Effective Guest Blogging Tips

A post for bloggers with effective guest blogging tips to experience its benefits and to perform well in the blogosphere.

Most of the website owners have started considering guest blogging very seriously as it is an effective marketing technique in the online world. Not only bloggers, even multinational companies have started guest blogging for some valid reasons.

If you are an influential blogger, I am sure that you have already started to guest post on other blogs of your same niche and tasting its benefits.

But if you are a newbie blogger, then you might ask β€œWhat is guest blogging?” and β€œWhy should I write guest posts on other blogs?”

Yeah, both are good questions! But before answering to it, let me ask some questions because I always taking care and love to read other blogs πŸ™‚

Add β€œDo you” for every question of mine!

  1. Want to increase credibility among your blog readers?
  2. Need to have more blog subscribers?
  3. Prefer the natural promotion for your blog?
  4. Desire to gain more visibility and traffic to your blog?
  5. Favor effective link building method?
  6. Wish to make friendship with fellow and prominent bloggers?

I know, all your answers for my questions are β€œYES” as you are a passionate blogger. Then do β€œGuest blogging” on active blogs to reap these benefits.

Now here is the answer for your very first question:

What is Guest Blogging?

“Guest blogging is a strategy of appearing on other same niche blogs with your fresh post as a guest.”

But be sure that your guest post should not ruin the status of the blog where you are appearing as a guest blogger. It means that you need to submit quality guest posts on other blogs and help those blog owners to get good traffic through your posts.

Hope you are now somewhat clear with β€œGuest blogging and its benefits”. Am I correct?

I always used to write high-quality guest posts for my blogging friends and influential bloggers. Also am feeling virtuous as this is my 13th guest post in my 5 months blogging career.

Ok, let me explain some common myths of guest blogging.

Guest Blogging Myths

Myth #1. Number of guest posts approved is important than its quality.
Some bloggers performing guest blogging just to build backlinks to their blog. They are showing interest to create more number of guest posts on various blogs and never mind about its quality. It is a bad practice and should be avoided by the bloggers.

Truth: Quality guest posts sounds greater than more no. of guest posts submitted just for link-building.

Myth #2: Blogs should have good PR to submit guest post on other blogs.
Newbie bloggers think that their blog should have high Pagerank to submit their guest post on other blogs. It is not true! My guest posts were accepted in PR4 and PR3 blogs and my blog’s page rank is 0. So, don’t hesitate to guest post on energetic blogs even if you have low or zero page rank.

Truth: Valuable guest posts which are helpful for the visitors are readily accepted on famous blogs.

Myth #3: Taking much effort for guest blogging is waste
I came across few bloggers with the statement β€œWhy should I write long and quality posts just for backlinks and I have alternate ways for it”. No, it is really wrong and the bloggers should not expect instant results from guest blogging.

Truth: Guest blogging is only effective if it is focused to have long-term benefits. Write expert-quality content and make sure to scan it for any grammar mistakes. (here are some grammar checker tools you can use for this purpose). The more value you will add into your guest post, the more benefit you will get in long-term.

Tips To Get Your Guest Posts Accepted

  1. Try to impress the blog owners whom you are selected to submit your guest posts with polite approach and explain why you have selected their blog to submit your post.
  2. You should write guest post for related niches with good PR and high authority blogs, so sure to be thorough with their guidelines of guest posting.
  3. Follow your unique style in writing to stand out from other guest bloggers.
  4. It is really exciting to see your name on well-performing blogs right? So include a simple and gorgeous Author-bio for your guest post.
  5. Make efforts to engage the visitors from the beginning of your guest post by offering some fresh or unread data for them.


I am definitely saying that no other publicizing method can beat guest blogging. It is a honest white hat SEO technique which brings countless benefits to the bloggers. Also it is a good opportunity for the bloggers to reach wider minded audience and chance to establish a good relationship with the powerful bloggers.

Through the guest blogging experience, the bloggers can get their name known in the blogosphere.

Now it’s your turn to speak!

Have you been a guest blogger? What are the benefits you attained with it?
If you are a newbie, just say β€œAre you going to perform guest blogging?
What about the effective guest blogging tips which I have shared here? Is it beneficial?

    Wow this is really a great and well written article, any body can just understand it easily. Thanks for shading such an amazing insight into guest blogging. I wished all those rubble guest writers will see it before submitting rubbish articles to be published.

    • Nirmala Santhakumar

      Thanks for appreciating my writing Nwosu, its nothing but simple and clear for the visitors.

      Yes, am very much worrying about the quality of guest posts by other bloggers as some of them are writing just to build links. This is the reason, still am not opening guest posts in my new blog.

  9. Your tips resonate with me.

  11. Great points on getting your posts accepted. Another point I would make as well is to compliment the site owner on their site. By complimenting at the beginning of the email, it sucks them into reading the rest of what you have to say…whether or not they want your post.

  13. Mam I’m little confused!!
    what is guess blogging sites? or it simply blogging sites & what is different between comments and guess blogging?

    • Nirmala Santhakumar

      In blogs, you have to do guest blogging. But, not all the blogging sites are accepting the guest posts. You have to check the blogs which are opened for guest blogging.

      Leaving your comment after reading a post in blogs are called blog commenting (What you’ve done here.

      Both guest blogging and blog commenting are the genuine ways which should be performed by the bloggers to increase their popularity and reputation.

  14. I love to follow your blogs. Nice to see you over here with the best possible contents. Every bit is clear here about guest posting.

  15. The first step to become a guest bloggers, you should must impress the blog owner, and for that you have to land on his/her blog again and again and leaving some valuable comments on daily basis. Nirmala i totally agree with all your tips. these are all incredible tips for u.

  16. As predicted this is another awesome post by Nimala mam. Thanks Nirmala and Ankit for sharing this awesome post. I appreciate you both for your hard work

    • Thanks for appreciating me Sanjay, glad you liked it πŸ™‚

  17. Dear Admin,

    Hi,i have built my blog weeks ago,i am new there,and i got about 50 views a day and about 25 visitors,
    is that good or not??!!
    Please visit my blog and give me your feedback

  18. One other thing I would mention when getting your post accepted: If you know you have a good post and are going to the right site, sometimes it helps to email a site owner again if you haven’t received a response. I’ve received at least a couple of responses from site owners even if they just try to shut down any future emails. About 25%, however, are more open to talking at that point.

    Guest blogging is very important for all bloggers as you have rightly said most especially for a newbie, it must be properly handle so as not to endanger guest author blogging career base on his/her content.

  23. this is awesome post yaar.i got this post link from my friend.he always visit your blog.thanks again buddy.gob bless you.And ankit i sent you one mail from contact us regarding ALEXA Rank. please help me out.


  24. Exactly why to waste your time and content just for sack of backlinks i think later when blog is popular it is the relationship between fellow bloggers that works and now the guest post plays a role.

  25. Though It was very informative article, but I am bit confuse in regards to from where to start. Right know I am believing that for guest blogging I should have a blogger friends who writes on my topics i.e. on homeopathy and then I should ask him/her for guest blogging. Right Ms. Nirmala Santhakumar????

  26. Thank you for the valuable information that you have provided to the world with your blog posts! I am very new to blogging, and had no idea that guest blogging could be of such benefit to my site!

    I am now interested in doing some guest blogging, and would love the opportunity to work with you on that. I will definitely be reading more of your posts!

    Keep up the amazing work!

  27. Thanks Nirmala, for the myth busting information regarding guest blogging.

    I have published only a few posts on my website since it was launched only few months back.Should I wait for sometime or can I start requesting for guest post approval now itself?

  28. Great tips for guest blogging. Mainly guest post that remain for a long term on a blog is the best thing because it will help the post to rank high and get more traffic and is considered better than a quality link.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Nirmala, Thanks for the great guest blogging tips. So far, I have not submitted any post to another blog. But I am planning to write some long post (2000~3000 words) for some popular blogs. All the tips you have mentioned are valuable and helpful for every new blogger. I will definitely follow these techniques.

  30. A wonderful article about guest posting, like all the others on this site. Thank you! Guest posting is really an important thing that helps us develop our blog. Once I also wrote a lot of guest posts that would promote my site. And now, when I myself began to accept posts from others, I ran into the problem that many send poor quality, even pure plagiarism from other sites! This is very sad. Therefore, I advise everyone to check posts on plagiarism in the program, such as Unicheck.com or any other checker. It helped me immediately weed out substandard posts. Good luck everyone πŸ™‚

  31. Great myth buster post Nirmala ! I have read many your guest post on other websites, and this is my first comment. Guest blogging is among the top recommended strategies on how to build and grow a blog. It’s one of the fastest ways to secure a better future for your blog.
