    Hello everyone,

    Quick question: do you think that expired Tumblr are still working for SEO? I tested this method last year with 20/30 Tumblr without any positive results so maybe it is an old trick?

    Thanks!

    me too tested with 30-40 tumblers and no results.

    P.S. my competition is medium and tumblrs are not the greatest.

    I agree. I am just wondering why some people are still using them to rank.

    theoretically they work but you shouldn't really have too many tumblrs pointing on your moneysite. keep it to 1 link per IP rule

    Expired, expired sure. But what about backlinks? That's what it matters.

    @DO067 I don't understand. You haven't seen any tumblr backlinks to your money site, or no backlinks to your tumblr?

    I didn't use Tumblr for my money site but for Tier2, and when I check my Tier 2 backlinks (on Moz or whatever), I don"t see the links I did from the Tumblr.

    From my experience, they're not as powerful as they used to be. I'd move on to other expired Web 2.0 platforms.

    well you can have more than 1, like 10, 50, depending on overall backlink profile so it looks natural, BUT, i believe each next link from the same IP is worth less and less.

    @DO067 I'd have a better chance to fuck Selena Gomez than you seeing any links in moz. Useless crawler.

    Now, what I'm interested: Do these expired tumblrs have any decent links links pointing to them? Expired means jack shit. DA 27-28 also means shit.That's the base for any tumblr which gets at least one link crawled by moz.

    I can easily scrape so called expired tumblrs with DA 27 with 1-2 shit links. But true expired tumblrs have quite a few decent links. They are like some mini-PBNs.

    What content have you added to tier 1? Is it relevant to your money site? Why don't you use them as TIER 1? From my theoretical knowledge, the more tiers there are, the less link juice will be to passed to your money site.

    If you barely have links or shitty links(to your tumblr), then that's worthless as much as a fresh tumblr, which is probably the case with these "expired tumblrs" most of the time.

    ^^ This.

    Expired web 2.0s are not as powerful as they used to be, but they still help with ranking significantly. For harder keywords, they are not enough, but as a foundation for the SEO campaign they are perfect.

    Measuring them by PA is a joke. Tumblrs have either PA of 1 or 27 (I believe), nothing in between. Most Tumblrs with PA27 do not even have any backlinks, so they are literally useless. I can send you hundreds of unregistered PA27 RD0 TF0 Tumblrs that won't help you in any way.

    Learn what CF is please, thank you. And Blogspots will get you deleted in no time. Not to mention scraping them is time consuming and pretty much useless.

    So what you are saying is that we should look for a Tumblr Blog with a couple of Backlinks and a solid TF? What do you think about Weebly or Wordpress.org ? Does the same thing apply to them as well as for blogspot? Thanks

    Only web 2.0s worth scraping are Tumblr, Weebly and maybe Overblog. Rest is either hard to get or takes a lot of resources to make it worth it.

    And yes, you should be looking at TF and RD.

    Don't spread bullcrap please. There is not a single reason why Tumblr couldn't point directly to a money site and there's way too many reasons why you shouldn't build tier 2 to your PBNs.
