Welcome to my review of Traffic Builder 2.0.
If you are running any kind of online business, whether its affiliate marketing, dropshipping, web design etc, one of the most important skills you must master is traffic generation.
Many people will say it is the most important because, without substantial traffic, your online business will be a failure.
There are many tried and tested methods for traffic generation, SEO, for example, is one of the surest ways to drive targeted traffic to your online business, but it takes time and is a long-term process (it’s my main traffic generation method).
There are other ways like social media marketing, video marketing and of course paid ads. They all have their pros and cons and they all take time to see any significant results.
This is the reason why there are many systems that promise you quick ways to drive targeted traffic with little effort.
Most of them I have found to be utter rubbish but sometimes a few do seem to work to a certain extent.
This is the case with Traffic Builder 2.0
Traffic Builder is a web-based app that promises to drive unlimited traffic to any site you want.
That is a big claim and not one that I believed, however, since this was the second version that was released, and Reddit was the traffic source they were claiming to get huge traffic from, I decided to purchase it.
Before I carry on this review, I just want to mention a few things about Reddit.
Reddit is a huge social media platform that gets over half billion visitors a month and is in the top 20 most trafficked websites according to Alexa.
Registered members (called Redditors) can post links, content, images and videos to any subreddit and these can be upvoted or downvoted by other members.
Many subreddits are huge (with millions of members) while others only have a few hundred, subreddits with little engagement are easy to post links to but they will not do much in the way of traffic generation.
Sub-reddits with more followers and high activity are much harder to post links to as most Redditors do not tolerate spam or self-promotion.
You can post your links but sooner or later a moderator will remove them and if you are a consistent spammer, your account will be terminated. Plus Reddit does not allow affiliate links unless they are cloaked, and this is basically what the Traffic Builder system does, cloak your affiliate links.
However, it is still possible to generate traffic from these larger subreddits but it takes a while as you will have to establish yourself with the community and grow your karma count.
There are other ways to post on Reddit and get huge traffic, you can purchase aged Reddit accounts and start posting on any large subreddits.
Or you can purchase Reddit marketing services that will do this for you.
I have purchased a couple of these services from blackhatworld and they do work but they are expensive and if you are on a tight budget, they are not a viable option.
So when I came upon the Traffic Builder app and saw that it promised huge traffic from Reddit, I was sceptical but intrigued and unfortunately, my curiosity got the better of me and I purchased the app.
Traffic Builder 2.0 Review
Traffic Builder 2.0 is a web-based app that will allow you to post your affiliate links to the subreddit of your choice.
Affiliate links are not generally accepted on text posts or link posts on Reddit, however, if you can manage to cloak them, your link will be accepted.
With the Traffic Builder 2.0 app, you can cloak your affiliate links and post them on to Reddit. However, as I found out, getting huge swaths of traffic is not as easy as they claim.
I found a similar method on my favourite internet marketing forum, Black Hat World, where it does not require you to purchase any kind of software. I will link to it near the end of this article. And I got more results with that free method than I did with this software!!
Back to my review of this product, the app has a clean interface and there are not many settings to configure and is easy to use, the video below shows how to app works.[one_fourth_last]
The video is from the vendor and as you may have noticed the affiliate link he posted did manage to get quite a lot of clicks.
However, as you can see from the image below my results were not as good, I actually used two Reddit accounts because spamming links (and spamming is what this is) from one account can get your account banned.
And one of my accounts got a warning, so this should have been something the vendors warned their customers about.
Like I said earlier, using this system will put your account at risk., so, if you do decide to go ahead and purchase it, I highly advise you to never use your main Reddit account.
There are 5 short training videos and a short report on Reddit and how it works.
You also get a bunch of bonuses that I really didn’t find any use for and funnily enough, one of the bonuses was a training series on WordPress from 2013!!
Traffic Builder offers three upsells which I am glad that I never purchased, although at the time I was interested in buying one of them.
Traffic Builder Pro $37 This seems like a completely different product, I still don’t understand what they were offering.
Traffic Builder Unlimited $37 – Unlimited campaigns
Traffic Builder Agency $37 – Sell this service and keep 100% of the profits.
I wouldn’t be comfortable recommending this product, especially after seeing my own results and I do have some experience with Reddit.
This is unfortunate, as I really wanted this software to work and the sales page really swayed me, this is my own fault.
This product is sold on the JVZOO affiliate network and if you have read my review of JVZOO, you would know that they do not have a solid quality control process in place and seem to let any product be sold on their marketplace.
Plus, if I had followed my own criteria for choosing good products on the JVZOO network, I would have found out that the Traffic Builder app has a pretty huge refund rate which would have saved me from wasting my money on this app.
This system could work for people who have access to aged Reddit accounts that have a high karma count. However, for people who have no experience with how Reddit works and its voting system, this product will not be a good fit.
It is unfortunate that the vendors of this product make it seem that getting traffic via this system is easy. They never mention on the sales page about Redditt’s up and down voting system and that new accounts can get banned quickly if they continue to spam.
The Reddit community is known for having little patience for spammers and that is why you need a proper strategy to market your services on Reddit.
I mentioned near the beginning of this article that I found a similar method on BHW that will not require any money to be spent but it is kind of a tedious process and you will have to work on it consistently the see results.
You can read about it here and see how it works, I must warn you, this is simply spamming subreddit with affiliate offers and you will get accounts banned but they do offer a solution to this problem.
I personally tried this method and did see some decent results, but it gets boring after a while and I decided my time would be better spent working on my online business instead of spamming Reddit.
Have you purchased Traffic Builder 2.0? What has your experience been like? Would love to hear your thoughts on this system.

Looks like another product that fails to deliver, which is a shame because the idea seems like it could work and as you have pointed out, the method on black hat world looks very similar and people seem to be having some degree of success with it. I’ll pass on this product but may try out the method you linked to.
Thanks for your comment, yes for me it did fail to deliver and I was very disappointed but the method does work as shown in the BHW thread that I have linked to,but you just have to be careful and make sure you use different Reddit accounts when posting your links.
This product did seem like it could offer bloggers a decent service, and like you, after reading it’s ‘blurb’ I felt kinda of excited.
But, as I got through your review I saw how dodgy this kind of thing could be, and ineffective. Reddit is a well moderated social network and I just can’t see this sort of thing working out for long. Did you claim a refund yourself or have you seen whether you can take the system further?
The sales page was very convincing and since I knew that getting huge traffic from Reddit is more than possible I thought this system may just work. No, I never claimed a refund, it did get me clicks to my link but not on the scale as suggested on the sales page.
Traffic is a major concern for online blog owners and it is never easy to crack the code on getting traffic consistently. For those able to master the process can start earning money beyond their wildest dreams. I have never used reddit as a source of traffic and hope to one day make use of it.
The traffic builder 2.0 seems like another software that overhypes what it has to offer. It does seem like it would be ideal for some certain situations but generally, I won’t say it is something I would like to involve myself in.
Minhaj, I’m glad I read your post till the end. Because at first I was really tempted to give Traffic Builder 2.0 a go – I like all things app based, as I find them more accessible from my mobile devices. However, as I kept reading, and after I heard that you did not gain as much traffic as you were hoping to, I a man sorry to say that I shall most probably give it a miss. I like the idea of being able to do automatic posting on Reddit, and I like the idea of being able to post my cloaked affiliate links there. But for now I’m far more intrigued to try out the free option offered by BHW.
I shall be back to let you know how I get on there. Thank you 😊
Your review says it all!
The sales page is too good to be true, but you ignored it like a lot of other people do.
Your own criteria for judging that this was too good to be true became another casualty of the sales page too, why? because you did not follow your normal business practice.
And then you say that everything this product can do for you, can be achieved with a bit of manual work through the thread you linked to on Black Hat World forum.
I enjoyed the information on Reddit and how Redditors react to spam, that is good to see!
Thank you for warning us about how easy it is to be “caught” even by experienced users, by the advertising of Traffic Builder 2.
Trust your instincts I say!
Thanks for this review. I’ve not bought the traffic builder 2.0 before. However, this article reminds me of when I first tried my hands on cpa marketing, it wasn’t easy generating traffic to the offers and I was lured to check out some sites that promised traffic I paid for which only turned out to be bot traffic. I have since moved on from cpa marketing, but I’ll check out the black hat world method you posted incase I need to generate leads for anything sometime.
Thank you for sharing this.
This traffic builder came on my radar while “searching” for ways to build traffic to my website, and after watching the video, I was very suspicious. I did my own research and ended up on your website.
I knew it! This is just another one of these systems promising something that has no value. From your own results I see that the only thing I would benefit from this one is to lose access to my Reddit account! And I agree with your statement: “my time would be better spent working on my online business”!
Well thank you for the heads up, I will stay away!
Hi Minhaj, What I have done first that I’ve bookmarked your site. You have done a fantastic review with real experience about Traffic Builder 2.0 review. As you say traffic is very important when building an online business and its always nice if a system can help you get more of it, however, after reading your review I think I will give Traffic Builder a pass.
I always thought that JVZoo offer better product quality compared to Clickbank. From this review, that doesn’t seem to be the case. This product talks about unlimited traffic but its just spamming Reddit and hoping for the best, not to mention that your Reddit accounts can get banned. Its better if you learn how to generate long term traffic techniques rather than look for quick and ineffective solutions.
Hi Minhaj, this sounded so promising! I can only imagine the sales pitch that convinced you to buy it would have been impressive. It sounds like just another JVZoo overhyped product that fails to deliver. I have to say I find that with JVZoo – there’s often a whole lot of hype and a complete lack of substance. I am always wary of them.
Thanks for sharing your experience with Traffic Builder 2.0, I will definitely avoid that one.
I wouldn’t agree to such a claim because I have used Reddit quite for some time and if you ever try your lucky and post any sort of affiliate links, then, you are risking your account. Tried once to post an affiliate link and received more than 200 down votes and received a warning from one of the moderators.
Reddit is one of the most difficult platforms to post affiliate links, it requires to much time to build credibility
Thank you so much for the great review, it will help many
Thanks for this write-up, it was quite apt and straight to the point, I totally agree with statement that without substantial traffic one’s online business will be a failure. As a result of this fact lots of scammers have filled that traffic niche and are getting people off their hard earned money.
Thanks once again for giving an unbiased review, allowing readers to see the pros and cons before making our choice
Sometime ago l received an email from JVzoo promoting Traffic Builder 2.0. l was not convinced after reading their sale page as they have hyped with unlimited traffic from Reddit which l had no experience with Reddit at all. Your review has confirmed my curiosity was right.
I would rather works for SEO to generate traffic although it might take some time to see the results. Further, l have bookmarked your site to see whether you have found better method to drive traffic.
All the best to you!
Thank you for sharing your experience with Traffic Builder.Traffic is really a very important aspect of online business because as you said, without people visiting your site, your business is dead.
I have come across this product while searching for faster ways to drive traffic to my site. However, I did not consider buying it at that time as I wanted to know more about it and what others who tried it have to say. Based on your results and recommendation, it has become more clear to me now that Traffic Builder is not what I’m looking for.
Again, thank you for making it easier for me to decide.
Thanks for the Traffic Builder 2.0 review! Yes, without traffic, no online business would survive, that is why I think so many dodgy software is released promising you unlimited traffic with little effort.
Traffic Builder 2.0 looks like a decent software but as your reviews has shown, it does not work as expected. I think it is best to put your effort in tried and tested ways of generating traffic instead of looking for short cuts.
Thanks for this review.
Thanks for the review. I purchased Traffic Builder 3.0 and discovered it does absolutely nothing. I have repeatedly sought support and all I get is fobbing off. Then I found your blog post. So my review is this: it’s a complete scam. It does nothing to -promote posts on subreddits despite big claims and I feel completely ripped off. Steer clear.
