    Hey guys,

    I've recently set up a tumblr page which auto-posts adults gifs and pics. I've followed a TON of other pages and liked a lot of other posts but haven't got one single follower!

    I'm new to Tumblr so I may be missing out on something very obvious.

    Is this normal? Is it this difficult to get followers on Tumblr?

    Thanks!

    If very recent, then you might just be being impatient.

    Are you adding original content to your blog? or just the same images that are already on tumblr?

    Are you placing hashtags on the photos?

    First of all if your blog is new then you have to wait for a week or ten days. Secondly tumblr is removing Porn tags from its search. So you need to check adult tags which are not counted as adult i.e hot babes, hot chicks etc. Next reblog, follow and like some of established blogs on tumblr. In matter of days it will start getting followers.

    Best of Luck.

    Getting followers on Tumblr takes more time than Twitter or Instagram. You need to add good contents, something users would love. Reblogging can also gain you followers.

    Yeah I think I jumped the gun a little bit. I now have a few followers. I guess I was being impatient as I'm used to Instagram where you get people following you back instantly.

    Thanks for the replies guys!

    If you want to get plenty followers on Tumblr for free, be consistent... little by little become plenty.

    For anyone who uses bots, read the above, re-read it. Now go read it again. If you still don't understand what himanuzo's has written, keep reading it.

    Incase it still doesn't make sense, I will reword it
    Go slow and steady, keep under the radar

    Just because bots CAN do 1000 items in a minute with 100 threads, DOES NOT MEAN you should. Bots come into there own when you just leave them, let them run in the background, slowly but surely doing their thing.

    When I used Tumblr in the past I found that some fresh blogs that are made the same day as I mass followed were hit with the filter, so try making a new blog and wait about 48 hours before you follow anybody or do anything but verify your email address.

    The "hot women pictures" tag is very good.

    It took me about 10 days of following using imacros and then following a bunch of people who relog photos to get over 1,000 followers.

    When I started following people who reblogged content I grew my pages 10 times as fast.

    In fact, in a month I had over 3,000 followers on 15 accounts so that was a hell of a lot of followers in total. I used to get about 70-100 likes and 13 reblogs per image.

    I did about 20 accounts manually before they got hit, but I learned that Tumblr ends up banning every adult blog eventually whether you link to a site or not.

    Ever since Yahoo! Bought Tumblr they did everything in their power to eliminate porn from their site.

    I had 15 adult blogs in different niches and 5 evergreen accounts and found the traffic was very low quality.

    I still get traffic from the reblogs people did 4 months ago, but it's only under 10 hits a day now, it used to be more when the reblogs were still fresh.

    Good luck, and best of all enjoy your ride with this social media platform.

    I hope my insight helped you in any way.

    This is my very first post on BHW. I have spent more than a month just reading the forums and I am grateful to all the contributors.

    My tumblr credentials
    I have a single tumblr account and a niche blog with 20,600 followers as of the day of this post. All my followers are organic and I in return only follow 125 blogs. I do not follow people because they follow me. I follow them only because they post content that I am interested in - period. My blog is 2years old and I am an authority in my niche. My blog is now growing at about 1000 new followers per month with average notes count for a month old post in the rage of 300 - thousands. You can PM me if you want the link to said blog.

    Now that I have stated my tumblr credentials, lets return to your post:

    What exactly is the rush? what is the point in creating 10 tumblr accounts just so they can be banned after a month? Does the reward really equal the effort? Do not be penny wise and pound foolish. If you intend to monetize your tumblr traffic then build a following that basically puts a megaphone in your hand.

    Take your time. Hand pick your posts, edit them if you need to and then post them. Choose the time you post. Post in the evenings when everyone has had dinner and they are horny :). Monitor the response to the post and most similar images or change the type of images you are posting? By being consistent in terms of quality and niche, you will turn to attract people who share a common interest with you and these people stick around. These are your only true followers. I think too many people are trying to make money with un-targeted traffic and I am not surprised its not working.

    Do not flood your followers' dashboards with images. If you do, they will unsubscribe. Post 3 to 5 images per day and be patient. Impatience is a glaring sign of weakness. Resilience and tenacity will enable you to succeed in any niche no matter how competitive it is. Because too many people want fast cash and eventually give up when its not going their way.

    Anyway I gotta stop rambling but I hope you get my point.
