    Tumblr hostile to SAS links?
    Greetings fellow ABestWebsters,

    This afternoon I tried embedding a ShareASale link into my new Tumblr blog. Upon posting the blog entry, my account was immediately blocked, with a message that I would have to reset my password. Not knowing exactly what caused the concern, I reset the password and tried again.

    After several attempts, I was able to isolate the problem to the ShareASale link. It appears that Tumblr treats any URL redirect as an attempt to hack their system.

    Has anybody else run into this behavior? For now it looks like I'll have to fluff up my ISP account and get WordPress or a CMS fired up to host affiliate links.

    I finally got an answer back from Tumblr. Although I could not find this anywhere in their TOS, their tech support's answer is crystal clear:

    Hi Scott

    We don't allow affiliate marketing on Tumblr. Sorry.

    Needless to say this should disqualify Tumblr as a platform for us.
