In my view, guest posting is the best link building method for SEO. That is the main reason you should participate the guest posting.
What is Guest Posting?
We can simply define guest posting as submitting your article to another blog. Before submitting your article you should care about few things.
What You Should Care Before Submit An Article?
1.Selecting a good blog for submit your article
i.Does the blog allow guest posting?
Some blogs don’t allow guest posting for several reasons. So first check it. If allow guest posting, most times that will be shown in blog navigation bar. (Write for us or Guest posting)
ii.Selected blog have high Page Rank (PR)
My recommendation is to select a blog with at least page rank 3 or higher. It is important for the quality of your backlink.
iii.Selected blog should allow put two do follow backlinks
Most blogs allow you to put two do follow backlinks in “Author Signature” at bottom of the article. It’s enough, but again checks that is do follow. Because do follow backlinks are more valuable than no follow backlinks.
iv.Check the Alexa Rank
Backlinks are important for SEO. But also you want some traffic via guest posting. So you should know selected blog have some good traffic. See Alexa rank of selected blog to know that. Alexa rank depends on few things. But main thing is traffic. Select a blog < 100000 (Alexa Rank)
v.Selected blog content should be related to your blog content
This is also very important. If you are running “online games blog”, don’t select “technology blog”.
2.How to write guest post?
i.Writing a high quality guest post
Few bloggers say that writing any guest post doesn’t matter because that is not your blog. This is totally wrong. Why? Think like this. You write a high quality unique article as quest post, after the reader who read your guest post defiantly comes to your blog because he/she likes your content. So he/she knows your blog also have good content. But if you write useless article sometimes it will be ignored by blog owner. If it is allowed, a reader who don’t like your content he/she never click your backlink
ii.Read the terms and condition of the selected blog to create guest post
Every blog have their own terms and conditions for guest posting. Read it carefully and write a guest post like that, If not your post will be ignored.
It is good to write a guest post for every 8-12 posts by you in your blog.
