    I'm wanting to monetise my tumblr blogs through affiliate marketing programs (mainly clothing), so I looked through the tumblr TOS and couldn't find anything against/ about sales and referral links. I was planning on doing a safer way and making a landing page on my tumblr site and putting the affiliate links on there. My blogs are pretty small at the moment, 6.5k, 2.9k and 2.8k but they have increased quite a bit over the past 2 weeks in terms of traffic and follower growth. Are you allowed to add affiliate links onto photo posts or will this result in instant bans?



    Thanks in advance /// Sorry if this has been posted somewhere else, I couldn't find anything new on it

    Oh and the target audiences are mainly US and Australia >> using Australian and global affiliate programs (I'm from Aus)

    You're better off making an affiliate site and drive your tumblr traffic to the affiliate site. If tumblr bans your blog what are you going to do after that? Your income is completely gone along with the blog. So you're better off making a bunch of blogs and drive traffic to your site

    I'm a fan of the affiliate or money sites too, like erickishere.

    But

    Try making a new account on a proxy, make this your ad account. Post all your affiliate links here originally and just reblog it from your bigger blogs. This way the wimpy blog is deleted and not your real blogs.
