The first thing you want to do when it comes to Reddit traffic generation is you’ve got to participate in the community.

By participating you’ll realize what people like, and what they don’t want. You’ll understand what content works and what content doesn’t.

The second thing you want to do is join subreddits. What subreddits are, are sections of Reddit. Reddit talks about everything out there, but you know what they’re subsections on fashion, marketing, even weed.

There’s sections on everything out there on Reddit. If you’re into Bitcoin and Ethereum, you’ll also find subreddits on those topics.

Now that you’re participating in subreddits and you’ve joined them, again you want to participate in the community see what they like in those subreddits and what they don’t.

The next thing you want to do is be transparent.

Redditers can smell marketers from a mile away, and that’s why most people struggle with monetizing and getting traffic from Reddit.

If you’re not transparent, people are going to sniff you out, and none of your content’s going to do well.

The fourth thing you want to do is replicate the content that’s already doing well on Reddit, and a create better version of it.

When you submit, and you’ve participated, you have this community, you have this following on Reddit, you’ll find that they’ll start voting up your stuff. It’ll begin to generating you traffic, and over time you’ll get more visitors to your site, but there’s one caveat. When you’re trying to get a lot of traffic from Reddit, you’ll struggle if you do what I do.

If you go to neilpatel.com you’ll notice I have sliders, popups, and all these things because I want to collect a lot of emails.

Redditers hate that, so if you’re using Hello Bar to collect all of your emails, put in there within the settings you can say don’t show it to people coming from Reddit and by doing that, the Redditers won’t be ticked off when they come to your site. But if your site, in general, is very aggressive, what’ll happen is no one will want to share your content, they’re going to all download it and you’re going to get no traffic from Reddit.



  1. Hi i posted on reddit a link to a review on my website it was a short but good content review with great pics for an awsome game the game actually had no benifit for me i wrote the review myself it wasnt just an embeded video and i wasnt selling that game although i do have affiliate links on the site i posted an awsome title and have had some comments but just ones saying its click bait i dont get it because the review is good and i dont profit from that review actually it was my fisrt attempt but if everyones going to slam posts with links as click bait whats the point in linking stuff on your site ps the account wasnt brand new i had been using and commenting how should i of approched it im new to the whole using social media thing but i really thought it was a review gamers would want to look at it kinda got put down without them even looking at the review kind of like the other commenter on here in the same boat

  2. Hello Neil I've a Question to ask from you & I thing which is really important to climb the first step of SEO & the Question is How I can create a crazy amazing Website Design that will be user Friendly & Attractive to visitors like yours and Brian Dean's if you will give ans to my this Question it can be very helpful to me and it will make my day

  3. Great advice. Reddit can be hard and you can get shadow banned if you do things wrong. Join the convo, add value and replicate what’s already working but do it some what better. I think most people are to quick to promote their sites or offers. Reddit takes time to build trust as well so if your account is new and you spam/promote to early they will sniff you out + they have bots that are smart that pick things up very fast. Do things right and you get masses amounts of traffic. Actually had my server crash because I had a post go viral and wasn’t ready for the traffic lol.

    Love your work Neil, these short videos are my favourite way to get quick bursts of info that spark ideas 💡


  5. You are right, It's tough to make reddit people like usual content. I posted three well written articles and two got negative response, people attacked me aggressively for posting that content in their Sub-reddits. But one was liked and got picked up by the person about whom I wrote the article and she also tweeted it.
    More than 5,000 people came together on my website that day. That girl's boyfriend showed the article to his live audience (8k+) and someone made a video about that article. People still visit to my website because of that article from Reddit, YouTube and Twitter. That article almost went viral, just because of I posted it on Reddit and it was relative to the sub-reddit.
