Why you should always buy Reddit downvotes with your upvotesMrContent
The following explains why you should buy Reddit downvotes for competing posts in addition to the upvotes that you get for yours. The same strategy is applicable to other networks, including Voat or Snapzu. For Quora, please skip to the last section.
Why buy Reddit downvotes
Let’s say you want your post to stay for at least 24 hours on the first page of an average-sized subreddit (200k-300k subscribers). Even if your content is good, you have to be lucky in the first hour, especially the first few minutes. If you get downvoted early (even just one or two downvotes), other people won’t even open your thread because it doesn’t show up at /Rising or /Hot – basically, they don’t see it. This might all seem like bad news, but we can actually use it to your advantage with a SUBSTANTIAL effect. Because of what I’m writing next, we’ve been able to get posts on the first page easily in huge subreddits like /r/music, /r/videos, and /r/gaming. It would have been a lot harder, maybe even impossible, without this strategy:
Here’s what you’ll have to do:
- After you’ve made your post, don’t wait too long before purchasing what you need from us. The sooner we start work, the better. Note that you should synchronize your posts with our working schedule. You can also schedule your posts, meaning that you order what you need from us before having done the actual post, and mention during checkout at what time you’ll be posting, where, with what user and with what title.
- For a post of above-average quality in a huge subreddit, buy 8 upvotes for every 100k subscribers. For a small to average-sized subreddit, buy 1 upvote for every 10k subscribers. Of course, there are many factors that can shape your decision on the number of upvotes: What’s the quality of the post? When are you posting? Are you doing it mostly or only for SEO? Are you trying to bring it in the top of the month for that subreddit, maybe even top of the year in order to get a constant stream of traffic? And so on. If you’re lost, consider buying a strategy consultation with us first, or just buy one of our managed marketing packages and we’ll handle everything!
- Consider getting a “top comment”. It shapes the opinion of others as soon as they enter the comment section. They take it as the most popular opinion and therefore most probably true (argumentum ad populum). Basically, add to cart a comment and however many upvotes you consider necessary for it. If it will be the first comment posted in the thread, anchoring should play its role as well. Of course, more comments will have an even greater impact, but their effect starts to plateau after the fourth. One should always be the minimum. But getting more than four root comments per thread – in our experience – doesn’t seem to be more effective than getting just 4; after this point, it just becomes money spent, and nothing else. It’s best to have a few comments, but upvoted, instead of many comments at the bottom of the comment section.
- And the main trick: buy Reddit downvotes for competing posts as well! The ratio between upvotes and downvotes should depend on the subreddit size and the hour when you’re posting, therefore you’ll have to look and decide for yourself. The more competition exists in the New tab, the more downvotes you need. For example, to access the New tab on “/r/gaming”, you’d go to “/r/gaming/new”). “Competition” means many new posts. For subreddits under 5,000 subscribers, you don’t need to downvote competing posts. The standard ratio for a small to average-size subreddit should be 1 to 1 or 2 to 1 (two downvotes for every upvote). For a big subreddit with more than 300,000 subscribers, the ratio should be 3 to 1 (three downvotes for every upvote). For a huge subreddit with more than two million subscribers, the standard ratio should be 4 to 1. If you buy too many, your downvotes aren’t wasted because we just downvote what’s in front of your post in the /hot sorting.
Here’s what we’ll do in return:
- We’ll upvote your thread alright, but we’ll also downvote “the competition”. This is represented initially by other threads rising fast in popularity in the targeted subreddit. This way, we achieve four things:
- Your thread will be the most visible in the /new tab.
- Your thread will be on the pole position in the /rising tab.
- When comparing it subconsciously with other threads, redditors will suffer from the successive contrast effect (another bias that works for us), which leads them to see the content as better than it actually is.
- If you bought enough downvotes, we won’t stop there. As soon as the thread reaches the top 30 position in the /hot tab, we’ll redefine “competition” as being the threads that are in front of yours there, and we’ll downvote them. This will make your thread rise extremely fast to the top because of how Reddit’s algorithm works for that tab (interestingly, they actually track the u/d ratio in the last hour, and not since the inception of the threads).
- Your thread will get a lot more “natural” upvotes. It won’t rise in rank only because of our upvotes.
- It will also get more positive comments.
- You end up spending less money because downvotes for competing threads are a lot cheaper than upvotes.
- You won’t get called out, because instead of having many upvotes and an average position, you’ll have fewer upvotes but a higher position, therefore enjoying more traffic and engagement in a way that’s not suspicious.
Why buy downvotes on Quora
We will upvote your answers while downvoting competing ones to help you surpass them without visible proof for the visitors (because upvotes are public and downvotes are not). The more answers you have in front of yours and the more upvoted they are, the more downvotes you should buy. Even more than upvotes! They’re also half the price!
Reports of 3 to 1 are the median when ordering for Quora (buy three downvotes for every upvote), but what you need can vary greatly depending on the status of each question (positioning, upvote counts, the reputation of the accounts that are surpassing yours, and so forth).
Ranking answers this way helps their chance of remaining at the top for longer, and it doesn’t raise the same suspicion that comes with getting 50 upvotes in a few days (which will also be less effective in getting you the top position).
