Frequently Asked Questions
How long after I submit my link before it appears on rankt?
New comments are picked up every 5 minutes. Editing an existing comment with a new link will also be picked up within 5 minutes.
I submitted my link more than 5 minutes ago, but it's still not on rankt, where is it?
There are only two possible reasons why it's not on rankt:
- 1. It's actually deleted by the mods (check incognito) <- 95% chance it's this one
- 2. You've posted more than once in a thread and your links are being ignored by rankt. So be sure to check you only have one.
Also, never delete, only edit. Deleting will never be faster than editing an existing comment.
If I have a new link to post to a thread I've already posted to, should I delete the old comment and create a new one or edit my existing comment?
Always edit your existing comment instead of posting a new comment. If you create a new comment, your new link will not appear on rankt for 6 hours.
Make sure that you always only have one comment per referral thread. If you have more than one, none of your links will appear on rankt.
Can I submit a link directly to rankt instead of through reddit?
Why is the # of links on rankt lower than the reddit thread?
The reddit comment count for any given thread shows the pre-moderated count of all comments made
in a particular thread. That is, before AutoMod/ReferralLinkBot have removed any (not enough karma, invalid format, etc.)
The count on rankt is the # of valid links left after moderation is done. Therefore, the count on rankt will always
be lower (and in some cases much lower) than reddit thread.
I've checked my link after logging out (or using incognito), and it's been removed, what should I do?
First thing, check to make sure that the ReferralLinkBot hasn't removed your link and sent you a message. It will usually
tell you why your link has been removed. If there isn't anything, head on over to the
Referral Problems Reporting/Discussion Mega thread
