Ok .. I've been kind of on Tumblr for abt a year and finally cashed out $11.80 from Linkbucks last week Although I am starting to get more positive now. Here is why: Sorry if I'm gonna be a little long-winded 1) Tumblr is the most liberal social network vs G+ / FB / etc 2) Just realised that I was using all the wrong Ads programmes like Clicksor! 3) I actually only got actively involved in Tumblr less than 1 month ago .. when FB suspended my acct for a week! 4) Discovered several things that I was doing wrong Current Tumblr blog: Category: NSFW Asian blog Followers: 3.4k (40-50 new followers/day) Daily Traffic (G Analytics): 600-1000 Daily Revenue: $0.7 - 0.8/day Monetizing: PlugRush (4th day today) Linkbucks Ero-Advertising AdultFriendFinder DepositFiles > not very actively pushing Banners So far only PlugRush/Linkbucks/Ero are contributing .. AdultFriend can get pretty good if I push it .. but currently .. concentrating on recruiting referral accounts under my PR n LB. Traffic Generation: FB (mostly auto-pilot + 4 posts/day) Followers exchange Content Tag spamming (hot tags) /planting (longtail tags) Twitter (Auto-pilot) Content generation: (~100posts/day) Reblogging and queuing Hootsuite bloadr Here's a few things which I discovered about tagging: Tags on reblogged posts DO NOT show up in Tumblr search! Only 5 tags from original posts turn up in Tumblr search Every other way (reblogged/mass editor) of tagging only appear at site search Here is how I hope my IM journey will progress: To secure $5/day on existing blog To replicate more of similar blogs To use the technics and tactics to really create profitable blogs on other areas which I am passionate about .. EG: cycling Moving forward, here are some things which I intend to do: Do more original posts with tag planting using bloadr/hootsuite Start trading traffic with similar sites Start Pinterest Look for better Ad networks Scraping Get more engaged with my followers Duplicate more blogs My questions are: 1) What are some other ways u all use to get more followers .. of course without spending loads of $$ n too much time. 2) What are some other Ad networks which allows Adult content sites. I've already got rejected by: Adxpansion ExoClick 3) I saw a few tumblr bots mentioned in the forum, but how much more efficient are they compared with hootsuite and bloadr? 4) I've downloaded Gscraper Free edition but could not really understand how to use it despite watching their video. Is the a thread or a webpage somewhere with more details like: Format of the import files for the proxies/keywords Where/how to find proxy servers? Can I just use any proxy servers I find in those lists thru google search? 5) Am I trying to do too much? Should I streamline certain aspects?
