    Got my tumblr deleted although they never tell you that it's suspended untill you email them asking what happened to your account. They said it was considered spam. The account was new and I followed 200 users everyday and posted pictures with watermark on them. I don't post links so what is considered spam? posting pics with watermark is spam? following is spam? what does tumblr think that is considered spam so I can avoid being detected again?

    followed 200 users everyday - hitting limit every day = flag + new acc
    posted pictures with watermark- 99% sure those pics are not yours = u cannot use watermark
    Probably you got also reported by users because it was annoying
    Tumblr support sux and they never tell you what you done wrong

    Aggressive follow and unfollow method never works with tumblr even you have aged account, You need to make it look natural. Posting water mark pics is not spam.

    The key with all these sites is you need to appear natural, 200 follows a day is what did it

    Yeah, most bots allow you to set a range for follows that way you're never following the same amount over and over again 110-180 would be good if you really want to be safe. Also maybe try reblogging/queuing a few posts as well so say that way there's more variety and you look like you're actually interacting with the community.

    Tumblr did approve the use of ads and affiliate links a while back, they just said not to overdo it and that they want an actual community not just people trying to sell shit or endorse a product.

    I always love to read comments from a real Tumblr expert like you, if you have done a Journey thread or some tip thread about Tumblr or even Blog posts, please let me know.

    You were following too many people dude! How come you are surprised? Tumblr is super strict and if you want to spam and you are not the very careful type you may wanna consider useing another site.

    I completely agree with the last sentence. They sux badly, almost everytime. Sometimes they don't even bother to reply at the questions, I'm almost sure they ban emails too. They never point at the real problem.
    I follow back all who follows me, till the 200/day limit and 5000 maximum. No problem about that untill now.
    On tumblr you can find old blogs (2, 3 years old)with advertising on them, you report them but no response, no ban. Must be staff\s blogs since if you put a banner on your blog and get banned at the first report.

    so following way too many people in a short amount of time, posting pics with watermark are considered spam

    can you please say what other activities can get your tumblr account banned?

    thanks in advance

    They even terminate accounts that do absolutely nothing, having 3 posts. That's it

    Just got terminated as well. followed around 150 a day and unfollow an alternate day, resting on weekends. It has no affiliate links, only direct shares from my site. Tumblr sucks for SEO now and they are having tough time monetizing their own traffic and justifying to investors. I'm guessing its days are numbered.

    I really doubt you guy say everything you are doing on those tumblrs to get them banned.
    What type of outbound links do you use, what IP's (proxy? shared? dedi? public? vpn? home ip?), how do you login, what software do you use?

    Now
    I am using tumblr for the past 4-5 years, both for seo and for traffic.
    For seo I think I built easily more than a couple thousands accounts, re-registering expired blogs. Out of every thousand accounts I rarely get 1 banned. Now this may be because I login manually a couple of time to them and they usually have 2-5 posts on them and 1-2 outbound links.

    For traffic, I login both manually and with tumblingjazz. I go for the upper limit with following, liking and uploading the queue.
    For following I go usually for 180-195. They allow maximum 200 follows per day and 5000 follows in total per account.
    For liking I go for 700 to start the first few days, then I go for 900-980. Their limit is 1000 per day.
    For queue I go for their maximum 300.
    Every few days I forget to start tumblingjazz and they get a rest.
    I rarely get any accounts banned. Same as with the accounts I use for seo. Maybe that is because of the pausing days and I guess that my IPs are clean.

    Before jumping to conclusions of how tumblr is strict or not working anymore, make sure you know your shit. Test, test and test.
    Just like with the "seo is dead" there will always be some lazy fucks that will try one method and because they fail will "think" NOTHING works.

    Residential dynamic IP, Followliker bot, 100-200 likes/follows/unfollows, follow and unfollowing on alternate days, resting on weekends. It's pretty normal settings. Each post is a share from my webstore. I login from time to time and schedule my tumblr posts in the system. I do not reblog from other tumblr blogs though.

    It's either followliker bot (I haven't tried it) or your website.
    Are you using only one tumblr account from your pc?
