Where have I been?
Yes, I may live under a rock but I've only recently heard of reddit.
My hubs began coming home from work talking about pictures of crazy things the guys at work were showing him on there. He pulled a couple of them up and showed me and I must admit, there is some strange stuff on there.
Then when I implemented my Share Buttons at the bottom of each blog post I noticed there was an option to share to reddit. I began to wonder why would I share a blog post to reddit?
Exactly what is reddit?
Reddit is an online community where users vote on content that has been submitted by other users. There is a category for any and every thing you can think of.
June 23rd, 2005, reddit went live and shortly after that exploded.
Today, as of August 28th, 2012, reddit had 39,747,323 unique visitors last month, from 172 different countries, who viewed a total of 3,193,347,068 pages. THAT...my friends...is an explosion!
What does this mean to you?
Let me share a couple posts with you that exploded after I shared them on reddit:
Free Ad Spot Give-a-Way
I shared this post to reddit, within 10 minutes of me posting it on there, I had over 150 page views and 30 e-mails from individuals who wanted more information.
Free $25.00 Gift Card
This post I shared also but I had over 500 page views in an hour.
With reddit you can build your social network and gain readers and followers all while creating back links.
The blogger tips that I've been posting here and there have had way more hits than these from another social site that I'll share with you some other time. So stay tuned.
