    What is with some expired blogs on Tumblr, they return a 404 but when I try to register them it says already registered!

    Any idea why that happens?

    may be someone took the url & didn't upload any content. You get 404 error if someone doesn't upload anything.
    some people say sometimes tumblr permanently blocks a url or releases it after a few months.

    happens all the time, someone has re-registered it and not uploaded any content.
    i've been at it for months and only gotten 4 or 5 decent ones.

    try registering an account with another username and use the account page to quickly try and register all the ones you've scraped.
    another option is to "create a new blog" if you don't care about being able to reblog and such on that page.
