GUEST POSTING - CAN GROW YOUR BLOG OR NOT?

Recently I came to know about the Guest Blogging but I don't know anything about it at that time. It took me week time to gain knowledge about it. I didn't do any Guest posting till now to date of publishing this article. But I want to share some information about the Guest Blogging.

GUEST BLOGGING?

Guest Blogging - in my words I define it as "writing good articles and posting or publishing them on others Blog spot or Website for free and it up to the decision of the Blogger to decide whether to publish that article or not".

Guest Blogging has some of the rules or guide lines, they are - “Author should provide Unique content and Blogger should not Edit the Article without prior permission from the Author   except the minor Grammar mistakes."
 
Guest posting has many advantages to Bloggers and the Authors. The four reasons why Guest Blogging is a key strategy to every blogger is:

1. FREE EXCLUSIVE CONTENT:

It is main advantage of the blogger who offers others to Guest post in his Blog, where he can get an Exclusive and free content without doing any work about that topic. This helps to increase the content of the blog without any hard work.

2. NETWORK WITH OTHER BLOGGERS:

This Guest posting and adding value to someone's Blog helps to connect with other efficient Bloggers and maintain good relationship with the other Bloggers. With this large number of conversations on Internet between takes place which makes them friends. By this we are going to develop Influence over social media and leads to more Blog subscribers.

3. TARGETED TRAFFIC FROM SEARCH ENGINES:

In order to get benefit of getting traffic from Search Engines Guest Blogger must ask the Host Blogger to "Include a link to your Blog in the somewhere i.e., usually at the begging or at the end of the post". This Linking is called back link. This Back linking raises the value of your Blog over search engines and it is to fin over Google, Yahoo, Bing....etc.

4. INTRODUCTION TO NEW COMMUNITIES:

If you are writing good posts in the Host Blog that makes the people in that community as the readers, fans and followers of your Own Blog which leads to the construction of your own Empire and Reputation. It is because due to the established community of the Host Blog and Good value of your post.

Suggestions for Host Bloggers:

If your are allowing people to Guest Post in your Blog then you must be care full of the below things and check them one or more times before publishing that article from the Guest Bloggers........

a) UNIQUE AND DETAILED CONTENT:

Some of the Bloggers are not good writers and not have adequate knowledge, but they write the articles and offer them to the Guest Blogs. At that time the Host Blogger must check and verify that content provided by the Guest Blogger is Unique and whether the detailed description about the topic is given or not.

b) DON'T GIVE THE AUTHOR ACCOUNTS:

It is biggest mistake that is done by the Host Bloggers, because some of the Authors are not honest and can be bribed easily and the content in our Blog gets effected very adversely like posting Spammy links and deleting some piece of the content from our Blog. If you want to give Author Accounts for the purpose of time saving then make sure that Authors only ability of saving content as Draft.

c) OWNING OF THE CONTENT:

As the Host Blogger you should demand for the owning of the content of the Guest Post. If the Author Links the Guest Post from his/her Blog then that is good for giving the credit of writing, as long as you own the content there is no issue. Owning of the content of the Guest Post doesn't allow people to write same content in their Blog or Other people sites.

d) SHOULD BE STRICT IN SELECTING:

Although you are getting many requests for posting the Guest articles in your Blog you must be very strict and selective during the pick of the Posts from Guest post's. The Guest Posts must be free from spelling mistakes and Grammar errors. We should select the guest posts in a way that it should maintain the theme of our Blog and improve the Blog traffic. It is useless of Guest Posting if you choose any unrelated topic to your Blog.  

Suggestions to Guest Bloggers:

It is based upon the interest of the Bloggers whether to write Guest Posts or not. If the Blog is having good enough Posts with good value to the posts and getting good traffic for the written content then I think it is not necessary to Write Guest Posts. Otherwise it helps a lot.

But life is race where one should try for better choices in everything. In this aspect it is good to write Guest Posts in some of the famous Blogs with good content without Grammar and Spelling mistakes.

At that of writing a Guest Post in any Blog or Website one should have to follow some guidelines for the improvement of the Traffic to your Blog......

a) You can ask the Host Blogger to Post the Back links of your Blog Posts in the Guest post of you. This helps in redirecting of traffic to your Blog.

b) You can withhold rights of your post, so that Host Blogger cannot make any changes in the content of the Post without your permission.

c) Ask permission from the Host Blogger to Link the Posts from your Blog or Website so that Credit of writing can be gained by you.

Yes, Guest Blogging really can grow the traffic of the Host and Guest Blogs/Websites by growing your Blog with Quality content and maintains good relationship among Bloggers. In the Final, it is good to promote the Habit of Guest Posting in Every aspect as it has many advantages if you follow the above mentioned guidelines.
