    I left tumblr alone for a while but so many people have been talking about the site lately that I decided to revisit it.

    I have an amazon affiliate account I haven't done with.

    So I did come keyword research on a random niche
    Signed up for a tumblr account
    Pulled an amazon rss feed ie - http://www.amazon.com/rss/tag/your niche here/new?length=100&tag=youramazonid
    Signed up for an ifttt account
    created a recipe - rss to tumblr
    plugged in my keywords into the tag section of my post
    I hopped back to tumblr - placed amazon banners,disclaimer,etc
    Fixed up my theme
    folllowed and like about 40 similar or as close as possible blogs
    created a twitter account
    created a new recipe - tumblr to twitter
    made the twitter profile look real-istic
    went over to twiends and created a profile
    followed people that are involved with or as close to my niche as possible

    sat back, closed all the sites and going to watch what happens.

    I'm sure there are other people doing this or similar. I like to hear opinions and suggestions. I'm sure everyone has their own two cents to say.

    I've heard people have a lot of success with this. I'm going to do it in order to build an email list, though. Get a Tumblr bot. I have read where guys get like 1000-2000 hits a day from using these.

    Tumblr is going to ban you because of affiliate links. Read their TOS.

    All of that is true about Tumblr banning lots of blogs.A good bit of us here have been through Tumblr's mass banning frenzies but at the same time the banning seem random. I still see blogs with plugrush, amazon banners and a slew of others programs that have been around for a while.

    You sure even with Amazon banners, we're not allowed to post them? I can understand plug rush, but Amazon?

    Expect some Mass bannings, since Tumblr is super strict nowadays on everything.
