For avid Redditors, connecting to the Reddit APIs via Google Data studio is a great way to dashboard 1) User-specific metrics/dimensions (Karma, status, etc), 2) Reddit post data (recent post data related to a specific keyword), and 3) Subreddit stats (subscribers, active users, comments, etc.). Utilizing Google Data Studio to monitor specific reddit topics is a great way to filter for only what you need to see.

Choosing the Best Reddit Connector for Data Studio
Reddit, aka the homepage of the Internet, is a popular user forum which subreddits on just about any topic that you can think of. For this reason, many of us marketers seek to dashboard KPIs, news topics, etc. from Reddit and using Data Studio is a great way to do it. When choosing a Reddit connector, consider these items.
- Data Points: First, what are interested in reporting on? If it’s simply creating a dashboard which monitors specific topics or subreddits, just about any connector will do.
- Direct Connection vs Data Warehousing: With some connectors, you connect directly to the Reddit’s API in real time. This means that you’ll pull data from Reddit each time your report loads. However, if you want to trend over time (karma growth, etc.), you may want to consider a Reddit connector which will warehouse (store) data daily so you can report over time.
For Reddit, we like SuperMetrics but other connectors will get the job done as well.
