    I'm just curious if Reddit upvotes are something people want to buy, I know people buy youtube views, facebook likes, twitter followers, everything basically, but I've never seen anything about Reddit. Are people just not able to provide them or is there no demand? Because I can provide upvotes on Reddit and thinking about selling them, thanks in advance if anyone knows if there is a demand for them.

    Personally, I'd buy retailmenot up votes. I can't get that damn thing to vote up no matter what I do or what proxies I use.

    Yes, I would assume there is huge demand for one. Whoever creates one successfully will be a rich man.

    It's really hard to spam Reddit b/c the community is so friggin uptight about spam. I don't think it's worth it to JUST get the upvotes...the content has to be really good or it's pointless. If you're doing something legit and you just need the juice there are power users who you can pay to post your content.

    Niggy the community is strong, but if your content is good and dosen`t look like spam it would be nice to have a few hits for boost.

    Reddit is insane, I bought likes and it turned into a crazy circus. Whatever you do, be sure to do your due diligence when it comes to fiverr and reddit..

    Just make sure it's actually a quality post. It's not like youtube where you can make a shit video, buy hundreds of thousands of likes and expect it to blow up. People on reddit will downvote you 10x faster than you can buy upvotes.

    I suppose, it also depends on the speed at which you would acquire the upvotes.

    I thought what I had was quality, but I also treated it like a press release which was silly of me.

    I second this...

    I've gotten many things on front page reddit/imagur and the first SIGN of somebody trying to game something that sucks or that is promotional will get you slapped down so fast your goddamn head will spin.

    Don't even bother with it

    We at Reddit don't take kind to spam.

    Seriously, if you have an interesting title you may get some initial clicks, but once they realize its spam, that's it. We downvote to hell.

    Take a look at the first few pages on any subreddit, you will not find any spam.

    I spent a large amount of time trying to game reddit. As soon as I gave up and started focusing on content I started to drive soooo much traffic. Reddit is a monster. I do wonder what would happen if I combined great content with a few fake votes. I suppose it would work but you would have to do a lot of testing. The spam filters are quick to the punch, so you really need to have a variety of links that you want to promote.

    The thing with Reddit is, you aren't going to make any money from the traffic but, you can build a following that will be profitable in the future.

    If you could cheat Reddit you would make a ton of money, no doubt. The problem is that Reddit has many layers of spam protection. Reddit's algorithm is very advanced and will cancel out any suspicious upvotes with a downvote which means you could buy a bunch of votes only to have the algo get rid of them. Then, you have the human moderators on each subreddit. These are users who remove all crappy content from their subreddit. If you get through them you still have the users to deal with. Getting through all of this is almost impossible if you are simply trying to spam.

    If you really want to market on Reddit, your going to have to join, become active by commenting and sharing links. You'll see what they like and gain karma in the process. Then, you can share valuable links of yours that are of interest to the community. Not easy by any means and not blackhat either, but it is the only way to really do it. I don't think any tool can do all of this.
