How to Make a Link in Reddit

Save

If you're a frequent Internet user, you've probably found a link to a video, picture or article that you want to share with the rest of the world. Fortunately, doing so only takes a few seconds, thanks to Reddit, a social networking website. Once a link is submitted, it appears on Reddit for other viewers to vote up or down. The more "Up" votes a link has, the better visibility it receives.

  • Visit the Reddit website. Click "Submit a Link" on the right side of the page. If you have an account, enter your username and password to login. If you do not have an account, click "Create a new account." You will need to verify your email address by clicking a link found within an email from Reddit. After verifying your account, click the "Submit a Link" button again.

  • Enter a title for your link in the "Title" text box. The title should relate to your link and give the reader a reason to click the link.

  • Enter the URL you wish to link in the "URL" box. The URL you enter must mirror the URL you're linking to. The best way to ensure your link will appear correctly is to copy the link you want to enter and paste it into the URL text box.

  • Type in the CAPTCHA characters in the last text box. Click "Submit." The link will appear for Reddit viewers to click on. You can view your link by clicking your username at the top right of the page.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you're already logged in to Reddit, type "http://reddit.com/" in front of a URL and press "Enter" to skip to the URL submission page. Once you press "Enter," click "Click here to submit this link." Do not add quotations around "http://reddit/" but do add the last backward slash.
