Effective Guest Blogging Tips
A post for bloggers with effective guest blogging tips to experience its benefits and to perform well in the blogosphere.
Most of the website owners have started considering guest blogging very seriously as it is an effective marketing technique in the online world. Not only bloggers, even multinational companies have started guest blogging for some valid reasons.
If you are an influential blogger, I am sure that you have already started to guest post on other blogs of your same niche and tasting its benefits.
But if you are a newbie blogger, then you might ask “What is guest blogging?” and “Why should I write guest posts on other blogs?”
Yeah, both are good questions! But before answering to it, let me ask some questions because I always taking care and love to read other blogs 🙂
Add “Do you” for every question of mine!
- Want to increase credibility among your blog readers?
- Need to have more blog subscribers?
- Prefer the natural promotion for your blog?
- Desire to gain more visibility and traffic to your blog?
- Favor effective link building method?
- Wish to make friendship with fellow and prominent bloggers?
I know, all your answers for my questions are “YES” as you are a passionate blogger. Then do “Guest blogging” on active blogs to reap these benefits.
Now here is the answer for your very first question:
What is Guest Blogging?
“Guest blogging is a strategy of appearing on other same niche blogs with your fresh post as a guest.”
But be sure that your guest post should not ruin the status of the blog where you are appearing as a guest blogger. It means that you need to submit quality guest posts on other blogs and help those blog owners to get good traffic through your posts.
Hope you are now somewhat clear with “Guest blogging and its benefits”. Am I correct?
I always used to write high-quality guest posts for my blogging friends and influential bloggers. Also am feeling virtuous as this is my 13th guest post in my 5 months blogging career.
Ok, let me explain some common myths of guest blogging.
Guest Blogging Myths
Myth #1. Number of guest posts approved is important than its quality.
Some bloggers performing guest blogging just to build backlinks to their blog. They are showing interest to create more number of guest posts on various blogs and never mind about its quality. It is a bad practice and should be avoided by the bloggers.
Truth: Quality guest posts sounds greater than more no. of guest posts submitted just for link-building.
Myth #2: Blogs should have good PR to submit guest post on other blogs.
Newbie bloggers think that their blog should have high Pagerank to submit their guest post on other blogs. It is not true! My guest posts were accepted in PR4 and PR3 blogs and my blog’s page rank is 0. So, don’t hesitate to guest post on energetic blogs even if you have low or zero page rank.
Truth: Valuable guest posts which are helpful for the visitors are readily accepted on famous blogs.
Myth #3: Taking much effort for guest blogging is waste
I came across few bloggers with the statement “Why should I write long and quality posts just for backlinks and I have alternate ways for it”. No, it is really wrong and the bloggers should not expect instant results from guest blogging.
Truth: Guest blogging is only effective if it is focused to have long-term benefits. Write expert-quality content and make sure to scan it for any grammar mistakes. (here are some grammar checker tools you can use for this purpose). The more value you will add into your guest post, the more benefit you will get in long-term.
Tips To Get Your Guest Posts Accepted
- Try to impress the blog owners whom you are selected to submit your guest posts with polite approach and explain why you have selected their blog to submit your post.
- You should write guest post for related niches with good PR and high authority blogs, so sure to be thorough with their guidelines of guest posting.
- Follow your unique style in writing to stand out from other guest bloggers.
- It is really exciting to see your name on well-performing blogs right? So include a simple and gorgeous Author-bio for your guest post.
- Make efforts to engage the visitors from the beginning of your guest post by offering some fresh or unread data for them.
I am definitely saying that no other publicizing method can beat guest blogging. It is a honest white hat SEO technique which brings countless benefits to the bloggers. Also it is a good opportunity for the bloggers to reach wider minded audience and chance to establish a good relationship with the powerful bloggers.
Through the guest blogging experience, the bloggers can get their name known in the blogosphere.
