Hi Family, I wonder if any of you like to share details I should discuss whit a guest writer for my website?

I am in contact with an American company relevant to my niche where I backlinks to as well in one of my articles. I just love what they do, and it is a service pertinent to my place. (not an affiliate kind of business).

I asked them that they would be interested in doing a little write up on my website, and they responded positively and asked where I like them to write about.

I am not sure yet but thought it is fair to try incorporating other authors and businesses to place some relevant content on my website. Still, I don't have any knowledge of experience to do this, though.

Can anybody tell me what the norm is? Do I give them a keyword? Do I ask for a minimum amount of words? How do I receive the document so I can upload it to site content or WordPress? Any other things I should think about?

I was also thinking to ask them if they would want to put a backlink to my site on theirs. Could I just ask this of is this inappropriate?


Feedback and experience would be appreciated.

Cheers Jude

Good afternoon Jude,

I have written some guest posts for websites. I was told the following: Never give the control of your website to another person.
You submit your post on a word document or PDF.
You include photos, links, etc.
Perhaps the website owner is so kind to include a little bio with your photo to add to the post. Often you can also put on your website link.
When everything is ready, you send it to the website owner. That is the moment where you are not the owner anymore of the material.
The website owner can change, add, or take away anything they think necessary.
In my case, I wrote for friends. They asked me how I liked the look of my post, and even if my material had been adapted to the layout of their website, I was all happy.
A couple of times I had unknown people contacting me. When I told them the rules, I never heard back from them.
By the way, it was Loes who told me how to do it. I hope this helps.

Greetings from the south of Spain,
