Use the Reddit Review connector to retrieve and analyze comments posted on https://www.reddit.com.
This data connector supports only the US Reddit web site.
Reddit does not impose limitations on the amount of data that you can pull, but for subreddits with a very large number of comments you may want to limit it yourself using the Comment Limit option or by narrowing the date range.
If you have issues with no data, try widening your date range on the second page of the wizard.
When setting up the connector, provide the URL of the subreddit for which you want to analyze comments.
- Reddit URL: On the Reddit web site, navigate to the subreddit and from the address bar, copy the URL, then paste it into this field.
Only a subreddit URL may be used, for example: https://www.reddit.com/r/NameOfSubreddit/. The connector cannot take a URL that links directly to a post. To analyze a particular post within your subreddit, you can use Filters.
- Comment Limit: To avoid returning too much data, it is a good practice to set a limit on the number of comments returned.
You can change your date range on the second page of the wizard, or optionally Schedule data crawls to update your data stream periodically.
This connector returns the following fields that you can use in analysis.
Returns the date and time on which the post was crawled.
