Guest Blogging

Top 50 Quality Blogs For Guest Blogging (Do Follow)

Guest blogging is a hot topic in the SEO community and there will always be a discussion about whether or not guest blogging is still acceptable in Google’s eye. According to Matt Cutts (the head of Google’s webspam team), guest blogging is becoming too spammy and is considered an illegal link building tactic.  However, guest blogging can be a very effective way to build links to your site if you follow Google’s strict guidelines.

Guest Blog The Right Way

The biggest thing to avoid is to post on unrelated blogs. The worst thing you can do is to post on a lot of unrelated AND spammy blogs. This is an example of unrelated spammy blog. You may find similar site owners offer to post your articles for very cheap like $5. As you can see on the above example, the homepage has Domain Authority (DA) of 41 and Page Rank of 2. From the outside it looks like a great website to post but if you see the content of the site it is terribly spammy. So you must avoid posting anything on sites like these.

Here’s a video of Matt Cutts talking about how you should do your guest blogging without alerting the webspam team at Google:

How To Guest Blog Efficiently

So here are the main points that we can take away from Matt’s explanation on the video:

First, you must write very HIGH-QUALITY articles to be posted on your host websites. I recommend writing a minimum of 1000 words so you have a lot of “meaty” content to talk about.You must look like an expert in your niche and never use spinned articles to send out. Look at past articles that have been accepted. Are they high quality articles? For webmasters, if you decide to accept posts from guest authors, you must be very selective in accepting them. Do not accept low quality articles that people wouldn’t want to read or share.

Second, you must not post on unrelated/spammy blogs. The topic of the blog must match the topic of your article. If you’re a web-designer don’t post on blogs about golf or puppies. One thing that people forget when they do guest post is you must find related websites that can bring highly targeted traffic to your site, don’t guest post just for the sake of link building.

Third, you must not use keyword rich anchor text all over the article. Use text like “click here,” your brand name, or just use a normal sentence as a link. Google Panda and Penguin updates punish websites that are overly optimized by using keyword-rich anchor text on their backlinks.

Fourth, you must not mass guest-post. Don’t send out outreach emails to hundreds or thousands of webmasters and hope to guest-post on as many blogs as possible. Choose 3-5 very solid blogs in your niche, guest blog regularly, and build relationships with the site owners and their readers.

Here’s an excellent example of a guest post that meets all the things that Matt talks about in the video. Let’s talk why this is a great example: Right away at the top the site owner introduces who the guest author is and why he is invited to write on his blog (he’s an expert in the field). You see the content is top-notch and there are very little keyword rich anchor text on the body of the article.

So there you have it! By now you should be able to tell a difference between spammy guest postings vs. non-spammy guest postings. Below is a list of 50 blogs about SEO, Social Media, Web-Design, and internet marketing in general that accept guest blogging. The list is sorted out based on their Page Authority (PA) not Google Page Rank.

Remember, be polite and respectful when approaching these webmasters and always follow their submission guidelines.

  • posting only on high quality relevant sites (check DA, PA, and backlink profile).
  • not spamming the article with keyword-rich anchor text. Use your URL, brand, or generic sentences as anchor text.
  • writing the best content possible so the online world (including Google) sees you as an expert in your niche.
