Guest blogging has been a popular method for both writers and blog owners alike; blog owners get fresh content for their site and writers get the opportunity to reach a completely new audience, it is also a great way of building backlinks or garner interest in a new product you’re promoting.
It wasn’t long before people started wondering if it was possible to make MONEY by accepting guest blog posts – step forward Guest Post.
Guest Post is a market place where guest bloggers can submit their articles and will pay blogs to publish them on their sites. The model seems to have changed since their launch, they used to allow blog owners to search through available offers and then submit an application to publish whatever guest posts they fancied, now guest posters are charged with seeking out the blogs they are interested in.
Creating an account as a blog owner could not be easier, you simply need to pick a username, password & enter your email address. Once you have your account it is then time to submit your blogs, picking a price for your blogs can be the hardest task of the whole procedure, here is a quick guideline taken from their FAQ:
PR2+ | DA 20+ – $20+
PR3+ | DA 30+ – $30+
PR4+ | DA 40+ – $40+
If you have a blog with a PR of 0 or 1 then I would suggest keeping the price to $5 and $10 respectively.
Although people come for the guest posts, there is also a growing forum community where you can talk shop with other members, ask for help with ideas for promoting your site, and you can even pick up cheap guest posts for a couple of Bucks.
But isn’t guest post dead?
Many people have been speculating about this for a few months now and with Matt Cutts talking about cutting down on guest posting it only seems to prove that they were right, but they have read it wrong. They are not going to kill guest posting, they are simply going to come down on those of you who write and publish spammy guest posts – which is good for all of us.
If you are interested in publishing quality guest posts on your blog, and making a bit of money while you’re doing it, then Guest Post is most definitely worth signing up with.
