    Hey,

    I am aware that you can make a re-direct when creating a Page, but as far as I can tell that doesn't really help if you want to forward one Tumblr subdomain to another. It would be great if someone could tell me how that is done?

    Alternatively, how do I best use Tumblr domains with Pagerank?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    50 views, no answers.... I must assume that it is not possible then. So, what should I do? Simply write a passage saying that this blog is now at the new address?... Anyone ?

    Pretty sure you can't 301 the root domain, if anyone knows of a way that would be awesome.

    I've done it using PHP coding. The tumblr acct got banned within a few hours.

    And that explains why I've never seen a root tumblr page with a redirect before.

    Thank you lads. :) So... If that is the case what if you had a few high PR Tumblr domains available to you, how would go about getting the most out of them ? (I intend to give some of them away by the way.)

    You can do this

    Modify the theme, using Modify HTML

    Use a Javascript redirect using window.location="newlocation.com";

    I do it currently for some BH null referring.

    Wouldn't Tumblr just ban for that? Plus JS redirects don't pass link juice do they? Otherwise how does cloaking work...

    :Kimo: I might be able to trade you. :) I can't PM, as I have yet to make 15 posts. :pulsey: Thanks for the message, but can't PM you back. I might just have a few PR1's or PR2's that I can give away for free. In that context someone needs to tell me how I make one of them smart boards with URL's which does not break BHW's rules?

    Anyway, I am still kind of looking for an answer in terms of the best use of them. Kimo, since you are interested perhaps you can enlighten me/us? :)

    js redirect works. and you say your purpose is to redirect link juice? i thought tumblr has changed all links to no follow except for your custom pages?

    Is this method fine to do? Is there any chance for suspension?

    The only links Tumblr made nofollow were when you reblog or 'heart' a post on another page (like blog comments). All links you put on the blog or pages that you 301 redirect still pass 100% link juice.

    I am sorry for being a bit blond, but it is unclear to me from the above whether JS actually does pass link juice. Also, could there potentially be a problem with Tumblr. ie. they don't condone it?

    Is it possible to 301 redirect tumblr to my own domain? IE my tumblr domain is hxxp:marketingmix.tumblrdotc0m and I want to 301 it to my domain hxxp:bigmoneymarketingdotc0m so that my old readership carries over to my new domain.
    (can't post links yet)

    Is this possible?

    As far as I know sir, it is not possible to redirect it, only use your domain name instead of your free tumblr subdomain name.
