[Craigslist filter] Asking for a friend: Why would someone slip "reddit" at the bottom of a Craigslist room for rent ad posted in San Francisco, CA? SEO? Magic keyword?

My guess would be because they're an active redditor and probably want to throw that out there to attract other active redditors as 'we have stuff in common' thing.

See Reddit.

Cut and paste error?

Maybe he/she mentioned that they have a room for rent on Reddit, and then said "Go over the SF Craigslist and do a search for 'reddit' and you will find out all about this amazing room overlooking lush clouds of pot smoke and The Rock."

Best answer: Are you talking about this one? I think the cough shows that it's just a hint that says "Hey, I'm an all right guy - I'm from the Internet."

Clearly they are ignorant of the properly mysterious code-words to identify oneself as a Redditer.

If it's the one with the *cough* tags, I'm guessing it means he's 420 friendly; a rastaman; a hophead, he's whacked out on goofballs. He smokes marijuana, I'm saying.

Best answer: He's a semi-introverted nerd that smokes weed. He's looking for someone to mostly not bother him, but understand funny memes and not care about weed smoking on premises.

Specifically on Reddit, look for r/trees.
