    Let's say I go to a page for a certain tag like landscape. Then I go down the list and follow all the users on the page, go to the next page, and follow all the users and continue. How many users would follow back doing this method? Would it be less than 15% follow backs? Is this how people gain followers and traffic to their profile?

    tumblr is not twitter or Instagram - 15% is way too high, maybe 5% if that .

    I create my accounts to look like run of the mill Tumblr Girls and get at 15% Followback rate daily. People like following real looking people opposed to niche blogs IME

    this is going to depend on what the account posts but 15% would be a VERY good return so don't expecct that much to follow you back
    also where you get your list from and the type of users you follow is going to make a difference, look or people who will be receptive to what you post on the account
