Is anyone making money from Tumblr?

A few days ago, I coded a Tumblr bot that will scrape/post niche relevant photos to Tumblr with a custom photo description, source, and tags.

I thought that the tags on 200+ uploaded photos would be able to pull some traffic, but I haven't had much luck at all. Is anyone making decent money from Tumblr?

      Well, I've used Tumblr to advertise one of the communities I've been working on for a while. Target were young creative adults. There was no sale, only free registration and Tumblr did a decent job - it was third on the traffic sources list. That is actually the only time I was able to find a purpose of Tumblr.

        Yes, I have been at it for about 7 months now and make some good money from adsense and a bit from mylikes. With any site or blog it's still all about having the right niche, finding the right audience and giving it time to build a following.

    You should understand your market there. Usually they are teenagers and they are there to have fun, share cool or funny stuff, they are not there to look for something to buy but they can be very active to make things go viral, click happy, and so on. People can make decent money there if they can understand and monetize from their market's behavior. Selling products won't do well because most of them are in school and don't have their own money or work yet.

    I have to agree with @cynzdareveur. Its all the ecosystem. Most of the users on tumblr are kids and are not really looking to purchase products

    Yes you can, as part of a complete social media strategy, and depending on what you offer you'll make sales.

    We do.
