    Guest blogging or not, your best bet to entertain the audience is to be regular. Most blogs fail when bloggers dont be regular and just post once in a month when they feel like and think they are fired up enough. Another point that is worth keeping in mind is to ensure that whatever you say are true to the best of your knowledge and that you do have enough credibility to talk about them.

    All the best for you future. I really love the idea and I hope you will keep us updated on the issue :D

    It's the most effective way to gain free backlinks these days, and is even popular with some of the most popular sites. Webmasters love it because they are getting fre content for nothing. Only write about what you know and remember to put your link at the end of the article. Also, be prepared to go back and answer any questions or critisisms in the comments section.

    As it is with anything related to blogging when you are Guest Blogging your main concern should be on what you write. Any Guest Blogging site would accept your post only when it has good quality content which is relevant to their sites niche.

    Do's & Dont's:
    1. Do not stuff keywords. Keep it real.
    2. Do keep the size of your article over 400 words.
    3. Do not put too many links
    4. Do put images


    All the best!

    Guest Blogging is more than writing a blog post for some other blog...There are 2 types of guest blogging –

    1. Guest blogging on own blog
    2. Guest blogging on others blog

    After Google panda Updation guest blogging is much more important than link exchange..importance of guest blogging is visitor attract to our blog and can share something or give some comments and give a link to our blog..

    Guest blogging is good option for getting back links. You can accept contents from your blogger or you can post your content at another blogs.

    1. Must be post contents which will be related with your blog themes
    2. Trying to post interesting contents which will help to engage your audiences
    3. Maintain content quality
    4. Put interesting images

    Guest blogging requires good writing skills and creativity. Make sure that you submit informative contents with maximum of three link backs to your website.

    - You need to discuss things direct to the point.
    - Avoid copying of ideas (I did not mention duplicate content. Duplicating ideas is far different from duplicating content itself)
    - Don't be a link hog. Blog owners most often prefer to have a link outs to different informative sources rather that just to your website. This is to provide great information to the readers of your post.
    - Upon approval, make sure that you will spread the word through social media platforms and other community websites that are related to your content.
    - Don't act as if you are the closest person to the blog owner to offer content that fast. You need to build relationship first. This will take time actually. But gaining the trust of bloggers is worth more than the links from their blogs.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm subscribed to the EzineArticles newsletter and they send good tips from time to time. They recommend the following things:


    1. Always provide Evidence That Supports Your Topic

    Back up your claims by showing your readers facts, data, etc. you've gathered in your niche. Should you quote other sources to support your topic, limit quotations to no more than 5 lines (total) of properly cited content.


    2. Write using active voice (subject performs action) to be direct and concise. Rigorously edit your articles to remove any signs of verbiage; check for the following:

    Remove needless words (e.g., "the reason for this is" = "because")
    Use emphatic words at the end of a sentence to drive the point home
    Add emotive language (e.g., health, anger, joy, frustration, passion, urgency, etc.)
    Stress nouns and verbs which are more powerful than adjectives and adverbs

    3. Use Power Words

    Let your audience know you're talking to them! Power words, such as "you" and "your," engage your reader and make them feel unique and singled out. The Internet is utilized by hundreds of millions of people every day, so making your readers or the visitors to your blog or website feel welcome in a personal way is essential in ensuring they return.

    Standard text: "In order to become a freelance writer, one must practice in their free time as much as possible."
    Powerful text: "Do you want to become a freelance writer? Practice as much as possible during your free time to achieve your goal!"

    4. Stay Short and Sweet

    Long, drawn-out paragraphs become overwhelming and the direct message is lost in the shuffle. This doesn't mean your style needs to be brusque ("succinct" doesn't mean "brash"). Be concise and thorough to be efficient. Provide your audience your expert opinion in reasonably sized passages or numbered lists to keep them interested and wanting more.

    Hope it helps!
