    I have been doing some research the past couple months, and I couldn't help but notice all the Tumblr blogs out there on the first page of Google. Most of these blogs are blogs specifically built around 1 keyword promoting something free (most notably movies). These blogs have basically no unique content (and little at that, like 1 paragraph) and look flat out spammy, but they somehow are on page 1! One question, how do they manage this? I have yet to really fully get into Tumblr so I don't really have the most experience at it, but my attempts at doing the equivalent with blogger have all failed, so maybe I should try Tumblr?

    I don't see any particular preference to Tumblr; in fact, in my niches, you just create a web 2.0 site with any decent provider and presto, you're there on page 3-4 without doing anything else. With some SEO, it's easy to make it to the page one. After the Penguin update, Google has (perhaps undeservedly) put a lot more weight on web 2.0s, etc.

    Only preference I see is authority of root domain (tumblr) and another thing might me its loading speed.

    if you do google search for watch + Movie Name + online you will pretty much always find a tumblr blog on page 1

    I am researching other tumblr blogs today and for example I just noticed a tumblr blog in the movie niche that is ranking on first page and it has no backlinks found, how can this be? Is there some onpage SEO tricks I should learn?

    I just checked one popular new release and a tumblr blog is in 8th place. It only contains a few paragraphs which are full of spelling and grammatical errors.

    Those sites may have other backlinks giving them juice also.

    are you sure you are not seeing tailored results for you?
    There was a time when i was using tumblr blogs to make money using the plugrush method before it went wasted. That was a couple of months ago, But because of this, everytime i am looking for a picture or something, and i'm logged in my gmail... google shows me a bunch of tumblr results and it's obvious that these results are tailored for me because of my high use of tumblr (and tumblr queues on google) of the last months

    maybe this is happening to you too..

    i don't think its gonna last for long time.

    Create a blog
    Get tons of backlinks via sb,social bookmarks and we'll rank for some time.

    This is very true. I tried that and it is almost 99.9% correct. Google really likes tumblr.

    They're similar to Youtube videos in how easy they are to rank. It's probably because they're immune to common overoptimization penalties.

    Try to get some quality backlinks to your tumblr and also point some good quality web2.0 links to to your tumblr blog. Also get some social signals to it. Tumblr blog is easy to rank because its root domain have good authority.

    its possible to reach page 1 using free blog sites..

    but when the top 3 sites are not free blog sites, its kinda difficult to outrank them even if you have the same type of backlinks...
