5 Actionable Guest Blogging Tips and Tricks to Follow In 2014


5 Actionable Guest Blogging Tips and Tricks to Follow In 2014

Guest Blogging Tip #1: Choose potential sites carefully

However you’re choosing potential sites to host your guest post, you need to spend some identifying them.

Take a look around the sites and work out whether there’s any interaction between the sites and its readers. Usually this is by way of comments and you need to check a few pages to see whether or not the comments are helpful and contribute to the post made.

It also helps if the owner and the guest poster answer any question or points raised in the comments.

Guest Blogging Tip #2: Lurk for a While

Much the same as you would do in a forum, go back to the site over the next few days and get better taste for it.

This does involve time – there’s no shortcut for that – but can make all the difference between finding a good sites or not.

Much like you wouldn’t spend time in a forum if you where the only one posting there, the same applies to sites where you are considering submitting a guest post.

Guest Blogging Tip #3: Contribute

Once you have got a feel for the site, the next step is to contribute to it.

That means adding your helpful comments to some of the posts.

Keep a note of when you have placed a comments and how long it takes to approve.

Sites that automatically approve comments are unlikely to have the kind of quality control standards that you’re going to need to make it worth your while submitting post.

Guest Blogging Tip #4: Check out the Guest Posting Guidelines

Sites that regularly accept guest posts usually have a page that tells you want they expect and how to send in your proposed post.

Some will be happy with just a title and some points of what you’re likely to cover. Other will prefer the complete article. It varies (remember, there are humans involved in this!)

Once you have read the guidelines, you have ready to submit either the full article or an outline. Which leads us on the final step:

Guest Blogging Tip #5: Write your guest post

This is maybe the easiest part of the process, assuming that you are already happy writing posts for your own sites and article sites or that you have created guest posts already.

Follow the guidelines for you chosen site including writing style and length of the guest post.

Make sure that you don’t pad out the post just to meet a word count – this should be amongst your best work, not some run of the mill stuff, as its showcase you.

The double check your proposed guests post for spelling and grammar before sending it off and waiting.

Video: Matt Cutts On SEO Drawbacks Using Responsive Design Vs Separate Mobile URLs


Matt Cutts Talks Responsive Design Impact On SEO

Is there an SEO disadvantage to using responsive design instead of separate mobile URLs?

Google’s head of search spam Matt Cutts from discussing it further in a new Webmaster Help Video in response to the user-submitted question:

Does a site leveraging responsive design “lose” any SEO benefit compared to a more traditional m. site?
John E, New York

Here is the video for you all to watch:

Video Transcription

Whenever you have a site that can work well for regular browsers on the desktop as well as mobile phones, there’s a couple completely valid ways to do it. One is called responsive design, and responsive design just means that the page works totally fine whether you access that URL with a desktop browser or whether you access that URL with a mobile browser. Things will rescale, you know, the page size will be taken into account, and everything works fine. Another way to do it is, depending on the user agent that’s coming, you could do a redirect so that a mobile phone – a mobile smartphone, for example – might get redirected to a mobile dot version of your page, and that’s totally fine as well.”

Read our guidelines for mobile-optimized sites: https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/

This includes things like having a rel=”canonical” from the mobile version to the desktop version, and stuff like that. In general, I wouldn’t worry about a site that uses responsive design losing SEO benefit(s) because by definition, you’ve got the same URL, so in theory, if you do a mobile version of your site, if you don’t handle that well and you don’t do the rel=’canonical’ and all those sorts of things, you might, in theory, divide the PageRank between those two pages, but if you’ve got responsive design, everything is handled from one URL, and so the PageRank doesn’t get divided. Everything works fine, so you don’t need to worry about the SEO drawbacks at all.

Bottom Line

I am thankful that he confirmed my some doubts on this. Having a good responsive design won’t harm your search engine results. But, however, if you use a separate mobile version in the form of m.domain.com, unless you manage every thing accurately, you could possibly harm your ranking.
