    I've searched for this through the forum and haven't found an answer yet.

    If I reblog something from a high PR tumblr blog, but make it private, will the link still have juice? (i have a niche tumblr blog, trying to keep the posts targeted)

    Yes, they will pass link juice but you need to do a lot of reblogs and make sure you add some unique content when you reblog. Tumblr is actually a beast in itself.

    Just a sentence or two is what I found is fine with Google, I'm thinking Google treats tumblr differently cause it is not a traditional blogging platform.

    Why not do a few and see if they show in opensiteexplorer and google webmaster tools... We blog on out tumblr network (contact us below for cheap post on PR 4-5 tumblrs) and get a lot of juice out of it... but you have to keep the articles and good content flowing.

    Yes it will pass some amount of link juice. Try to avoid some crappy articles on your Tumblr blog.

    Yes it will. But tumblr reblog is considered as social links. There are different classes of links such as comment, content, and others, each have different weight in Google's 2014 algorithm. In my experience, social link juice weight less than link from content, I guess that make sense since you would need a considerable amount of social signal to be deemed popular in Google's eye.

    I don't think this works anymore. Tumblr used to give ******** backlinks every time you liked and reblogged something, but not anymore. At least the last time I checked all of those links were nofollow.

    What I'd recommend to do is publish really awesome content that others would re-blog and add a link to your domain below the pictures you post.

    You may need to check this again, if you attach hyperlink to your image that link to your site, a reblog still carries the link over without nofollow attribute.
