Guest Blogging Versus Blogging for Yourself

Category General Posted by

I hear this question weekly: what’s better – to publish your best content on your own blog or use it to guest post?

My obvious reply is “Do both” :)

In reality, there are too many “It depends” to answer this question. It depends on how large your blog is; it depends on what your objectives are; it depends on your content; it depends on how well networked you are; etc.

Of course, you should have your own blog (which is your landing page and your personal loyal community home) an of course, to expand your reach, you should start guest blogging. There’s really nothing to compare… Read more »

Google, Guest Blogging and SEO

Category General Posted by

There has been some discussion as to whether Google likes guest posting. Although some guest posters deny it, and guest posting can be done to leverage traffic and promote brand as well as for SEO, there’s little doubt that for some people at least the goal is to manipulate search engine rankings.

And that, in theory at least, is a definite no no for Google.

When manipulation can help.

Of course, as one of my favourite SEOs, Ross Hudgeons, has pointed out, manipulation is only a bad thing when it disrupts the user experience.

And I’d argue that guest posting does the opposite of that.

If Google has done its work right in the first place, the blogs and websites whose links count will be quality blogs and websites, and therefore only accept quality guest posts. Read more »

Dealing with ‘Online-Multiple Personality Disorder’

Category General Posted by

Transitioning into a career as a copywriter for a leading-edge SEO firm in 2008, with virtually no knowledge of Internet marketing besides the sponsored ads that come up on Google’s search results page, my digital ‘workspace’ soon became as messy as the admittedly untidy lawyer’s office I had recently vacated.  My shiny new Apple desktop was very quickly as cluttered with the articles and blog entries I had written, the links, news stories and websites I needed for future research, and a bunch of programs I had little or no understanding of, as my old veneered desktop had been.

Worse yet, I had very limited time using an Apple platform. . . . Still worse, the more I wrote and published on the web, the more mixed-up I became with the name and byline I was writing under. I was suffering from an ‘online multiple-personalities disorder.’ Read more »

Yet Another Great Guest Posting – Now at Scope for Money

Category Fun Posted by

When I was starting My Blog Guest, I promised to myself and to the community that I was going to make my best to help everyone I can. I am not sure if I have proved the expectations (it’s obviously better seen from outside) but I am still doing all I could.

Guest blogging contests are no exception – I would help anyone who approaches me with the genuine aim to give people exposure by participating in his / her guest posting contest.

Therefore we have quite a few contests running at MyBlogGuest right now!

Here’s a Secret Ingredient for Getting Your Guest Posts Published on Top Blogs

Category General, Success Stories Posted by

As an SEO specialist and affiliate marketer, guest posting is a part of my marketing strategy. In the last couple of months, I’ve been fortunate enough to have several guest posts published on top blogs with many subscribers.

I was curious to see if there was a pattern behind my success so I looked back at the posts and tried to find similarities between them. I think its a good idea to learn from your successes. By examining the bright spots, you can discover effective principles and strategies.

When I looked at my posts, I found that most of them were based on my own personal experiences. They were based on things that had happened in my life. I came to the conclusion that my experiences added a lot of value and helped me get published. Read more »
