    Hi. I use to tumblr as part of an seo strategy to promote adult content and blog. I read recently that Tumblr has removed all adult tags from their search (after Yahoo acquired Tumblr). They say that you can still find adult-related blogs if you are already following an adult-blog. But how does your blog get found otherwise? The whole point of social networking sites like tumblr is to get found on google and other search engines. So if your adult tumblr blog will be invisible what is the point? Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    No, it's not the whole point.

    The point is to people get sociable, communicate and share their thoughts, pictures and fragments of life, for fun mostly. Adult and porn is not in social networking group, so you can't exactly say nothing against their TOS and policy.

    I can still find some pretty raunchy tumblrs via google searching. That and I'm still drawing traffic. Guess I might keep my xtumblebot after all.
