Look for the Search box at the top right of your Dashboard, or visit tumblr.com/search. Type things in and hit enter. Witness a rich mosaic of results. You have just performed a search.
It’s easy, you just have to use the right syntax for your search. For example:
You can always remove your blog from all search engine results (including our own) by turning off the "Allow search engines to index your blog" option in your Blog Settings.
Tags make it easier for readers to find posts about a specific topic on your blog. For instance, you could tag your landscape photographs with #landscape or posts about your butler with #butler.
It’s as easy as you’d expect. When you create a post, enter the tags in the field at the bottom of the post form.
If your theme supports them, yes. You can find themes that display tags with each post at tumblr.com/themes. Even if a theme doesn’t show post tags, they will still appear in the Dashboard and be searchable across Tumblr.
You can add tags to keep your posts organized, but they won't be searchable on Tumblr.
A Tag page is a dashboard-style view of all the posts that are tagged with a given tag. They’re a fine way to keep up with specific topics on Tumblr. Most of them are in simple reverse-chronological order, but a few of the high-volume tag pages are curated by select users, which makes their contents a little more flavorful. Have a look at the #gif, #lol, or #fashion tags to see what we’re talking about.
It’s as simple as clicking the tag on your Dashboard or adding the tag name to the end of tumblr.com/tagged. So if you want to check out the #boba tag, you’d go to tumblr.com/tagged/boba. If you’re more of a #bubble tea person, visit tumblr.com/tagged/bubble-tea.
They’re tags whose posts you want to keep track of, plainly enough. If you’re interested in croissants and you want to see all of the croissant posts that come through Tumblr, then you should track the #croissant tag. You could easily do the same with #eclair, #palmier, or #brioche. You can even track tags that aren’t related to pastry.
Just click the Search box at the top of your Dashboard. New posts will be reflected below the tag name, but this number won’t appear if you’re tracking more than 20 tags.
Tip: Hit the tab key from anywhere on the Dashboard to pop open your list of tracked tags.
Just add /tagged/tag to your blog’s URL. For example:
These links will only show the 200 most recent posts with that tag in reverse chronological order (latest posts on top).
To display posts in chronological order (older posts on top), add /chrono to the end of the tag URL (i.e. http://staff.tumblr.com/tagged/features/chrono).

You can alert our team to this kind of thing by flagging the post for us. We’ll be notified about it, we’ll handle it appropriately from there.
If you need a refresher on what does and doesn’t belong on Tumblr, have a look at our Community Guidelines themselves.
Hover over the post. See the little flag? Just click on it. Select the type of violation you’re reporting, and voila! You’ve flagged a post. You will no longer see that post in your search or dash and it will be sent to us to review.
Great question. Most of the violations are covered in the flagging form itself. Namely:
Right now, you can only flag posts when in search. As noted earlier, you can always submit an abuse report for content that you find elsewhere on the site. And, by the way, thanks for helping us keep Tumblr a positive and supportive place by flagging this stuff.
Long story short, we need to make sure you’re not a robot or a spammer. If your blog is brand new, make sure you’ve verified your account via the email we sent when you joined Tumblr. Once you’ve used your account for a while (and done normal, human things with it like follow other blogs and like or reblog posts), your posts will start appearing on Tag pages.
If you are a robot or a spammer, you should visit our account deletion page.
