Tumblr Love

I love tumblr

So everyone I just wanted to make this quick hub to share with you all my tumblr experience after using it for some 6 months plus now.

So first I would just like to start by saying my overall opinion, I personally believe that tumblr is a really great way to share different media with the world within the community of tumblr.

Unfortunately tumblr isn't too great when it comes to SEO as it really gets most of its traffic from a user searching with the site itself. So if your after a site to get allot of traffic from google then your really best not looking at tumblr and going for somewhere like Wordpress.

Tumblr is also more directed at photo sharing, although tumblr allows the user to blog different media such as text, video, and sound as well as photo, the majority of the focus lies within sharing photos. I have noticed that text articles get very little notice on tumblr.

As I have just said tumblr is great for photo sharing and to be honest I dont think I have seen a site that does this better. You can easily find any type of photo you like by simply searching the tumblr database which is very easy to do. I have found some of the most amazing images within the tumblr community. What is even better is that if you find a great image online then you can share it with everyone and they can reblog it to their own tumblr blog. When they do this they will be automatically be giving you creddit for finding the image and this helps to raise your blogs traffic. This even results in somtimes getting more followers to your blog.

I have said the word blog quite allot, but to be honest its best for you to view tumblr as more of a photo blog as that is what I mostly see on tumblr. The site has the most easy to use interface that you could possibly imagine. I honestly dont think it could be made any easier. If you wish to share a photo you can eithier paste the link in and tumblr will automatically fetch the image, or you can upload an image from your computer or even in some cases smart phone. Sharing other media is just as simple, text is a case of write and submit. Videos is a case of paste and submit, and links is pretty much the same.

I think the reason I love tumblr so much is the fact that I love photography. I think of tumblr as a more social type of pinterest. If you, like me, love seeing amazing photos then I really couldn't see a reason why you shouldnt sign up to this site. Its a great way to discover and share photos.

Now I will try and put you on track as to wheather tumblr is right for your needs.

If your after a site to get paid for writing then tumblr really isn't for you. This is mostly because of that lack of external traffic again.

However tumblr really has a great interactive communuty, and with it getting larger by the day, surely thats worth a sign up.

Anyway everyone thats it for this hub, thanks for taking the time to read, please share your tumblr opinions with me.
