    Would you consider reregistering an expired pr blog (like tumblr etc) blackhat? I'm planning on using some as tier 1..

    How important is the name of the blog when it comes to my niche?

    Can a blog called "horses.tumblr.com" still be used efficiently in, lets say a diet niche? If I posted relvant articles ofc. Does it matter at all?

    Using horse blog for diet can be contradictory, irrelevant especially what Google is fighting against and the unprofessional from you to your viewers if you ever hope to see conversion from the content/blog.

    Why don't you see if you can setup another page on the same account on Tumblr.

    Expired blogs are excellent. Someone had a great list posted here the other day, I looked a few up and they were free indeed.

    Yeah but its only the subdomain name. Nothing on the site will have anything to do with horses.

    And it will only be used as a backlink to my money site.

    Is it still an issue?

    What do you mean?

    "Backlinking" is considered blackhat by Google.

    But yeah, expired 2.0's work well if they have some nice links.

    So making a blog comment with a backlink is considered blackhat? :confused:

    The point is that it doesn't matter what is considered blackhat.

    How about using multiple blogs on the same account? Will tumblr punish me for having like 10 pr blogs reregistered and used the way i described?
