    I have been building link wheels for some time now but I find that on about 80% the tumblr blog is always banned. Seems to me that they are one of the quickest free blog services to ban!

    Even from single post with links (non-affiliate) so I was thinking perhaps to add one original post without links to get it started. Anyone else having trouble with tumblr?

    Tumbr have been a pain in the backside since the Thirty Day Challenge about 3 years ago when one of rhe Web20 properties they recommended using was Tumblr. Tumblr went ape and banned a shed load of accounts.

    I can get them to stick if I build them manually and post some unique content add a decent RSS feed (not mine) and then let them age for a month. After that time I add my own stuff and links and I have no problem. It's time consuming but does work.

    Yep , more than half of mine were getting deleted as well , I stopped using them for linkwheels. Even when I outsource my link wheels I make sure they dont use tumblr , just dont use tumblr at all. Blogger , wordpress and all the other platforms are much less of a hassle.

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    I agree roberteb probably worth setting up manually to get past initial spam review. Interesting info about the reason why they became so strict!

    ilikebh, fair point, probably worth taking tumblr off my smaller link wheels in future!
