    Hello guys.
    Week ago I searched on google some sites that allow guest posting.
    Then I found a site that has publish a list of authoritive sites that allow guest posting.
    Then I send emails to all of them, asking for guest posting.

    Just one of them replied to my request. But they want 900 USD for a single post and with a single nofollow link.

    Of course I don't have the budget for this. And I don't need a nofollow link.
    Anyway, I tried to take a look at their stats on similarweb and they have 1,000,000 monthly visits.

    What do you think guys about this kind of prices? I mean, I understand that they have 1,000,000 monthly visit, but it isn't too expensive for them to ask so much just for a nofollow link?

    Just give it a try and see what happen, with guest post it is not always about nofollow and ********, there is other things you can get from it.

    The price is probably ok - as said above, no follow links still have value. Also, if they have 1mil visits per month then you would get a lot of traffic I am guessing from that link, so it has value in that sense as well.

    Of course though if its out of your budget, why even worry about it? Just move on.

    Need to see how much traffic the individual articles get. More than likely not worth it. I have links from HuffPost, Inc.com, New York Times, etc etc. Only one that made a difference was NYT as it was a featured article. Did probably $150,000 in sales from it, and I still get the odd sale from it every week or two.

    If you don't need a no-follow link just move on OP. @Ababba2 I cannot tell you whether it's worth it or not without knowing your niche, and the site details which allows guest posting for $900.

    i've seen pricing of 3500 for a link on nytimes or the likes, so the $900 one isn't so bad, doesn't mean necessarily it will be worth it, depends.. though if you don't have the budget for it, it's pretty irrelevant :) find some others links within your budget.

    That's quite a lot for NY Times.

    What's their Alexa rank? 1M page views (hits) or VISITOR?

    I'd rather invest that money for other links such as PBN though.

    I hate to say "this," but this. A nofollow link could have tremendous value if it drives traffic. And there's various debates about nofollows passing value anyway; I tend to think they do, much the way a mention does. There's every reason to think Google discards nofollow at least some of the time, after all the user never even notices it.

    But if it's out of your budget, put it out of your mind. There's plenty of other useful ways you can spend your money and/or save the money and spend your time.

    OP did you checked how the site is ranked in Alexa in matters of traffic and all this? I just tested similarweb and even allowed access to the Google Analytics but the data it shows is not correct. I don't know if there is something better than Alexa but similarweb I won't trust after this when considering to get an overview of a website.
