    I have 35k followers, and i get about 200-300 visits a day on average and thats when i dont post. I have adsense and a maxbounty ad running. I have a feeling im being shaved alot with Maxbounty. But my question is. Can someone help me with a method to make at least 10-20$ daily?

    I suggest google adsense.

    PM me your site and I'll take a look over it and tell you if there is anything I can help you with. But with 200-300 uniques a day your probably not going to make much on tumblr. The traffic is pretty poor quality.

    I seem to be getting a lot of visits to one of my blogs via Tumblr.

    In StatCounter I keep seeing people coming from:
    Code:
    http://www.tumblr.com/dashboard
    and via Tags on there too.

    Looking for any updates on this.

    I'm still new at all this so I guess what I'm doing is an organic approach to it. The actual blog itself is just me spouting random stuff(regular blog) but then I have a page created which links to a few affiliate things (terrible ones up at this point but I think the theory is solid). I'm not spamming random users with 'Buy this/visit this page' stuff but I'll talk about it on occasion and reference my links page.

    Can anyone clue me in if there are better methods etc. I'd be interested in finding out if there were a way to automate my 'normal' posting. Maybe auto reblogging and adding a short comment. *shrug* Dunno.

    Input?

    Man I've been trying to monetize tumblr for a long while. It seems the usual blog methods don't work well with tumblr. I hope this thread doesnt die. Good luck to you.

    Well... since no one likes to answer (getting used to it now), I redid my blog there and in three days have gotten up to 200 visitors per day. Lots of traffic to the stuff I have posted up there. I think the main trick is finding something that will convert with the traffic you have. Tumblr isn't likely to be big spenders so I focus on stuff that pays for signups. I'm still tweaking it to find the best combo but I will say this... the Queue is your friend. It takes me about 20 minutes to post up 2-3 days worth of posts. So even if I do nothing else at all, I've got posts happening every half hour for three days.

    Obviously this isn't the absolute best place to make money, but it seems like a nice training ground. Not to mention you don't have to spend a dime.

    I'd like to know that as well. Unfortunately tumblr just passed the new regulations, but I'm currently at nearly 10k followers and about 250k pageviews a month. Still, adsense doesn't seem to be too profitable. Are there any other options to better monetize my tumblr blog?

    ^ Well, thanks to Ms Gaga, it's not that easy as it was a couple of weeks ago. Normally you could follow up to 5,000 blogs. The limit was reached within 2-3 days and then you simply use the missing e add on and see who's not following you back, unfollow them and start following again. Have a good niche, do the follow/unfollow + post constantly and you can easily get to the 10k. Problem at the moment is that you can only follow 200 per day now, so at the moment I'm only "generating" about 250 new followers a day.

    Completely forgot this thread sorry! I didn't use any scripts or tools, since I simply didn't know of them before. I just followed manually, which definitely took some time.

    Any news on proper ways to make some money other than adsense?
