“The Voice of the Internet”
Reddit.com is up there with the strongest social bookmarking sites and carries some serious traffic each month. Most of the submissions are very high in quality and their spam teams do a good job of stripping the accounts and bookmarks related with junk, low-quality, and malicious spam. Due to this, you’ve got to bring your best content to receive credit and keep your bookmarks. I would generally focus on linking to deep pages/posts that have catchy titles and information that will be useful to many of the viewers in your niche. Any multimedia, like Youtube and Vimeo videos, that can be incorporated is a major plus. There are a lot of categories in Reddit that you can take advantage of so make sure to check the index and find what works best for your articles/content.
- Page Rank = 8
- Alexa Rank = 131
- 15,500,000 – Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors
You can definitely receive some massive traffic boosts from Reddit but I feel there is a lot of competition here when compared to other social bookmarking sites. So making your titles stand out from the crowd and picking the right categories for the correct viewers is paramount. This takes playing around with, but think of how your readers will see your articles and choose a title that will interest them and leave something more to be desired. Don’t tell the whole story in your title either, they’ll just scan over it.
- Profile building, add all content/keywords possible
- Articles or Content of any kind
- Add multimedia videos/pictures if possible!
- Submit your link
- Create your own title, make it catchy because it’s a very plain looking site and the right words are key
Make sure to use this resource regularly whenever you write unique content. Reddit.com does provide strong backlinks and can also give your website some burst targeted traffic if your content can reach the front pages. Again, there are many social bookmarking submission tools out there for SEOs to use. I recommend Onlywire.com for a free 300 submissions a month, or paying for Bookmarking Demon which is the best automated social bookmarking software on the market.
