    Hey guys,

    Here's the situation. I have 2 Tumblr accounts and a self-hosted Wordpress Blog. Tumblr account A is NSFW and has 10k followers while Tumblr B is Trading related which has like 10 followers and is safe for work. My blog is trading related as well.

    I share all my posts from the Wordpress blog onto Tumblr account B and the posts link to my WP blog. If I were to then use Tumblr account A and reblog some of the posts from Tumblr acc B, would that negatively affect my Wordpress site? Like would that count as a spam backlink since it's from an unrelated blog?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but im fairly new to all this. My logic would be we have no control over who reblogs our posts so there's a chance it might not negatively affect my site but instead positively affect it?

    Would love to hear what you guys think.

    I presume Tumblr is nofollow now, but they still rank exceptionally well inside Image Search Engines of all popular outlets.

    Keep posting with descriptions inside the caption so long tail keywords are ranked... Funnel traffic between it and make it act as a gateway so you can safely harness loads of hits if your blogs stick.

    Does that mean the backlinks from the NSFW blog won't negatively impact my SFW Wordpress Blog?

    I'm pretty sure Tumblr is still do follow, unless that changed very recently.

    I read a case study where a guy did this pretty effectively. In fact he says it's all he does for SEO, is set up reblog systems and build those networks. I think it is worth a shot, because you own the network so you can go ahead and change it if needed. But adding content from other sources, such as ArticleBuilder.net or something, is very good for business as well.
