Guest Blogging the Right Way

Guest blogging is a great way to drive traffic to your website and blog. It’s also a great way to build authority within your niche. In addition it is a way to earn links back to your website from authoritative and relevant websites, which will help to increase your page rank. But, for guest blogging to work it has to be strategic.

Blog Only on Relevant Blogs

It’s important to only carry out guest blogging on relevant blogs that your audience would read. You are trying to attract a very specific audience and if a particular blog doesn’t market to your audience you’re just wasting your time and effort. You can do a search for blogs that accept guest posts, or if you read blogs that are within your area of expertise you can simply ask them if they accept guest posts. Do not pay for placing a guest blog post.

Keep Track of Your Efforts

It’s important to keep track of all your guest blogging efforts. You want to know when the blog was published, the URL of the blog, and other relevant information so that you can know whether or not blogging there is working for you. As they say, nothing is ever done without finishing the paperwork, and it couldn’t be more true for guest blogging. If you’re not getting results, it’s time to move on.

Guest Blogging the Right WayPromote Your Guest Blogging Posts

Just like you promote your blog posts on your own website, it’s imperative that you also promote any guest blog posts that are published. Not only will the publisher appreciate it, but your audience will too. Without promotion, blog posts don’t go very far. You should be proud to promote every piece of content that you write to your audience.

Write Quality Blog Posts

Do your research into what makes a great blog post. You want to include a relevant image, as well as the right keywords for your audience and the subject matter. You want to also make sure that the blog post has enough white space with a good use of bullets and lists. Spend some time editing your blog posts to make them truly excellent.

Develop an Effective Author’s Bio Plus a Professional Head-shot

Each blog you guest post on will have different rules, but all of them will enable you to include an author’s bio and a head-shot. Ensure that your author’s bio is keyword rich so that it attracts and speaks to your audience as well as directs them to the information on your own website that you want them to see. Your head-shot should be professional and representative of your image and your niche.

Finding places to guest blog, as well as ensuring that your posts are quality, then promoting them as much as you’d promote anything else you write, will go far in helping you succeed with your guest blogging strategy.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.
