    I have a new NSFW/Adult niche Tumblr blog with about 10 followers and a few hits a day (I said it was new, remember? :)); I really wonder if the people following me are just other marketers doing the same thing which could be useful to get my blog out there, but at the same time, it seems like I am going to have an awful lot of traffic that isn't going to convert.
    I tried posting some pics on sex.com along with my URL, but I only get a few hits here and there from it. Got any other 'adult bookmarking' sites like that you mind sharing?
    Side note, how long do you think I can get away with the Peerfly rotating ad banner before Tumblr bans me?

    EDIT: Searched and found a post mentioning stumbleupon having an adult section, but it was an older post (1 year or so). Anybody know if that is still relevant?

    The chances that some of these people that are following you are pretty good but at the same time there are plenty of people who head to tumblr for some quick and easy porn. I personally just started this same thing about a month ago. I have nearly 7k followers as of today and my inbox is constantly popping up with messages and questions from people. So I know for a fact I have a lot of people that aren't just IM's.

    As far as ads on your tumblr, that is most likely a way to get banned. I'm not going to say 100% it will happen but the chances are really great that it will. Your best bet would be to get your own hosting and domain and redirect your traffic to your site from your tumblr. Some people have been having luck with mylikes on their blog but from what I've been reading they have to make sure those posts are kind of camouflaged in with their regular posts.

    you should use tumblr as a traffic generation for a self hosted site, dont tumblr as a money site
