    Lets say we have a new website example.com and a new web2.0 property example.tumblr.com

    Both have same amount / quality of content and just a few backlinks themselves because they are new.

    Which will give the stronger backlink?

    haha, I know: Just test it out, bro

    I will test it out. Just curious about your opinions

    What's stopping you from using both? That's the best choice, in my opinion.

    Theoretically the tumblr link will be more powerful, because it resides on an authoritative domain. At the end of the day we are discussing theory though, so....

    Test it man :p

    Hypothetically Tumbler and that domain have the same amount of link juice, but tumblr would have more domain authority, so that's probably a higher signal, also depends on relevancy of the content and other things like that. Cheers,

    Neither are going to be links which on their own make much of a difference to you. But of course, Tumblr is a site with authority and trust so it would have to be of more value to you than the link from the freshly created site.

    But test it out and report back your findings.

    Tough to say. Both points could be argued.
    Tumblrs domain has more authority obviously, but anyone can set up a Tumblr account, while a domain you actually have to buy, and pay for hosting which makes it more legit.
