    I had some shady Tumblr blogs under one email and then 1000% legit above the board blogs on two others.
    I go to my shady account and it's toast. Gone. Terminated. Oh Well, that's what I expect.

    Then I go to my legit Tumblr blogs and they are gone as well. WTF! I could fuckin kill somebody right now I'm so pissed.
    Definitley my fault for putting so much work into shit that I don't own. I should have learned my lesson from y 20K pinterest board that got killed.

    I still sent those pricks and email to ask why the legit account got terminated, not expecting to get anything back.

    Now that i'm starting from scratch do I need to get separate IP addresses for each account?

    Thanks
    -Capp

    Id say it is the best way to avoid sweeping bans like you have suffered.

    1 account per IP is ok, some people might call it overkill but it means they should not get grouped together if one gets banned.

    I tend to link a full set of accounts to 1 ip, like a FB/Twitter/YT/Tumblr etc on one ip

    You're making the same mistake all over again. You just said it's your own fault for putting work into something you don't own, something that can b deleted in the click of a button and your going back to it?

    Why not install WordPress multisite and create blogs on that. That way you own the blogs.



    You should create wordpress blogs and use the NextScripts social auto posting plugin
    wordpress.org/plugins/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g/


    Then just have your wordpress blogs auto post to tumblr and drive the tumblr traffic towards your wordpress blogs. That way if they delete your tumblr blogs the wordpress blogs are still there.

    Hi Leaver,

    I have legit blogs (authority sites) that I run from my two VPS accounts and 1 dedi...I leverage tumblr, pinterest, facebook and Google+ for all of my traffic since I got hit with the first Panda. I decided I would take the time and built up nothing but social media traffic and tumblr was one of my main sources. Any traffic from SEO is a bonus - which now that I'm not doing any SEO I'm getting more traffic. Go Figure.

    I didn't lose all my content, I just lost all my followers, authority and posts.


    mackay22- I will take your advice. I think 1 account per IP Address or one set. That's a good idea. A little more upfront hassle but worth it.

    Try to email them to get your blog back. A big tumblr user bigmamasmamas always get his back when he emails them. Doesn't hurt to try lol

    Using a proxy on tumblr will get you banned. I have over 15 accounts currently on my real IP for a few years and not 1 of them has ever been banned.

    HOLY CRAP!!! I take back all my insults to the tumblr guys! WHOO-HOO.

    Here is what they wrote me back:

    Hello,

    Sorry about that!
    We've restored your content.
    Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. We're sorry that it occurred, and we'll do our best to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

    Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. Thanks for using Tumblr!
    Best,

    In case anyone was wondering what I wrote. Here is the email that I sent them before they restored my account. I also just checked
    and I'm all back!

    Hi,

    I'm the webmaster for several websites that I had tumblr pages for and my account was terminated.

    It was under the email address: xxxxx.xxxxx

    All the posts were from and had link backs to the following sites:

    www.xxxxx.com

    www.xxxxx.com

    www.xxxxx.com

    www.xxxxx.com

    Please let me know what I did incorrectly before I invest time and resources on more tumblr pages just to have them instantly terminated.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Regards,

    xxxxxx

    Good for you OP,

    I've been telling ya'll this for the longest.
    You're doing the right thing man , just know this, they may delete the blogs again.

    What they are doing is CHECKING to see if you're 'legit' or a bot. Bot's don't respond to bans (unless you tell em to...)

    They do the massive Ban Hammer Witch Hunts from time to time. (and it ain't got nothing to do with this being a Yahoo thing...)

    As I always say THEY ARE FULL OF $HIT when it comes to their so-called 'TOS'
    As in one breath they say certain things are not allowed for certain blogs that they let happen for years with others. NSFW of SFW.


    And just to be clear IT DON'T matter if you put blogs on your own legit IP's or not, when they nuke your $hit it's gone... until you can convince them otherwise. Keeping all of your blogs on one IP only ensures one thing for sure. ***POOF***!!! Much faster.

    How do I know? CAUSE i've had both accounts & blogs nuked from both proxies AND REAL IP's. Breaking their so-called 'TOS' and not. Some have lasted over a year most have not. Anybody dreaming that you can't get nuked will soon wake up to Hiroshima one day.

    So you ppl getting on here talking this bull$hit like you know all the rules need to quit...
    What rules?? LOL!
    They Don't Even Know Their Own Damm Rules...

    I had a rather funny conversation with our "Tumblr friend" Mathieu yesterday.

    I've got three of my blogs banned as I mentioned in other post. I've managed to reactivate two of them getting the usual response:

    Hello,

    Sorry about that!
    We've restored your content.
    Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. We're sorry that it occurred, and we'll do our best to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

    Best,

    Mathieu

    Splendid! But I was still curious where I went wrong so I've replied to this email asking something like "OK guys sry for this hassle but can you please tell me what mistakes I made and what can I do to not get terminated again in the future?" And their response?

    Brace yourselves amd look:

    Hello,

    I'm sorry I made a mistake when restoring your account.
    We've terminated your Tumblr account at http://xxxxx.tumblr.com for spam or affiliate marketing. Per the policies you agreed to when creating your account, Tumblr prohibits such activity.

    Don't put deceptive links or dubious code in your posts. That includes using Javascript to inject unwanted ads in blogs, or embedding links to interstitial or pop-up ad services. Don't use deceptive means to generate revenue or traffic, or create blogs with the primary purpose of affiliate marketing.

    Unfortunately we can't restore accounts that have been terminated for violating our Terms of Service or Community Guidelines.
    Best regards,



    So they first terminate my account, then restore it and terminate it once again when I ask why!!! Effin amateurs!
    I didn't use any shady techniques just put click-through links to my images. I also just used 1 proxy per account and manually created my blogs with custom theme, name etc. Everything 100% "legit".

    What's worse is that this morning I've found that another 20 of my blogs were terminated :\ Oy vey...

    Awww Man!!! I would be so pissed.

    I guess that answers my question. I was thinking about going to the coffee shop under a different IP address and sending an email from my other account asking if it could be un-banned as well. That's the account I was really banking hard from.

    After reading this I'm scared to death - they might get the one they just restored somehow. That's a bunch of horse shit. These social networks are very scarey. I'm currently paying for facebook traffic - to a huge fan page. I'm burning like $10 bucks per day - not a lot but for the last 4 months it's starting to add up. If facebook banned that page I would be super-pissed but there is nothing really stopping them. Same with pinterest....and GooglePlus.

    At least tumblr was free followers........for now.

    "DUBIOUS CODE" I love it. Fuck-tards.

    Yeah I was like "You idiot! You should have kept your mouth shut..."

    Well, don't post anything that is against FB community guideline and you should be fine.

    FB can be a great traffic source but it needs work. What I really likedabout Tumblr was way how easy you can automate everything.

    @ Pvlman & bigg_capp


    Yeah... that's why i was telling you bigg capp they might delete it again.

    But here's the bottomline. You can't let it get to you too much. TRUST ME I felt like literally beating da $hit outta somebody @ T$mblr for my lost at that time, as I was just reaching my goal of $50 a day and then later $100 a day. when it happened to me the first 2x.


    Here's a little insight about my journey into IM:
    I started with CL and CPA 5 years ago. At first it was rolling insanely for me. Then eventually as more and more ppl started doing it and carbon cloning methods, the more ridiculously difficult it got,
    CL became the biggest pain in the a$$ with ghosted ads and banned accounts becoming a way of life.

    I saw the same exact thing happen with YT and adult CPA 4 years ago as well.

    Facebook the same.

    T$mblr the same

    Point is...it is the nature of 'the game'.

    The trade off quite often for traffic from any of these social and/or organic sources where there is semi-to aggressive tactics being used (LOL... now it's not even a matter of how aggressive tactics are or not it seems...) is dealing with the contradictions and bull$hit that comes from:
    a) contradictive TOS
    b) haters ratting out blogs (this $hit goes back to haters flagging with bots against competitors..)
    c) sudden highs and horrible lows...:(


    Do we give up? Many do, I'm glad as phuck I didn't listen to ppl who couldn't weather the storms. ($$$$)

    However, I did in fact move on from former methods and niches such as CL, but that was because I had discovered better things with less the headache and costs to make the kind of money I was interested in making and to successfully play the game.

    The fact of the matter is technology has improved in ways over the past 5 years (each day...) that help many of these social networks to crack down on certain users more effectively. (Bastards, as many of the users they ban are the salt of their sites, now that they've gotten more popular they want to drop em.)

    Like wise, we will too deploy new ways... :)


    Whether you use T$mblr or FB or Twitter or whatever, there's ALWAYS some $hit. As matter of fact in Life in general there's ALWAYS something to face at points and times. So what???

    Live and Learn and Keep Grinding! $$$:cool:$$$

    All The Best Guys

    Wise word my friend.

    And yeah - you're right with the bottom line which in shorter version could be something like "keep on keeping on".

    Tumblr isn't my only source of income, in fact I just started fiddling with it to diversify my work/time and to have some automated, social-driven income. I definitely won't back down but I think I will not spend so many hours a day/week playing with custom-made accounts etc. I probably will take it slower but try to automate it even more and see where it will get me.

    Nope, I don't think that will happen this time - every blog is receiving the same ambiguous answer - "You have been doing spam and affiliate marketing which is against TOS and that's it. Bye"

    I have received some blogs back after several emails in the past.

    Don't stop here. Keep moving. You have something greater than the blogs you lost.
    You have the formula. Recreate on T$mblr, other sites and especially your own...

    Yeah I'm not stopping or anything, I'm just merely noting that this time they seem truly furious and they are swinging their ban hammer like a porn actor's dick.
