want to deal with the pain of public ones which is why I put making this bot on hold. I did recently renew my HMA VPN so I will probably continue making this bot now that proxies shouldn't be as big of an issue. If anyone has any info if reddit has other barriers put in place to not let votes count (new account restrictions, or new posts voting restrictions etc..) I would appreciate if you let me know before I waste my time. PM me or add me on skype: "zonfar"

    To be honest - is there any reason why I would not be able to do this by hand? Just log into each account one at a time and upvote the post on each?

    The reddit community will downvote your submission like hell. Be sure to post some really really good info there before thinking about using a bot to upvote it or your post will end up with more downvotes than upvotes !

    Just be really careful when doing this, trying to game reddit is like trying to game *****. There is a huge element of that community that is purely toxic, and if you get caught publicly trying to play the system, your site will be attacked. Sadly I learnt this the hard way.

    There is something in their upvote/downvote equation that equalises out votes made by the same accounts. So if you have a number accounts all voting for the same submissions all the time, something triggers and it all goes back to zero. I guess you could potentially create 10 new accounts every time, but that is a hell of a lot of work for every submission.

    followlike(.)net claims they can do this. Check them out.

    Be sure to let me know if you use their service and have success.

    EDIT: Sorry, not sure about a bot.

    As far as I have experience in reddit, it is mostly for gossip / funny and such content... That is what the users want on it.

    Forget that. Trying to game Reddit is the same as trying to game Google -- it is *not* going to happen, especially with bots or any kind of artificial clicks. Reddit even has algorithms that autodownvote and upvote individual *comments*, to say nothing of posts. Once you're past the very formidable staff and robot-enforced filters, there's the users themselves. If Reddit users detect any kind of gaming of the system, or feel you're trying to profit from spam, the knights of /r/new will downvote your shit to oblivion, or even worse they'll dox you and start attacking your website(s).

    You will not convert traffic even if you can get it there because the whole point of Reddit is Redditors consuming content that the Reddit community itself generates. *So* many easier ways to make money than that site... may as well just do media buys on the site and call it a day.

    Well my websites are not for spam, but projects in long term and I saw this huge traffic from reddit almost 50k from reddit in one day, because somebody shared a link on reddit to my page and now I am building accounts with good karma over reddit, so I can make a post to bring such traffic, but dont know at the end what will be the result :/
