Guest posting is A- Very useful for getting high-quality backlinks, B- a little time consuming. But I’ve identified it as one of the top things I can do for my websites visibility. If you’re able to write and have examples of your writing then you might find a home guest-posting at some of these high authority websites.
Start applying and getting the ability to post on these websites – on the free market a link from these sites will run you $100 – $1,000 with a lot of them landing in the $300 dollar range, so it helps to realize the importance of backlinking through guest posting and doing it yourself instead. That is if you’re up for a little work! What I wanted to curate here is not just ‘sites that accept guest posts,’ but sites where you can get a login and post on a regular basis. So here it goes:

Things to consider when posting
- Content still matters! Make it good.
- Read their blog posts before reaching out- If there’s a pitching process, pitch it to them – cater to them.
- Make sure to proof your posts before going live – especially if you don’t have access to edit later (it might be sad if you can’t fix a glaring mistake and it’ll make you less likely to promote.)
- Promote your posts when they go live. (Even just one tweet will help your link index faster.)
- Use contextual links and make the link back to your site critical to the meaning and significance of the post. If it’s incidental and awkward-seeming within the greater gist of the post – it will potentially be removed.
