Can you believe it’s been over 2 months since our last link tip?!
I’ll be honest – when I created this series in January, it thrived on click bait. I played to the fact that no SEOs divulged their link sources. The tactic worked – I get dozens of ‘thank you’ emails a week and honestly, I love it.
Genuinely, from the bottom of my heart, I want to provide you guys as much value as I can (I think if you take a look around this blog you’ll agree).
As I looked back on some of the original tips I realize they were shit – I apologize for that. In my defense, when I posted them, I thought they were good tips. I mean, you know damn well how fast SEO changes.
So, in order to make up it, I’m giving you some really powerful guest blog opportunities.
Why guest blogs? Because in my humble opinion, they’re the easiest way to get links from powerful sites. Our site was quite literally built on guest posting (see for yourself: SEM Rush)
I truly believe every website owner who wants to increase organic traffic should be regularly guest posting. Here’s a list of 5 killer blogs to get you started.
Before you contact them, understand this…
These are high quality websites, with content editors – they take their blogs seriously. I can not guarantee link placements because you’ll need a great piece of content to get accepted.
PLEASE DO NOT WASTE THEIR TIME IF YOU DON’T HAVE A GREAT PIECE OF CONTENT TO SUBMIT!
TweakYour Biz is a powerful business blog that does over 300,000 page views per month. They accept guest post pitches and the process is rather painless if you approach them properly. My piece went through a few edits before going live so make sure you’ve got a quality piece of content to submit.
I’d been following the guys (Will and Kyle) at Startup Bros for a while before writing for them. They write about building online businesses and have built a tremendous platform and following. The post I wrote has driven over 1,000 visits in less than a month. They have high expectations for content submissions so please, don’t come at them with some bull sh!t article.
ASU as in Arizona State University. Arizona State University as in .edu, aka the holy grail of trust worthy links – not to mention a nice fat contextual one. The blog is themed around non profit businesses – you’ll need to be a little creative and come up with a way to create your content around a non profit theme (I wrote about non profit marketing strategy).
I love Business 2 Community because they syndicate our content. This relationship took some time to build and began as an outreach email and a few one off guest posts. Once you’re accepted as an author, they give you a backend login to self publish your own content. B2C is great for those of you with clients looking for brand exposure on a high visibility website.
Mainstreethost is a digital marketing agency that has a ton of link equity pointing to it. They’ve built that equity through consistent creation of quality blog content. The team there is incredibly friendly and responsive – if you’ve got a good piece of marketing content, I suggest you submit it here.
