    Ok, so I set up a blog, which has 80 articles now. They're well written articles for the most part; SEO'd and everything. Each article has a video and a thumbnail, etc. So, I decide to try to add some articles to Reddit, as I have never really got into using that site before.

    So I add an article about a celebrity to the celebrity section and it is refused.


    Sorry, PromoterHost, your post has been automatically removed. Your account is brand new, and our subreddit experiences a lot of spam from new accounts. As such, we remove submissions from brand new accounts to prevent spam.

    So, I use the link to have it reconsidered, with this comment:

    *Note, I am not trying to spam my link. I am just showing the link so y'all can see what I was trying to add.

    I get a confusing response:

    Confused, I send this message:

    The moderator responds:

    So I ask for clarification:

    I get this response (basically showing me how to be a better "spammer", as far as I am concerned).

    The moderator's advice is to make a new account with a name that is harder to associate with the domain I am trying to promote. Isn't that the kind of thing a REAL spammer would do? Or maybe even create multiple sock accounts? Then wait 3 days so it won't be flagged as spam.

    I am literally scratching my head. I don't believe in spam, and I wouldn't try to spam -- but the moderator on Reddit said that my submission was the VERY definition of spam.

    I literally don't see how I was spamming.

    I own a blog. I created an account using the username of that blog. Since when was that a crime on the Internet? ..to create a username similar to your own blog? Who doesn't do that? Then, I submitted a well written article.

    I GET that the auto-bot, spam prevention, mechanism thingy was tripped. Ok, you get that! That's life. ..but upon being reviewed by a human, I get all that cryptic nonsense above? ..and told that the spam bot was right and I am spamming???

    Huh?

    Can someone please tell me how I can submit my articles to Reddit?

    Many of the articles on that website took half a day to write. I am GENUINELY trying to get the articles added on Reddit, so that they can be considered for people to like and discuss.

    P.S. I am going to send the URL of this post to the mod so they can see the discussion.

    Reddit is very strict about spam and they hate marketers. You should post a link to one of your site only once per 2 weeks.....

    In between time you need to write comments that aren't self-promotional and participate in other discussions like a real redditor.

    Its simply Reddit is not accepting anymore content from new accounts so I'm not surprised if one day they will not allowed the registration process for their site.
