Guest Blogging is the posting of a blog post to some other blogs. Guest Blogging is generally done to gain better Positioning and Authority to oneself or authorship.
What is Guest Blogging?
Guest Blogging is blogging only, but the only difference is that instead of blogging on your own blog, you blog on others blog. In this, you choose a guest blog to post to those blogs which have the same niche of your blog. It is now considered as the most important part of the SEO (search engine optimization) and is well known in the field of internet marketing. Many new bloggers do guest blogging to get fame, more traffic, exposure, and backlinks.
Why do Guest Blogging?
The first question that comes to mind “does guest blogging works?” I would say it depends on the quality and content of the guest blog. But there are many new bloggers who guest blog to get:
- Better positioning for their authorship.
- To get more traffic to their blog.
- Quality backlinks to their website.
- And also to get a Well-known name in the Industry.
Go for Guest Blogging opportunities:
It is not difficult to find guest post opportunities, but the only thing to do is find similar niche blogs with better ranking and domain authority. Here is something to keep in mind for guest post opportunities:
- Keep in mind about the audience of the blog (must be same as your blog is targeting).
- Your Blog’s Niche should match their blog niche.
- The Blog’s admin must be active on social media so that your Guest post also gets socially shared on admins social pages.
- Must have a commenting system where you can also take part.
So to find the opportunities, there are many ways like search on the Google to find guest blogging sites. Or you can do the guest blogging on some of your friend’s blog (if your friends have) or find some good quality blog and send them a request for a guest post. Or there are many Blogging sites which allow guest posting.
Guest Blogging Sites:
There are tons of sites on the internet which have features of Guest Blogging. There is a list of websites which I would suggest like My Blog Guest and some other links for the same where you can find multiple sites for guest posting.
How to Guest Blog:
Guest blog as if you are writing for your own blog. Because every blogger wants to have a best of blog posts on their blog so give your best of writing for the guest post. Keep in mind about their niche and have good knowledge about their blog.
Use internal link:
Use the internal links from the admins blog so that he or she doesn’t take much time to approve your Post. It will also help the Guest Post to become more informative.
Use of Images:
Where ever applicable use appropriate and good quality images with Alt Tag. Either create some infographics own your own or download images from the websites which provide free images.
Provide fewer links or One Link (backlink) From your Site:
Try to provide only one link on the Guest post. Because Leaving Multiple backlinks to your site will make the Admin think of your post as a spam and your post will never be approved. More Importantly, ask the admin that you can share your link the in the post or not because many of the bloggers don’t allow links the post.
