How to Create Massive Attention of a Subreddit On Social Media

Want to increase exposure or build credibility for your subreddit; a powerful network of niche communities that collectively define reddit? If a subreddit gains enough subscribers, it can become part of the default homepage.

With over 730 million unique users per month, it is worth the effort in growing. If you don’t know what Reddit is, review this beginner’s guide.

This easy to follow (and short) Reddit to RSS tutorial will show you how to extract an RSS feed for any Reddit category or subreddit and customize it for distribution across social media:

 1. Grab the URL of a Reddit category or subreddit

Examples

Category: http://www.reddit.com/r/food/

Subreddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/vegan/

2. Create an RSS feed

This part is easy. Just append any category or subreddit URL with ‘.rss

Category: http://www.reddit.com/r/food/.rss

Subreddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/vegan/.rss

3. Share the feed across social media

Add your newly created RSS feed to a route in dlvr.it. If you are concerned about the quality of the content, set-up a Q to review and schedule the content before it goes live. Also consider adding filters to delete certain posts.

Customize the updates on social media by adding hashtags, custom prefixes/suffixes to alter the posts, and photos to attract more attention.

Now anytime new content is added to the subreddit, your feed will update and create a new social media update. This activity will draw more attention to it and help attract more followers on Reddit.
