Guest Blogging

Loes Knetsch ©

Are you busy blogging, but it doesn’t get you anywhere? Then you probably place your writings in the wrong place. On LinkedIn and Facebook for example. Or on your own website. That does not work yet, as long as you do not have a lot of traffic yet. Maybe your partner and your mother are reading your blog. Because they love you. But the rest of the world does not know that you exist. Blogging on your own channels is a long-term strategy. And the long run, blogging will deliver visitors to your website. But you only get that traffic after a while.

Even if you really give very good information and write smoothly, you get a maximum of ten visitors a day to your website with a blog. And then you do it well because many times there are only ten per week or even per month.

Get visitors

But how do you get visitors to your blog right from the start?
One of the possibilities is to write an article for someone else’s site. You call that guest blogging. Such a guest blog you write specifically for another site with the sole purpose of attracting traffic to your own website via that other site.

This only works if you select a frequently visited site. And by busy, I mean blogs with several thousand visitors a day. There are well-visited blogs for every discipline. My website doesn’t attract 1000 visitors a day, yet, but I do get about 300-400 visitors a week.

Guest Blogging

A good guest blog also provides extra support for the host or hostess. That is why the chance is very high website owners allow you to write a guest article. Great blogs have always a shortage of articles and an extra blog also helps them.

But your main reason for guest blogging is of course that you can attract more visitors to your own site. You are not a philanthropic institution.

How do you manage traffic from the guest site to your website?

Usually, you can include a profile bio of yourself under a guest blog with links to your own site. Then lead people to your giveaway if they are relevant to the reader. Because when they are on your own list, you can now send them your own blog updates and offers. In a guest blog, you can also link to articles on your own site, as background information. It’s up to your host how many links they allow, so don’t overdo it.

You can also link to your own guest blog on your own site after placement. Keep your content unique, on your website and on the website where you place your guest blog. However, there is a way how you can share your own blog on your website too without duplicating the content. You are able to share it in a PDF, read more about how to do this here.

Some blogs allow you to put the article on your own site a few days or weeks after publication. That saves you a lot of paperwork. However, you need to adjust the words in your blog, otherwise, Google sees your blogs as duplicate content and that makes you less attractive to their search engines.

Share the original article on the site of your host, in your newsletter and via social media. With that, you help the blog that offers you a platform. And it helps you too. Because blogging on a large and well-known blog not only ensures that you get more visitors to your website. It also ensures that your expert status and brand awareness grows.

    Hi!

    Thanks for this extremely informative post. I think guest blogging is a formidable idea. It gets one added exposure as well as giving you another opportunity to keep your writing chops up. Writers write, and whether it’s for your own site or as a guest on someone else’s, or writing your own novel, or all of the above, the more opportunities you have to get your writing out there, the greater the cumulative effect for good for you and your aspirations.

    Thanks!

      You’re so right Norman, most people stick to their own website, but there are many other opportunity out there. As guest blogging, but also writing articles on blog forums.

    Guest posting is one of the best ways to get backlinks and traffic at the same time. As you mentioned, guest posting allows getting a link from a website that is already getting some decent traffic (like your site) which leads to some instant traffic. The backlink also helps with long-term SEO. Thanks.

    Great article Loes! I think that guest blogging is very important for us, especially for those websites that have just started they online journey. I must say that I have never done guest blogging because I was afraid of how can I do that for someone, what If my work is not interesting to that person?

    • Loes says:

    I’ve never guest blogged myself, but I have allowed guest bloggers to post to my site on many ocassions in the past! Most of the time it’s a win-win for both parties…

    You get a free high-quality article – They get a good backlink AND traffic from your blog to their blog!

    Have you ever guest blogged before and if so, how did it turn out for you?

  5. Courtney Myles says:

    I thought your website was amazing. It was very informative and well written. I was able to read your articles and take in a few pointers for my own article and to me that’s big and a new learning experience. I really enjoyed navigating through your website. Keep up the good work!

  6. Lynne Huysamen says:

    Thanks for the great introduction into guest blogging – you are so right it is an amazing way to get some good traffic to your website when you are first starting out. It also gains you a valuable link to your website which also helps to build your website authority so it is most definitely a win win. The best part is that it doesn’t have to cost you anything except a little bit of time. Would it not be fine to publish the same content on your website making use of a canonical link telling search engines that the guest blog is the original content?
