Remove Tumblr url Redirect

Comments 15

It does actually remove the redirects, but only if you look at the page. Try to view the page source/HTML code from the backend, it has redirects, and I checked it on, there's no do-follow links detected, I think doing this method is still not considered as do-follow backlink, Does it?

You can use MOZ bar to check if the Tumblr links are dofollow. As you can see the links in the description area are dofollow:

Also, as you can see the Tumblr post links are dofollow too, even with the redirect in place and not removed:

To check for yourself you need to add the MOZ Bar extension to Chrome.

Then click on the pencil icon and select "Followed". All dofollow links will be highlighted in GREEN.

Any questions let me know 🙂

Also, you can look at source code: hold down "Shift" and "CTRL" and "C". Go ahead and select the link and you will notice that the link element does not have a nofollow attribute attached to it rel="nofollow". The links are dofollow.

Just what I was looking for, now I don’t get the redirect from Tumblr and I am now certain the juice will pass to my website.

The ranking juice passes anyway, however it gives people peace of mind without the redirect in place.

Worked for me, now I know the juice will pass to my website. I had been looking for a way to remove the Tumblr redirect on backlinks for ages, thank you for sharing this information your blog is amazing by the way keep it up.

The juice will pass with the redirect in place, I have tried and tested it. Anyway, it’s always good to have the traffic flow quickly to your website, sometimes with a redirect in place a real website visitor might click back having to wait for the page to load. I will keep the posts coming 🙂

Lol hi, that’s my code. Remove it or credit magnusthemes@tumblr

Yes I know, the credit is in the code 🙂 for all to see

I meant, add a credit/link back to my original Tumblr post in your tutorial. I think it’s pretty rude to just re-upload my code elsewhere without even a link back to the source.

Sorry Bev, I didn’t read your original Tumblr post, I got the code from a tumblr that did not have the URL redirect and worked it in from there. I am happy to add a link to the source if you send me the URL 🙂

Hey Bev, I don’t usually comment, but I want to comment to specially thank you for creating this awesome code.

Yes it’s great 🙂 removes the Tumblr redirect so thank you for that it is much appreciated by all of us.

WOW, thanks Nick it worked for me 🙂 No more Tumblr redirects.

No problem, it’s a nice easy way to remove the redirect from the links in your Tumblr blog posts.
