Guest Blogging is the posting of a blog post to some other blogs. Guest posting is generally done to gain better Positioning and Authority for oneself or authorship. Many webmasters and bloggers use the power of guest submission to make good links and get more exposure on the internet.

What is Guest Blogging?

Guest posting is a kind of blogging only, but the only difference is that instead of blogging on your own blog, You publish on others’ blogs. In this, you choose a guest blog to post to those blogs which have the same niche as your blog. It is now considered the most important part of SEO (search engine optimization) and is well-known in the field of internet marketing. Many new bloggers do guest posts to get fame, more traffic, exposure, and backlinks.

Why you should do Guest Posting?

The first question that comes to my mind “does guest blogging work?” I would say it depends on the quality and content of the guest post. But there are many new bloggers who do the guest submission to get:

  1. Better positioning for their authorship.
  2. To get more traffic to their blog.
  3. Quality backlinks to their website.
  4. 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 a better ranking and domain authority. Here is something to keep in mind for guest blogging opportunities:

  1. Keep in mind the audience of the blog (must be the same as your blog is targeting).
  2. Your Blog’s Niche should match their blog niche.
  3. The Blog’s admin must be active on social media so that your Guest post also gets socially shared on admins’ social pages.
  4. Must have a commenting system where you can also take part.

So to find the opportunities, there are many ways, to search on Google to find guest submission sites. Or you can do it on some of your friend’s blogs (if your friends have a blog) or find some good quality blogs and send them a request for a guest post. Or there are many Blogging sites that allow guest posting.

Guest Blogging Sites:

There are tons of sites on the internet that have features for guest submission. There is a list of websites that I would suggest to you. And some other links to the same where you can find multiple sites for guest posting.

How to Guest Blog?

Write Guest blogs as if you are writing for your own blog. Because every blogger wants to have the best blog posts on their blog so give your best writing for the guest post. Keep in mind their niche and have good knowledge about their blog.

1. Use the internal link:

Use the internal links from the admin’s 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.

2. Use of Images:

Where ever applicable use appropriate and good-quality images with Alt Tag. Either create some infographics on your own or download images from the websites which provide free images.

3. 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 spam and your post will never be approved. More importantly, ask the admin that can you share your link in the post or not because many of the bloggers don’t allow links in the post.

4. Read their Terms and condition:

Every blogger has his or her own terms or laws for submissions of Guest posting. So Before posting or writing any post as a guest blogger don’t forget to read their terms and privacy policy pages for the submission. Because it will only be a waste of time and effort if your post doesn’t match their criteria.

Benefits of Guest Blogging:

There are many advantages of Guest Blogging;

Guest Bio Perfection:

Guest bio is the most important thing in the Guest posting because you wrote a huge article just to get a good quality link, so the author bio must be perfect. Write something unique about yourself, do not copy the same Bio from your own blog.

  • Provide a Site Link with Anchor Tag in your author Bio so that you could get a link and more traffic to your blog and the readers can also reach you.
  • If you want to get more social likes, then provide those social links where people can follow you.

  1. Every business with a blog has similar goals: engage readers, get more targeted traffic and build authority. You probably know that the best way to achieve these goals is to create high-quality content on topics that your audience cares about. It’s not always easy, however, to consistently create great blog posts yourself. One solution to this dilemma is to publish guest posts.

  15. Hi,

    It’s neat, because guest posting is going back to the old school approach of building relationships, forming bonds and helping both parties in the process. There is nothing wrong with building links as a natural by-product of adding value and forming connections. Smart post here.

    But people were making huge mistake by taking it just for the sake of link building, which is completely wrong, It reduce the quality of guest posts.

    So, Do your homework. Reach as big as crowd as possible. And of course, make sure the crowd wants to know what you have to say because smart guest bloggers hyper target their audience with a strategic guest blogging strategy.

    I used to hit the heavies like problogger.net for a tremendous networking opportunity, and also, to build bonds with Darren Rowse and his co-bloggers at PB. It sure hasn’t hurt me in the social proof department either, as I’ve received some nice pop for being published on problogger 3 times.

    All techniques make sense here. Put in the legwork to find the right blog to build an intelligennt, effective approach to guest posting. Think about the specific audience you wish to reach before bothering to write a guest post.

    Thanks for sharing the awesome tips.
