    A lot of people just add “reddit” to their search query. It does work pretty well, but I realise not every Lemmy user will be willing to do that.

      As pointed out in the article, that’s not necessarily perfect, either. Lots of companies hire people to post to Reddit about their products.

        Yeah. It used to work, but now reddit is trash too now that people have figured out how to game the system there.

        The big-leaguers actually have achieved a pretty impressive level of skill with it. “I just wanted to share a big thanks to the Delta crew that saved the day for me and my fiance, let me tell the story…” “MY CAT KILLED A LEAF AND BROUGHT IT TO ME, isn’t she the best, let me share a photo coincidentally with a full McDonald’s meal artfully framed on the table behind the kitty all facing forward and perfectly in focus. Yes we’re having some McDonald’s lol, I love the McChicken”

        For sure, it is certainly a better option than SEO listicles though. If people push bad products there is always the potential for community push back.
