Google love blogs as they are updated with fresh and targeted content on regular basis. And as a blogger, it becomes a big challenge coming up with quality posts on regular basis. This is where guest blogging comes into play.
Guest blogging is beneficial for the guest posters and blog owners. With guest blogging, guest posters are able to get valuable and quality one-way backlinks, traffic and branding for their websites with various anchor texts. And with guest blogging concept, blog owners are able to get targeted content coming on their blogs from other website owners and bloggers in their own and related niches.
But now the real problem arises, how to find guest bloggers who will be interested in writing guest posts on your blog. If you are facing the similar problem, I’m going to share 5 tips to help you with getting lots of guest posts coming on your blog:
1. Popular Blogs in Your Niche
Spend some time browsing some of the popular blogs in your niche and make a list of bloggers and website owners contributing guest posts there. Contact all guest bloggers and invite them for guest blogging on your blog. If you have decent blog, there is a good chance that lots of people will respond positively to your invitation.
2. Create Submit Post Section
Create a “Submit Post Section” on your blog indicating your blog readers the opportunity to write guest posts on your blog. You should mention some basic details like the kind of content you accept, words length, link policy, how to contact you etc. on that page.
3. Holding Contests
You can get lots of targeted outputs by holding contests and giving away stuffs that matters. You can think of creating a guest blogging contest on your blog, which will motivate lots of guest bloggers to write for your blog.
I have been running a guest blogging contest on my blog, which looks a great success to me looking the kind of response I’m getting from other bloggers and website owners in the form of guest posts. So you can repeat the same kind of success on your blog doing a similar contest.
4. Inviting Old Guest Bloggers to Contribute More
If your blog has already got some guest posts published from other bloggers. Then why not generate a list of all guest bloggers and invite them to submit further guest posts on your blog. On seeing your guest posts invitation there will be some who will actually be interested in writing more guest posts for your blog. I got some level of success using this technique as well.
5. Create Threads on Discussion Forums
Create threads on MyBlogGuest (a site completely dedicated to guest blogging), Digitalpoint Forum, SitePoint, Warrior Forum kind of discussion forums created around webmasters, SEO and blogging communities. Lots of guest bloggers browse these discussion forums as a way to find blogs where they can submit their guest posts. So you should see some positive response coming on your threads created on these discussion forums.
