Every day I get a ton of emails from people who are wanting to guest post for this blog, but it’s come to the point where it’s simply too much to handle. Another problem with all of the guest blogging requests is that many of these are from link builders and seo spammers trying to build up links to their site.
In short, it simply takes up way too much time and is extremely annoying to get such requests when they are just trying to take advantage of your blog space.
While I am not currently accepting any new guest blog posts on BloggingTips.com, today I wanted to share with you a very cool and exciting way for people to find blogs that are more than happy to post guest blog content to their site.
Introducing PostRunner, a simple and effective way to post your original content to wordpress blogs that are related to your content.
The first thing you will need to do is sign up for an account. Pricing ranges from $10 to $400 per month depending on how many different sites you want to promote through the network.
Before we jump into how PostRunner works, let’s first cover what exactly is done through their site. PostRunner has created a platform that allows wordpress users to the ability to submit their sites to the PostRunner directory, which they manually approve each site for. Once a site is listed in their directory, writers can then find their site and submit original content to their site. You can also use PostRunner to build content for your own site by getting it listed on their network.
Before you will see a screenshot with notes on each feature that you can sort based on the site you want to submit content to.
The most important notes are the URL (blurred area), PageRank, Required Word Count and what percentage of posts from the site are from guest writers on the PostRunner network. You can also search for sites based on category and “search phrase”.
Once you find a web site that you would like to submit content to, all you need to do is click on it, then you will be sent to a form like the one below. From here you can create your original article and link to your site from within the content. Depending on the site you are writing for they may have specific article and linking requests.
Above the title area you will see a recap of the URL you are submitting the article to, along with the minimum word count and how many links you can include within the article.
Once you are done with the article you can click the SUBMIT button and they article will be sent to the site owner after approving your article for final review (below). PostRunner will show you the final version of your article, along with the URL you want to link back to, your anchor text and that your link is approved for you to promote.
The whole process is amazing easy to follow and it’s an amazing system to use.
Once your high quality articles are submit to web sites and blogs, you can then visit your dashboard to see the status of your article on other sites. Below you will see an example of how your dashboard might look after submitting articles from your site.
You will be able to see the title of your posts, the date you sent the article, if it’s currently LIVE or not, the rating of your article (from site owner) and the anchor texts that are live on the site from your article submission.
As mentioned earlier, the process of getting a ton of emails every day for guest posts is quite overwhelming… and I’m not the only one this is happening to. If you are currently mailing and contacting as many sites as you can to submit blog content to their sites, then PostRunner would be an excellent solution for you, as all of the sites in the network are looking for guest bloggers and original content.
There are currently over 800 blogs listed in the network and most of them are individually owned and not setup like other link building networks you may have seen in the past. Before submitting your content to a site, I would recommend making sure the site is relevant to the content you are linking back to and writing about, and it would also be worthwhile for you to check the backlinks going to any sites you submit to as well.
PostRunner is the service, while bloggers are the ones making up the majority of the network. It’s an extremely easy and effective service to use and monthly plans start as low as $10 each, but I recommend going with the MULTI Website Promotion plan at $30 a month, as it will allow you to promote more than just one site.
