Reddit UK Expands Its Advertising Business
Located in London, the Reddit UK office employs over 55 people. It currently has 16 open roles, most of which are related to the company’s ads business. Initially, Reddit execs spoke with advertising agencies about how to get their products or services featured on Reddit. However, they are now increasingly talking directly to their clients to offer them deals and exclusive talent.
One of the primary methods used by reddit administrators to influence the development and perception of the site is by changing the default subreddits. Currently, users can browse all posts by default or select a specific subreddit to see their most recent posts. Using this methodology, the reddit community is able to determine the activity levels of individual pages by subreddit.
The Humor subreddit is home to funny videos and memes. The Gaming subreddit contains information on video, board and card games. Tuesday and Wednesday are the best times to post in these subreddits. Finally, the Movies subreddit is a great place to find information on movies.
Moderation on Reddit UK is perform by humans. As such, the moderators are often divided by opinions and have trouble making decisions. However, when it comes to understanding the process of moderation, these disagreements can provide valuable insights. A recent study showed that the top ten per cent of moderators spent a median of three to 40 minutes each day on the site. Moreover, two out of every three actions are taken by the top ten per cent.
There are several tasks performed by moderators that are invisible to users. These are recorded in the mod logs. By studying these logs, researchers are able to assess the volume of the moderators’ work.
As Reddit expands its advertising capabilities into the UK market, the company has also increased its staff. The London office has grown from three to 20 salespeople and is now located in Holborn. The company is also building direct selling relationships with the biggest advertising networks outside the US.

According to Reddit, the UK office is expect to grow by more than 50% by the end of 2020.
