Tap the magnifying glass in the app, look for the search box at the top 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.
Indeed. On the web:
And in the app, after tapping the abacus-looking thing next to the search field:
It’s easy, you just have to use the right syntax for your search. For example:
You can do it from your dashboard. Click a blog’s name or avatar to open it up, then click the magnifying glass at the top of the blog. Now type. Type like you mean it. Get your results.
(And as we mentioned, you can filter and sort those results by clicking the abacus-looking thing next to the search field.)
You can also search a blog directly from the blog’s URL, as long as their theme includes a search field. But why take the risk? Just use your dash.
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.
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).
Learn how to do that here.
They’re a way to follow searches, just like you’d follow blogs. Periodically, some of the best new posts from those searches will appear on your dashboard.
Search for something, then click or tap “Follow” in the search box.
Tap or click the search box, or (on the web) hit the tab key from anywhere on the dashboard.
Tip: Clicking or tapping the X in the upper right corner of a followed search post in the app will give you some choices: dismiss that particular post, unfollow the search, or flag the post as inappropriate.
Embedding a post on some other site is just another way of sharing it, right? So just click on the three dots at the bottom of a post (where all the other share options are), click “Embed,” and copy the code to your clipboard. Then just take that code on over to the other website, and paste it wherever in the HTML that embeds are supposed to go.
This is what the embedded post should look like:

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.
No matter where you see it-- on your dashboard, tag pages, or in search results-- just click the ellipsis (those three dots) and choose "Flag this post." That'll open the flagging form and you can tell us what you're reporting from there.
Depending on the violation you're reporting, we might need to ask you a few extra questions to help us respond quicker.
You'll know you've successfully flagged a post when you see the confirmation note. And perhaps more importantly: you'll never see it again.
Right now we don't have the flagging feature built for the blog network, so just submit an abuse report. Please, please, please include the post permalink or we won't know where to look and we won't be able to help.
Great question. Most of the violations are covered in the flagging form itself. Namely:
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.
