    Major change by Tumblr. Previously, I've managed to get a few hundred daily followers by simply adding links when reblogging. Now they've decided to prohibit this kind of behavior.

    Any thoughts about this? I'm afraid that this change will result in a major drop in new followers.

    what if its a genuine link though? One of careful consideration and selected and placed with exactly what you know is a relevant link that is along side the re blogged article as merely another suitable piece of information.

    They will be ok with that. But placing them there to steal attention is probably not what you were originally doing anyway.

    When you post an image on tumblr using your image URL from your blog you still get a link back to your site.

    Yeah, but as I mentioned in the opening post - I've automatically reblogged posts and inserted my URL resulting in hundreds of new followers every day. Now, I'm guessing I'll only get a fraction of that since there's no mention of me in the chain. Sure, I'll get a link when adding new posts but it's a lost opportunity.

    Yes, you do lose opportunities.

    What I was talking about just helps the image rank in google/bing images.
