Tumblr is by far the fastest growing platform for micro blogging and when it comes to Social Media it’s quickly becoming a contender to pay attention to as it grows and blossoms. If you are using Twitter, G+ and/or Facebook, you should be sure to take a look at just how Tumblr can help you increase your site traffic and backlinks.
There are a number of methods that can be used to create White Hat backlinks and traffic – Tumblr happens to be one of them. You can post text, music, videos, audios, pictures, links, etc. on Tumblr. While the majority use Tumblr like a social media site, many bloggers and marketers see where it has other value and they use it for their business.
As a professional blogger, you need to recognize what Tumblr can do for you. There’s no question, using Tumblr to build up SEO for your site isn’t the most common method of achieving this task, but it is an excellent tool for this and other marketing tasks. It might take you a bit to adapt to using Tumblr, but don’t worry because you will get the hang of it and before long you’ll be loving it. Tumblr is an incredible tool for significantly improving your traffic.
Using Tumblr to create links to your site provides you with what is referred to as White Hat backlinks. This means that Google will not penalize you because these are legitimate links. Remember the most followers on Tumblr come from images that are catchy and fascinating, so don’t make all your posts text because you’ll lose out on a lot of potential traffic that you can later direct to your site through the power of a link.
Tumblr is also a valuable tool in helping you get a better Page rank. Just a few quality content posts with consistent attention and you can easily earn a Page Rank of 3 or 4. Make great posts and increase your following and your traffic and then the links to your site will also have more punch and help to improve your site Page Rank, especially as the number of people sharing your posts grows too.
It really is a game of numbers and you need to work on growing your traffic numbers by incorporating Tumblr into your backlink and social media strategies. Doing so will net you the best return for your time and efforts. Remember, you do need to post regularly to your Tumblr – at least once a day, to enjoy the full benefits.
