    Hey,

    i recently set up a blog on tumblr ( Well 4 days ago ) and since then its received about 300 UV's which isn't amazing and also the stats on adsense aren't too good either.

    Im literally on posting photo's on the blog so would a wordpress blog be better to use in terms of SEO and also adsense?

    Im kind of a noob to all of this but have been dabbling so to speak in it for about 10 months, but not to the extent I'm at now.

    Cheers, all help is appreciated.

    Yea its really easy to post only pics. There is tons of options with wordpress, look around bhw for plugins and on YT you can find tutorials on how to instal wordpress to your hosting.

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    So, if I'm looking to earn money through adsense or through other ways(which I'm still not sure what exactly these other ways are) then I'm best doing it through wordpress and not tumblr?

    Is it because tumblr is a lot easier to optimise or what?

    I would personally use Wordpress and host it yourself.

    It will give you an unlimited amount of flexibility in terms of what you can do "Plugin Wise" that can help with your SEO and just make for a better overall user experience... which can help with returning visitors and spreading word of mouth.

    Not to mention, integrating all the social networking features like Facebook, Twitter, etc... which can help with SEO. Not sure if Tumblr has all that or not.

    Good luck!!

    There are a lot of wordpress plugins already that can improve your site. You can use Easy SEO WP and All in one SEO pack for your SEO in wordpress or you can search other SEO plugins also and choose it basing on its rating. In wordpress also there are widget-ready themes that there are sections for your adsense code, banners, etc. I think it's also easy to post photos in wordpress.
