Guest Post Anyone?

Last Update: September 11, 2017

Hi there,

Recently I had the pleasure of connecting with Merry, a fellow WA member @MsMerry

We exchanged a few messages and got talking about the idea of doing a guest post on each others blogs. At first we thought it would be interesting to do an 'interview style' post, but then opted to pick a topic each and just go for it.

Here's the results of our efforts :-)

My article is entitled MidLife Crisis or MidLife Success and appears on Merry's site Girl Boss Marketing Co: https://girlbossmarketingco.co...

  1. Merry wrote an article entitled I have a Dream and I have Angels which appears on my site Paid Blog Jobs: http://paidblogjobs.com/motiva...

FYI: I decided to use the keyword 'motivational short stories about life' as a keyword in the title and introduction of the post and after one day, it is already being ranked in Yahoo.

Guest Posting with Merry was a great experience and a wonderful way to leverage our common purpose here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Guest posting is a technique worth mastering: It not only increases your exposure online, drives traffic back to your own website, it can also position you as an authority in your chosen niche. Plus it can be a lot of fun :-)

Interested? My website http://paidblogjobs.com still needs a bit of love, so if you are interested in the idea of guest posting, particularly about any of the 101 sites listed on my homepage please get in touch, I'd love to repeat the process again.

What do you reckon?

Cheers, Karen

I doubt that you're a pleb by any stretch Lyn! As you start to build out the content on your website, you'll probably see opportunities to guest post or invite others to guest post on yours. All the best, cheers, Karen

Good Morning Karen,

My before last post is Guest Writers-the Story.
Yesterday Valerie Joy had a post Beware of Rules about Guest Blogging.
Perhaps you care to have a look. I will save your post as it has a lot of good information. Personally, I am all for it.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

Thanks I'll definitely check that out :-)

Hi again, I've read Valerie's post now and I totally agree with what she has written. A guest post is not about adding in affiliate links from the guest post author, but a link back to their own website is perfectly fine and to be expected.(IMHO) :-)

ps. my article is not about affiliate marketing at all, and Merry's touches on it only lightly.

Karen, I'm bookmarking your post as I can't check out your website now (getting ready for my 'day' job). But I shall definitely have a look.
I'm part of a recently formed group of WA members who want to guest write for each other, but some have concerns as to whether this may have a negative impact on the ranking of our websites.
There's also the concern that, of crediting a guest writer to your website, you may end up loosing revenue by encouraging visitors to use somebody else's website.
How do you feel about all these issues?

Giulia

Hi Giulia, I believe these are all very valid points and it was certainly something we considered when we talked about doing this. However, the paidblogjobs.com site I'm going to use for any guest posts is not my main WA bootcamp site, and I think it would work if the respective niches of both sites are complementary. With any guest posting I guess there's a risk, but the benefits of increased exposure and driving traffic probably outweigh this if done right. My random thoughts only! Cheers, Karen

This is what I was talking about when I blogged about this idea several months ago.

Great job, both of you!

You probably planted the seed - but we adopted it as our own idea LOL

Thanks, Mickey and yes, you probably did plant that seed. It's funny how when you have an idea someone else usually has the same one, and then it is born. :)

So we did!! LoL! I love how we are both ranking very high in yahoo and google with our respective guest posts!! It is certainly an experience to learn from doing this.

I don't know if this is the case, but my original blog is/was: But it also shows that great minds think alike.

Yes! Going to have a look at your post, Mickey. I truly always did find that if you had an idea to do something, chances were someone else had it too. And yes, great minds do think alike :)

Yes it was an interesting process - especially coming up with topics that complemented each other's websites. But definitely worth it.
