Years after it introduced the ability to buy and target ads across the platform, Reddit is officially launching its first keyword research tool.
The new AI-powered tool allows you to better target the people who will see your ads and improve their performance – meaning you pay for fewer irrelevant impressions or clicks.
Wise advertisers can also use the tool to brainstorm new ways to connect with their audience which may have been previously elusive.
How Does It Work?
The Keyword Suggestions tool is being rolled out as a feature available in the Reddit Ads Manager – the platform’s self-service tool for creating and managing ads.
The tool uses machine learning and natural language processing to compile lists of relevant keywords and to filter out irrelevant keywords based on the original context of the keyword.
Once done, the tool compiles these keyword options and sorts the list based on the number of monthly Reddit views each keyword has received.
How This Differs From Other Tools
Third-party keyword research tools for Reddit have been available for some time, though all third-party tools will inevitably have gaps in the data they have to work with. Meanwhile, Reddit can theoretically use raw data to provide the most accurate keyword recommendations for users.
The tool is rolling out now for advertisers to put it to the test and see how its keyword recommendations compare and whether they can effectively drive more ad engagement.
