    I run a sexy girls tumblr blog - http://onlythehottest.tumblr.com/ - and am starting to make a bit of money from it on adultfriendfinder and was just looking for some advice on how I can promote it and make it more popular.

    I'm happy with the content and I know people will like it and want to follow it if they find it, it's just a case of getting it out there.

    Here's a few tips from me:

    • Have an interesting URL/username which makes people want to click it. Mine isn't particularly interesting but I haven't changed it because I want to keep all my current backlinks. If you're making a new one though, give it a name which makes people so intreagued they want to click it!
    • Literally ask people to follow you. This used to work really well (if you sent them a nice, not too obvious message) but tumblr have now got new spam measures in place meaning that even if you think you're sending loads of messages, they might not even get delivered so this is a waste of time on a large scale now. A couple a day is good though.
    • Submit quality pictures/videos/posts to popular tumblr blogs in your niche. If they're good, they'll post them and people do click the link back to your blog.
    • When reblogging, change the source to your URL and if it's a picture, set the click through link to your site. Changing the source gives you all the advantages of reblogging as opposed to saving and uploading (not pissing people off, having your link in the notes of people who've previously reblogged it) whilst also having the benefits of being the original uploader (when people reblog it from you, it'll say you're the source).
    • Get a nice theme, simple is usually good and make a nice logo. If you look at mine, I made a nice logo and used a theme which allows me to have big pictures which is important for my blog.
    • Mass follow people in hope of a follow back. I don't do this personally because I only follow blogs which I actually want to follow and post pictures I might want to reblog but I've tried it on other blogs and it works to an extent.
    • Use the queue feature. It means you don't have to spend nearly as long blogging and you can automate it to an extent.

    Those are my tips and I'd much appreciate if anyone could give me some tips on how to promote my blog or any feedback on the actual blog and how to improve it/make more people want to follow it!

    Thanks!

    Juicy Ads are hard to make cash flow. I would recommend going directly to the companies that advertise THROUGH Juicy. So go to X-Art and FTV and scroll to the page bottoms and look for their programs through CCBill.

    Also, tag your posts as best as possible, 2,000 follower sin 6 months doesn't seem to be a good gain for adult tumblr. I am at 1,600 on my 40 day old blog already. Spend a lot of work tagging your photos really well.

    I'm on 1200 and I can't remember how old mine is. AdultFriendFinder seems decent though. Just had a watch of your video and it's really good, definitely going to give it a try!

    What kind of tags would you recommend and do you copy and paste the same tags on every post? I ususally just tag ass, tits, blowjob, boobs, sex etc lol

    You know I have found that I am getting a stronger following after taking OFF the really explicit sex stuff. I usually use: Sexy, beautiful, gorgeous, woman, girl, boobs, tits, topless, models, body, amazing. I think my mix of fashionable women, and slight nudity appeals to broader audience. I get messages and questions about everything from "how can i get abs like that girl you just posted" to "omg do you know that girls name I want to find more"...

    So I have adult followers, and ones into fashion, girls, beauty, etc. Still need to get rid of the blog though because I'm not monetizing it and dont have time to keep it up with my others non-adult one doing way better.

    My adult tumblr blog (Adult Pyramid) is fairly new and I have garnered several followers. 1st, I have posts queued for a few days in advance, using the queue features allows my blog to stay relevant with constant posts. 2nd, I always have my posts tweeted to my twitter account where I have active followers already interested in adult material. 3rd, tags are extremely important, that's how I get most my visitors and followers by using descriptive tags that are also picked up by google. 4th, I put social media buttons on my posts and I use stumbleupon. 5th, as mentioned above, it's all about patience.

    My tumblr blog concept is a bit different, in addition to posting adult pix, my main goal to review adult videos that are also free online. I take screenshots of the videos and post my logo on each image and Then I link using linkbucks. That's how I've been monetizing. I also use juicyads but I think it's only good if you have over a thousand unique visitors a day...I've only started using it though. I'm still looking for other methods.
