Voting Ring


A voting ring is when you get people you know to upvote things for you on popular websites that use upvotes such as Hacker News and Reddit rather than waiting for organic upvotes. This is done to game the ranking algorithms of these websites and make your content appear at the top so others are able to see it.

Wow. I got shadow banned from Reddit when I got caught in a voting ring as a result of asking everyone I know on Facebook to upvote my post.
