    Hi all!

    Be interested to get all of your opinions and tap into your knowledge!

    A big part of my SEO strategy for clients is linkbuilding through guest blogging. It's (relatively) white-hat and works.

    The issue for me with guest blogging is the bulk of content that is required. and the time that takes. After writing 20-50 blog posts in a month, there's not much time left for outreach, finding blogs that will take your content and then emailing webmasters and negotiating any price.

    I used to use a combination of PostJoint and MyBlogGuest - just upload your contend and pick the best website offer = great time saver.

    But since the crackdown on these sites, what does everyone else do now? I'm tempted to go back to them but they've both got more expensive and will probably have less blog opportunities since the crack down.

    Any tips? Is there a bigger and better guest blogging network out there?

    Let me know :)

    I still guest post, it is amazing. The only thing you have to beware of are the spam blogs. When you search for real and authority blogs, guest posts can skyrocket you in the SERP's. Sometimes i check Fiverr, but you will rarely find any good blogs. You could also contact some big blogs in your niche.

    You can try to search high traffic blogs that related to your niche. Then you try to contact bloggers through email. You offers guest post, if a blogger accept your offer and maybe the blogger will charge the cost to you.

    To find the blogs, you can do googling and check its Alexa rank.

    You may want to outsource the writing part, as well as the outreach part through freelance sites. All you will then have would be to submit and monitor progress.

    Ah thanks for replying guys!

    I've no problem writing the content, what I'm trying to avoid is finding a good industry related niche blog, reaching out asking to provide content for their blog and then they say they want £50 for the pleasure of doing so.

    I don't have the budget! It's good to know that guest blogging does still work though - I've neglected it of late to avoid Cutts's wrath :L

    Hire a freelancer from BHW who will find niche related sites then filter them according to your preference. Some guys will do it for a few bucks.

    Well, you can have a lot of options. But if you think that you are more willing to spend money than to exert efforts, the best thing for you to do is to outsource when it comes to the content of your page. But always be sure that you will invest your money in the right services.

    It really depends what you are looking for. Finding blogs to guest post on usually takes time but saves money.

    There are still great platforms out there which work, including Postjoint.

    Another platform is teliad, they are useful if you're trying to do international SEO and work with bloggers around Europe / NA. The quality standards as well as the price are quite high. They also do offer you the option to let the bloggers write the content for you (which can be a time saver).

    In the end, I'd always use a combination of different platforms and strategies.

    Well if you don't have enough budget to spend but having high quality articles, you can approach different bloggers in your niche for an exchange of articles with links. Some will allow and other may deny it, all depends on your blog and some more factors.

    As Jollyman has suggested, you can start doing article exchange: you post on their site and they post on yours. Of course, not all bloggers will respond or agree to do it, but you can reach quite a few of them actually. This technique will not only save you cash, but will also produce extra content for your website and will bring the other person's audience, because they usually promote their guest blog posts on their platform too. And another point is that if you want to build long term relationships with other bloggers, you better do the outreach yourself and make it personal. You can search for such bloggers on BHW too. Good luck!

    You can try out Postjoint and teliad. Article exchange can prove to be a good idea. The most lengthy one would be to try and find out different high PR similar niche blogs and then contacting them individually.

    You can always earn less from one client, but win other new ones. It's simple on how to win some more time. You just need to focus more on the to do things that brings new clients. I dont say you should resell your work but with money you do money.
