Get unlimited new and relevant guest blogging opportunities
Guest blogging is not dead.
Guest blogging is a win-win engagement for both the publisher and the blogger. Collaboration leads to growth and everyone wins. But this can be a tough task.
The most important step is to first one: To find relevant publishers looking for guest blogs. This hack solves that problem. We will use three search strings for this hack, where we will submit your blog in directories and post to relevant blogs.
Step 1: Go to Google and search, “Submit your blog”. This will get you to the links where you can submit your blog to a specific website or directory or a publication.
Step 2: Open the relevant links in the SERP and submit your blog entry.
Step 3: Now we will use a second search string for guest blog posts in your domain. Go to Google and search, “Submit your post” AND “your keyword”. Ex. “Submit your post” AND “Digital Marketing”.
Step 4: Open relevant links in SERP, you will land-up on pages of publishers where you can submit your blogs. Write a good post on the topic mentioned in the page and submit.
Step 5: Go to Twitter and Search, “Looking for” AND “Guest bloggers”, you will land up on tweets where people are looking for guest bloggers.
Step 6: Now sort relevant tweets, reach out to them and submit your blog.
To get traffic to your website, the most important part of guest blogging is submitting to the right audience. Otherwise, it is just branding and vanity metrics for your startup’s growth journey. So in this hack, we’re basically looking for keywords which bloggers will put in their blog if they want guest blogs, which is eventually nothing but thinking in their shoes.
CASE 25-27% of the traffic on my websites is driven by my guest blogs. I’ve designed a pipeline using the Google search string and Twitter search string which drives around 10 new guest blogging opportunities every month. These are very few blogs, less work, but bigger publications. You can start with smaller publications and used the published blogs as case studies for bigger ones as you climb up the ladder.
