The Engaging SEO – A Highly Personal View On SEO, Content And People

Category General Posted by

from-myblogguest-userFrom Ann: Here’s a great and very personal story of one of our members Karl Hindle’s journey into the world of SEO and Internet marketing. This article is courtesy of MyBlogGuest Articles Gallery, the best source of free unique content for your blog – and that’s the great sample of what you can get using it!

In 2001 I sold a business I had spent 15 years putting together and building up. It was successful and employed over 20 people, however the time had come to move on, sell up and try something new. After the stress of negotiating and finalizing the sale, it came as a bright relief to have money in the bank and more importantly, my time to do as I pleased – I was specifically prohibited from working for 6 months, and life was good.

Beginner Bloggers: How #MyBlogGuest Helps New Bloggers

Category General Posted by

Sign in to our Twitter chat and ask questions =>#MyBlogGuest Twitter chat

The worst thing of today’s online marketers and website owners is that they seldom target long-term objectives, therefore “growing together” is a hard-to-understand concept for most of them!

They need traffic today, so all they are spending energy on is trying to reach out to influencers (as people who can give them exposure today) – instead of finding your *peers* (people who will build your future and become influencers *together* with you).

I am a huge believer in the “growing together” concept.

When I started ~6 years ago, first people who noticed my blog and started commented were not Rand Fishkin or Jim Boykin (sadly but obviously). They were new bloggers like me! We started helping each other by passing along cool opportunities, sharing each others’ content and commenting on each others’ blogs.

Now that 6 years passed, most of us have grown into established bloggers. Each of us has the name, reputation, voice and communities. We’ve become influencers.

We are not that close any more simply because we got too busy BUT we still know we will help each other no matter what. We’ve never met each other but I will always remember, that’s thanks to them that I achieved anything in my career. Read more »

October 2013 Guest Posts Roundup #MyBlogGuest

Category Round-ups Posted by

Ann_and_Sana_at_pubconOctober was a bit different from the previous months. Though it was same busy or even busier than usually, it was a bit more exciting. We introduced our eBooks Gallery, shared tips for authors how to find blogs for their articles, we gathered an amazing collection of wisdoms from our mastermind discussions at Google Plus community.

And the first time MyBlogGuest was presented at pubcon in Las Vegas! It was a good experience for us. Let’s hope to get use of it in future!

We’d like to thank Deborah Anderson who was there at the pubcon exhibition hall explaining people what MBG is and how it works. We’d like also to thank our awesome moderators who covered our backs at that time: Olga Goldina, Don Sturgill, Shannon Hutcheson, Phil Turner, and Min Min.

And here we go: our monthly guest posts round up! Enjoy!

What Are #MyBlogGuest Paid Features? Pro Membership Explained

Category #MyBlogGuest Twitter Chat Posted by

Join our Twitter chat and ask questions =>MyBlogGuest Twitter chat

MyBlogGuest was started as a free forum with the idea of connecting people for mutual guest blogging benefits. It was never meant to grow that big. It was never meant to be monetized. It was funded from my services.

Then we started features that people needed or were asking for. That’s when we started paid memberships in order to cover development and maintenance costs. None of the initially free features has become paid. And we added some free features as well.

Free Features

If you seek free content for your blog, all parts of the site are FREE for you. You can get free articles, free infographics, free eBooks. Our guest blogging WordPress plugin is another absolutely free and cool feature any publisher can install to get an easy access to our database of free content.

We had an indepth chat on free features previously: MyBlogGuest Free Features for the Guest *Author*

Basically, as a free member, you get an access to the variety of free stuff including:

  • Forum and forum subscriptions (that send you email updates of new requests)

  • Free hand-picked lists (like “Featured opportunities” list that gets constantly updated)
  • Inbox (together with “Follow up” reminders that allow you to scale your outreach)
  • Free “Help needed” forum where you can get extra social media shares for your guest posts (This feature has been later expanded to a separate free platform called Viral Content Buzz)
  • “Friendlist” is a cool feature that helps you organize and keep in touch with your MBG connections

PRO membership

PRO membership was designed for guest authors who seek getting further educated and placing more guest articles. It’s meant to actually turn you into a content marketing and guest blogging *pro*.
