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.
