How much do you charge when you get a request for buying links or sponsored content for your blog?

Not applicable, none! Neither, nor.

You don't. You just ignore them.

Thanks, Phil. I appreciate the info.

Hi - I wouldn't recommend that you do this.

I suspect you have been approached by an agency who will have been hired by a client to obtain backlinks.

They will have sent hundreds, if not thousands of emails to websites hoping somebody responds.

You are unlikely to receive a high quality post.

And Google frowns on paid guest posts, it can harm your site.

Diane that is not precisely correct. I read that it states Google "is not against paid-for content." They are against the "manipulating of the ranking using sponsored content." In other words, gaming the system is what Google penalizes those sites for doing that kind of behavior. Google requires that you disclose that it's a paid post and that all links must be a nofollow and no thin content. Google explains if you have high authority with high-quality content and traffic and a good brand with a good ranking, it is okay for brands to charge for sponsored posts or guest posts. As long as they follow the rules. Google hates the unnatural links or outbound links that game the system for their PageRank. That's clear. They don't encourage using it all the time to get the rank juice. They will get penalized for that.

Well, perhaps I could have been more clear in my answer!

Joseph specifically mentioned it was a request for the purpose of buying links.

So, they were expecting to receive a "follow" link.

I suspect if he responded by saying he would be happy to accept a guest post but marked as "no follow" he wouldn't hear from them again!

Ok now thats clear. Got you, cheers!

Thanks Diane. Much appreciated.

Thanks, Brenda.

I agree with Brenda and the other comments below.

Thanks, Mike

As your affiliate disclosure states,

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a company sponsors a post and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.


So if you want sponsored content and someone paid for it, you must disclose it in the post. I have yet to get to that point for paid sponsorship content but for a guest post, you can charge whatever is suitable.

From what I see from other websites, they charge $250 up to $1,200 USD per sponsored or guest article posts, depending on the brand and the content.

Thanks, Brenda

You are welcome.

It depends on your Domain Rating and the Traffic you get (also where your traffic comes from).

I did it a few times, but honestly, you'll barely get high-quality content.. I did it 2-3 times only, and I was never completely happy with the articles (only 1 article was really in-depth and great)...

Usually, you'll get better articles when allowing them to write for free.

But for instance, for a DR ca. 20-30 and traffic around 10k, you could get 50-$100 per guest post.

Thanks so much. Appreciate the info.

I am not sure that you want to do this, Joseph! I think that Google might frown on it according to some things I have read. That being said, I will be looking at the answers you get, since I might be mistaken!

Jeff

Thanks, Jeff. Much appreciated.

You're very welcome, Joseph!

I agree Jeff! Great response.

Thank you, Abie! 🐐

Want to move a site from SiteGround to WA. How do I do it? Thanks, Joseph

There are two terms we use here. Domain name and website.
Domain name is the URL only and it can be transferred or the DNS can be pointed to the WA servers.
ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

If you have a website with content already on it, it is important to back up it at your current hosting company and then contact site support to ensure the transfer goes smoothly.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

We see that you are a Paid Premium member which means that WA includes the hosting for 10 websites...

You are welcome.

You may transfer or point to WA servers (if transferring domain has to end in .com, .net or .org.

To update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

These settings will be updated within your domain registrar (where you purchased your domain) after the transfer has taken place. To transfer your domain here you need login current registrar and fetch the EPP code, there's a one year charge of $15, privacy included. One year more will get added to your domain.

Also it has to have passed the grace period of 60 days.
