Top 5 Tips On Guest Blogging In 2013

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by VisionzZolution, Jan 22, 2013.

    Being a successful guest blogger is no easy feat. You have to keep up with the reputation of the blog that you are working for and must capture the attention of their audience, at the same time attracting new ones. Alternatively, you can use guest blogging as a method for getting more hits on your own page. Here are some useful tips that you can use for guest blogging this 2013:

    Know your content

    Providing content with substance and quality is crucial. You must provide something fresh yet informative to the blog that your guest writing for. It is important that you catch the attention of the readers. If you end up providing something that‘s not up to par with the quality of the blog, this may result in getting a bad reputation from readers. Remember that the audience always likes it when something refreshing is served to their minds.
    Your content should also be original and 100% new and unpublished. The owners of the blog will request you to create something that is specifically tailored for their page. Originality is important if you’d like to have a long-term partnership with their blog.

    Benefiting from Search Engine Optimization

    This technique is used in order to gain viewers from searching on websites such as Google or Yahoo. This is a long-term solution when in comes to attracting audiences, as every time someone searches for a certain keyword, your post will always appear in the search results, thus better chances in getting more clicks. You need to know the common keywords that people search for regarding the topic that you’re writing for in order to take advantage of SEO.


    Find the correct blog to guest post for

    The blog that you’re going to pick should be something that has similarly themed posts such as yours. When you contact them, make sure that you’re straight to the point and tell them the things that you can offer for their blog. You can strike a deal and attract audiences to each other’s pages by doing guest blog posts.
    You have to know whom you’re posting for. Transparency is also the key when posting. You must be unbiased and don’t go against any advocacy that the blog you’re writing for is standing for. Conflicting opinions might result in bad blood between you and the main blogger.

    Responding to comments

    Once you’ve created your guest post, expect a few commenters here and there. Make it a point to respond to most of them, if not all, regardless of positivity or negativity of the content of the comment. This will also help in attracting people into visiting your own blog. Reaching out to readers is one of the key techniques in gaining more readers.

    Promote your post

    Promoting your post after publishing is very important. If the main blogger takes notice of the fact that the traffic for your post is relatively high, there is a high chance for them to ask you to post again, or maybe promote your blog further. Social networking sites can be a great place to promote your post.

    There is no hard & fast rule for guest blogging.

    1. It is not mandatory that you always have to ask a person who deals with same business. Since most of the cases it was seen that they don't feel good to highlight competitors through their guest writing.
    Therefore rather finding some niche area, you can focus on multipurpose website that deals with various categories.

    2. Before to make guest post I only make sure about two things, those are Page rank and traffic flow to the site.

    3. If you have strong writing skills then you can write by your own or else you can outsource the job, ultimately Google only decide if the writing is worth for you

    It all depends on your niche! If its just a normal niche keep it from 500-600 words. If it's more technical and really need good guide can exceed more than 1000 words...

    I want to add a point which i believe is missing in this post, correct me if i am wrong :). Well 1st nice post with healthy wealthy information about guest blogging i must appreciate your effort of sharing your views with all of us otherwise people don't have time to do this kind of posts that benefits others.

    Coming back to the topic, my point of view is that "SOCIAL MEDIA" is most important factor now a days for bloggers for getting maximum advantage in term of long term relations and good traffic which has been neglected in this post. If we analyze the behavior of internet users then we got 1 thing very clear that social media sites you can also say social networking sites like facebook, linkedin, twitter, SU,Digg etc have major impact. So if you are guest blogger and want maximum exposure then you never neglect the power of social media, that's all from my side if anyone want to add something i will be very happy to hear.

    Just Wanted to Add Few Points Here.
    IF you are Guest Posting on a BLOG,just the PR alone doesnt Matter
    Check PA/DA( Page Authority / Domain Authority) of the Blog,very crucial,

    I would go for a PR1 Blog with PA/DA of 25/25 rather than a PR6 of PA/DA 10/15

    You can Check PA/DA of each BLOG by installing the MOZBAR from SEOMOZ. A Must for any Web Marketeer
    Hope this Helps
