As bloggers and online marketers, we are always looking for new and exciting blogs that we can gain backlinks on. One of the best ways to do this is through the use of guest blogging services. You can do all of your guest blogging on your own or you can have it outsourced.
The reason why guest blogging is so effective is simply because it works so well and takes a lot of time to put together. It’s easy to buy links and ad placements, but they are only doing so much for you. When you create original content and post it on other high authority blogs, you can getting true readership and people who will likely click on your links and end up on your site.
The next issue with guest blogging is that it can take a while to write the content, then find relevant blogs to post on, then wait for their reply and seeing if they will actually accept your post. There are several ways to speed up the process and find new sites that you can start blogging on. A few of these recommendations are below.
Find a Guest Blogging List
There are a ton of resources out there for guest blogging, but finding an updated list and one that works for you can be hard. Blogging.org recently posted a list of some of the top marketing and blogging sites that are currently looking for guest bloggers and new content. Remember, only provide original content and quality stuff when contacting these sites for a post submission. There is way too much crap floating around lately!
Software Still is Our Friend
There are many programs out there that do content spinning and promise to find quality blogging sites for you to publish too, but most of them are garbage. No self respecting blog is going to post spun content or something that doesn’t make any sense.
SheerSEO has created a line of software programs and one of the focuses on the concept of finding quality blogs for you to submit content to. As mentioned, one of the biggest problems is finding blogs out there that are looking for posts and not already saturated with requests.
To understand how the blog review requests software works, be sure to visit their site for full details. In short, you would run a search for blogs using a specific keyword of your choice, then you would be able to pull a report on relevant blogs along with their full stats with Alexa and PageRank. You can then pick and choose which sites you would like to contact for your guest blogging efforts.
Guest Blogging Networks and Forums
Staying active in guest blogging networks and forums is always going to be one of the best ways to interact and talk with blog owners. Since guest blogging is quickly becoming more saturated, it won’t surprise me if we soon see guest blog posts be limited only to well known bloggers and screened writers. Guest blogging networks and content generation sites like ContentBlvd, Guest Blog Genius and Blogging.org are all excellent sites for connecting writers with bloggers.
