WAIT A SECOND, Peej.... What is a Guest Post ?

Guest posting or guest blogging is simply writing an article to post on another website.

Well, this is it in it's most simplistic terms.

Guest posts are fantastic for SEO in that you can develop some really crucial backlinks to your website. Additionally, if you can gain a guest post slot on a blog where the website owner has developed a large following - all those eyeballs will be reading your material and see your signature block at the bottom of the article as the author.

With some blogs, the owner will allow you to create a WordPress account (as a "contributor" or "guest author") and you will be able to provide your website link in addition to social network links!

Typically, within the body of the submitted article you will be allowed an "anchor text" backlink which can include your website URL, your website's primary keywords, a "naked" link or secondary keywords. Heck, you can even do these for long-tail keywords.

So for folks wanting to guest post on my site do I need a contract or something? I know it sounds silly But Im curious.

I read your rules and that sounds fabulous.

I am new at allowing guest posts, but I have been contacted by a reputable company that is within my niche window and I want to make sure I get the proper exposure in return if possible. Next steps?

Hey PJ! This training was very helpful but I have a question. Should we guest post on blogs in our niche or outside our niche with some sort of relation to our niche? or are we going completely out of our niche?

Thanks,
Marlinda

I think PJ is saying the same niche, as you want followers to you as well as the original blog.

Good reading. I have the opposite problem, I was ONLY doing guest blogs an freelance articles and never had my own website before. Now I want to create some content of my own before going back to the people who I have been providing content to.

Hi PJ,
Great information as usual. I want to approach some people that have a huge following, and ask them if they would like to do a guest blog for me. How do I do that technically on my end, authorizations, etc., as well as the best way to approach them asking for a guest blog?

Thanks!
-Kathy

Hi Kathy,

I like to send a nice personalized email (after checking their website to see if they have Guest Posting guidelines). I also include about three links to former places that I have guest posted on in the past. If you don't have any yet, just use your own blog for now. Basically, just ASK for a guest post. It's a win-win thing because you are providing unique content for their readers and helping their website.

Cheers,
pj

Thank you so much - so helpful! Some tips you give seem obvious when you think about it but never occurred to me beforehand - for example, sharing your guest post on social media. I wanted to ask... have you considered doing guest posting and getting paid for it? I came across a website the other day that was discussing getting paid for post contributions. Is this something you've ever done? Here is the link for anyone who is interested in killing two birds with one stone ;-)

Hi Pj, I happen to create a page for Guest blog, and I would like to invite you to post one on my site. You may link it to your site. Do let me know if you agree to do so. But just to let you know it is still under constructing. Regards Sadie

Thanks for the training PJ. One question though: when I guest post am I allowed to feature the same post on my own website, or total ownership is granted for the hosting website?
Reply
PjGermain Premium
I don't do that. I want it to be totally unique and generally, the other website owner will expect the same.

ElieChahine Premium
Yeah makes total sense. Thanks for the quick reply :)

There's just no stopping you PJ you're on a roll! Great tutorial. I've published many articles on Ezine over the years and they definitely do give you credibility. Also searching for high ranking blogs in your niche and commenting (sensibly) on them can give you solid backlinks. Thanks again for your hard work.
