Guest posting is a very valued method of link building. Search engines put power to your links as they come from quality content in my earlier post i write about back links and how to get.
Guest posting is when you write an article for another site and put your back links at the end. You get a powerful back links with little effort. Other sites may also link to your article, so your link has the potential of becoming even more powerful. Guest posting is a good method of link development and optimizing for search engines.
How to start guest posting:
Write an article! Most blogs have a minimum of 150-250 words, but try to make your article as long as possible. This will increase the chances of it being linked to. You should also learn how to link bait before doing this. To summarize, link baiting is the process of convincing the user to link to your article without telling them outright, or in other words, “attracting links”. Link baiting is an important part of both guest posting and article writing.
The next step is to contact a popular blog that you want to make a post on the terms that you get to link to your websites at the end. Just make sure your website is related the the topic of the guest post, or the link won’t help you as much.
Some blogs will want you to guest post, others won’t. Some blogs will require you to contact them, others have a guest posting program to make the process much more smooth. Either way, there is almost always a way to get your guest post in there.
How effective is guest posting?
Major search engines consider blogs as good resources of information. Therefore, in general blogs are ranked high. When you get a link from a highly-ranked site, you can get your own site to be ranked higher. This means that guest posting is very effective.
In conclusion, it’s pretty easy to start guest posting, and usually, it’s worth your time. Guest posting is a very effective method of building links. All you have to do is write and article and submit it to the website you want a link from. You may have to edit the article a little bit, or your article may even be rejected altogether, but you can always submit your article to another website for approval. The main thing we must never forget is that writing guest post not only build back links but it also builds authority and let other bloggers and also your readers trust you.
