    guest blogging / guest posting is when you make a post that is published on other site from your niche, linking to your site.
    This is a great way to get niche-targeted contextual backlinks, as well as some targeted traffic to your site and reputation on your niche (assuming your guest post is good and relevant to the other blog's readers)

    Ah, there seems to be loads of hype about guest blogging recently. In my experience, it can be a great tool, not just for SEO, but also for driving targeted traffic to your website. But what you don't want to do is go out there and start posting to every blog that will have you. There are much smarter ways to do it than that! I've recently published a post on this over on my blog which you might find useful. You can check it out over at Matts Backpack [.]co [.]uk. If you've got any questions, feel free to ask!

    Hi,

    As Matt said. Guest blogging is good for seo and for driving targeted traffic to your site. Just remember to do it on blogs/sites that are reliable. Don't post comments like: Wow, this article was so great, come and see my awesome site xxx. Try to get in touch with other people, help them with something and they surely will visit your site.

    yea... having managed a blog before i can definitely tell you that if you just leave ur website link you will get deleted and blocked... so make sure you do a bit more than that! Basically you have to convince the blog manager that your post including url is relevant and viable to that blog... otherwise bye bye

    Yeah, I think we might be in danger of confusing the 2 here. Posting a comment on a blog is very different from writing a guest post and sending it to the blog owner and requesting that they publish it on their blog.

    You're probably going to see a HUGE increase in the number of people writing and submitting guest posts this year. But the problem is, most of them will be rubbish :p

    The key to guest posting successfully is to take your time and research the blog that you want your post to be published on. Understand the site and their audience, what they like/don't like etc. That way you'll be able to write a post which is much more suited to that particular audience, and you're far more likely to get it published. Don't just do what 90% of SEOs will now be doing and pump out hundreds of crappy posts to every blog you can find. The types of blogs who just publish any old rubbish are the ones who will end up getting deindexed in the not too distant future.

    Guest blogging is not just leaving a post on someone else blog. It's where they allow you to submit an a blog article and leave a link back to your site. It's a great way to get tons of traffic to your blog but you need to have a really great blog with great content before they allow you to take the reigns so to speak.

    Was it easier to create a new thread than merely posting your title in google?
