    I used to put a shorturl in the post comments in every post but since I got mass bans I have been thinking how to do it more under the radar. I also tried watermarking pics but got banned just as quick. Unfortunately these other attempts have proven next to worthless in terms of getting any traffic.

    I have now tried putting banner links on the actual blogs. The problem is that hardly anyone goes to the blog since you can just click a post and scroll the pics in the side panel. To remedy this I thought to put the blog link in the comments of each post as I noticed quite a few other tumblrs do this. To my dismay I realised this will probably have very little effect cos even when you click on the link in the post in tumblr it still doesn't take you to the blog but rather just opens up the blog in the right hand side panel again...which has non of my affiliate ads on.

    I have tried putting popovers/unders on some blogs but again they won't come up unless someone clicks once on the blog I don't think.

    Any other ideas? I was trying to avoid going back to the outright spamming it in every post but I see little other choice. I will wait a few more days and see if my traffic gets better however I am not optimistic.

    great way, tested this and no improvement in traffic, may be because of my niche....
