Tips for Finding Where to Post Your Guest Post

So, you’re ready to use guest blogging as a marketing tool, but you’re not sure where to find guest posting opportunities. Like so much about blogging, this seems more difficult than it actually is. Here are some tips on where to find posting gigs that will add to your web presence and customer base.

 

Search Your Niche

If you’re new to online business–or business in general–take time to explore your niche online. Chances are, you’ll be amazed at how many people share similar interests–and blog about them. You can also look into other special interests you have, and business blogs in general. Each of these areas has good guest-blogging potential. Obviously, sticking within your niche or subject matter increases your ability to attract clients who are looking for your services. But anytime you have the chance to blog, you’re expanding your web presence, enhancing your credibility, and building quality backlinks for your website which, as we know, contributes to SEO and page rank.

 

Search Your Keywords

If you’re going to make guest blogging one of your business strategies, it’s wise to build up a bank of posts to which you can turn whenever you have a blogging opportunity. Write these posts with searchable keywords in mind, just as you would an article. To find interested bloggers, search for your keywords and add the terms “guest blog.” For example, if I type in “investment advice guest blog,” I get a page listing blogs which accept guest posts. I can search these at leisure to find those which best suit my needs and style, and approach their owners regarding guesting.  Results, of course, vary depending on your subject, but even “toy trains guest blog” and “handmade violins guest blog” (both chosen at random) yielded at least one promising first page result. Other search terms you can combine with your keywords include: “guest bloggers wanted;” “submit an article;” “become a contributor,” and similar phrases.

 

Search Your Community

The first two suggestions focused on finding blog owners. This tip proposes that you search for an audience instead. Check out sites such as www.mashable.com’s “social networking god,” which lists over 300 sites covering interests from parenting to travel. Check promising sites for blogging sections, where you can post your own contributions for thousands to see. You can also check your email lists, social media contacts, and the blogs of people you know for guest gigs. Sometimes the best opportunities lie just under your nose.

 

Advertise!

Finally, let others know that you’re looking for guest blogging spots. You’ll receive responses from weary bloggers who need a day off, people who want to help support your growing career, and those who believe their own blogs and businesses could benefit from your contribution.

 

Guest blogging is an excellent way to improve your backlinks, site traffic and SEO. You’ll meet new clients, associates, and even a few good friends. It as easy as: Blog. Connect. Sell.
