    Hey everyone,
    Is it just me, or are all newly created tumblr accounts crippled by not having their post tags show up in tag search ? This has been happening to me for a couple of months now.
    Ive tried email verifying the accounts, changing themes, changing avatars but nothing is working for me. Can anyone help ?
    Thanks in advance

    Forgot to mention, at the moment i have over 10,000 tumblr accounts that do not show up in tag searches, but these accounts are working fine in every other way.
    The method i was using relied heavily on tag search so these accounts are redundant at the minute unless anyone can think of a way to use them ?

    Also, does anyone know if the email verification link has to be clicked from the same IP address as the account was created ?

    Unless they recently changed this, then no. I signed up at home and verified on my phone via 3G. Also, my tags show up in a search just fine.

    I face a similar problems with some accounts.
    Especially the ones administrated with bots.
    Thinking that tumblr might have some spam filters.

    Yes, I have noticed this as well. None of my new posts on new accounts appear in the tag search. But after a few days, and getting some followers, my posts begin appearing in tag search as usual.

    It seems Tumblr may be either blocking blogs which are brand new...or blocking blogs that don't have some number of followers.

    What are you using for email addresses to create those 10,000 accounts?
