Got PA 50 Tumblr with amazing links. Should I use it as money site?

    I scrape lots of web 2.0 for Tier 1 link building.
    Recently in one of my scrapes, I found a PA 50+ tumblr with high quality links.
    The tumblr in question has links that money can't buy. I guess that tumblr went viral and has editorial (in content) links from following sites:
    abcnews.go.com
    nbcnews.com
    dailydot.com
    huffingtonpost.com
    teenvogue.com
    national.suntimes.com
    complex.com
    newsone.com
    reviewjournal.com
    and many

    So I was thinking of using it as a money site to promote affiliate product. Now I have some questions and I would appreciate if any seasoned tumblr user can answer them.

    1) Is it possible to rank tumblr site for affiliate related keywords?
    I know that with right SEO and patience anything is possible. I am asking that in a general sense. Is tumblr a good parasite?

    2) How tolerant tumblr is with affiliate links?
    I have seen that tumblr encourage affiliate links in dashbord settings. As per recent changes, they even add their pwn affiliate links. So I think that they will be ok with affiliate links. But again I would like a feedback from someone who is actually using a tumblr parasite.

    I'd rather use it as a PBN

    That was the purpose of my scraping. But perhaps I am having a second though about it because the backlinks it has are wet dreams of any SEO professional like me. :p

    Thing is if you start getting too much traffic it'll be easier for Tumblr to detect your site and if they do there's no guarantee that they wont delete it.

    I don't think heavy traffic would be a problem for tumblr.

    Quick question: are tumblrs still passing link juice after the redirect changes?

    Yes they are. I think there was a case study about that too. Let me see if I can find it.

    Algo? Let's play with you.
    Using it as a moneysite will put your site at risk forever probably, because who knows when tumblr may remove it for some reason?
    Just use it as a PBN.

    That is my concern. As far of now, I haven't found anything on tumblr deleting blogs because of affiliate links. Thats why I asked BHW community.

    Could be money site depending on the niche. Tumblrs dominate the SERPs for adult gif keywords, and quite a few have affiliate links.

    Please try to avoid directly use your money site as backlink to like those site.. You can use your backlinks as tier1 links ...

    Use it as a pumper site with a link to your main site as well as acting as your secondary money site.

    Wouldn't really bother with it as a money site. Any affiliate link and it will be gone before you say "I got screwed".

    I haven't seen any Tumblr ranking for good 2 years now. In the past, the Serps were full of Tumblrs, but after they became more strict with moderation... yeeeh... bad idea. Use it for link building purposes only.
