Okay, if you see you are having those annoying ads that say “ads not by this site” on your tumblr, youtube, facebook, wherever, out of nowhere HERE IS HOW TO GET RID OF THEM OK.
So I have chrome, I’m not sure what to do on anything else sorry.

Deal Boat should be on that list so find it and click it and click ok to whatever comes up and that shit is outta ur hair aight
As if letting third parties post advertising materials under peoples’ names without their consent wasn’t bad enough, Tumblr is now playing the audio of ads for stuff from nowhere on my dashboard. What the hell, @staff?
Does ANYONE out there catch ads on their queue or their blogs that look like they were reblogged by you? They are mysteriously disguised as normal photo/text posts, but come from business blogs that I don’t follow, such as yahoo, and old navy.
I’ve changed my password multiple times, changed my post through e-mail address, added two factor authentication, all multiple times. This has been happening for like a year.
I think it has something to do with queueing using the Command + E keyboard shortcut. If anyone has any insight PLEASE help me. I’ve googled so much. For now I think I’m going to stop using the keyboard shortcuts (sad :’( .. )and see if that fixes it.
There are so many ads on tumblr >-< on my dash, there are so many unwanted sponsored posts, and on all the tags, as you scroll through the ads keep appearing, until there’s more sponsored posts than the posts with the tag I’m browsing through.
List of the accounts of corporations on Tumblr who have hijacked my blog
As promised in my last post (I’ll link that at the bottom), here is the aforementioned list of accounts of tumblr who have been advertising their products and releases DIRECTLY THROUGH MY REBLOGS, QUEUE AND ARCHIVE.
(This is probably a decent list of companies to avoid contact with on tumblr due to this super shady form of advertising, I know for sure I’ll be boycotting all use of them)
I’m also going to block any of these corporation’s accounts in the hope that puts an end to them advertising through my url without my permission, I’ll repost this if it works to let nyone else having the same problem know that it’s effective in stopping this.
these are the names of accounts and sources I could find in the last few days who have interfered with my blog, I would stress to any users to avoid these accounts seeing as this method of advertising is pretty shameful tbh.
I’m going to add to this post periodically as I find more accounts who I know have been doing this- don’t worry, I will continue looking and monitoring- and I’m hoping this’ll become some kind of masterpost on the subject.
I’m sure I’m not the only tumblr user affected by this unconsensual form of advertising, and I’m hoping this can at least raise some awareness of the corporations who tend to advertise this way. Please please share this, and please, no matter what your follower count is, check your queue, archive and blog posts to make sure you’re not affected too.
To all of my followers (yes, even you, spam porn blogs) I just want to let you know that I have NOT been reblogging ads. I’ve reset my password twice and these ads are still on my blog. Also, posts from people I don’t follow and have never heard of before. So idk wtf is up with that, but I wanted to let you know.
