    I created this thread to keep track on my progress.

    I currently own 7 blogs with a total 530k followers. It makes around $1000 - $2500 on autopilot.

    My goal is to make $5000 a month.

    For this new journey that I will embark on, I will use Tumbling Jazz by Rootjazz. This is the first time I will use a bot for Tumblr.

    I am currently an affiliate for a company that posts on Tumblr. My first day's task is to scrape 1,000,000 unique URLs in order to re-target the people who liked/reblogged their posts.

    This is my setup:
    500 accounts
    100 proxies


    I have not bought any accounts yet, I will first see if I can get at least 1 million user names and divide the total amount with 2500.

    Note I won't share any information on niche, company, more complex strategies etc in this thread (on the internet for everyone to find and implement). This is just for tracking my own progress. If you want to get more information, you could pm me.

    No interest to bash you, but why you opened this thread if you won't share information.
    It seems fishy. Are you trying to sell something?

    Majority of the journey threads that go posted don't reveal a lot of information, why should they?
    I don't go around telling people my niches, strategies etc.. why would I want more competition?

    No doubt he will answer general questions but anything that's to specific it's pretty common practice for most to avoid/ignore them.
    Nothing fishy about it at all.

    Good luck with your journey, might want to either make a new thread in the journey section OR ask a MOD if they can move it for you.

    Good luck with your journey, you could have started this thread on journey section.
    You can ping any of the mods and they'll switch to appropriate section.

    But it also fits in here as a specific Tumblr journey. As this board doesn't get much traffic, I personally think having the tumblr journeys here is good, as the journey board can push threads off page one quite quickly.

    Am sure the mods will do what mods will do, but my vote is to keep them here

    I often see people trying to scrape big numbers, but I never understand why. Can you use that many ? Why not scrape what you need to use on a daily basis? When big numbers are scraped, for sure many are old accounts, perhaps not active.

    Scraping little and often of recent posts / notes off recent(ish) posts will ensure all your results are current and active.

    Few reasons, daily repeat task consume more time,sometimes not enough notes on posts, duplicated users, sometimes in top are me own post so scraping me bots/followers that already have is not ideal, mannnny post are made by bots also in some tags i saw that no new post were added to top so there were same post like few weeks.


    To OP good luck with your journey $5k/month with tumblr is possible speaking from experiences, im curious how will work 100 proxies and 500 accs in long term.

    The first reason is because people who have liked/reblogged those posts are active Tumblr addicts. I have been part of the Tumblr community for more than 4 years, so I just kinda know that there are not many in-actives in the users that I am scraping even when some posts are older than 6 months.

    My most important reason is to check for doubles. Most people filter out duplicates but I emphasize on them. I know that they have liked similar posts so the chance is bigger they will follow back. Excel -> filter -> create two lists. Follow doubles with 5 blogs, singles with just one.

    OP, thanks for the tip about the duplicates, it seems like a smart thing to filter for to gauge the level of interests.

    I'm impressed OP. How did you start out initially if you don't mind me asking?

    Very well then. Welcome to BHW, and we look forward to your upcoming guides on how to be ultra-successful at Tumblr. If you missed the sarcastic tone, be sure to read it again.

    Make sense if you are working with a lot of accounts I suppose. Especially filtering out posts made by your blogs. And on emphasising the doubles in the notes, never thought of that <takes notes>
