Guest Blogging

    I've hit the point in my SEO campaign that I've been told I need to do guest blogging. But On top of running my pet sitting Company FT, and working a FT insurance job I barely have time to write for my own blog! I've also had requests for people to guest blog on my website. Which benefits them but what about me. Any suggestions? I'm new to this guest blogger thing. It sounds VERY time consuming! I know you have to put time into your website but as a writer I know how time consuming writing articles is. I'm guessing there ins't a quick, cheap & easy solution is there?

    It might be best to outsource your SEO to a local company that can handle article creation and contacting other blog owners in your niche to persuade them to get involved in guest blogging

    Guest blogging is a means to increase traffic to your website by providing free content to other websites or blogs. The article you provide to other websites will contain a link that points back to your website. Guest blogging is also a way for you to get free original content for your blog.

    Guest Blogging is very important for SEO but you need to take in account the age of the domain your posting your blog on and Domain Authority.

    It boils down to how much money you can put in to run your blog. If you are ready to pay, there are people who can write stuff for you at reasonable amount. If you are getting guest blogger requests, you can scrutinize them to select the good ones to write for you, though this would cost you considerable amount of time.

    As for those people who are asking permission to guest blog on your site, you can gain advantage from that.

    In fact, a lot of webmasters that has established their website earning from adsense relies now on guest bloggers.

    In guest blogging, you provide a dofollow link back to your own blog in exchange for writing a related quality content to the webmaster you're asking permission with.

    So you'll have to review those asking permission to guest blog on your site first because you'd be sharing their page rank too or they're content may not really be that related to yours at all.

    Guest blogging is the process in which one can be able to post their article on someone's else blog.
    Guest blogging is also a good process of increasing visits to our web sites.

    I am basically in the same situation as you right now. I am looking around for someone to do guest posting for me and have found plenty of people who are willing to do it from $100-$500 a month for and more and are willing to make 20+ posts a month. My advice is to get on freelancer or post on forums like this to hire someone and just pass the work on to someone else who has good experience with it...

    Guest blogging is a best way to build high quality back-links as well as traffic because many blogs alexa rank is less than 1000.

    Yeah the time for approval is really long when you're guest blogging.

    Anyway, just to add some, you can simply buy an article instead of making your own again, then send that article to the website owner for approval. This way you'd just be waiting and can continue to your other work.

    I've never been able to figure out why a conscientious website owner would want to buy other people's writings and use them for article submission. Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but if I can't add my own unique contributions to the internet, why bother?

    My personal experience shows that it is not enough to focus on just domain age and domain authority. I would also suggest to take into account how active a blog is and how much traffic it gets.
    I have done a lot of guest blogging and I used to focus on PR, domain age and DA. Lately, I have realized that it is very important to post your guest posts on blogs that are active and have quality traffic. This is what increase traffic to your website/blog, not PR or DA or domain age. You may post your guest post on a blog with high PR, good DA and domain age, but if that blog is not very active and does not have much traffic, then it is pretty much useless. Unfortunately, higher PR or DA does not necessarily means higher traffic.
