    Hey !

    So, i was able to built a "sorta famous" blog, that brings alot of people, and i get re-blogged alot.

    My stats are :

    -4000 UV daily / 124000 UV monthly
    -25000 PV / 775000 PV monthly
    -500,000 notes monthly ( Could have huge CTR )

    I thought about monetizing it, but i don't want my blog to get taken down, because i worked really hard on building it. So, i have few quiestions for "adult veterans "

    1) Should i monetize it ? Is it just playing with fire, and my blog will eventually get deleted soon or later ?

    2) If i would monetize it, how much could i expect per month ?

    EDIT : TYPO ( 4000 PV b4/ 4000UV now )

    With a blog that size you don't want to lose it so I wouldn't use some of the more traditional mathods like plugrush or direct clickthroughs on the images. What I'd do is set up an adult site with whatever monetization you want and then start watermarking every image you upload to tumblr with that website's url. With 500,000 notes monthly you'll be able to get your images plastered all over tumblr and then reused on other sites, creating a traffic source which will last even if your blog gets deleted.

    Your tumblr is huge in term of notes, but your traffic is almost nothing to make good money, and on the adult niche, you need a lot of traffic to make big money (unless you are in a very underground niche) and by a lot I'm saying 20k, 30k UV a day. With 4k pageviews a day, you will be deleted before you make $100 with your tumblr. I know that because I am on this niche and I have a big tumblr too (which I won't risk to make pennies). The answers:

    1. Yes, you will be deleted and the harder you monetize your tumblr, the faster they will catch you.
    2. $50 to $150, unless you REALLY know what are you doing. Adult niche is not for beginners.

    Hope I helped you.

    Build an adult website and use your adult tumblr blog to direct traffic to your website. This way you don't have to worry about your blog getting banned from monetizing it

    Allright, i guess i will stick to my blog without monetizing. If i would create another blog, that would be like in the fashion niche, and i would place affiliate links to clothing e-shops, maybe even few AdSense banners, i would get banned too huh ?

    What is the reason on developing that blog if you would not monetize it?

    Blogs with adsense are safe on tumblr. With affiliate links, no. Post aff links do not mean you will be automatically caught and deleted, but it will increase the chances. Just do it wisely and you will be okay.

    don't put any affiliate code there, buy your own domain( get a .info if you can't afford .com)

    suggest to buy domain and hosting, make sure they allow adult niche. re-direct traffic and monetize as much. aff links etc since you're safe.

    Monetize your traffic by sending them to your blog, don't put ads on tumblr.

    I monetize my blogs with dating offers, however it's quite risky business and eventually gets you banned. If you decide to promote any aff offers, in my opinion it comes down to the race between you and tumblr - if you work very hard, create new blogs, gain followers on new blogs (you can do it easily if you already have one huge blog), you could come ahead. Basically, you have to create more and faster than they are banning.

    Having said that, there is another way you can make some money from it which is a lot safer. You can promote other tumblr blogs by reblogging them and charge for promotion. You can do it on fiverr, seoclerks, IM forums etc. In this case, I'll be your first customer because I'm racing pretty hard against tumblr banning team and always in need of new followers :) So, if you're interested, shoot me a PM.

    If you decide to take riskier way (which would probably be more profitable) and need some advice about it, also feel free to PM.

    Best regards

    It's already been mentioned but direct traffic from your tumblr to a monetized site that way trigger happy tumblr spies may preserve your blog a little longer.

    Adult tumblr are notorious for being deleted.

    Create separate site which is monetized > watermark images/reblogs with your site address and then direct traffic!
