  2. quite popular today, especially among youngsters. As the name indicates, a
  3. guest blogger, is one who blogs for some other website. In return, the guest
  4. blogger receives a few backlinks, which he can use to popularize his website or
  5. blog. Once he posts the guest post or blog on another website, he cannot claim
  6. ownership for the same.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  8. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  10. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Do you get paid for this job? Yes, mostly! When guest
  11. posting was first introduced, the blogger used to receive only backlinks in
  12. return. However, nowadays, many websites give you money for your posts. If your
  13. posts are attractive, and have the potential to increase traffic to that
  14. particular website, you get paid well. These websites that pay you for your
  15. content are known as paid guest posting sites.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  17. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  19. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;This article will tell you more about how you can earn money
  20. from a paid guest posting site, and how you can make the most of it.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  22. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  24. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Stay Away from Sites that ask you to Pay to Guest-Post for
  25. them&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  27. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  29. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;While you may be looking for a paid social guest-posting
  30. opportunity, you may across some websites or blogs that ask you to pay to get
  31. your post published. We recommend you stay away from these sites. These sites
  32. don&#39;t focus on the quality of the content that is getting published on their
  33. site. Instead, they only focus on the payment. As long as the blogger pays
  34. them, these site owners accept all types of content.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  36. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  38. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;You look for a paid guest posting gig, because the backlinks
  39. can help to promote your brand and blog, don&#39;t you? Therefore, you should be
  40. careful to avoid these sites that demand payment from you, as they can cause a
  41. dent in your brand image.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  43. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  45. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Check the Site for its Style to Write Relevant Guest Blogs&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  47. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  49. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;The different search engines will tell you about the sites
  50. that require guest bloggers. Go through each of these sites, and choose the
  51. ones whose terms &amp;amp; conditions are clear. Some good sites will take time to
  52. accept your post, but it worth waiting for their approval, than writing for
  53. sub-standard sites. Before writing your posts, please check about the niches
  54. offered on those sites.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  56. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  58. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;You can note the niches you are comfortable with so that you
  59. can know how much time you can devote to writing guest blogs. It is highly
  60. recommended that you go through a few articles posted on those sites,
  61. understand the style, and know the articles&#39; popularity. This will give you an
  62. idea of how to pitch your blog to the administrators for approval.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  64. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  66. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Make your Guest Posts Attractive&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  68. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  70. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Nothing sells better than good content. So, if you want to
  71. make decent money from paid guest blogging gigs, you have to be very careful
  72. about your content quality. Link back the post to your blog, so that readers
  73. can visit your blog, thereby increasing your traffic in the bargain. Make your
  74. blogs interesting and relevant. Give a glimpse of your confident personality in
  75. your blogs, and encourage them to respond by visiting the link of your blog.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  77. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  79. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Win-Win for Everyone&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  81. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;You guest post for them on their blog and they in turn guest
  82. post for you- what&#39;s not to like? Guest blogging provides awesome benefits for
  83. anyone who chooses to participate. There are probably more than 7 benefits but
  84. here is a list of my favorite reasons to guest post or guest host a blog.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  86. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  88. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;1) Cast a Wider Net Over Target Audiences&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  90. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;All of these benefits stem from posting on blogs that target
  91. the same niche market as you. What does this mean for you? As a guest blogger,
  92. you&#39;re reaching a new audience that actually wants to hear what you have to say
  93. and you&#39;re increasing traffic to your website at the same time. As a network
  94. marketer you could try niche specific forums such as and
  97. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  99. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;2) Builds Web Presence&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  101. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;The more you&#39;re on the web the more people will begin to
  102. perceive that you&#39;re an &quot;expert.&quot; You&#39;ve already got one vote of
  103. confidence - the blogger for whom you&#39;re posting trusts you enough to let you
  104. talk to his readers. Try to guest post on authority websites if you can. These
  105. opportunities are slim because authority sites get hundreds of requests to
  106. guest blog each day but it&#39;s worth a shot. Getting approval to post on an
  107. authority site represents a big notch on your belt. You can always try to guest
  108. on less competitive blogs at first.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  110. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  112. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;3) Find Guests of Your Own&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  114. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;By posting on other blogs you have an &quot;in&quot; to get
  115. relevant bloggers to write for you. It&#39;s natural that these guests might back
  116. link to your page from their blog so their followers can see what they wrote on
  117. your page. Quality backlinks are obviously desirable for SEO purposes. Oh yeah
  118. and getting more traffic to your blog.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  120. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  122. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;4) Gain Lots of Exposure&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  124. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Below are some ways you can build exposure using this
  125. technique for other bloggers:&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  127. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  129. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;* You can make money on guest posts.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  131. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;* You can make money on shared ad revenues.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  133. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;* Gain exposure to new readers.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  135. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  137. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;A good place to start is aiming to post on 10 different
  138. blogs each month.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  140. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  142. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;5) An Exercise in Excellence&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  144. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;A benefit of guest posting on other blogs is that you&#39;re
  145. writing outside your bubble and able to see how your content measures up
  146. against others in your industry. If the blog you&#39;re moonlighting on typically
  147. has a lot of responsive readers and your guest post gets very little attention,
  148. you&#39;ll know what to do.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  150. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  152. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;6) Get More Social Media Activity&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  154. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Another awesome benefit of guest posting is that you&#39;ll see
  155. the level of activity on your social media sites surge. This phenomenon makes
  156. sense. You post somewhere new, get more exposure and find more friends.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  158. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;&lt;o:p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  160. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;7) Fun Factor&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  162. &lt;p class=&quot;MsoNormal&quot;&gt;Honestly, it&#39;s fun to guest post or host a guest on your
  163. blog. It&#39;s good for readers to see you change it up and good for you to
  164. challenge yourself by posting on other people&#39;s blogs. You&#39;re in the business
  165. of networking - you love meeting new people and making new connections. The
  166. next time you find yourself hitting the proverbial writer&#39;s block or find your
  167. blogging juices dry-up, get out of your bubble and guest post somewhere else
  168. for a day.&lt;o:p&gt;&lt;/o:p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</content><link rel='replies' type='application/atom+xml' href='' title='Post Comments'/><link rel='replies' type='text/html' href='' title='0 Comments'/><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href=''/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href=''/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='' title='How to Make the Most of Paid Guest Posting Sites'/><author><name>Shakeel-1</name><uri></uri><email></email><gd:image rel='' width='32' height='32' src='//'/></author><thr:total>0</thr:total></entry><entry><id>,</id><published>2022-09-18T04:39:00.000-07:00</published><updated>2022-09-18T04:39:35.319-07:00</updated><title type='text'>Simple SEO Checks For Your Website</title><content type='html'>&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;Search engine optimisation is a term that can make grown men break out in a cold sweat.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;It&#39;s one of those subjects that no one quite seems to understand and experts are reluctant to explain.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Well fear not for your knight(ess) in shining armour is here to save the day.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;There are 5 very simple SEO&amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;;/a&gt; checks you can make right now. Open up another browser window and pull up your website.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Ready?&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;OK, first things first. Let&#39;s take a look at your website structure:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;1. Looks aren&#39;t everything&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Take a look at your website (this one is especially pertinent for all owners of custom built websites) does it look flashy with amazing images that fill you with pride?&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;The problem with custom builds is that, sometimes, looks are at the expense of SEO, especially if you&#39;ve been seduced by flash. Yes, it looks lovely but unless you&#39;ve got some magic going on in the background coding it&#39;s not going to help your search engine optimisation one jot.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Template websites (such as those created on the Word Press platform) tend to be more SEO friendly from the start.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;2. Keywords&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Remember this post is all about simple SEO checks&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;;/a&gt; so I&#39;m not going to delve into the realms of thorough keyword research.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Take a minute to jot down the top 3 words that you would use as a Google search to find your website.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;For example I would choose copywriter, freelance copywriter and possibly Suffolk copywriter to get a geographical tag in there. Next ask a friend or colleague to do the same, in fact ask as many people as you like to do the same and eventually you&#39;ll have a list of keywords.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;You may not think that&#39;s very scientific but it will give you keywords that real people would search under for you.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Next you do the hard bit and work out how competitive they are and which ones are the best to tackle (you&#39;ll need to use something like Google&#39;s free keyword research tool for this).&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;It&#39;s also a good idea, before you make any changes to your site, to search under the terms you decide on and write down your current ranking so you can watch in awe as your site rises ever higher.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;That&#39;s your keywords done, (remember - this should always be done before your website is designed) so what&#39;s next? Well it&#39;s back to your website.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;3. All present?&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;If you want your site to rank for your identified keywords they need to be in your copy. That doesn&#39;t mean cramming them into every sentence on the page. But rather weave them into the text in a couple of places.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Your headings and sub headings are always a good place to put them and in your title tags.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;OK, so now you&#39;ve got your words in your website copy, what&#39;s next?&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;4. Power content&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;The next thing to do is write a page or blog post centred on your keywords (one for each keyword). Again that doesn&#39;t mean stuffing, but using your keywords wisely (e.g. in a post of about 200-300 words, use your keyword 2 or 3 times).&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Try and use it in your headings to give it more prominence. Once you&#39;ve published these on your website you can then use them on your social media sites too (e.g. your Facebook page) and link back to your site using the keywords as your anchor text links.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;With me so far? For the next bit you&#39;ll need a bit of help.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;5. Get votes&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Every link that comes into your website acts like a vote of confidence in Google&#39;s eyes. The more you have, the more authoritative you are.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;So ask friends and colleagues to link to you (like a link exchange) using contextual anchor text links.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;OK, so these 5 tips aren&#39;t the most comprehensive SEO techniques but they can and will make a difference. So what have you go to lose? Give them a try and the come back and let me know how you get on.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</content><link rel='replies' type='application/atom+xml' href='' title='Post Comments'/><link rel='replies' type='text/html' href='' title='0 Comments'/><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href=''/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href=''/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='' title='Simple SEO Checks For Your Website'/><author><name>Shakeel-1</name><uri></uri><email></email><gd:image rel='' width='32' height='32' src='//'/></author><thr:total>0</thr:total></entry></feed>
