    Hey,

    I was wondering if anyone here had experience cloaking links with Tumblr.
    What I mean is on source X I will push traffic to Tumblr using a bit.ly link, then on tumblr with a redirect script I push the traffic to a lander.

    So lets say I have 100 different bit.lys on source X, pushing traffic to 100 different tumblr blogs and in turn those 100 different tumblrs push to domain Y.

    This way source X will not see domain Y with lander, which is the goal, however, does tumblr do anything about this?
    Do they crawl the blogs and look for these scripts? It's written in javascript so there's no good way of hiding it either.

    Do they keep track of what domain you are sending the traffic to?

    If someone can let me know more on this subject, that'd be great.
    A PM is fine too.

    I tested something very similar to what you are proposing but my accounts were banned in a short time. I was being maybe too aggressive, for testing purposes, but from my experience they have some automated way to discover redirects.

    Maybe I'll try it again without being so invasive and upfront.
    Share your experience here if you have better luck.

    Why tumblr. You could always just use 2 link shorteners

    What is "in a short time" ? Weeks, months, days? Also how did you advertise aggressively? I am looking to send 100-200 UVs / day to every blog.
    Maybe we can think of a alternative? Blogger comes to mind for example.

    Let me know :)

    Thanks!

    link shorteners act as a different type of redirect, they get picked up very easily.
