    I currently have 2 tumblr accounts, one with 65,000 followers and the other with 10,000. I direct all my posts to a my website which is running plugrush. I have an affiliate offer on the site as well but I have not been making much off it. (been lazy about replacing it)

    What I'm looking for ideas on is how to get my income up a little bit. I'm currently betweet $6-$10/day depending on my cpm with plugrush. Would I be wise to expand outside of tumblr to obtain more traffic or just make more blogs on tumblr and direct them to the site?

    I didn't see much of an increase in income when I added the second blog so that is why I'm wondering if it is worth it to risk getting bans on tumblr for more blogs.

    Why not do both?
    Have a a bunch of blogs driving traffic to your main site, then use other social media and drive traffic from there.

    The reason I haven't made more tumblrs is because I would really hate to get the 65k one banned.

    Would twitter be the next easiest to grow or should I look into something like instagram?

    Look into a Tumblr bot, a few good ones can be found from around here as well. Then get some proper proxies and start running the additional Tumblr blogs with a bot. Might not want to point all of them directly at the money blog nor get them all spammed with affiliate links. Do a little research on that before getting into it, that's what BHW is good for, to find user experiences at least on the basics to get started.

    After that, sure why not go the Twitter way as well! Start with growing a Twitter account yourself maybe, now that your Tumblr blogs are mostly running on autopilot, and then see if it is benefiting you. A lot of information to be found about Twitter and using it as a marketing tool, plus good bots for that as well can be found.

    As to the easiest, Twitter or Instagram. Depending on the niche, Pinterest can be easy and very profitable if done right. A lot of women with credit cards in there.

    Just do the research, BHW is a goldmine for that. After you've researched it properly you should already know which way is the next way for you to go.

    And never forget the saying 'now scale it up' that you see everywhere here. I admit, some just shout it around because they thinks it's funny, and it is when done right, but it really is true when it comes to IM. One tumblr blog is not as effective as two, and Twitter + Tumblr means more than twice the audience size that is out there. Add Instagram and Pinterest and you're targeting most people using the internet and mainly social media, depending on your niche naturally.

    I should have mentioned it is nsfw content. I have been doing a lot of research on this stuff but can't seem to come up with a direction. I just need to pick something and start testing.

    Can anyone tell me if I can use trackers (ie. 1 tracker for tumblr and 1 tracker for twitter traffic) with Plugrush? I would like to be able to see how much each source is sending me.

    Make more tumblr accounts OP, leave your 65k/10k accounts manual/legit. And have more accounts by using bots such as xtumble/prtrafficbooster

    Have you tried Optimizing your profile there? Or social bookmarking techniques? I would love to help you with that if you need HELP. I know where you can get it done at a really reasonable price and it should drive traffic to your site. Also KeyWords and profile linking are two other techniques to help drive traffic. Have you used any of these?

    erikishere - would there be a possibility of my manual accounts being banned along with the accounts used to run the bots? Should I use proxies just to be safe?

    Christina - I'll send you a skype later on today to talk about some of these methods. To be short I have not done these methods.

    Another question sort of on the same topic, I was reading around the web and noticed a couple sites that labeled Plugrush as a site that skims pretty heavily. Is there truth to this?

    Here are some quick Plugrush stats, maybe someone can chime in with feedback.
    2500-3500 sold visitors daily
    .0025-.0030 CPV
    58% US traffic

    Using the following adzones
    Mobile redirect (main source of clicks by far)
    popunder
    plugrush widget

    The blog has been growing since I believe April or May. It has slowed down to around 100-150 new followers per day though.

    Yeah that is the only one that I have had blow up like that. For a while I was getting 500 new followers a day. I'm not sure what caused that. It has since slowed down and I'm only getting about 100-150 new followers a day now.

    My suggestion: Make some 'small' tumblr accounts, post some pics with clickthrough link pointing to your money site, Use your 'big' 65K account reblog these posts, tumblr might ban your small account, but it is safe for your big account.
