GDPR and Tumblr RSS issue - CyberSEO Pro

GDPR and Tumblr RSS issue

As you may know, after four years of preparation and debate the GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. It was enforced on 25 May 2018 – and organizations that are not compliant could now face heavy fines. So many websites have changed their privacy policy which affected the behavior. And unfortunately Tumblr  is one of these sites. The CyberSEO users who have their servers located in the EU are unable to pull the Tumblr  RSS feeds (e.g. http://ign.tumblr.com/rss) because the URL redirects to https://www.tumblr.com/privacy/consent. Here is an easy solution for you:

1) Click “Alter default setting”.

2) Find the “User agent” field and put there the following line:

Baidu UA ("Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Baiduspider; +http://www.baidu.com/search/spider.html)"

3) Click “Update default Settings”.

Done! Now you will be able to syndicate Tumblr  RSS feeds with CyberSEO running at your EU-based server.
