    Hello,

    I just wonder, is it okay if I attach my adult affiliate links as clickthrough and source to images on Tumblr?

    I don't want to be banned...

    So?

    A lot of Tumblr blogs contain porn pictures. :D

    You can try to cloak your aff link then insert it into your Tumblr blog.

    I know, I have myself a big blog with porn material but the question was if it is secure to post affiliate links...

    I just want to avoid to be banned.

    Tumblr will ban any external links that are not from tumblr even it's not affiliating. I had my sfw blog banned just by having a link to my website when they claim it's affiliating when it's not

    I think you can post 1 or two affiliate links. Abusing it will of course, get your blog deleted.

    Tumblr tos does state affiliate marketing is not allowed. Sometimes they let it fly. Other times they ban. It is risky.

    I am afraid to post adult links when in doubt because I am afraid I would get arrested for posting somewhere that minors can see it. Can they do that? One time I thought I was on an adult chat line and got a scary warning, even though I saw others advertising the same thing. Maybe they were paying for theirs, I don't know. How risky is this?

    You can read the guidelines for registration at tumblr. I think that would remove the doubts.

    No, you are wrong, we can attach outside links, but sometimes they may ban for violating the rules.

    You can post your link but to stay under the radar you should do no more than 5 post a day with your link.

    If tumblr thinks your sole purpose of your blog is to profit then they will ban you but they do allow your links

    Hello - there should be no problem for you to post your adult updates on tumblr. There is plenty of adult stuff in there.
    For example I have my own stuff posting in there too. Hint: if you are using wordpress - then make sure to have a plugin - Jetpack installed - it should be giving you the option to post automatically on the social networks around. But have in mind that posting on some of those would have you banned. For example posting adult stuff on Facebook is forbidden.

    Also - posting adult stuff on tumblr is forbidden too, but it's allowed. Or it's not allowed, but it's not forbidden either - if you prefer.

    I had my NSFW tumblr for 2 years and a half, 73k followers. I had a link to an external site in my posts, outside of my niche, a banner for that site + another link for that site in my sidebar for a month with 10 posts a day so around 300 continuous posts and nothing happen.

    I think it depends how established your tumblr is, once I've hit a certain number of followers they started to treat me way different. If you want to be even more safe, you can pass the link trough a bit.ly and delete the link from the post after a few hours.

    I've had accounts banned in the past for posting direct aff links on tumblr SFW & NSFW
    I now have over over 50 authority accounts & while 70% of the images link to my money blog (absolutely not directly to aff offer)
    the other 30 link to each (the tumblr blogs) this system seems to work extremely well & i'm currently working on scaling it way up. Hope this helps.

    It is better if you read guidelines first, and then move forward.
