In all my Articles about Driving Traffic to your Blog, I have been mentioning about writing the Guest Posts, but now it’s the time to discuss this amazing opportunity that can do wonders for you, if you are intelligent enough to utilize it.
When you write a Guest Post, you are actually marketing yourself and your products. There are fair chances that you might get some backlinks in the process. What you do is, you write posts on different forums and put it out there on the internet is so that people read it and are influenced by it. Guest blogging helps you to showcase your skills as well as advertise your blog and brand to new audience. You need to remember that your aim is to impress an audience who doesn’t know you and your products. Your posts bring you the real chance to gain clients and traffic to your blog.
Guest blogging is the easiest method of getting publicity and building targeted traffic to your blog, and not only this, you get a boost in your reputation as an expert in your niche.
Guest posts can bring you ultimate rewards but you need to know how to construct a guest post worthy of appreciation. Here are some best tips that will boost your popularity and traffic via writing Guest posts!
Research Before you Start
You are representing your blog as an ambassador through your guest posts. Always keep this thing in mind. You cannot simply start with anything you have in your mind believing that it will be appreciated by the readers. No! Always start up with some authentic research on you are planning to write. I personally believe that “Not everyone of us can know everything” , so in spite of writing a total mess, it’s always a better approach to make your words, thought and articles reliable for your new readers. Spend 5-10 minutes looking for additional information that you can add to your guest post.
Focus on the Purpose of Post
To explain this, consider an example, what would you think about a person who keeps on speaking without even knowing what he actually wants to convey? A complete waste of time, Isn’t it? Try to learn things from your daily lives and apply them in your writing skills – in this case, Guest post. In the busy lives today, no one has time to waste on your irrelevant post which totally is out of focus from your topic. When writing with a purpose you need to make sure that you are leaving the readers with something informative. Don’t distract from your subject. Try to keep your readers bind with your every word.
Make your Post – a complete Package!
The best guest post is the one which serves its reader completely. This means that your post is enough for him to answer his questions of “what”, “why” and “how”! for example, if I was to write on how to shop reasonably, I would have addressed on what are the shopping strategies one should always remember, from where to shop and how to make the best use of money without wasting it. If you don’t address all key points in a guest post, then the readers might be left wanting much, leaving a bad impact on your popularity as well no profit for your blog too.
Propose To Relevant Blogs
Now this is what you can find tricky. Do you visit mashable.com to download music? Obviously not! Be wise enough for posting your guest post to relevant blogs. It has been seen that people take the guest posts so lightly and write a general post and submit it to 10 different blogs with different niches. Obviously no one will publish your so random post, out of connection with their niche and you will find you have just wasted your time in writing that. As I said earlier, be focused in choosing what to write and where to submit!
The Real Game!
We are done with the importance of Guest posts and have also discussed how to produce “productive” posts too. But obviously, our main target is to get a considerable amount of Traffic.
A good practice, which I follow too, is to create backlinks to your website in your content. Play a dual game by not deviating from the topic you are writing on and, at the same time, try to link something from your website in your post, which fits in it, rightly, like for example if you are writing a review on When Facebook timeline for Brands, you can refer your post that you wrote on the feedback of Facebook timeline on your blog. But again, while building backlinks to your website make sure you change the anchor text often. This means that you should not link back to your site using the same anchor text all the time. The reason you should do this is because this type of link building seems more accepted. Try new words to create hype for your blog to be visited!

Guest posting is certainly a great art you can use to benefit your image and your blog at the same time.

Similarly, if you are a blogger and write well on your blog, think out of scope now and try to bring more visitors with your remarkable, extraordinarily guest posts on other blogs!
