I am occasionally asked to be a guest blogger and I always take them up on it.
Especially if the blog has high rankings and a lot of traffic and the blog is related to something that I am already writing about.
One of my blogs is about business development and entrepreneurship.
I submitted this blog about a month ago. Most of the time it takes between two and four weeks before the blog shows up on their blog.
This is a great way to gain more visibility, backlinks to your blog and drive traffic back to your site. This particular blog site included a full bio, but that is more the exception than the rule of guest blogging. Typically they will include a signature line.
They added another new touch for guest blogger that is a great bonus. Below the bio they have a toolbar for “Website – Twitter – Facebook – More Posts” which are hotlinks (click through to the site) back to each one of my Social Media links.
I’ll keep you posted on how it effects the traffic on my blog. So far it already has 15 likes on their Facebook and 3 re-Tweets.
You can search for blogs in your topic and request doing a guest blog. You won’t have to work too hard to get other bloggers to agree to add your blog post.
Another way to add content to your blog is to request other bloggers to your site. Just be sure their content is appropriate to your blog.
I’ll talk more at a later date on how you can set this up for your blog.
