    I have been trying for the last 2 weeks to drive traffic to my adult sites using reddit but it looks almost impossible, i signed up and started posting links and comments in several subreddits to make sure my account and my posts are not marked as spam, only 10% of my posted links are links to my site, i also posted comments to make my account look legit. However, since last week every time i post something in any category linking to my site, the post does not show up, even when i post something linking to tumblr or any other site the post gets ghosted, the only exception is imgur, so i have some questions:

    -What are the general advices and rules to consider when using reddit to promote adult sites?
    -Should i create another account with a different ip and start trying again?
    -Is there any way to bypass reddit spam filter using some url shortener or some other method?

    80% of reddit use adblock, url shorteners if i remeber good in some subredist are not alowed 99% of reddit users hate spam, mods are doing god job there.
    Ppl want from you to use only imgur or direct linking to .jpg or .gif
    Few tricks - use imgur gallery with few pics and post there link in description
    create own subredit and post in big subredits with post name like post-title via /yoursubreditname
    make other account one will posting to your subredit and one will approve the post if is marked as spam

    It's possible your domain is banned or shadow banned. Try verifying your email, and get some karma from other posts before you start posting. Reddit's spam filter is really touchy.

    Your domain name has been shadow banned, you won't get any submissions in. Also notice how the NSFW reddits are suspiciously the same submitters all the time? There's a *lot* of weird suspicious activity in all the main subreddits. Some people speculate that the mods are in on it.

    Some big corporation stories reach the front page at the blink of an eye...very strange. How much would Corporation ACME pay for a front page post with 1000's of unique visitors??

    I was spamming Reddit pretty heavily late last year while I was in a down turn. It was all NSFW stuff. You might want to try posting images watermarked with your url. In some of the adult subs. r/milf r/gilf etc are good subs and the mods are almost nonexistent. Use proxies and just make new reddit accounts as you go. It's pretty easy actually.

    I don't think reddit is a convenient source of traffic for adult websites.

    This.

    Sending redditors to a porn site seems wasteful, find something better to sell that demographic.

    Actually, you can make money using adult offers on reddit. You just can't use the same crappy spammy method that everyone is so accustomed to.

    I'd agree to this, many active people here that love to mark as spam everything they don't like so if you don't know how to take them easy so they don't suspect you of spamming ( which is quite hard) you don't really have a chance

    Excuse me. I'm kinda curious about the term shadow banned? What makes it different from being banned? This is a first for me so I hope someone can answer my query. (no use making another thread for this since this thread and my question is somehow connected).

    First of all you asking of genuine question means the business related question so that more than post of your thread because more than big companies administator are available of reddit as well any site so that reply to your thread and more than traffic in reddit account.

    After that some times you are any asking of any related topics question but first of the asking of question business marketing and general marketing. So that many genuine person response your thread.
