    Alright, I basically played around with tumblr for a few days and got about 100+ followers a day because of quality.

    To start, figure out how to set up a tumblr blog, im not going to go through that because there are some great guides on here that explain it. I would recommend having a clean theme, and use the infinity scroll option so people dont have to click through pages. Also, head over to SCM music player and make a good playlist if your not in the porn industry, its a nice addition. to find good music you can check out sites like vibeaddict, 8tracks etc. (im not affiliated with them). make sure you have a niche in mind and stick to it.

    Once your set up, its all about the pictures. I use scrapebox but there are other image scraping tools that you can use. here is where I do things differently. I find some of the best pictures by finding blogs and tumblrs and sites that have great photos that relate to my niche. I am in the hipster niche so I would put into google something like this
    Code:
    imgix.8tracks.com/i/ "hipster"
    this will bring up relevant pictures and then I can just use the scrapebox addon and download them all.

    Some other great resources can be
    xanga.com
    8tracks photos- thats the imgix.8tracks.com(where the photos are located)
    forums
    anything that has pictures posted to it regularly

    From there, once you have the photos you can streamline the process by using tumbloadr to put all your photos into your que(this site is specifically helpful if you only want to upload it to one of your subblogs. it allows you to put tags in and these are very important.

    from what I learnt, gif, smoke, tattoo, hipster, teen, wild, nature, quote, skull are all very popular right now. try and make the tags relevant to the picture. this is why it helps to upload similar pictures at the same time. its worth it to take a bit of time and separate the picture out before hand.

    in the que, you have an option on how often to post, I do 48 posts ever 24 hours which means a post every half hour but you can do less.

    I dont follow people back unless they ask. Once you get a good following you can use mylikes, adsense, georedirects/iframs(not sure if this is allowed but I tried it) using this, you can post up quality stuff with minimal work everyday and in a few months have a huge following. You can really bank on this if you put in the time in the beginning and watch it grow.

    try it out, I do it simply because I like the photos I post and its like a break for me, rather than work. let me know what you think

    yeah mylikes has adult offers also, but they shave like a mother Fer because of all the scamming that goes on with people sending traffic. Its still a good resource. and I have only dabbled in the hipster niche, hipster girls, hipster cloths, nature etc. tumblr has a very large hipster fanbase.

    an example of a good tumblr would be this: fabioabecassis.tumblr.com , the pictures are all good, the quality is good, the flow is good,

    I also forgot to mention, when you post, you want to have pictures that are similar be placed beside eachother. thats why I would post lets say 20 smoking pictures then the last 5 would be ones with tattos then do all tattoo pcitures etc. creates a good flow.

    If you have the money for scrapebox its well worth it but if you cant afford it, dont buy it! haha theres tons of addons that one is just called image scraper. its pretty simple, it takes your keyword that you use and scrapes the images that showup in google.

    the theme I have is very clean and there is nothing on it except my title and pictures so I put the google ad with just the 5 words across the top, almost looks like a menu but is clear enough, I dont think it breaches their TOS. I also just use sponsored posts from mylikes.
