2) Dofollow links

Most blog software creates allows you to create a link to yourself when you comment on a blog post. Links bring traffic to your site when they click the link, but each link can also count as a “vote” for your site with search engines.

  13. Just a question. If Tumblr is not only a social network, but your profile is like a blog, then the only way to use it to increase a PR is to have something like parallel blog, but not with the same articles and links because it will be considered spam. Am I correct? I mean, if I post parts of my articles from my site (with links) to my Tumblr profile and if I don't have many connections in Tumlr, is this meaningless?
