Tumblr SEO Benefits
When you add links to Tumblr, they are dofollow links, which means there is a certain flow of authority, PageRank, and “link juice” to your pages according to Search Engine Journal. This is unique. Most social networks set their outbound links to nofollow. Things get really interesting when you consider the social aspect.
According to Moz, an SEO and inbound marketing authority, Tumblr may impact search rankings.
“Tumblr has social sharing functionality called “reblogging.” This means that if you have a popular post, it will be reposted to many other Tumblr blogs.
Moz continues, “Each of these reblogs is a dofollow backlink to your original post. If you have a post that is reblogged 100 times, your Tumblr blog just got 100 dofollow backlinks!
Bottom line, this means your Tweets, Pins and Instragrams can be used to improve your search engine presence and awareness. You already have the content, put it to another use.
