Guest posting is where you write a blog post that gets placed on someone else's blog, or you allow other people to write articles for placement on your blog.

When you write a guest post on someone else's blog, it gives you wider exposure and helps position you as an industry expert. You can also usually include a link to your own website in your author bio.

Having others guest post on your blog can also help position your blog as an authoritative source. Plus it generates content for you without you having to write it yourself. Of course, if you have someone else guest posting for you, you should offer them the opportunity to include a link to their site in their author bio.

Hi jasminelane,

Here is a video tutorial on how you can find blogs that accept guest blogging and how to reach out those bloggers effectively.


NOTE: keep in mind what Google's new view on guest blogging is though:

Thanks for that video link, Jeff. It's important to realize that if you're spinning articles or creating crappy short articles for links, it's probably not going to be worth your time in the long run.

Quality written articles on quality sites and blogs is where I would spend my time guest posting.

The biggest benefit of guest posting that I have found is that it free's up your time for other projects. While someone else is writing content for one of your blogs, you can focus on another.
