Reddit > Pinterest
Google has been all over the place for me. Before it took a month to index content, currently it's taking a few hours.. it's hard to tell when things will be indexed with Google from my blog.
I've been looking at alternative ways to get traffic because of this.
Youtube has been doing amazing for me. I did a video a day for 4 weeks and now have 42 subscribers, over two thousands views on the videos and a lot of page 1 rankings in Google.
Most videos rank in page 1 in Google in just a few minutes.
I've been trying Pinterest as well but haven't gotten any results.
So I decided to create a subreddit on Reddit based on my niche.
And the results have been AMAZING.
I just retarget my keywords on Reddit, put about 100 to 200 word description of my article and post my article.
My first post on Reddit was indexed on page 1 in Google in two days and is closing in on 100 total views in just 5 days.
I've posted 5 more articles to my subreddit and all are on page 1 or page 2 (within a matter of a couple of days)
What this does is it ensures whenever I write a new article I get 3 spots in Google now.
For example, a popular review I wrote a month ago now gets around 80 views a day:
30 views a day from my Youtube video targeting the same keyword:
And around 50 views a day to my post on Reddit in my subreddit targeting the keyword (I posted the review on Reddit just 3 days ago):
This is just one keyword that's getting around 150 views a day all because I own 3 spots on Google targeting it.
I have other keywords getting between 30 to 100 views now with this same method.
Writing my review takes about 4 hours. Creating a Youtube video around it takes about 1 hour. Posting it on to Reddit takes about 5 minutes.
If you don't have the time to create a Youtube video, creating a subreddit and posting your reviews there is a great way to get more traffic and take up more valuable real estate in Google's search.
Edit: Just to clarify I use Reddit to get page 1 rankings on Google.. not to try and get traffic from the Reddit community.
