MyBlogGuest is a fantastic way for bloggers and webmasters to get some content, often quality content, from a vast pool of talent.
However, not everyone goes about it the right way! Inspired by a recent conversation on the private forum of MyBlogGuest, here are some tips for bloggers and webmasters looking to get the most out of the forum.
Establish your blog first
Almost any blog can get guest posts on MyBlogGuest. But don’t expect a new blog to get blog posts from experienced bloggers!
There are two problems with new blogs looking for content. The first is that until a blog is established, very few people are likely to see that content. The second is that experienced bloggers, who are more likely to produce quality content, will assess your website for popularity and direct their efforts elsewhere.
From a writer’s point of view, a new blog is more likely to be abandoned than an established one. In addition, an established website will offer more benefits in both SEO terms and in reaching a new audience.
Establish your blog, and prove its worth, before you start asking for guest requests. You’ll find tones of links to articles which can help you with this on the MBG post roundup.
Write your request with care and skill
“I want someone to write a guest post on my website.”
The above sentence is not attractive. When I read guest post requests, I assume that a lack of sophistication in the writing reflects a lack of sophistication in the website. And I move on to the next guest post request. (There’s lots of them!)
Avoid arrogance – and excessive conditions!
“Your post should be between 750 and 751 words long (75/76 words to each paragraph) and must be of stupendous quality to be deigned worthy of appearance in terribleblog.freedomain.com. You may include one link in your bio which we may, if we feel like it, include in the article IF it includes no keywords which could in any way be related to you or your website. To include the article visit our website and fill in our 5 page submission form before emailing me the guest post in an SOMEWYRDFONT format, triple spaced and with 10 superb images for us to choose from. Anyway not filling in these requirements will be deleted immediately, will not appear on our pr0 blog and may be sued for wasting my valuable time.”
Okay, the above may be over the top but I have seen very arrogant requests posted by people with frankly mediocre blogs. Arrogance is going to cost you writers.
Focus on the writer AND strut your stuff
Instead, focus on how writing for you can help the writer. Outline the benefits. If you have a great audience, get tonnes of comments, thousands of links, hundreds of readers, appear on Google News, have a high pr now is the time to mention it. In fact why not do so in your title. I always stop and look when there is a major benefit in the title of the guest post request.
Finally, if you have an established blog and are looking for guest writers for tobacco, smoking, e-cigarettes or affiliate marketing – please contact me 🙂
