August was quick and fantastic with many of us getting some rest and going on vacation. It is hard to believe there’s one whole year of work ahead!
Now, no matter how many of us managed to have a rest, our guest blogging process never stopped. So here are a few guest articles that our most talented members managed to write and publish this past month.
Enjoy! Read more »

Now, get inspired: all the posts featured below vary in topics, voices and focus. We weren’t picking the most interesting or the most powerful ones. The main criteria should be variety!

There are quite some instructions available for those who are looking to write a guest post, for example, the post must be unique, the content should be of good quality, the wannabe guest authors should get in touch with ideas, and get his/her outline approved before jotting down the article, the guest posts must have more than 500, 600 or even 700 words, and once the post gets published, the guest authors must follow up by responding to the comments, and so on.
Do I have an issue with any of these instructions? Not really.
Except for … so many guidelines for the guest authors, but what about the bloggers who get to publish these articles on their blogs? There must be some decorum that they should follow; after all, they are getting some free and unique content for their blogs?

Rejection hurts. We all know the feeling. It’s especially painful when your overtures are not only rejected, but don’t even merit acknowledgement. Such is the painful reality of guest posting sometimes.
Recently though, the painful sting of rejection was turned to elation when the blogger who seemed to ignore the e-mail with my guest post ended up tweeting a link to the post after I put it up on my own blog.
In the end, this might be the best result. When I think about it, I got the SEO benefit of hosting the content on my blog, a social signal from a powerful Twitter account (which can help me rank in search) and I got the blogger in question to endorse my post and share it with his audience.

From an Internet marketing and SEO perspective, the concept of guest blogging truly is ideal for any small to medium size organization to succeed. It’s a common headache for many webmasters to achieve the same search engine rankings enjoyed by large, wealthy organizations whom are backed by media campaigns and other viral marketing strategies.
Search engine visibility strategies are evolving constantly. If you’re relying on organic search as your primary source of traffic, you’ll need to keep abreast of the Internet search technologies handed down by Google and Bing – for which you, me and everyone else simply must conform to.
The message of Google is not a new one and the recent panda update simply rams home the message for those who refused to listen. As of late, I have been receiving various spam emails containing numerous case studies from article spinning services and public blog syndicating networks claiming that their networks have not been affected by panda. Who are we to believe (or trust), the OFFICIAL word of Google or a bunch of case studies hashed together from slightly worried, low quality blog network owners? Read more »
