We see many blogs on the internet which promote their users blog who write a guest post on their blogs but there a question arises that does writing a guest post really beneficial for us?
What is a guest post?
Guest blogging refers to write articles for any other blogs with high Page Rank in order to drive traffic of readers from that particular blog or website. It is the best way to reach high audience immediately. Many websites also pays Guest bloggers for each post but there are many which helps you to reach audience and get traffic to your website.
How Guest Post Really helps?
Guest Post helps you build backlinks and also in some cases a good sources of earning money. Backlinks helps you win the trust of search engines and also it also Increases your Alexa Rank.
But are you really Getting Backlinks from your Guest Posts?
As I have seen in many blogs which really provide backlinks but there are many which provide nothing in return of your Guest Posts on their Blog.
Here I am taking Example of two popular Guest Post enabled Blog:
First : Problogger.net : Providing you Proper Credit and Backlink
|Footer of Guest Post on Problogger.net|
As you can see Problogger by Darren Rowse gives proper credit as well real backlinks to the guest post writer's Blog.
Second : Shoutmeloud.com : You will write guest post for nothing
|Footer of Guest Post on ShoutMeLoud.com|
As you can see here at shoutmeloud at the end of guest post you will only see writers name but no link for writer's blog. So how users of shoutmeloud will visit to your blog? which proves that Guest Posts on these blog is totally a waste because you are writing for Nothing.
My final words for this post is that guest post is good if you are getting proper do-follow backlinks and proper credits to your blog from that blog where you posted your guest post. I think no one is free to write a unique post for nothing for others blogs much better to write for blog which really help you to meet with great audience.
