    How should I pay for guest post on a site with 687k organic traffic

    Look at DA and PA and TF for that, not organic visitors.

    Problem with these websites with high numbers of organic visitors is that they have these visitors on pages people find in Google where 95% of traffic bounces.

    So they never visit the homepage, meaning they probably won't find your article either.

    But, on the plus side it means you are more likely to rank for specific terms on their site which might help get more traffic.

    Rather than asking us how much you should pay, simply send the owner of the website an email asking how much it will be.

    If they don't have an answer because you're the first person, start with an offer of $50 (granted that you write the content).

    Then they'll just send you a counter offer and you can figure out the price.

    Sorry, this is nonsense. I couldn't care less for DA, TF or any other metric - they are good only to sort out big lists.
    @OP If this websites ranks for RELEVANT to your niche keywords (i mean i wont be buying link for say food niche, from website with 2 million traffics in torrent tracker niche..), the links are half decent - its good to go, regardless of what metrics have. Truth to be told from this screenshot it looks like the link profile is not so good (historical 5.8k RDs, live - 1460 - this website somehow manage to lose 2/3 of its links? hmmm).

    Now about the price - it really depends of the niche. Finance related website with this traffic? Probably you are looking for $500+. If is some lifestyle/general niche crap anything under $100 is a good deal, anything over $300 is overpriced.

    ut @AngelSeo

    then how come people here with a list for guest blogs with 1/10th a the metric ask for such hight price?

    even I dont believe in the DA/PA/TF etc metrics . I asked the same question here on BHW ( https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/tell-me-moz-tools-suggestions-and-google.1116642/ ) and some said it is important ) Now i am coufuused.

    Like i often buy guest blogs from providers here and other places. most touting the metrics

    from one provider I was so pissed i gave a negative review (for the first time in 10 years) "solid exterior and shiny" metric. but nothing but a glorified but nothing more than pusedo PBN. 1000s of blogs with almost every blog with links to some service. and worst thing almost zero traffic. which crediable site has 1000s of blogs and virtually no orgnagic traffic?

    from what I saw in many sites were built (buy a domain with good da/pa etc) and start selling guest blogs.

    so back to the point. even sites that look like pusedo PBN sites ask for anywhere between $50 to $200. so what do i make of the above?

    so then how much for this with real traffic and real site?

    I prefer looking at DA mainly because this site could get these organic visitors because they rank #1 on some random keyword that has a lot of search volume but does very little. So that site's DA can be low but get tons of visitors because the PA of that specific page is high.

    Using DA shows a decent description of how well the site does in general, not just a smaller portion of the site that attracts a ton of visitors.

    Thats why you need to check the website organic keywords, to see for what it ranks. Of course is meaningless to buy a post in website that ranks for unrelated crappy shit, regardless of what metrics it have. But you dont need DA or PA or anything for that. Just Ahrefs account and common sense. Also DA is the easiest metric to trick, just saying.

    Sellers are exploiting people who have no clue (and often the sellers doesn't know better either), thats the truth. If is zero (close to zero) traffic then is either penalized or PBN. There is no real website with some decent links and 0 traffic, period. How the f**k BBC found this website that rank for nothing to link it? So while traffic doesnt prove anything (PBNs are working just fine), when buying a GP - traffic is a must. Otherwise I am not paying $300 for link from your PBNs.

    exactly! I agree!

    a point is case (and very interesting one at that --> I was bored, so I attempted to post 3.4 million backlinks to my Fiverr Gig - Results so far the PA increases with spammy links.

    Most seller do not give thier list and only show (should I say "tout") the links are good becuase of the DA/PA and other metrics, but in fact they are an empty shell in a "solid and shiny exterior"

    and by the time the buyer find out, what the inside looks like!

    Have you got the offer already? Or you have to offer?

    DA is a fine to look for if you have less idea but other than that look for how many sponsored posts is that website providing if there are too many then your posts might not be on front page for long, also you will get less link juice going for bigger amount won't be a good idea.

    Also look for the keywords they are ranking if they are relevant then go for it else think again.

    this is not possible - most likely they block the Ahrefs of crawling it.

    it is true, no outbound links of anything. i kind of know the owner. that is why I am asking how is it worth to pay for guest post there.

    I mean is possible to not have any GP, however zero outbound links? No links to social medias? No links to authority websites whatsoever? That would be highly unlikely..

    Anyway its a good website to get a GP, and can be relevant for many niches.

    sshhhhh :D you are damn close.

    the point being how much would you may for such a post? it is relevant to mine.

    mine will be the only guest post / out bound link until of course the owner suddenly decides to sells Guest posts to others also.

    For this one $150 is a good price, under that is pretty sweet deal. Depending of the niche of the client the owner can go as high as $300 even.
