Guest posting sites

125+ Websites and Blogs That Accept Guest Posts

Table of Contents

So you’re looking to write some guest posts eyy?

Well….I got you! 

Below I’ve listed over 125+ websites that accept contributors!

But before we get to the list, I just want to go over something really quick that’s pretty important! 

Let’s dive in.

Writing guest posts for backlinks

Let’s be honest, you’re here with me today because you’re more than likely looking for guest posting opportunities for the purpose of building links. 

And I don’t blame you. 

In a recent interview I did with my guy Ryan Robinson, he owed guest posting to be by far the most impactful strategy that has helped his blog grow to over 500,000/monthly readers! 

My boy Adam from AdamEnfroy, launched his site in 2019. Fast forward two years later, it now brings him home over $100K/month and drives 500,000+/monthly readers.

His main link building strategy that helped him achieve this? 

You guessed it, guest posting! 

But hey, they’re not the only ones taking advantage of this strategy. 

According to Moz’s 2016 state of link building survey—which had over 435 respondents coming from agencies, in-house SEOs, consultants, and freelancers—78% of them said that they felt that guest posting (along with content promotion) was by far the most effective way to build links.

Most effective link building tactics study

So yeah, now you get why I said don’t blame you for using guest posting as a link building strategy. 

Because it works! 

But the thing is there’s a fine line between what does and doesn’t work with guest posting for links. 

In short:

What works is high quality guest posting. Meaning providing super quality content on super quality sites—not just writing stuff for links.

It’s funny because my evidence to back this statement up comes from somebody actually trying to come at Matt Cutts (he was the former head of webspam for Google, if you may not know) for allowing a guest post on his blog that included a dofollow link.

Matt Cutts on guest posting

His counter argument however was that it was a high-quality guest post that had the sole intent of helping his audience, and not for building links. So he didn’t have a problem allowing the link (which was there naturally and didn’t have the intent of passing “page rank”). 

Now I’m assuming (please correct if I’m wrong down in the comments) from this, that if you write something (such as a quality guest post) and link to something without the intent to pass “page rankings” and the link is really there naturally, then there is no reason to nofollow the link (and you should be good). 

But of course if the link is solely there to pass “page rank” and appears unnatural, then yeah, you should nofollow the link. 

Which brings us to….

What doesn’t work for guest posting? 

Here’s a recent email I received from someone looking to contribute to my blog.

Bad Outreach #3

And here’s another one.

Bad Outreach #2

You can sorta get where this is going. 

A lot of guest posting out there is being used as just a way of getting links (to pass “Page Rank”) and taking shortcuts to do so. 

Bringing about practices such as writing low-quality content on low-quality (spammy) sites, spinning articles, and offering money (paying for links). 

These practices are something you definitely want to steer clear of, as Matt Cutts (back in 2014) stated the death of these tactics and Google taking action towards these sites. 

Here’s one of his videos where talks about this. 

So I kinda hope that clears the air between quality guest posting (what you should be doing) and sh***y guest posting (what you should be avoiding). 

And I’ll be the first to tell you the truth—quality guest posting takes work! 

You have to come up with and create quality content, along with building relationships with other webmasters. 

But you’ll see that it’s totally worth it in the long run (bigger network means more opportunities, additionally if you’ve been creating some pretty awesome content, people will recognize that)!

Plus taking this approach can land you some guest posts on big sites!

Websites and blogs accepting guest posts

Time for the good stuff! 

Below I’ve listed 125+ websites that are currently accepting guest posts. I’ve separated them into 11 categories that I’ve featured down below. 

Please do let me know if any of these sites are no longer accept contributions, as I’m tryna keep this list as updated as possible. 

Thanks 😉

How to find additional guest posting sites

Most of the time it’s as simple as a Google search. Simply type in a few words describing your niche, followed by some variant of the phrase “guest posting opportunities” or “write for us”. And what should follow are countless sites that appear that accept guest posts.

From there, you can research sites individually to find places that seem like good fits.

Final thoughts 

Guest posting is definitely a powerful tool you can leverage to help increase traffic to your blog, especially a new one—when done right. But don’t solely focus on what you can gain out of these relationships or guest posting opportunities. 

Instead, see guest posting as an opportunity to expand your professional network, serve others and potentially build meaningful friendships with people who do similar things as you. Because this inevitably leads to a win-win for everyone involved!
