There are several ways to find for guest posting opportunities. Aside from the numerous advantages (and some disadvantages) of guest posting, there is one important factor that you should take into consideration and that is relevancy. To obtain maximum exposure and leverage on the benefits of guest posting, be sure to write articles that are relevant to your niche or to that of your websites topic. Obviously the opposite is also true, that being, you should write only guest post on blogs that are equally relevant. Does not make much sense writing about the secrets to generating massive traffic, and submitting on a website, whose purpose is to deliver to their audience lessons on how to play the guitar. Makes sense?
In addition, and since you are already writing with all your might, instead of submitting a quality article on low quality sites, why not send it over to high quality ones, where you are almost ensured that it will generate good exposure, buzz, and gain some authority backlinks? If you are looking to build high authority backlinks, which you should, as part of your SEO campaign, I can’t see no better way to do this than getting your article out there, where it matters. Another way of course is getting interviewed by top bloggers, but that is a different topic and will be tackled in the near future.
That said, and If you are in the social media, internet marketing, online business, SEO and related niches, or simply looking for places to build a monster career builder (professional blogger) opportunity, then the short list below will serve you good. These are my recommended sites for you to submit you quality writing and they are all open for guest posts. While this is so, these sites, being already established and highly reputable, will not accept crap and non original content. That’s for starters. Read their guidelines very carefully, abide by them to its fullest, and you are good to go.
Before you jump over the list, you should know that my selection process was based on several factors, two of them being crucial to be here. One is the level of interactions I have with their site owners, and the other, that the site has clear guidelines on how to submit guest posts (links on the list points towards the sites guest posting guidelines, with the exception of two that makes the whole process even simpler). I won’t be able to recommend any of these if I did not know anything about them or the sites they manage, right? So, if for some reason you are not here, please don’t take it personal as I will be updating this list as time goes by. If you feel you should have been here, let me know. I’m all in, lol.
