Users can vote up and down for the submitted content, based on which the content is organized on the page. The content is divided into over 50 categories or topics, called subreddits.

Reddit has a large community which allows users to increase traffic on a website or blog, after sharing the link on Reddit. Due to the active community, links can easily spread and reach a lot of people, which essentially drives traffic, and this is called “Reddit Effect”.
