    This is my first time using Tumblr with proxies...

    - I have 14 accounts. (5 were inactive for some months ago (one of them banned, no reason) + 10 that I have bought today)
    - I'm using 10 shared proxies. (the first 6 are unique, the last 4 proxies are asigned to the last 8 accounts, so they use 2 accounts per proxy)
    - I'll go for NSFW (sorted)
    - I'll post every 10 min. And I'm shutting down my pc while I sleep. So, 6 posts per hour * 24 = 144 max posts / day (average 116/day)
    - I'm using my own bot. Written in Python. It can post. follow. unfollow. like. apply themes / change account settings, create/grab api settings. It works on FULL autopilot. 100% So at this moment I just have to Wait and see what happens.

    - I have setup my accounts with custom title, set tumblr url, common settings, custom theme (I made it)...
    - I'll try to monetize it with Crakrevenue offers. Doing that, I can't bet my accounts will be alive for more than a month, being lucky.
    - I've invested $5,50 So this should be my minimum ROI.

    So now, I have 1 month to see If I can accept a rebill for my proxies plan (or an upgrade :D), or If I'll have to cancel it. Anyway, If I have bans during this month, I'll buy more, setup them and I'll be posting again

    I'm just wondering myself, how much time my accounts will remain alive xD How much traffic will they drive ? and how much money...

    Wish me luck !

    Thank you ! First lets see If I'm not getting banned in the next three days xD

    I've hit the shortener API limit loool xdd I've created a new account on tr.im and modified my code to only shorten urls once.
    I'm not using goo.gl, or bit.ly because when I go to shorten the urls the response is that they can't or won't shorthen CR urls...
    I'm also disabling the follower bot till I get some followers... In the next few day I hope that the accounts gain followers and I will enable it again.

    First day: 1 Lead / $0

    Update 17/09:
    17_09.jpg

    I'm only receiving uniques from the first account. (I have specific trackers to accounts) The others, an average of 200 posts each / still 0 followers.
    Just verified that all my accounts are alive.
    And hoping that my accounts start getting followers soon...

    You should setup some simple redirects on a few sites of your own, and simply use those in your desired url shorteners. I have CR links shortened this way via both bit.ly, and goo.gl without problems for many months.

    Ex. setup mysite.com/1.php to redirect to a CR rotator then use mysite.com/1.php as the url to shorten with your chosen url shortener service or using your mass link generation bot. There is of course no limit to the ways you can manipulate this strategy as long as mysite.com does not get blocked by goo.gl and/or bit.ly. Once/if that happens just use a different url like mysite2.com/1.php, etc... Anyway, hope the method is clear.

    This seems like an excellent journey OP. You should easily recover your low investment amount of 5.50 I would expect. Of course you will need to figure out a lot of things along the way.

    Thank you @Davers ! It's clear. That's a good advice that I should not forget. I know how to do redirects from another servers with php,js,meta redirects, or even with modrewrite.
    But there's a small problem haha. I don't have a domain, and I don't have a reliable server. I don't want to be skimming myself with freehostings/freedomains that produces 404 < 500 errors at any time.
    If I get my ROI back + something more, for sure I'll be getting an small vps, paid yearly, and a cheap domain. (Probably from lowendtalk lowendbox sites)
    With an VPS and domain/s. Well there are a lot of topics to cover, DNS, to host multiple domains within the same host, create my own tubes, put my scripts there to run with cron... and so. But at this moment it's tumblr time.

    I'm using 5 to 30 tags per post. Taken from a big porn tube. I'm worried about this because not all the tags are as popular/trendy as the others... It's not the same to put, lesbian, milf, teens, than having cuckold, flashing, or bigcock. I'm wondering if could be better to be more specific to only popular tags. Or keeping spreading my content over more tags, that would be less spammy to every search feed.

    As said before, let's hope they get followers soon and not getting early bans. XD

    Update 18/09: First income ! :)
    18_09.jpg 18_09_1.jpg

    ROI: $5.50 - $2.86 = $2.64 left to start with real earnings.
    Accounts are starting to get followers now =)

    Good luck with your journey! You will earn big money since NSFW is way easier to monetize on Tumblr!

    Thank you ! I don't expect at first to earn big money haha... I just wish it. My only expectation is an early ban. I hope to be wrong on that, but my accounts doesn't survive more than a month from my experience xD

    I know, that my copywriting, the way I make my Call to Action could not be the best the most accurate. That's because for me, the english is a foreign language. Is not natural for me, to think in english. And that's a problem when you want to convince someone to click your links and do some actions ! I usually use short CTA phrases. To make it easier to adjust them to responsive/mobile/smaller layouts. I use something like "ยก Live Cam Shows ! Free Sign Up Now" or "Horny Girls wanna talk, Register NOW!" And so on...

    Today I got a small boost on traffic, It's starting to work. It's a matter of time/bans to earn more. hehe

    Just Updated the 19/09 report (above, on my last post)

    IF, and only IF I recover my invested money, my ROI:

    • Depending on how much traffic I get I could decide to switch from PPL to PPS offers.
    • I could start pushing content only to an small subset of tags (the most popular) and spam them. The intention is to monopolize #tags and take all the traffic :D At this moment I can do ~2016 posts a day

    Great. I just decided I'll start a NSFW tumblr and one in another niche, but I'll use no bots. Just set 100 photos on queue and follow people a few times a day. The main reason is that I have $40 on CrakRevenue and need another $60 to withdraw.

    If I don't use bots they won't ban me, right? This is my first time on Tumblr.

    Good luck for you.

    goodluck on journey! nice to see you almost made ROI already, and im pretty sure you will hit it very soon,
    Make sure to follow / scrape active people from active accounts, maybe that is why you are not getting followers back, just a lil advice

    @Vamola2 They will ban you if you SPAM or put affiliate marketing links. And maybe if you don't... I just accepted that they will ban me at anytime haha I just try to play hard, like a champ !

    @Thenub Hopefully tomorrow I'll reach my ROI. About following. ATM I'm just following back the ones that previously followed me. No scraping involved. No mainteinance needed (to check alive accounts). But yes, some of my followers then can have a lower quality. But I don't care. I have analyzed for few months what are the possibilities. And I had an exponential growth of followers. Last time I got 8k within a month. But probably I'll change my strategies or at least modify it when I revisit my bot, then i'll try to use multithreading/multiprocessing, build lists, improve liker, follower and account checkers.

    Just see what wrote to me one of my followers today hahaha:
    xD.jpg

    Are you using tumblr with multiple accounts too ? If so... let us know something moarr about your journey ? :)

    Thank you both !

    A total of 3563 Followers

    My account 14 was banned... There was two accounts for that shared proxy. I'll buy 10 more accounts. And will make that all my proxies share two accounts. So I'll end with 23 accounts If I don't get more bans.


    The day finished with earnings :)

    $ 21.04 earned - $ 5.50 invested = $ 15.54 PROFIT

    ~200 visits came from an spanish online newspaper. I tried pushing $55 PPS offers in their comments. And looks like a good source of traffic. But maybe spaniards aren't the ones who will pay for porn (or anything that's digital) Hehe I'll try soon or later to write an script to multiple news sites that accept comments. But not at this moment.

    Now I have 23 accounts. 20 active. I will activate the last three tomorrow.
    I'm not using proxy for the first account (my residential IP is used). I'm using 2 accounts per proxy for the next 16 accounts (8 proxies). And 3 accounts per proxy for the last 6 accounts (2 proxies).

    Let's hope they to remain the whole week alive :)

    EDIT: I said yesterday that I got two bans. But was my fault interpreting my latest script to check accounts... two connection error made me think that my accounts were banned.

    So, 20 accounts alive : )

    21/09 Update:
    21_09.jpg

    2 Leads = $0

    Yay!
