    Hi!

    I have a blog with PR2. Several bloggers on the same niche have contacted me to write Guest Post on my blog.
    What do you suggest? ( Some are competitors )

    Thanks and sorry for my bad english!

    This has been on the rise lately. Its mostly link builders with fake gmail id's trying to get a guest blog post. If it happens to be your competitors then check out the pros and cons. You can charge them money that way at least you'll make a few $$'s as long as it doesn't affect your existing sales/goals.

    The decision is yours to take. But, if you want, just charge from your competitors. Charge good enough, so that, link builders stay away. Also, check the quality of the guest post and see if that is really helpful to your visitors. If it is, why shouldn't you allow guest posts! Just one thing, don't be so generous to your competitors and politely decline the offer, unless, they offer you back a guest post in their site.

    I would not accept guest posts that link to your direct competitors, doesn't really make sense does it?

    The majority of people that do guest posting just want a link, it's still buying links but instead people pay with unique content. I used to accept free guest posts but after recieving 20 plus per day I decided to charge a $10 admin fee as reviewing 20 posts per day is very time consuming and to do that for free or for unique content is not worth my time.

    If you're going to accept guest posts I would suggest only accepting guest posts that are relevent and not written in a way that promotes a specific product or service. I also review any out going links and check to see if they are a legitimate business.

    Like other said above, charging for guest post from your competitors is a good idea. You can also exchange guest posts with them if you're not willing to charge anything.
