    whats the best way to determine value when it comes to guest posts on a blog?

    are there a set of standards these things are measured by ?

    I have a pretty decent site and have been getting more and more of these guest post inquiries.

    You asking what to charge for posts on your legit blog, or on a PBN you own?

    It depends on traffic, link profile, how many keywords your site ranks for, and metrics... post those up and I'm sure guys will offer up a consensus price you could get. If it were the blog that's in your profile there, I'd say it only has 10 traffic in SemRush and primarilly ranks in a few wedding photographer keywords in California. So it's desirability is highly limited were you to sell links.

    Thanks Thop!
    on my legit blog. not a PBN.

    Im new here , so forgive me for the n00b question thats about to follow: what do you suggest for best displaying this info? Ahrefs? Majestic? something off SEO powersuite?

    a lot of factors come into play. thats what I thought.
    Ive just been getting a lot of these recently so I wanted to look into it.
    I told one guy $100 a link. I told another $250 a post.
    I have no clue

    with those stats, go at least 300-500$...

    nothing less.

    somehow, the low orgarnic keywords troubles me. but, that's your thing.

    for me it seems it might just be some "blog" with no commercial ranking keywords behind it.


    also plug it into majestic. that the only value dumb as fuck suckers loot at. and anything about TF30+, they get excited like a guy watching his first porn.

    thanks for the valuation.
    I've been getting a few of these a week. a few days ago I told a guy $100 a link... I never heard back from him.
    Then today I went and told some chick $250 a post, she seemed excited but still no action yet.

    Realized after that I dont have a f%$king clue and better ask the pros
    thank you thank you

    TF < 35 is low to be considred impressive enough to make agencies buy from you...

    Boost it up with 50 Blogcomments on authority sites so you can reach TF40+. Once you hit TF40+ you can charge 300-500 per Post.
    Trust me. Bloated TF metrics is the way to reach maximum income.

    And ask the companies tthat they should deliver the content. Dont waste your precious time writing sh1t for them.

    all those years, havent seen not ONE companie contacting me, that even knew what ahrefs was. or UR/DR. or even referring domains..

    50 comments on authority sites. thanks for the tip. I'll do it.

    and yeah.. definitely not writing anything for these people that hit me up wanting a link.
    They have to provide good content for sure

    ahhhh brutha, if I knew I would but I just did the obvious and googled "authority sites list"
    now there are tons of em out there... and I imagine the way Im doing it is total n00b way of finding em but I figured I'd just sort through the noise and find a few gems.
    it could take a while. but this stuff takes time so Im used to it.

    I wouldn't even pay $30 for a link there. To me, this looks like an overly spammed site with no rankings whatsoever

    keep in mind, Im NOT the guy trying to sell links.
    I have had people hitting me up asking to guest blog on it... they are coming to the site filling out the contact form and reaching out to me.. so here I am, asking what rates are for this type of thing

    its all new to me

    I'm guessing he says that because of the low amount of keywords you have ranking acording to Ahrefs (200).
