Why are there ads on my Tumblr?
It's the first step towards a partnership program that would let eligible Tumblrs share in the revenue from running ads.
Where do the ads appear?
For now, ads run on the three instances of your Tumblr blog:
- Your main page (cheezbort.tumblr.com) if you're using the Optica (default) theme
- The slide-out thing on the web
- The mobile apps and mobile web
How do I turn off ads on my Tumblr?
If you're on the web:
- Go to your Tumblr's settings
- Flip the switch off for the appropriate Tumblrs
You'll be able to do it from the mobile apps soon.
Why were my ad settings switched off?
We reserve the right to opt out anyone from advertising on their Tumblr. We opt out certain Tumblrs that frequently post about self-harm and other sensitive topics.
Can I have ads on in some places and not others?
Maybe in the future. For now it's all on or all off.
Am I earning money for the ads that are running on my Tumblr right now? When can I start getting paid?
We're still working out the details but as soon as we have information to share, we'll let you know.
Who will be eligible for the partner program?
We're still working out all the details and figuring out eligibility requirements.
How much will I make from the ads?
Another thing we're still figuring out.
I have my own ads—will I be able to keep them?
Sure. But those will still only work on your public-facing page. Our partner program will also let you earn impressions from the slide-out thing on web, the mobile apps, and mobile web.
