    Are you asking about you submitting guest posts to other website owners or requesting that people submit guest posts to your site?

    Guest posting to other people's sites can be a good way to get backlinks - IF you are able to write articles that contain valuable information for that site's readers.

    That also holds true for your own site. If you don't give them value they won't have an interest in viewing what you post.

    You're welcome.

    If you want to guest post to someone else's site I recommend that you put together a number of articles (15 or 20) and post them on your site. Then find related sites that accept guest posts, contact the owner, tell him you'd like to write a guest post for the site, and offer some of your post URLs for review.

    Hi Ahmed,

    If you can write unique and quality content and find blogs in the same categories as your blog, you will benefit. Be sure that owner of the blogs will be happy if you can write unique articles. They will be happy to share backlinks in your posts.

    You can send message to those blog owners "contact" pages that you want to send them unique and usefull posts within backlinks. Just try :)

    Guest post on high ranking sites, which allow you to register and post your content. Include your site/channel link in those posts. Then take the published link and copy and paste it back to your youtube channel or blog/site. This will give you good link juice and will naturally rank your site. But make sure you offer a good content because if not, the AI nowadays is smart enough to ban you if you produce low value content. You can use good quality PLR-s too, if you don't have your own.

    Guest posting is a no-follow backlink. But you can get a lot of visitors from there.

    Yet Google considers the guest post as a no-follow link but you can get a lot of traffic there. Guest post is part of content marketing strategy also.

    I do believe in the guest posting power and have seen multiple examples of how it has helped to increase traffic. For instance, Buffer used it to grow traffic from 0 to 100,000 in 9 months only.
    Basically, guest posting has a variety of perks that in the end help you reach more traffic.
    If you are a new website owner and need to request posting on a third-party site, I suggest you partner with the guest posting service.

    Of course, guest posting is an ideal way to bring traffic to your website or squeeze page. However, if you are a new website owner seeking to request postings to add to your website, or better said, add content, guest posting is not the thing for you. Why?

    A guest post:

    A guest post is an article you place on another person’s website to tap into a targeted or specific audience and bring them back to your website or squeeze page via a link inserted in or at the bottom of the article.


    Nobody will be interested in doing a guest post on a new website because it will not be possible for them to get traffic back to their own website in return. You will need to go to Upwork.com and get writers who will write articles for you for a set fee. Never use writers from Fiverr.com, or you will be sorry. I hope this helps.

    Its impossible to find websites that are real guest posts. 100% of the guest posts site sold on fiverr are PBN blogs.

    Of course, Guest posting is a proven way of getting backlinks and generating SEO value. But it's not really that much fruitful if you choose low-quality sites for guest posting. You should contact webmasters which publish articles in the same niche and have good DA and traffic.

    Sure, it's a good way to get some traffic to your website, but you need to find sites with a lot of unique visitors with clear understanding that this is the place where you can find your targeting audience.

    Yes, guest posting is indeed useful, particularly if you can find do follow link insertion opportunities. I should also add that before I publish a guest post, I check to see the DR of that particular site to see whether it is worth posting at all. Be on the look out for good guest posting opportunities and disregard those that aren't worthwhile. Good luck :)

    Are you an expert in the field you would be writing about? Or are you just copying and/or rewriting someone else's content? Do you write well? Will your content add value to the website where you are guest posting? If not, don't do it. If we are not actually adding value to the internet and its users, why bother?

    yes, guest posts can valuable for backlinks. However, good sites (with high domain authority) never lets you post for free and the prices can vary by a lot.
