Guest blogging is simply where you write an article to appear on someone else’s website. This is a win-win situation because the site owner gets fresh content and you get exposure on someone else’s blog and you get a link back to your site.

Guest blogging is great for getting free traffic and high quality links AND it is actually recommended by Google

Guest blogging the Right Way

There’s a right way and a wrong way to write as a guest blogger.

The wrong way is to write as many low quality guest blog posts on as many blogs as possible to get the maximum number of links back to your site.

The title of this article should give you a clue to what’s wrong with this quantity not quality approach.

You do get links from guest blog posts, but you are looking for high quality links and more importantly  – free traffic. Your primary goal should be to get traffic from your guest blog posts, not just links.

You need to write high quality unique articles for two reasons. Firstly sites with high Page Rank and high visitor numbers are not going to publish second-rate content. Secondly even if you manage to get low quality articles published the articles are not going to be interesting enough to make readers want to visit your site to learn more from you.

High quality guest posts on high PR sites = free quality traffic to your site
