    Notes dont matter if the users are not clicking to go to your url.

    How many UV did you get?

    To answer many of the posts above:

    Sorry my OP was vague, I was just dissapointed and wanted to vent my frustrations. I run adsense and I get 500 UVs a day. I run a variety of blogs ranging from fitness to funny pictures. I'm a web developer so I made all my themes custom, but I feel like I may be missing something.

    Don't just use ads man, add some affiliate products, product reviews, sponsored posts (like dude above is willing to pay for repost) etc. Good job on that much traffic though

    Know the feeling. Try affiliate and product reviews just like socialcreativeonline say. From my experience I agree.

    You'll make much more if you built sites up relating to your blogs and use your blogs to direct traffic to it

    Why is that though? What's the benefit between hosting the ads on the blog itself, and driving them to an external site?

    Tumblr doesn't allow for certain types of advertising and affiliate marketing so you would need to move the traffic elsewhere to monetize it even further. It sounds like you would be able to pay for the hosting easily.

    Can you share your tumblr blog link of 50,000 followers with us to check problem or not?

    What's your niche?
    Where do you drive your tumblr traffic to?

    And do you do paid reblog?

    Damn that's some good traffic for tumblr. Even though they are just ads, I am surprised you only made $20 a month. If you know of some facebook promo groups, I think people in those groups click on each other's links to gain revenue. Although this is something you actually have to work on and not just sit back and watch it happen

    Yeah, except the network would probably find out. I think the only offers that really work straight from tumblr are camming and niche sex fetish offers. Otherwise, like the others have said, just use it to redirect traffic to a website where you will have more ability to direct them into doing something.
