    Sup guys, I have a simple question, I've started a blog on tumblr pointing to my site, so far I've have seen backlinks showing up for most of the sites I've submmited, but I don't see any results from Tumblr.

    This is actually tricky and not many folks know.

    There is/was an implement no follow rule based on how you linked the item. If you just copied and pasted the hyperlink into the blog post you would get hit with a nofollow tag. However if you use their hyperlink button the tag would not be added.

    So always click the hyperlink button and Do not paste your link in.

    Tumblr do take time to get indexed. You can force index them by using google index or buy some juicy links to it.

    Best wishes

    As long as they are indexed, they are serving their purpose. Therefore, it doesn't matter whether they appear in third party link research tools or not.

    Google says that it knows about all the backlinks, even if it doesn't bother to show you but a sampling of the links there. It just takes time for these backlinks to show up, but Google knows they are there.
