Multiple Free Backlinks - The Hidden Potential Of Tumblr Pages And How To Utilize Followers

Updated on March 17, 2014

2014 UPDATE!

Tumblr is now the 9th most visited website on the internet, you DO NOT want to miss out on this marketing opportunity!

What Is Tumblr?

Tumblr is a blogging site that is a mix between your standard blog, and Twitter. What makes it like Twitter? Well for one thing, you can follow other blogs. The other part, the best part, is the ability to reblog other blogs. There's even one Tumblr account called "We Are Hubpages" this is fairly new, but they are there dedicated to building free backlinks just for you. We'll talk more about that later.

Another great thing is how you can add Google AdSense into your Tumblr, so if you're getting hits, you can make some money. Now it's not only free backlinks, but possibly a profitable site!

Between the ability to build backlinks, have other people spread your backlinks, and make some cash off of AdSense, it seems to me like Tumblr is the place to be, and I want to spread the word so that others can benefit from this free blog site as much as I do.

Using Tumblr For SEO

Many people know that blogs are essential to SEO.  You can build up PageRank quickly and thus give you an excellent place to place backlinks.

There's many blog sites like Blogger, WordPress, and Tumblr.  Personally, I use WordPress when I make a website, but a blog for the sake of blogging? I highly suggest Tumblr.

Again, this is because of the reblog feature, which is paramount in getting multiple backlinks, along with exposure and traffic.

Free Backlinks - Tumblr's Reblog Feature

As I mentioned before, there's a blog called We Are Hubpages that builds free back links for anyone who needs them. All you need to do is have a Tumblr to submit. On that Tumblr, they have a Submit button where you follow the directions provided, and they will do the rest. You can submit as many as you want, though many in a row would be rude and unnatural, so it probably wouldn't benefit you. It's ideal to submit one or two a day. The blog then posts one or two a day to their page. Instant backlink! Unfortunately, for now, the PR is 0 meaning the backlinks hold basically no weight. Waste of time, right? Not really, and here's why: the reblog function. If everyone who submits also follows, and then reblogs, suddenly it's all getting spread across Tumblr, onto multiple pages with multiple PR's. The more people follow and reblog, the more these links get spread around. It's all a community in it to help each other out. Plus, on your OWN Tumblr, you can post your own links and your own followers can then reblog, and the whole process is done again.

[EDIT] If the We Are Hubpages account disappears or stops being moderated, don't panic! That shouldn't stop you from making your own Tumblr, following people, and posting your own content. Don't forget to reblog others so they'll reblog you. It's a community effort!

All Of Our Hubs Can Benefit

If we all get on there and follow each other and reblog each other, we could all benefit in huge ways.  This isn't a link exchange program.  This is simply us posting our own links on Tumblr and other people spreading the word.  Viral marketing for your Hubpages!

Follow me at and I'll be sure to follow you back and reblog you.
