SnoopSnoo was a web-based tool that offers analytics on a Reddit user or a subreddit based on Reddit’s public data. You can extract all kinds of information about the users, such as target audience, including marital status, place of residence, etc.
Basically the site does two things :
- Aggregate your reddit submissions and comments, and graphically display resulting data.
- Parse text in your comments and submissions, and extract relevant and potentially interesting information.
Since its death back in 2009, people have been searching for a replacement. This article will round up a few alternatives to SnoopSnoo so you can add Reddit analysis back in your workflow.

- Does RedditMetis log your data permanently?
No, your data is logged for a few hours in the cache
- Why does it says u0022user not foundu0022?u0026lt;
First thing to check would be the spelling of the username. Make sure you did not prepend the u/- prefix on usernames. If it still doesn't work, you may have been shadowbanned from Reddit.
- Why is it called redditmetis?
