The Easiest Way To Get Massive Traffic Using Reddit (With Illustrations)

Reddit is an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Reddit’s registered community members can submit content such as text posts or direct links. Registered users can then vote submissions up or down that determines their position on the page.

 Submissions with the most up-votes appear on the front page or the top of a category. Content entries are organized by areas of interest called “sub-reddits”

Sub-reddit topics include news, science, gaming, movies, music, books, fitness, food, image-sharing, and many others. The site prohibits harassment, and moderation requires substantial resources.

So according to Wikipedia, Reddit is a place where displays a long list of posts, which can include links to articles elsewhere on the web or posts in the form of texts. It allows other users to up-vote or down-vote a post according to their opinion of it. The more up-votes a post gets, the more it will be displayed on the site.

After you create your account, and before you do anything on Reddit, you must first increase your account link and comment karma to make it more trusted to post in any popular sub-reddit without getting banned.

If you haven’t heard about karma before, it is the scoreboard of Reddit; a reward earned for posting popular content. It also comes in two flavors: link karma, and comment karma. You can gain points when your links and comments are up-voted by other users. At the same time, you lose karma when your links and comments are down-voted.

You can view any user’s karma at the top of the sidebar in their profile page.
