When first trying to build your new blog, it can be easy to feel as if you are screaming into an over-saturated void full of loud voices just begging to be heard. By the end of 2019, there were a recorded 500 million blogs online. As 2020 quickly comes to an end, that number is estimated to now be closer to 600 million.
With numbers such as these, it’s no wonder people are intimidated by the thought of building their own blog. The good news is that many amazing practices can help you build traffic and your brand’s blog into a trusting, reliable source for your audience, and one of those is guest posting.
Guest posting is an extremely powerful content marketing strategy that can help you not only foster new relationships with a larger audience but, when done right, can help your overall authority in your industry skyrocket.
Skeptical? You shouldn’t be! One of our recent guest posting experiences absolutely blew our minds by taking our overall domain rating from a 4 and skyrocketing it up to 13! That’s no small feat!!
If guest posting is something you believe you can benefit from (which you can!), then you’re in the right place! In this article we will cover:
What is guest posting?
Simply put, guest posting, otherwise known as guest blogging, is the process of contributing an article to another website/blog within your particular niche.
It’s essential to note that guest posting is an inbound marketing strategy that shouldn’t be confused with sponsored posts. Here’s what makes these two strategies different:
Guest posting is a strategy that mutually benefits both parties involved. On one end, a site is receiving great content to share with their readers on a specific topic. On the other, the contributor (you) benefits through exposure (and of course more things which we’ll get to down below), which can help you build credibility as an authoritative figure in your niche!
Paid/Sponsored posts are posts that are similar to guest posts. However, they often lean more towards a promotional post. These posts are designed to drive traffic to the blog by paying an authoritative voice to write an informative post but often plugs the host site’s services or products.
Benefits of guest posting
Now contributing to other websites, rather than your own, can certainly seem a bit counterintuitive. But, guest posting is an indeed a powerful strategy for the following reasons:
Guest posting continues to be one of the most effective ways to build high-quality links back to your website. Which is super important for SEO, considering that one of the most important ranking factors Google takes into consideration is the # of high quality backlinks pointing back to your site!
In fact, numerous studies done have repeatedly backed this statement.
For example, a study done by Brian Dean from Backlinko and Ahrefs found that pages with more backlinks ranked higher with those that had less. And site’s with an overall high domain rating ranked higher.
What’s more, in an interview we recently did with our friend Ryan Robinson, he owed guest posting to be the most impactful strategy that helped fuel his blog’s growth to over 500,000 monthly readers! For him, guest posting was great for both getting incremental traffic gains from those sites that he guest blogs on and the best way to build high-quality links from other websites!
Builds your readership/following outside your blog
Just recently, I had the awesome opportunity to write a guest post for Zapier, a website that offers brands a suite of marketing tools.
More importantly however, this opportunity allowed me to reach their audience of over 1,000,000+ monthly readers! Which was insane!
And thanks to the information we provided, we received a lot of positive feedback! With many from the Zapier audience coming back to our website directly and seeking additional help, such as this!
(Update: This turned out to be an awesome opportunity to help a startup! Which I gladly said yes to!!)
So moral of the story, with guest posting, you’re given the opportunity to tap into new and larger audiences, enabling you to attract new leads, customers, subscribers, and raving fans! That’s because posting on others’ websites allows you to have direct access to a vast pool of people who may be already interested in your niche!
Additionally, it goes without saying that when you’re able to publish on various sites (particularly larger ones), you’ll be able to help your brand gain recognition and establish yourself as an authority in your niche.
Develops relationship with others in your niche
It’s all about relationships baby! And guest posting is a great way to meet and connect with others doing similar things as yourself!
Because it certainly does take hard work to achieve a level of authority in any industry; but it’s definitely much easier when you have the support of others! After all, with an awesome circle there to help and give you a leg up, who knows the vast amount of opportunities that can present themselves for you in the future!
Guest posting best practices
To ensure that you’re able to reap the utmost benefits of publishing a guest post and avoid getting penalized by the ever changing landscape of Google’s algorithms, we’ve listed a couple of things to keep in mind and be considerate of when publishing a guest post. These practices include:
Create valuable content that serves
Don’t use guest post solely for link building
Read the contributor guidelines
Proofread your articles and pitches
Contribute to sites similar to your niche
Create valuable content that serves
The most important thing to consider when writing a guest post is to think about how you can best add value to the audience you’re interacting with. You want to take the time to consider their needs and how you can best leverage your knowledge and expertise to serve them.
Because it’s more than just a backlink acquisition strategy, it’s an opportunity for sparking new, interesting conversations, and if readers like and connect with what you’re saying, they’ll be likely to follow you back to your blog!
Don’t use guest posting solely for link building
While obtaining links is undoubtedly one of the significant rewards of guest posting, it shouldn’t be your only incentive behind contributing an article to another site – nor should it be one that’s abused. This is because Google has since cracked down on link building schemes and can tell when you’re out only for links!
Read the contributor guidelines
Although it may sound like a no brainer, but reading the contributor guidelines is super important. It informs you of the type of content the site is looking for, format and length, whether or not they allow a link back to your website, and anything else they deem important in their publishing process.
Proofread your article and pitches
No professional wants to receive a poorly written proposal or article. Formatting errors (even small ones that don’t seem like they matter) can, unfortunately, make the receiver assume that you’re not fully invested and concerned with their best interests in providing the highest quality for their audience. So always be sure to go over your work and put your best foot forward!
You can use awesome tools such as the Hemingway App and Grammarly to assist you with this.
Contribute to sites similar to your niche
Guest posting works best (and you receive the most SEO benefits) when you contribute to a website/blog relevant to yours. This is because it not only makes the writing process easier for you, but it allows you to provide the most value to readers!

How can I find additional guest posting opportunities?
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.
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!
