    Is it worth the pain to create and promote a subreddit community with the aim of "redirecting" traffic to your blog or website??? Has anyone tried this :cool:

    I don't think its good idea. You would do 2 works to get paid for one. If you know what i mean ;)

    I've been thinking the same thing, I was on a subreddit and posted a link for a good article on my site. Less than 2 minutes after I posted I refreshed my stats and had over 46 unique hits, then the mods took down my post. So I think it would be a good idea and want to try it but I don't know how you'd attract followers. Also I noticed a few big name sites in my niche who have subreddits. Worst case is good backlinks.

    I'm working on a subreddit now. For me the key is to really respect what Reddit is about and not just try to rape it for traffic like you would with Twitter or Facebook. Redditors are generally more savvy when it comes to being marketed to. Reddit is the only social site that I still participate on personally, so I look at it differently FB and stuff.

    I've had lots of traffic from reddit. It works. Some subreddits have very strict rules, they pull you down if you don't comply. My problem with creating a subreddit is it needs time to promote, and you certainly can't pull the twitter tricks

    I've tried some with Reddit and saw a number of traffic flowing, not too much but it's like 300 visitors/good article I submitted, I'm a bit lazy to go for higher number,

    would you share me how much traffic you get from reddit, and what's general niche convert best? Cuz I've tried a tech niche (monetize with Adsense) and it's like no convert at all. I guess tech niches are bad for Adsene cuz those visitors are ads blind.
