    Get expired tumblrs with high authority/PR.

    If you just want to link back to your site, then there is no need to have custom domain.

    I prefer not to use a custom domain because your followrate will drop drastically.
    A window pops up when you hover above someone's username. They can then view your blog within Tumblr's framework, so they don't have to visit your blog URL to see what is on there. This doesn't happen if you have a custom domain name and most people won't bother to check out your blog.

    You want traffic, seo or what is the intent of using tumblr.

    You don't need to use custom domain.

    I am trying to get traffic and I haven't figured out how to harness tumblr yet. I use FL and this platform seems to be the hardest to direct.
