How to Get Hundreds of Followers on Tumblr – The Ultimate Guide

Tired of making daily posts with nice pictures and quotes knowing that noone is following you?.  Here you will find the ultimate Guide to know How To Get Followers on Tumblr.  With all the other social media sites becoming popular on Tumblr has never been easier.

Just apply the following Tumblr Tips in a daily basis and you will see your followers base grow faster than anyone else.

A very popular term among Tumblrs, is “Tumblr Train”, which is basically a chain of users asking and giving follows for follows, if you make a quick search on tumblr you will find tons of them.

Getting into I Follow You Follow Schemes

If you ever played any social facebook game like Farmville, you might know that there are pages exclusively dedicated to get friends for that game.  The I Follow You Follow scheme works exceptionally well there. For example this page have quite a lot of tumblrs willing to follow you if you follow them first.  Even Tumblr’s very own Facebook page is plagued with the “please follow me” spam.  One important thing to notice is that you have to make sure you post shout there several times a day, so your Tumblr keeps getting noticed. The way how you can get hundreds of followers here is mainly only by following others, but if your objective is that, then the goal justify the means.

Liking Reblogging and Commenting Everyone’s posts

Liking and Reblogging other very popular Tumblelogs will likely get you followers, since these accounts in particular get quite a few views per day.  If the blog has the comment section enabled you can also leave a comment there.  All this is even more effective if you are blogging on some particular area of interest, for example, if you are a nature photographer you will reach a better audience if you like, reblog and comment someone who posts pics of animals.  Now, I’d suggest you are careful with this technique since It might get your account suspended if your start spamming with “Please Follow Me” comments.

Making Your Own Tumblr Worth The Following

If your Tumblr has 1 post along with 1 quote I doubt you will keep your followers interested. Choose a theme that fits the purpose of your Tumblr. A nice profile, with a short but smart decription is useful, choose your nickname to be unique. Create a daily posting frequency, you don’t have to create dozens of posts, 1 or 2 is just enough, otherwise you might get banned and this floodings are annoying for the people following you, quality goes first here.  Quotes are an essencial attachment to the picture you are posting, you will find thousands of quotes of your interest here.

Sexy or Not

Definitely, erotic or porn Tumblrs get tons of followers. One would think that these accounts get deleted almost instanctly, but I guess since they get a ton of traffic the owners better keep them active.  I remind you that all the nudity or porn pictures you post must be high quality and high resolution!. This method doesn’t work if you are posting garden photos one day and nude girl the next one.

    I think the key is just talking to people who have blogs like you and keepin em close and checkin out ur blog. And then making a quality blog, stay themed if you want a lot of followers.

    if you follow a lot of people ask them to check out your blog and follow back, 99% of the time they will. Another way to gain followers is to google search promo tumblrs and add your url

    I don’t think I would ever post nude pictures up on such a popular site as tumblr to promote my blog. It’s cool if you do pornography or what not, I have nothing against that. But doing it for the sole purpose of getting more followers on a website is not a good idea if you are not considering the consequences of doing so.

    You should realize that if you use OUR PLAYLIST CODE, your player will use OUR SONGS. Why don’t you instead follow the steps carefully, create your own playlist at hypster and grab your own code there?

    But I must say, I am extremely disappointed in Tumblr for allowing such grizzly and graphic porn pictures :( what gives them the right to do that when they say their site is popular with teens??

    not only a good theme is enough.
    You can style your page like YOU want.
    use cursors
    playlists (for ex. SCM Player)
    customize as much as you can.
    Or search for ppl wich tell you that they follow back (:

    Hey there, I enjoyed reading this post, it is a nice help to go in the right direction. I’ve just started a blog myself. I’d like to outline some points I think are important when blogging:

    *It helps if you’re passionate about the subject you are blogging about. If you truly are passionate, you will have a lot to write about.

    *Don’t make a blog just to get people to follow you. You are unlikely to get famous if all you want is just that.

    *If you are struggling to think of something to write about or share, perhaps your subject matter is too narrow? Try to broaden the subject or include more subjects. Lets say you are blogging about solar power – Why not blog about wind power as well? Why not just make your blog about being green?

    *Use the language of the people you want to follow you. If you’re writing like me and want to attract the wannabe gangsta type of people, your doing it wrong, You should be like, what you sayin man? Get me blud.

    I hope my advice has helped =)

    On Tumblr, the Ask box is your best tool if you want to get followers. You can use it to create relationships, ask bloggers to check out your blog and drive traffic to your blog. One word of caution—do not be insincere when you ask people to check out your blog. One of the most disappointing messages a blogger can receive is “Hey, I love your blog, do you mind checking mine out?” because it’s clear that the compliment is hollow. Bloggers understand that you want to gain followers, so be direct and ask them to check out your blog—they will understand what you are trying to do and they will look at your blog. Bloggers have feelings too!

    I’m actually new to Tumblr myself and I posted a few pics and followed a few friends that I know already and they followed me back as still super confused on how to attract new followers, So um I’m taking the tip from above. I’ll instantly follow back anyone who follows me! :) Hellomyra

    It’s hard to get followers on tumblr.
    Like everything, you have to be hard worker 24/7
    and post quality content related to your niche.

    Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your
    blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thank you, I appreciate it!

    Thanks for the useful tips, I had not thought about looking at Tumblr’s own facebook page, and I see there’s always a constant stream of people who follow back. All the more resourceful since the newer posts must come from active Tumblr users instead of a random blog post that may have been submitted years ago.

    1. choose a specific topic for your blog.
    2. KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) – don’t overload your theme with lag causing instant play songs, sparkle effects and such. Choose a tumblr theme that has easy-to-read text and doesn’t chop your photos in half. Keep it neat looking. Dont use popups or redirects or annoying ads.
    3. choose a tumblr url that reflects your blog topic.
    4. keep adult images and videos seperated to their own blogs. nobody wants to see your porn stash unless they’re looking for it specifically, right?

    take your blog to or another tumblr follow site and promote it and let people know you follow back (if you do)

    I gain about 1000 followers per month with this method.

    If you spam facebook public pages with your tumblr link you will get banned from posting on public sites on facebook.

    If you put nude or inappropriate pics up you will not be able to register for many pay per click ad providers like google adsense.

    Post what you like, I dont understand the point of having followers that don’t like what you post or having a dashboard full of crap due to “follow back” schemes.

    Here’s a tip to add:

    Don’t forget to tag things! I was forgetting to tag my posts and was wondering why I wasn’t getting any hits. Then it hit me. No one could discover me.

    Also remember, be patient. Sometimes it’ll take a while for followers to ‘explode’. Like, on my old blog, it took me a year to get to 74 followers, then two months after I got to 74, I had 146. The more followers you have, the more people reblog, then more people see you and etc.

    I suggest also tagging known blogs and users to get their attention. Do not bombard them with annoying “follow me” or “check out my blog” asks. If you have a nice theme and posts worth reblogging and a simple or easy to recognize / unique URL then you will attract interest. After you gain a stable following then it is easier to post what you actually want. But if followers is what you are after initially then it’s best to post what appeals to the majority.

    I’ve followed some of this steps and I have got 800+ followers. I don’t know how the people with 100.000+ have got so much followers…


  45. Piper

    June 16, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    I look through the “promos” tag and get promos (and promo back usually)
    Also I frequently make posts saying I follow back and tag them with things such as #follow for follow
    I will do promos, and people usually gain a lot from them.
    Remember, people are selfish. Make them want/need to follow you in order to receive something for themselves. For example, offer promos for anyone who follows you, and tell them they will gain a lot. (you don’t even have to do the promo in the end… hehe)
