Guest Blogging Is Great If Not Abused

  1. 1. Guest Blogging Is Great If Not AbusedWhat Is Guest Blogging?Ever since the search engines came out people have been trying to figure out a way to play thesystem. They have used just about every trick and tip out there to build links to their sites. Thisis all done with one goal in mind. Get more website traffic to their blog. And the concept ofdoing a guest blog post for someone isn’t new. But in recent months since Panda and Penguinit has come to the forefront.In order to continue I thought I would define guest blogging to you. Simply put when you haveanother person write a blog post for your blog that is a guest blog. Pretty easy right. In anothercontext when you write a post for someone elses site your providing my site a guest blog post.For example. Many people don’t know this but I am member of a blogging community. Weread each others content. Provide social bookmarking and social sharing solutions to eachother. And most importantly we comment on each others blogs. Now this is a goodarrangement because I don’t have to search for new sites to comment on all the time.During some restructoring of the community I volunteered to help out. And as a results I hadthe opportunity to do a guest blog post on the groups main site. (You can read it here join thegroup too. If you can’t figure out how him me up and I’ll get you signed up)When writing the definition of guest blogging you have to cover the benefits of following thisprocess as well. First lets say that your site really isn’t that popular right now. So you need toget your name out there. And through the power of networking you find that your new bloggingbuddy will let you post some content on his popular site. Thus you will get some of his/herlisteners reading your content. Perhaps they come over to your site and see what your allabout.The second benefit is the backlink that you will receive to your website. This will help increaseyour rankings. As well as increase the authority Google awards your site over the long run.Where Can You Find Guest Bloggers?Here is a great list of places you can try to post courtesy of the folks at Webuildlink.com.Internet Marketing & SEOURL Age Alexa ILsearchenginepeople.com 6 Oct 13 1999 13729 1 / 14

Which is a good thing because it keeps peoplehonest well to some extent anyway.So in the interest of clarity let me cover a couple things that you should and should not do whenit comes to writing guest blog posts for other people.Number 1) Don’t under any circumstances try to give someone a spun article. If you didn’twrite it originally for their blog don’t provide it. Smart people who are posting guest posts ontheir site will check for duplicate content. Its not worth the loss to your reputation.Number 2) Don’t under any circumstances repost a post that you have given someone. Don’trepost it in article directories don’t repost it on your site. Just don’t repost it. Again this goesback to duplicate content and reputation management. People take this seriously folks.Number 3) Do ensure that you promote your work on social networks. Just because its not yoursite doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be giving it love. Besides its really helping your out as well.Number 4) Always offer to post something for someone who has allowed you to post. It builds agreat relationship and can result in some combined projects.A Beginner’s Guide To Guest BloggingHere is a great infographic on the subject with some more added tips. 12 / 14
