    Hi,

    I have scraped 50 tumblrs above PA 30 with great links and ordered the tumblr accounts to rename them. But have tried all the usernames but tumblr doesn't allow me to take anyone. Below are the errors I get:

    1. Try something else, that one is spoken for.
    2. Someone beat you to that username.
    3. That's a good one, but it's taken (even though the URL returns 404)

    What might be the reason? Is there any chance that the account I bought has some issues?

    Regards
    Naser

    Hmm they might be taken, but a 404 error suggests something else is going on.
    Check Tumblr is up and running properly

    Try
    downforeveryoneorjustme dot com
    or
    isitdownrightnow dot com

    or similar. The 404's suggest something other than a simple user name taken issue here.

    404 can also mean it was banned so you can't re-register it. Check my Sig for some software that can check if they're available or not :)

    Yes, may be the IP that has been registered previously, but what I think the usernames which you are selecting are already used or may be they are not allowing to rename urls.
    let see what others will say here.

    Hi Scritty,

    I have tried everything, it shows a tumblr page which has a not found error. Guess those usernames are banned or may be an SEO dumped those names recently.


    Thanks for the software Jamie, checking it out now.

    No Suresh, since I am able to rename using a random name, but not the ones which I have scraped and which are having cool links.
