Using the Articles Gallery (as the Guest Author)

How do I submit my first article to the Articles Gallery?

  1. Please go PRO
  2. Read our quality standards and rules (here’s the video version)
  3. Go to My Articles -> Submit new
  4. Add your title, meta description and tags (tags will help mods promote your article)
  5. Select the closest category (please avoid “General” category)
  6. Add a byline with your links (please copy-paste URLs right from the browser address bar to make sure they are working)
  7. Hit “Publish” and double-check is you have followed all our rules

Permalink.

How do I get more offers to my article?

  • Make sure your article is in-line with our checklist (please also add images)
  • Post in this thread to request content ideas for more offers. Here are some example of great guest posts we host here
  • Make sure your links look natural
  • Ask us to share it by contacting mods AT myblogguest.com (Please make sure you do the three steps above first)
  • Learn indepth tricks by following our #myblogguest Twitter chats every Thursday (here are the recaps with lots of tips)

How do I use MyBlogGuest Direct?

MyBlogGuest direct works as follows:

  • Upload a great guest post to our gallery;
  • (In case no great offers seem to be coming in), use the internal search feature to send that article to a chosen blog;
  • Wait for a couple of days to see the article published.

Here’s the whole process visualized by our user:

How do I choose which offer to accept?

  • Evaluate siteCheck basic stats: hover over on the site to see its Google PR, MozRank and number of pages indexed in Google. Again, take a quick note but move further.
  • Browse the site to see if there’s any activity on it: comments, tweets, shares.
    • If there are not social media count buttons to see if the pages are shared, try one of these tools.
    • Check for obvious signs of low-quality dropped / expired domains: absent or poorly-written (“default”) “About” pages.
    • Check for obviously-paid links: Dirty anchor text in the sidebar or footer.
    • Check for unmoderated comments: Good bloggers always moderate and reply to comments.
  • Follow your own “gut” feeling: If the blog theme fresh / unique? Are there only *guest* articles published or is it also maintained by the owner as well? Do you like the content?
  • Check MyBlogGuest history of the user: The blog owner’s user ratings and forum activity as well as his social media profiles.

Remember:

Don’t ignore newer sites with great potential (growing community). It’s easier to stand out and get noticed when you enter a new but already vibrant community.

>>>Every huge site was once a tiny newbie and I am sure they still remember and appreciate their very first contributors!

What are the notes?

NOTES are located in the right-most column of the gallery. Notes can be private (visible to the author and mods) and public (visible to all the users).

Tips for using notes as the author:

  • [Required] Use public notes to describe your in-body self-serving link (if you have any). Please read about natural *in-body* linking here: http://myblogguest.com/blog/1490
  • [Required] Use public notes to describe your image license and credit. You are only allowed to use Creative Commons, Royalty Free or your own images. See tips and resources here. Example: “Royalty-free image inside. Source: http://bit.ly/Q29Jlg” This is very important because this way publishers will know for sure they can safely use your images!
  • [Encouraged] Use public notes when you want to get more attention to your articles. (Example: “Lost of awesome images inside.”)

How do you protect my guest posts from being deleted?

We use the built-in feature called Tracker (we have it as a standalone tool as well): It regularly goes through your articles to ensure:

  • The article is live
  • The links in it are there
  • The links in your guest post have no nofollow

In case any major change has been made, you’ll receive an email and PM asking you to review the article and, if needed, report the issue to the support team.

email alert

Try to contact the publisher first as most of the errors that happen are pure misunderstanding and it’s easy to settle them.

Feel free to seek our team’s help if:

  • The publisher hasn’t replied to you for three business days;
  • The publisher is obviously missing out of action (judging on the last login date)
  • The publisher has obviously done something greyish (example: stole your article and published it on another blog without the credit). We want to be very fast to react to those serious cases like that to avoid further damage.

What if Your Article Seems Fine?

If you visited the guest post and haven’t found anything wrong with it, go to your “Published (Completed)” folder and locate that article. By hovering over the (!) sign, you’ll see the reason why the machine thought there was anything wrong with the article:

link flag

If you still think your article is fine, click “Re-check automatically”. This will prompt the machine to check the article again:

link flag

If the machine still insists there’s something wrong (this may happen with certain designs and layouts that prevent our scraper from viewing the page properly), click “Approve manually”

How can I submit my content to the gallery?

As a publisher, you can offer your blog to any article in the gallery for free (all articles are completely free of charge).

However to upload your own articles to the gallery, you need to GO PRO

Here’s the break-through of our available plans:

go-pro

If you are interested to GO PRO, you can do that by signing in and then following this link

Why do moderators suddenly start having issues with my articles?

Concerning Gallery Moderation, Please Note the Following:

  • We have only two pre-moderated sections within MyBlogGuest (meaning the articles are checked by the editor before they go live in the Gallery). Those are the
    Elite Gallery and Articles Requests. Both are moderated by one editor. Article Requests focuses on meeting the publisher’s guidelines, and these can vary from the criteria normally required.
  • The Articles, Infographics,
    and Books Galleries are NOT pre-moderated. Consequently, it may seem as if your article passed muster just fine, then you get a note about something that needs correction. That simply means your article has made it to the front of the moderation queue. Please check our quality guidelines to make sure your articles meet the standards found there. That will save you from needing to revise and resubmit an article before it can be published.
  • Our moderators work hard to serve you, but they are human beings.
    Each is committed to upholding the My Blog Guest Guidelines, but they sometimes do differ in their interpretation of those Guidelines and their application in a given circumstance. Most of the time, things work better when you accept the feedback, make the necessary changes, and keep moving forward. One thing is certain: The moderators’ remarks are always
    aimed at making your articles better
    and your work more successful. We are on your side.
  • We do value your feedback. Please participate in the Forums on the main website (www.myblogguest.com) and in the Google Plus Community to discuss the Guidelines in general. Your questions and observations are always welcome. The Guidelines are meant to help us stay on track, not fence us in.
  • Should you have a specific instance you wish to appeal, please send an email to mods AT myblogguest.com. Include your MBG member name, the title of (and a link to) the article in question, and your understanding of the problem. Mods will discuss the issue as a team. They will then either agree with you, disagree with you, or appeal to Admin for further clarification on the Guidelines. Either way, you will be treated fairly and respectfully. We are all in this game together, and we all want the very same thing: Your success.

How do I get my Google Authorship verified at #MyBlogGuest

Please see below just a couple of more tips in addition to what we have here and here.

Our authors often get confused by adding and image to their authorship info. Per our rules it is required to have a headshot photo added to Gravatar emails to get Google Authorship approved from the very first time.

    I find this site very difficult to get into but it is probably me! You ask for my signature but there is a lot of space there. You obviously want more than my name written by in my hand What exactly do you expect? Where can I see a sample? In fact i can’t see anything on thous site yet probably because I have not submitted all my information.

      Brian, you should be able to see a small “checklist” to the left with some required steps to get started. Other than that nothing is required!

        Please help me get verified. I can’t ask anyone here since I’m not verified, but that’s my questions-so confusing.

        There’s no code to upload or place to click “verify” when you do or I would have done that.

        If I took a shot of the Google Analytics page for tile excellence, what email do I send it to? I already emailed this forum, and my message didn’t go through and it sent me to the forum. Can’t comment there cause I’m not verified. Wow.

        Okay. Just very frustrated.
        Thanks.

      Why don’t you try another method of verification

      Please mind that each email should be at corresponding domain for it to work. Please also check the spam folder

    It seems that my blog does not meet the site requirements. I’m guessing that it because it is not “established” enough.

    Can I submit articles for guest posting? I would still like to participate in this community. I am also a member at Viral content buzz and Triberr and am active in social media.

    Thank you,
    Sabra

    I am trying to sign up to your site, but the Captcha code is not being recognised and saying I’ve typed it in wrong. I have tried 4 / 5 times and made sure that it is correct. I cannot email you either because it’s saying the same thing.

    Please can you contact me.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I have installed the plugin on our website, I have gone through the verification process, and I’ve done everything you’re asking for, but I still can’t see any content whatsoever on the website when using the plugin. It’s not working. And I have to say, the process of getting set up on your platform and the system used for that is almost like getting set up for government security access to the Pentagon…:)

      So I guess my service is not wanted since months have passed and I have yet to see any response to my question, whatsoever. Thanks for showing me how well this site works for people who are interested in it (sic), or actually how well it does not work for us, I suppose I should say. Feel free to ignore my request to join since answering a simple question is such an arduous task for the site owner(s). I would not wish to tax the powers that attempted to be beyond their capabilities. Feel free to delete me.

        Hi, I just want to know that how can I post my first blog on MBG. As I am new to MBG so I do not have any idea how to post blog/article. I saw tutorial for the same issue. They says that there is an option “My Articles”. When you click on it, you will see another option “Submit Article”. But when I clicked on the My Articles” button, I saw that there is no option as mentioned in video. The link goes to “My Blog Guest » Become MyBlogGuest.com Premium Member!

        And no other option like submit article”. Kindly help me out this.

        Much Thanks!

    Hey there, I keep on getting ‘error’ messages when adding my facebook page and pinterest page. I think it is affecting my ratings and scores. Just curious if it could be looked into!

    After clicking, “Get This Article Free”–there is a box that says, “Make Your Offer”??? I’m confused, is this where we make monetary offers for articles? What exactly are we offering? Thank you.
