    I mean we all know that Tumblr's were great back in 2015, early 2016, however after the redirect update from Tumblr we got hardly any info, all I've seen so far is a "meh" case study where the guy didn't even rank top 10 from what I remember.

    I wonder how well expired tumblrs work right now without having to do any backlinking to them (otherwise I'd rather create 301's like bit.ly goo.gl tinyurl etc and spam these.... that's not the point of using tumblr)

    That's a shame =( Finally found some good 40+ PA Tumblrs.

    I guess PBNs really are the only way now.

    You can use it for anchor text ratio.

    i read that tumblrs with a lot of backlinks are still good for passing link juice. page authority doesn't really seem to matter if there isn't live backlinks.

    I just registered and filled a few up with content yesterday and today, so ill so how it works in a few weeks

    Wastage of time I think, but I stand to be corrected if others have a better strategy of using them.

    One thing about web 2.0s... DISREGARD PA. Please, do yourself a favor and ignore this metric. I can get you PA 50+ web 2.0s which are full of nofollow links and won't do crap. Unless they have live and d0follow backlinks, don't even think for a second you have some kind of gold in your hands, because you do not. And yes, Tumblrs still work quite fine actually. Not as amazing like a year ago, but still make the job done.
