    Hello all

    It looks like Tumblr fixed their system for using a custom domain name... However, it appears that accounts using a custom domain name to "like" article around tumblr will still work.

    If you want to start a new tumblr account and add a custom domain, it is asking you to update your DNS A records and/or CNAME if a subdomain. I have found the only solution is to create blog posts on your tumblr home page linking to your page (which are ********), and then liking the high PR blogs etc. to pass the juice to your blog with ******** links.

    This is certainly not like before, but that's what I found today and wanted to share. If anyone has a workaround please let me know!

    I don't think Tumblr reblogging/liking has been a very effective way of getting strong backlinks since they made them no-follow, but good to know anyways I guess.

    I also noticed they just changed the 'reblogging' links. It was working on 5/21 but now has changed to a no-follow. Not sure exactly when. I'll check out what you are saying, not sure I completely understand it though, but thanks.
