    I see tumblr's getting indexed in a few days usually. Sometime even in the same day.
    You just posted so why are you worrying about indexing already?

    Tumblr takes few days to get indexed in their own system. You need some like reblogs and followers. Once your blog is in tumblr's tag search feature your blog post will be indexed on same day by other search engines.

    Hey, maybe this will help you:

    One thing you can do to make your tumblr indexing significantly faster, even down to seconds/minutes sometimes is to add your blog to G Webmaster tools and fetch your post as G. There are multiple posts and pages online that show how you can do this, you can look them up, now once you know it works.

    Basically you need to have a g. webmaster account; open your tumble and go to edit its theme;
    put your tumblr url "myblog.tumblr.com'' in the tool as your domain and go to the verification part;
    you must then choose the alternative method and copy the html snippet in your theme's code below the head section;
    then you click and verify it; you can also add a sitemap for better future indexing or whatever if you want, it's usually "sitemap1.xml".

    So after this you go to the site page in the tool and on the left, in the menus you have to find the tab that says fetch as google. It's in the ones at the bottom. There you paste the part of the post url that is after the domain, like - post/6543/ghfdsfg352... And you fetch it and then send it for indexing. I use the option where it fetches only the page (with the 500 per month limit).

    You do that once and check if the post gets indexed after a few minutes (5-10) and if it doesn't do this 1-2 times more after a window of 1h.

    That should get your post indexed very fast. Also keep in mind that posts with poor content may not be indexed for days. Meaning you have to have a not-spammy looking page with 100 word max content, but rather a nice post with nice content and maybe even some links out to authority sites. Once indexed you can edit them if you want, ofc.

    That should set you up.
    Cheers

    Maybe because he wants to start building a backlink pyramid with the tumblr as a tier 1 and wants to receive the juice from it and the other tiers as fast as possible.

    Thanks...

    Well maybe because I am not so familiar with tumblr...

    I registered there and came across to so called primary and secondary blog. I didn't know where to post o that the my tumblr article be indexed in google (so that earn money directly from tumblr + clickbank). It was not the only problem! I even didn't know which one to use to write articles for tire link building -ie using tumbler as my tier1 and then use GSA spamming to rank my link which would be embedded in the tumblr-..

    Just takes a little longer than usual for a reply but as you can see, they do appear eventually.
    Got some good advice so far

    Thanks for your great info buddy... You are really helpful

    First please let me ask 2 questions...
    1: Regarding my above post, should I use primary Or secondary blog please?
    2: If a few of my articles are duplicated articles -taken from my vendors website and he has given me the permission to use them- then can I spinning them so that they not only be indexed but get ranked as well?

    Thanks I surely will search for the method you are talking about...

    So what you mean by the therm spammy and poor articles?

    So by "maybe even some links out to authority sites" you mean that I should add say a few Wikipedia and other high authority Links at the end of my tumblr articles? Is that what you meant buddy?

    Thanks mate:).

    Sure. So first things first:

    1. By doing a quick search in G for "tumblr primary vs secondary" while I write this reply (as you should do too, btw), because I haven't seen this before, I've come to notice that secondary blogs are used for some different kinds of projects and have different features. You can read about this in this official tumblr explaination on blog management - https://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/blog_management.

    Having said that, I think you'd benefit more from using a primary blog, because you'll have tumblr's main social features active, i.e. follow, like, reply, ask, and submit.

    Here's a very detailed and on-the-point quote that I've also found on page one while looking for that KW in G:
    So my recommendation to use different tumblr accounts all set up as "primary" blogs checks out.

    2. SEO is a vast plane and methods and accepted ways of doing it come and go, but even with my limited knowledge on it, since about 2009 I can tell you this - duplicate content is almost always 101% not good for long-term ranking and the efforts associated with it are far from sustainable.
    You should avoid using duplicate content whenever you can (overlook this only if you're a high-ranking super authority content curation site, maybe not even then..) Even with permission to use them, don't rely solely on them to be put on a page and get results, common sense.

    Now to follow along with your actual question. Creating a spun version of them Can actually create a keyword related, LSI related, SEO-friendly content for you to use on your tiers (best case scenario - Tier 2, Tier 3 and so on). Having one done right can even get you content for Tier 1, but that Always (IMO) requires manual work to follow if you're using a spinner, or just a lot of manual work to make something new from something old.

    Yes, you can spin your vendors' articles and use them and get them indexed. Getting them ranked, maybe yes, but that is a whole different ball game and relies very much on your systematic efforts. But can be done, yes, to be precise in my answer.


    To save you the hassle of the search for the indexing method, I'll post you the links here:
    How to add your tumblr blog to G Webmaster tools - http://christianferrer.blogspot.com/2012/02/tutorial-on-how-to-add-tumblr-on-google.html
    Index your content with Fetch as google tool - http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2326164/Index-Your-Content-Faster-With-the-Fetch-as-Google-Tool


    With the term "spammy and poor articles" I refer to:
    - spammy - highly and poorly spun, humanly unreadable, keyword stuffed articles; just KW and tags stuffing
    - poor - mainly low length and on a different topic/subject, just to use them around your link.


    Some links out to authority sites - Yes. Wikipedia, other authority sites in your niche. Like bitcoin.org if you're talking about bitcoins.
    And not only in the end of your article, but also as contextual links with proper relevant ancors throughout your articles.


    I'm really glad I can help.
    Have a good one!

    It was a great post my friend... Thank you sooooooooo much for your full response.
    Just one thing please. I couldn't understand that last line. "And not only in the end of your article, but also as contextual links with proper relevant ancors throughout your articles."

    What it means and how it is done please?

    No problem. But you should really try to figure small thing like this yourself. If not for my fast replies, you would often save a lot of time and also actually learn a lot of other things in the process.

    Contextual links are links within some context. Like a link with a word, get it?

    I've made a typo in my post (looks like I missed that one in my editing) and wrote ancor instead of anchor. Look that up.

    Anchor text and contextual links - it's really simple. Look at this text below. The link in it is a contextual link and the text used to make the link is the anchor text:
    "Epilot is a really nice dude and I wish him great success in IM and CB."

    You are welcome.

    Thanks!

    And you're absolutely correct. Calling it hyperlink is just another way to say link or contextual link.

    IMO the term 'contextual link' is more often used here because of the majority of people dealing with SEO and backlinking. As you know, there are many types of backlinks and they all have their (different) value and purpose. And because you're trying to make something particular here I've been explaining it like that. So that you get it.

    Cheers, dude, I'll be seeing you around. Hit me up if you need any more help.

    I have use GSA SER, and by the term contextual I was thinking that it just means a website with contents not just a naked link... It seems that by your enlightenment about contextual links I should think what a contextual content is then!!!?

    Thank you so much buddy, I added you as my friend just because you are great!
