Reddit Bans Overeager Etsy Sellers
Reddit has "soft banned" Etsy links due to what the site says is a recent rise of spam posts by apparently overeager sellers who don't follow Reddit's rules when promoting their listings on its site. Reddit is an irreverent social networking site where people make posts, often with links to news, humor and politics, and users comment and vote the posts up or down. Etsy sellers have been discussing the benefits of posting on Reddit over the past few months. You can find posts on Etsy discussion boards written by sellers who discover traffic coming to their listings from Reddit.
