Reddit Karma information.
PART 1: REPOSTING
Picking subreddits, and finding OC
IMHO for best results find a subreddit with 300k to 500k subscribers that has at least 1 post that reaches r/all per day. r/ShittyLifeProTips works finely for my purpose. Karma and upvotes may wildly vary depending on setup.
Now, find an OC post (Don’t repost reposts) that is perferably:
A few pages down from /top/ (so people won’t see it as a blatant repost immediately)
More than a few months or a year old (Avoid things like memes that reflect the current culture of the time, as things have changed since then.)
Have at least 10,000 upvotes (for smaller subs this may be hard)
Download the image/text post from reddit onto your computer. Now when submitting, play around with the title a bit. Choose one that you think will give you the most clicks.
Or keep the title the exact same if you’re confident in the fact the general Reddit population won’t see this as a repost (at least for a while)
If your post gains 60 upvotes in 1 hour (one upvote per minute) or more, you’re practically golden.
Now for a little disclaimer:
It will probably never work the first time. You may have to expiriment with certain subreddits, OC, and title to get the right combo.
Your post will likely be removed by the sub’s Mods, or even be banned from the sub altogether. This is a dangerous game believe it or not. You might find yourself banned from all of Reddit if you’re unlucky.
The best time to post on Reddit is between 6 to 8 am EST on a Sunday. If you can’t allocate this time, posting from 6am to 4pm on a saturday also yields positive results. Never post midnight on Wednesday.
PART 2: KARMAWHORING
Karmawhoring (in my definition) is reposting something from one subreddit to another related subreddit to gain karma. Karmawhoring is less obvious than blatant reposting,
as you’re posting to a different subreddit.
Follow the steps in Part 1, “Picking subreddits and finding OC” and post to roughly the same subreddit with the same or related topic.
