Good post. Are you still able to add Google Adsense Ads to Tumblr though?
I believe google stopped displaying their ads on Tumblr sites towards the end of 2016.
If you are still able to please let us know.

Hi EbizWorldWide :)
Recently I have seen AdSense is displaying on tumblr site but not generating any income. However except Blogger Platform in other platform Google AdSense support only Top-level domain for AdSense. So if you use top level domain in any other platform then you must able to use AdSense.

For using Google AdSense on tumblr you should buy a custom top-level domain. Through below URL you can buy

Simply configure custom domain with tumblr and place AdSense code. I hope it will work flawlessly.
