Tumblr Introduces the Explore Page

Written on February 24, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Do you tag your posts on Tumblr? Well, you should start learning your SEO concepts so you can see your content on Tumblr's Explore page.

If you have a Tumblr account and  you tag your posts, it’s time to work on your SEO. Why? Because Tumblr just added the new Explore page.

The Tumblr Explore page organizes blog posts by tags due to the eclectic nature of the platform. Unless you have a niche on Tumblr, there’s a big chance that your posts will be all over the map. Which means that your Tumblr blog will have difficulty being seen in the Directory. The Explore page makes Tumblr experience more democratic, enabling tagged posts to appear on the page and get target audience.

But while this move curates Tumblr a bit, the Directory page becomes least visible. And there’s no easy way yet to uncover it, but by typing the www.tumblr.com/directory alone.

Are you happy with the new Tumblr Explore page, or would your rather stick to the Directory? Leave your opinions on the comment box.

Tumblr Queues Get an Ovehaul

Written on October 06, 2010 by Japhet Writ

2 persons

Tumblr fans, your benevolent overlords have just bestowed upon you a gift the likes of which you can never hope to repay. Thank God, Tumblr queues are no longer the headache-inducing deathtraps they once were.

Tumblr queues are no longer a headache, because the hub for tons of images, videos and texts got a new UI/UX tweaks. If a Tumblr user spends endless hours surfing the web to hand-pick blog materials before, it’s not the same way anymore. Users can now rearrange their posts quickly through a simple drag-and-drop. More over, it is now easy to get back to the top of the page because of the nifty “page up” button.

With the interface much sleeker and the relevant data taking the front end, your queued posts are now lazy-loaded for speed and efficiency! With Tumblr’s new look, users can now save time in accomplishing their blogging tasks. And that is what Tumblr blogging is all about.

A Tumblr user? What do you think of the new Tumblr Queues?
