I am writing a guest post for the last three weeks for my websites. I have not yet written that many guest posts in the previous four years. Well, you know that posting on other sites takes a lot of time. But why I bother spending my quality time writing for different blogs?
The reason is that I think it is one of the best strategies to grow my blog.
What is Guest Posting?
Well, for those who do not know about guest posting, it means posting on other websites or blogs as a guest writer. I also allow other people to guest post on my audience because it is a great way to connect with other bloggers. For a long time, I overlooked the fact that it can significantly help grow my blog. So, I hope that you will not do it. There are following three reasons that it can help build your online influence.
Helps Build Relationships
Well, we need content for our blog, and quality content takes time. But why you should create such quality content and post on other blogs? The answer is simple, “to build a relationship with other bloggers”.
Do you know that most of the conversations on the internet happen because of the bloggers? That is how the bloggers influence the market, and it is good to have friendship with them. By making other bloggers, your friends, you are increasing your influence on social media.
Search Engine Rankings
Another great reason to guest post on the website is: it helps in boosting your search engine rankings. When you post on another blog or website, the blogger should include a link to your blog in the post. So, in a way, you are building high-quality backlinks for your website. These backlinks help in improving the search rankings of your website.
Help You Introduce to New Audience
The third reason is that it helps you introduce yourself to an established community. You can share your thoughts with the community to get a chance to connect with new people. If you can do it right, it will be beneficial for the growth of your blog.
Try to add value to your readers in your articles. You will see that the readers of the blog will convert to your fans. Do not try to sell yourself, instead focus on adding value for the readers.
Allowing Others to Guest Post on Your Website
Well, you should also allow others to guest post on your website. If you are guest posting on other blogger’s sites, then why not allow them to post on your blog. It is the best way to develop a mutual relationship with other bloggers.
According to SEO experts, creating content for other bloggers is more valuable than creating for your own site. However, there is doubt that it is the best strategy for reaching more people.
Well, you should guest post on other websites and allow them to post on yours. It not only helps build a relationship with bloggers but also improves search engine rankings.
