When you plug, all you're doing is submitting your URL. We don't require you to grant access(Tumblr API) from your Tumblr.
No other information is gathered or can be besides your URL and Portrait Image. So your account will be 100% safe using Blog-Plug.
You will never be asked for a password or email when using this service.
No, all you do is submit your tumblr URL and a description about your blog and been seen by thousands of people.
We will never ask for your email/password or ever charge you to use this service.
We also don't require you to install any plugins on your tumblr and will never ask you to.
blog-plug.com has been running over a year+ without incident of any users having a issue by using this service.
Nope, we don't have any access to your blog ever, even when plugging.
We have gotten so big by word of mouth and users showing support by linking back.
We have designed the link back(Top promoters) system for users that would like to show support by allowing them to link back directly from their blog.
Making a text post about the link is at the sole discretion of the user, and spamming the link will not work as it has to be clicked from your blog. (It helps prevent spam)
There're many different ways to gain, but the easiest way to do so is to plug often. We notice a lot of new users that are only plugging 1 - 20 times daily, when the average user plugs 200+ times a day.
Also, check out other blogs on Blog-Plug as it counts towards your dedicated pluggers points and you may find a few that you like.
Please note, visitors are almost as good as followers. Some visitors may or may not follow you for many reasons but they may reblog your own posts without following you,
in return getting you more followers.
Even though your plug is pushed off the main page within seconds it's seen by hundreds, it's up to the Blog-Plug users if they find your icon/description interesting to visit/follow. That's why it's a must to plug often and plug your blog in the correct catgories as pluging in categories stay up for longer.
You will see a countdown like this "The next promo game starts in X seconds." Once the countdown reaches 0, a " Play Now " link will appear.
Once you click on that link enter your Tumblr URL before the lobby closes. If the game is full or the lobby has locked since the promo game started, you will have to wait till the next promo game.
If you see "A promo game is currently in progress..." the game has already started and you will have to wait till it finishes and starts it count down again.
You can submit a new category by just typing it in. If more users type in the same category and if it's more popular than one of the top 30 categories it will be added automatically throughout the site.
The spotlight section will randomly select people as they plug. It will also increase or decrease when it randomly selects depending on how many users are online. The whole idea behind it is to give random pluggers more exposure time.
Make sure you plug your blog in the correct categories.
Make sure you have a good description of your blog. A description with random letters and numbers or long words like "follow" just show who you are, and most people will not want to visit or follow you for this reason, as it might seem you can be an annoying blogger.
If you just plug once a day you will more than likely not gain any visitors or followers due to the traffic on blog-plug.com getting your plug pushed off. That's why it's best to plug your blog in the correct categories so it will be up for longer. If you plug often on the site that's when you will see visitors/followers start coming in.
If you have a link back to blog-plug.com and someone clicks on it, you will get on Top Promoters. Also, your text will become bold when you plug for the duration that your visitors you referred remain on the site.
I'm always updating blog-plug.com finding new ways to get your tumblr out there.
Follow the rules and you can plug here as long as you want!
