    I have harvested a list of tumblr URL's with high PR and low outbound links (usually less than 20, mostly nofollow). After tumblr changed the "likes" to 'nofollow' there are still alternative ways to get 'do-follow' links from their blogs.

    The question is, if there will be an impact to my SERP rankings and Page Rank when I use those links. Google Webmaster Tools show's all tumblr backlinks as coming from one domain. Only in the detailed view you can see the different subdomains.

    So I'm really not sure about the value of those backlinks.
    Does any one of you have experience with backlinks from tumblr?

    They help in link diversity but won't boost your rankings.

    These links were worthy before Penguin update Penguin Update But now these links are not effective.

    Do the people who say they aren't worth anything have any evidence?
    I find it hard to believe that they don't pass value if they are do-follow.

    Guys I have reports on positive serp improvement only from high PR tumblr links.
    And I don't say it just because I sell tumblr blogs with PR on bhw.
    You can also ask clients from bhw that use them effectively.

    If you think that they aren't effective atleast support your statement.

    Perhaps not as good as they were, but still worth something imo. For low competion keywords have got tumblr blogs ranked just by Likes and Reblogs on tumblr.

    If a subdomain is treated as an individual site, by liking / reblogging a 100 times a day, you are getting 100 links a day. Ok so they are nofollow, but I am 100% sure google DOES follow them, just doesn't give them as much credence as a ********. But whatever, they are easy to get, so why not?

    I look at tumblr as being much more effective for driving traffic. I made blog for certain niche while back. I can post stuff for my other sites related to it and get 50 uniques within few hours. Just from posting.

    It also gains followers daily

    Wonder how many people post opinions and don't have any experience with this subject? Yes they do
    help and if nothing else they increase your traffic if your articles are any good.

    You are right. Tumblr can drive traffic pretty easy.
    However people forget that if you post a link and you get traffic through it, the Link Value is higher than other link that get no clicks.

    Good as a source of traffic, and depending on your content can also flow good link juice...
