guest blogging

Guest blogging seem to be one of the best but stressful traffic strategies ever. No wonder most of us prefer blog commenting to guest blogging because it takes no time, 5 minutes is enough to read a blog post and drop a comment but guest blogging is on the contrary. Guest blogging is all about splashing your writing skills around the blogosphere and the best way of getting not just visitors but readers and subscribers. You should have noticed this by now; anytime a blog talks about generating traffic, guest blogging is always the first on the list because it’s the most effective of all. Do you want to get the best out of guest blogging? Try implementing these tips below.

NB: These tips below are not just ways to get the best out of your guest post but also way of getting the best out of your (personal) blog post. Let’s just call it a combination of both.

Killer Guest blogging Strategies

1. Compelling title

Regardless of your content, writing an attractive and compelling title is a way of attractive visitors to click and read your (quality) content. Bloggers are found of using an attractive title to bait readers in reading a content that is contrary to the language of title which is totally bad. Write a title that visitors can’t afford to overlook followed by quality content. This one of the best way to earn a visitor’s trust and make him a returning visitor.

2. Interactive content

Interactive content makes your blog post interesting. Many of us are SEO addicts like I am and we all want to have a high ranking on SERPS, this strategy has really channeled our blog post from your readers. Write for your readers and not for search engine alone, remember to include emotions and questions in your blog post. This will make your readers more interested in reading more of your posts and of course, a good way of making it lively.

Call to actions

Do you use call to actions? Call to actions is commonly found at the end of your blog post usually in a question format. It’s a great and perfect way to encourage comments thereby getting the best out of your blog post. If you’re not using them I think you should start implementing them on your blog, it’s not just a way of encouraging comments but a perfect way of building your readers and earning their trust.

4. Reply to comments

Actually, I can’t do without replying to comments because I’m addicted to it and I take it as my hobby. I’ve seen situations where guest bloggers submits quality guest post but the mistake they made was ignoring their readers. I don’t think you’ll be welcomed back as a guest blogger on the blog if you try to submit another guest post. I’ll also do the same because I don’t want my readers to leave my blog with unanswered questions.

5. Promote your guest post

Regardless of the traffic of the blog you’re submitting your guest post on, promoting your guest post should be a tradition. That you submitted a guest post on a blog (that is not yours) doesn’t mean you shouldn’t promote it; I’m sure most of us omit this step.  Try as much as possible to tell your followers on social media about your guest post. I don’t see anything hard in it and it doesn’t take much time. If you’re in this shoe then it’s high time you promoted your guest post, your blog post is not the only thing you have to promote you know?


Like I said above, these are not just tip on getting the best out of your guest post, you can also implement them on your blog and definitely, you’ll make your blog go viral. Guest blogging is not just a traffic strategy but it’s the perfect way of getting safe backlinks to your blog. There are many significance of guest blogging, are you a guest blogger and is guest blogging one of your major traffic strategies? I’d love to know if you do promote your guest posts. Well there are many of us there that prefers guest blogging to blog commenting. Which one do you think is better?

  12. Another reason why I prefer to blog comment, is that with guest blogging, there are way too many restrictions, and/or “must have’s.” With a blog comment, well, all it takes is a nice formulated response that is related to the article, nothing complicated about that! Good article I must say!
    Chavol recently posted…Reasons Why Social Media Does NOT WorkMy Profile

  13. I prefer Guest blogging, but the both (guest blogging and blog commenting) are usefull when your backlinks sources are safe.For example , it\’s easy to apply A/B testing on one or two weeks with these two kings of strategies (blog commenting and guest blogging) and see what works best.I suggest that, because the objective here is to have best conversion rate.

    • You’re on my side Marc but of course they are both useful for getting safe backlinks. Oh! i understand what you mean by split testing them and i noticed that the results are (not really) equal but on different criteria. When you submit a guest post on a blog, you’ll get 100% conversions from guest blogging (it worth’s the time you spend in writing the guest post) and you’ll get 5% from blog commenting and dropping 20 blog comments lets say in 3-4 days it approximately a guest post. The only difference is that most blog post are nofollow and you won’t get a link juice from the comment but on guest blogging, there’s always a link juice flowing through the author bio and the can increase a blog’s PR.

  14. Good post. Guest blogging/Article for seo has to be one of the most effective ways of link building.

  15. Well i think that promoting guest post is a good way with which we will get traffic as well as there will be great effect to the person who wrote guest post for us . With this there will become good relations with guest author . This is what i think .

      i’m glad you found this helpful, I can’t wait to see your guest post on this blog and i’m sure you’re going to love it too. You should promote your blog post more, all i’m trying to say is at least let your followers on fb or twitter know that you did a guest post, they’ll hop over to the blog and drop a comment and you’ll get a closer connection as if you promote it, new readers will also be pointed back to your blog through your author bio. I’ll advice you to focus more on promoting your blog.

    First of all i must say thanks to you for sharing a useful information.
    When i read this article then i fully enjoyed. actually i am not professional blogger but then also i like your 5 ways. but in my opinion i always prefer to content which is unique and quality for our blog. and i am following, am getting +ve …..well i will also try of your ways.

  20. I find guest posting quite difficult, whenever I write a good post I wish I’d put it on my blog

  21. Hi Gilbert,

    Well, guest posting is an effective strategy, indeed. It is also difficult and stressful. That is why a lot of people have a hard time with guest posting. They are in a constant state of “about to start” guest posting. Sometimes one little block stops them to do it.

    My problem with guest posting is… pictures. When you submit a guest, post, for example, do you need to explain to the blog owner where did you take your picture? Do you need to show him or her the link to where you took the picture? Do you need to prove in some way that the picture is yours?

    Title and content
    Magnetic titles are good but not enough, indeed. After some magnetic or killer headlines followed by miserable content, your readers will run and never return. Even worse. More and more posts have titles that are obviously crafted to be “magnetic” or “killer”. Whenever I see a title like this, I avoid that post. I think the title must be interesting and relevant to the niche. Unfortunately more and more titles tend to be “shocking” in a desperate effort to attract attention.

    Interactive content? Very good idea. Questions and emotions are a great way to make your content interactive. Together with some good call to actions (by the way, how many calls to action do you think is safe to place in a blog post? I saw posts with 4 calls to action or more inside a blog post) they create a very dynamic and attractive environment that entice readers to take action. Good idea, indeed.

    Have a wonderful day
    Silviu recently posted…The Best Twitter Tools to Get More Traffic. JustretweetMy Profile

    • Hi Silviu,

      You’re right, effective but difficult.

      I don’t see anything wrong in pictures and there’s no need for any explanation, well it depends on the blog and the blog author. Some blogs might require you to give the source of the picture some credits by dropping a link to it’s source while some bloggers hate tons of links in their blog post.

      My pictures are from google safe search, the pictures are license free so there’s no need for giving anyone credit but if they are downloaded from picture directories like “freedigitalphotos” or “flickr” then a credit is required. Though i prefer google safe search but if I’m not satisfied then I’ll hop over to directories and use any picture of my choice followed by a due credit.

      I’ve seen bloggers using a killer title and a miserable content like you said. this is the reason why i used “quality” in bracket in order not to mislead readers into writing just a killer title.

      Number of call to actions? Most people sprinkle CTAs (even more than 4) allover the content, it’s a good way of creating interactions. If call to actions is used at the end of a blog post then it should be a maximum of two in order to avoid confusing readers and making the blog post a quiz but if sprinkled allover the content, then number of call to actions doesn’t matter.
      Have a great week ahead.

    Guest posting is the best way in this modern age to build a strong link. Every online marketer should give more importance to guest posting. Your post contains some great points, which can be very effective for all the link builder.

  27. Replying to comments is a very important and good thing when we are doing guest posting as it help us to connect with more and more audience.

  28. Agreed! Replying comment is really a good view to engage audience.

    I prefer the combination of both. Quest blogging gives you both back link and traffic. Commenting usually only traffic as most of comment links are nofollow.

  31. Nice suggestions Gilbert. Guest posting is the best way to get the quality backlinks into your blog without actually violating any of Google’s policy. All points are quite basic but need to be followed to get the best out of your guest post.

  34. Hello Gilbert,

    Yes, Gilbert, Guest blogging is one of the best ways to get instant traffic and strong link for blogs. But it is really tough to write an awesome (actually Killer) guest post. But you have described the whole ideas beautifully.

    So many thanks for your great ideas.

  35. Glad to see this post. My priority is to look for high quality sites to do the guest posting, and I saw your post. One lucky gal here. Thx for the nice info.

  36. Norm Sanchez says:

    It’s definitely better for SEO purposes to guest blog rather than blog commenting but I think a combination of both works rather well. I would much rather write a targeted article with a couple of links and submit it to a regular blog which allows guest posts instead of submitting it to an article directory. I also know for sure that depending on the blog you write your guest post for, you stand a much better chance of getting more traffic to your site than through blog commenting.

  37. Amazing article, I’ve just started to do blog commenting and am noticing very slight SEO results and traffic generation. I must consider guest blogging as I’m now beginning to see the big picture of how much potential there is, especially for traffic generation. Thank you for this valuable information.

  38. Thanks Shawn,
    Blog commenting really have a hand in traffic and seo bt guest blogging works better, good luck as you implement it and have a wonderful day

    Hey Gilbert,
    Nice written article. All points mentioned by you are really important.
    I would like to divide all tasks in percentage.

    Title: 30%
    Without catchy title no one read its contents

    Content: 30%
    Content is king as usual

    Call of action and reply to comments: 20%
    Readers are happy as they get noticed. And new reader takes interest if engagement of author and readers is healthy.

    Promotion of post: 20%
    Without promotion, no one will read your post, despite it has enough meat.

  44. Júlia Leite says:

    Hey Gilbert,

    What an amazing article!!! I’d say that is the most well written that I saw untill today. The strategies are soooo correct and, joining your article with Sagar’s comment, it just stays perfect.

    Answer to your question, I prefer, by far, guest blogging. But only if the author does all the things you said in your article. There are some guest blogging that, despite the quality of the writing, they just don’t get my attention because they fail in other things, specially in the interaction with their followers. You can write a perfect text, with a perfect title but, sometimes, our public doesn’t see the world the way we do, so it’s perfeclty normal that doubhts appear. When that happens and the follower post a comment with a question and doesn’t receive an answer, it’s almost certain that he will quit reading the blog. And there’s more: in guest blogging world, people like to change experiences, skills and opinions. The only way to do that is with interaction. They read something, say something, the author replies, the follower likes the answer, tell a friend about the experiencie and, finally, that friend joins to the discussion and… voilà: one more viewer :)

    Anyway, all of this to say that, in all the strategies you pointed, I prefer interaction ;)

    What do you think?

    • It’s just like you read my mind Julia, Interaction is my favorite aspect and I’m very good at it. Writing a blog post and referring to them (just like you’re talking to them but in a written version) and also replying to comments.

      Now i love the way you calculated those pinch of strategies. First of all, guest blogging is better by far like you said. I was once in the shoes of having unanswered questions and believe me, i might not visit that blog unless i find something catchy in it. Simultaneously, this means interaction is the root of all these points mentioned above and without it, the reason for guest blogging might not be achieved.

      I guess i need to put an extra chain to your point there,……..friend joins the discussion and also tells another bunch of friends and those bunch of friends told their bunch of friends too…etc that’s what i call viral

      Have a wonderful weekend Julia

    once your guest post goes live, you just have to promote it as possible as you can.

      Submitting guest post better than my blog post? I do that a lot to an extent that I’ll be tempted to publish it on my blog but the best approach of becoming a successful blogger and building a good reputation is splashing your writing skills around the blogosphere.

  58. This is a great list that should be used by every blog. I’ve seen blog owners that reply to comments a year later. I don’t think the person posting the comment will wait a year for your reply, especially if it is a question needing an answer. The title is the most important thing on any blog post as it’s usually the first thing the reader looks at.

  59. I am just getting into guest blogging. I think it’s a great way to cross promote businesses. The most important things are to provide relevant information to the site that you are a guest on. Being able to engage the readers so they comment is very important. Make sure that the guest blogger follows the blog so that they can follow up directly with the commenters.

  60. Guest blogging can be very stressful.

    You spend time writing an article, send it to someone that has agreed to post it, then you have to chase them up. The whole process can be very time consuming.

    The benefit over blog commenting is that you are guaranteed a Dofollow link back to your site – that isnt always the case when commenting on blogs.

  70. You are right to have started with the title which is like to main entrance into your article. If it’s poor, you get low CTR. Hot titles make the post hot too.
