Most of us are aware that guest posting is a great way to not only get a high quality back-link for SEO, but also an excellent way to get very targeted traffic. Guest posting is one of the most effective marketing methods out there today, and there is no reason to think that will ever change. If, for example, I can write a guest post for a popular website, I’ll be able to benefit both from the link, and the traffic, for years to come.
The down side of guest posting, however, is that it can be a royal pain in the rear end to find the right sites that accept guest posts. It is critical to ensure the site you’re posting on is in your niche, or a related one, or Google will slap you for link spam.
To make life a little easier for everyone, I’ve gone out and found ten amazing sites that accept guest posts, and compiled them for you here. I provide you with a direct link to the page on their site that gives you instructions on how to guest post for them, as well as their page rank and Alexa rank information so you can decide where to send your posts.
If you have a website in the writing niche, or a related niche (writing, freelancing, blogging, creativity, ect) this is a great opportunity for you to TAKE ACTION and take your site to the next level. Guest posting is an amazing way to build an audience quickly and for the long term. Please enjoy this list, and consider sharing it with your fellow writers!
