Guest Posting Processes?

    Hey Guys,
    SEMrush
    So I need to set up a manual outreach for guest posting. What would that look like with VA's and what not.

    Would I use scrape box to find potential sites then use a VA for out reach? What would I offer in exchange for a guest post?

    I'm looking for what processes have worked for you guys and maybe potential pitfalls I can avoid.

    Any info is much appreciated.

    Backlinko has a very comprehensive article on it. They also include the search criteria variations. Scrapebox is really good for it too. That use is probably one of it's best remaining purposes.

    However, if you dig around enough, you'll also find listings that people have put together that number into the thousands of blogs.

    That's the easy part. The outreach is cumbersome and the prices for sponsored posts vary wildly. The majority want money, which is often over $100 per post.

    Here's one that I *just* got in the email. Price: $6k per article - $7.5k for them to write it.

    Cool thank you for the info! I'll go dig in backlinko.

    Interesting that I never thought to just google search a list of blogs. Sorry for the LMGTFY moment. The internet is truly amazing haha.

    Article Marketing works better than Guest Posting. Don't run your Business with this illusion created after Sundar Pichai became CEO of Google.

    Before you reach out to the websites, you need to decide which kind of guest post will you prefer. Is it niche relevant guest posting or authority guest posting?

    If you choose niche relevant guest posting, you will need manual outreach service like you mentioned in your post. And hiring a VA will be suitable for this job. However if you are looking for authority guest posting, you will need to have contact with the editors of those authority sites. Merely manual outreach service is not enough to get your website featured in authority websites through guest posting.

    One method I use is to search Google using specific keywords to find a list of sites that offer guest posting opportunities. You can use Scrapebox or similar software to do this. Here is my list:

    "Add Articles”
    "Add Content”
    "Become a Contributor”
    "Become a Guest Blogger”
    "Become an Author”
    "Bloggers Wanted”
    "Blogs Accepting Guest Posts”
    "Blogs that Accept Guest Blogging”
    "Contribute”
    "Guest Blogging Spot”
    "Guest Contributor”
    "Guest post by”
    "Guest Post Guidelines”
    "Guest Post”
    "Places I Guest Posted”
    "Publish Your News”
    "Submit a Guest Post”
    "Submit an Article”
    "Submit News”
    "Submit Post”
    "Submit Tutorial”
    "Suggest a Post”
    "This is a guest article”
    "Want to Write for”
    "writers wanted"
    “Add Guest Post”
    “Become a Contributor”
    “Become a Guest Writer”
    “Blogs that Accept Guest Bloggers”
    “Blogs that Accept Guest Posts”
    “Community News”
    “Contribute to our Site”
    “Group Writing Project”
    “Guest Bloggers Wanted”
    “Guest Bloggers Wanted”
    “Guest Posts Roundup”
    “My Guest Posts”
    “Now Accepting Guest Posts”
    “Submission Guidelines”
    “Submit a Guest Article”
    “Submit Article”
    “Submit Blog Post”
    “Submit Guest Post”
    “Submit News”
    “Suggest a Guest Post”
    “The following guest post”
    “This guest post is from”
    “This guest post was written”
    “Write for Us”
    inurl:guest-post-guidelines
    inurl:guest-posts
    inurl:write-for-us
    inurl:profiles/blog/new
    "submit guest post”
    “accepting guest posts”
    “contribute to our site”
    “contributor guidelines”
    “guest bloggers wanted”
    “guest post courtesy of”
    “guest post opportunities”
    “write for us”
    accepting guest posts
    become a guest blogger
    become guest blogger
    guest blogger wanted
    intitle:"guest blogging opportunity"
    intitle:"submit blog post"
    intitle:"submit guest post"
    intitle:"write for me"
    intitle:"write for us"
    inurl:"write for me"
    inurl:"write for us"
    inurl:category/guest
    inurl:guest-blogger
    inurl:guest-post
    inurl:guest-posts
    inurl:guest*author
    inurl:guest*blogger
    inurl:guest*post
    inurl:guest*posts
    inurl:tag/guest
    submit a guest post
    submit guest post
    submit your guest post
    submit your own guest post

    To make this relevant to your niche i would add "keyword" and then each of the above search terms.

    Hope that helps

    What is the guarantee that the guest post / blog post will remain on that particular site for a long time ? We purchase such outreach services with good amount of money and if the website manager removes those posts then what should we do in this case ?

    If the webmaster removes your post after getting paid, that is very unethical from business point of view. Yes these kind of situations do occur, although I haven't faced such issues while doing blogger outreach.

    To avoid such things to happen, you should do a contract (written) with the webmaster which will guarantee your guest post will be there for certain period of time. If the webmaster breaks the contract, you can get the refund via PayPal. However when you have a strong networking circles, these kind of things happen very rarely.

    This won't really help you if the webmaster removes the links after 90 days. To be honest, there is absolutely no guarantee with link buying wether they will stick. You are almost entirely going by trust. Even if you have a contract, they will be very difficult to enforce, there will be problems with jurisdictions if you try and, a lot of the time, the webmaster selling you the link, might not have the right to sell it, so the contract is worthless.

    These thigns, in my opinion, are built on trust and experience - once you get to know a website over a period of time, and see your links stick, you can continue to do business with them.

    This is also why I would recommend people to go by third-party resellers to build your links and do the guest outreach. That way, it is the RESELLER who is liable for any loss of links, and you can always claim your moneyback from a middle-man (who will personally guarantee the link out of his/her own pocket) rather than relying on teh webmaster who probably has many other monetization/business strategies going on.

    for me the only working process was to contact webmasters in order to place my content to their website.
