When 60% of the blogs over the internet are supported by guest blogging for organic traffic and lasting search ranking, there is ample scope for the bloggers to make their posts credible all around.
This sounds interesting.
The craze of link building is positively transforming into generating higher visibility through an organic means of guest postings. This is automatically helping businesses generate increased ROI and lasting search results.
In a quick interview with a digital marketing expert and consultant from Ahmedabad – Viral Panchal, I have compiled some of the important points that will help all working in this field. Let us check it out here:
Question: How will you analyze which high authority site is best to collaborate with guest blogging?
Answer: Of course, you are not willing to toss all opportunities of guest posting from lower authority sites. Your focus should be on getting some decent traffic and a backlink. You should immediately turn to ALEXA.
Alexa toolbar will help you get the list of top guest posting sites, especially those that are ranked within the top 100,000 on Alexa. Alexa is actually a good indicator to tell you which site is popular and this will help to boost your blog’s organic traffic.
Question: Do all guest-posting sites accept all kinds of posts and link back to them?
Answer: No, some sites are free, while some are paid. Niche plays an important role here. For example, if you are into travel business, then you should approach only the travel and tourism-based websites.
If you want to do a Google Search, you can simply type:
Guest Post + Travel
Remember, always be particular with the keywords and niche and on their basis only, you can connect to the sites saying ‘write to us’, ‘write for me’, ‘contribute to’, ‘submit+inurl:blog’, ‘submit a guest post’, ‘accepting guest posts’, ‘guest column’, ‘become a contributor’, and so on.
Question: What type of & how long a guest post should be?
Answer: Google loves authentic and organic content. Blogs over 2000+ words are far more likely to have strong results.
· Your guest blog should target high domain authority and page authority sites in the relevant category.
· Your blog should be perfect enough to attract media groups and channels towards the information you are supplying.
· It should target a perfect website that is regularly updated; for example, a search engine journal.
· It is supported by a perfect email to ping the website team to read what you want and encourage them to ask you for the content.
· Links, if any, should be placed correctly and the blog should be able to move much traffic from your partner’s site to your own website through good anchor text.
Question: What are the most popular guest posting websites according to you? Or, what sites you would like to recommend in general to post guest blogs?
Answer: First, I would like to tell you that there is a huge importance of backlinks when you are working on guest posts. Of course, getting a link back to your site is the most desirable point behind this activity. If you are getting a ‘do follow’ link, it will help you getting link value plus web traffic from the original site. However, if you are getting a ‘no follow’ link, it would bring you web traffic only. So, be particular about the source from where you are getting a link. Now, let me tell you about the best guest posting sources.

Question: What will be your essential guest blogging tip?
Answer: The list of the sites will go long as hundreds and thousands of websites accept guest posts and willing to share returns in terms of a good deal. The most important thing to remember while jumping into this venture is to find the places where most of your potential audience hangs out.
Avoid duplicity and submit only the original content. Follow site-guidelines and strive to benefit readers. Your entire focus should be to provide value to your host site. If it is your first post, then make the self-promotion a secondary thing.
Guest blogging really works. It is the most appropriate way to get excellent visibility on search engines and great readability if your content is genuine.
