How to find the best site for Blogging and earn money?
Guest blogging can be a great source of income, but as you know if you’ve read this blog before, you have to be careful with it. I do not think I need to sell you on the advantages of guest blogging. Chances are, you’re already doing some version of it.
I am assuming you know by now how to craft a good guest post, and how to pitch one to a prospective site editor, so what I’m going to do here is offer you a variety of ways you can make money from the whole process.
- Find relevant sites accepting guest in your Niche- Most serious bloggers will start by identifying the thought leaders in their niche and strive to regularly interact with them on social media. Establishing a relationship with other successful bloggers helps you bypass some of the red tapes during the process. Otherwise, you will need to develop methodical ways of reaching out and introducing yourself to these entrepreneurs.
How to find websites for guest posts?
- The first step to creating a list of authority blogs in your niche is to search Google for keyword phrases describing your niche and add the unique, high-quality sites that show up in the first two hundred results.
- sites you see in the search results to your list. Do this for multiple keywords. At this point, we are not qualifying sites but building a comprehensive list.
- Another method is to find a high-profile blogger from a competing blog and search”Guest post by [insert name)”.The purpose of this is to find all the blogs this competing blogger has guest written for because, essentially, you want all the same links they do.
Other useful phrases to include in quotes after your keyword search term are:
- “guest post”
- “write for us”
- “submission guidelines”
- “submit a post”
- “guest author”
- “accepting guest posts”
- You should start with the obvious places: look at the “Contact Us” and “About Us” pages to see if they mention anything about guest posting guidelines.
- Some sites will have pages labeled “Guest Posting” or “Write For Us”. Take note that these links may not be displayed prominently – near the header.
1.site:domain.com “submit a guest post”.
2.”guest post by”.
3.”contribute an article”.
4.” want to write”.
5.”submit your post”.
6.” become a contributor”.
7.”accepting guest posts”.
How to contact bloggers for guest posts?
Contacting blogs is going to be useless if you don’t have some ideas on tap, and nobody will respond to you if you don’t have a blog or writing samples in their niche.
It’s the reality, and I know it might be a hard one.
If none of these queries turn up any
results, the blog likely doesn’t accept guest
submissions so delete it off your list.
- While there are many benefits to guest blogging, including growing your audience and building a reputation, you also want to focus on blogs that will offer you an SEO benefit.
- Yoast = helped me to “start” SEO – it helps you check that you have a good headline, slug URL, subheadings, keywords, and more.
What is the Yoast SEO Plugin – Premium?
Some of the advanced features I love are:
- You can optimize for multiple keywords or keyword phrases which is great if there is more than one to target. It comes with a redirect manager so you can easily redirect old or out-of-date posts
- it has social previews so you can see what your images will look like on the various social media platforms.
- This doesn’t mean linking back from hundred guest posts with the keyword”how to shave”, but taking the opportunity to conservatively diversify your link profile and nudge Google into realizing what other queries you offer insight on.
Here are some ways you can assess if a blog is worth your time.
- Determine the purpose of your blog and stick with it.
- Leverage social media.
- Speak to your audience’s language.
- Make sure your content is SEO-friendly.
- Check if the in-content outbound links are “do follow”. If they are “no-follow”, then scratch the blog off your list.
- Check the Domain Authority.
- At this point, you will have a shorter list but with the highest quality sites, and that’s all that really matters.
