Guest Posting : The Road to Authority

Don't Be Scared To Share Homie!
step 1step 2step 3step 4

Guest Posting as of now is the most popular way of gaining exposure for your blog and you.  I recently wrote a post on guest posting correctly and this is a follow up article authority guest posting. The best thing that I love about guest posting is that it exposes your blog and you to a whole new audience which gives you the opportunity to bring in loyal readers.

With Google Author Rank around the corner, you should really start to think about writing some guest posts for some of the authority sites in your niche.

Here I’m going to list out some of the reasons why you should start guest posting right now.

Earning Attention from other Blog Authors and their Readers

Attention With Guest PostingEveryone needs some connection to get ahead in life. Well, it applies to your blog and you too. The first guest post is always the most difficult. The thing about the guest posting is that, when you are able to create a quality article and publish it on an authority site, the other bloggers will gradually start to pay attention to you and your blog and what you have to share.

The best thing about publishing your content on an authority site is that you are exposing yourself to thousands of visitors that visit the site daily. When you think about it, very tempting, isn’t it ?

In addition to this, when you post something in the future in your own blog, the other bloggers would automatically share your content in the blogging community if they like it. That increases the opportunity of bringing more loyal readers to your blog.

Improves SEO for your own blog

Believe it or not, it improves the SEO of your own blog. Google loves authors who publish on high authority sites. It is the sole purpose of the Google Author Rank. Remember, when you guest post you should see to it, that you can add your Google Authorship Markup to that article.

You may not realize, but you can probably get hundreds of backlinks to your site by publishing on an authority site.

Let me explain.

Suppose you have written a great article and you have published it on an authority site. Since that site is visited by thousands, you will at least get 50 comments.

Assuming that you reply to each, then you yourself would have 50 comments with your domain been linked to from that very page. Think about it. There’s no way you could have left 50 comments naturally within that short time on an authority site.

Five or six guest posts on a couple more authority sites like that and you’re on your way to the top.

Automatic Content Marketing

CommentLuv PremiumEveryone has their own way of marketing their content. My way is guest posting and commenting on CommentLuv enabled blogs. Think about it.

As I have mentioned above, if you have 50 comments on a single page (commentluv enabled), then think about all the article links from your blog you can provide on that page (provided you keep posting quality content on your own blog).

This method also has some other advantages. Many articles on your blog would be fed the link juice directly from that authority site which itself increases your authority to a much higher level.

Try doing all this naturally. It will take months. But with a quality guest post, you can achieve all this within a couple of weeks.

Think about all the points I have mentioned.

So, what are you waiting for ? Start guest posting right now.

Don’t forget to share your views in the comment section.

    I should really start guest blogging more often… I haven’t published a guest post in over four months or so. Thanks for motivating me to get out there and do this, Lahaul!

      Thanks a lot, Ian. Since I have some free time now because of my holidays I thought I should write some guest posts now. I don’t get enough time when I have college.

    Great post, Garen. Guest posting is definitely a great way to gain authority quickly and get more backlinks and massive traffic all in one fell swoop. When I did my fist guest post, I was completely amazed at the sheer amount of traffic and subscribers I got from it. In 2013, I’ll definitely be focusing more on guest posting and video creation. These will be my two main traffic focuses and I’m sure the rewards will be great. Thanks for sharing this post with our BizSugar community. I appreciate it!

      Hey Ti,

      I really like Bizsugar :). Been using it for a couple weeks or so, but it’s great. Yes guest posting is probably my favorite way to get backlinks and brand exposure. Yeah, I have done a number of videos and they work well to mix up your website or blog :)

    Well guest posting is definitely the right way to climb up the ladder. Apart from this, many blogs allow dofollow links for the registered users (guest bloggers) therefore passing the link juice directly.

      Hey Raaj,

      Yes guest posting is one of my favorite ways to build links and relationships. Blog commenting on CommentLuv blogs is also great. Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
