    Hi,

    I think the most important backlink type is, guest blog posts.

    So while selecting the blog for guest posts what should we look for to get the best results for SERPs?

    Thanks

    First thing you need to check is its relevance. Pick niche relevant guest blogs to get maximum benefits.

    Also you need to check how real is the blog you're outreaching.. Make sure it has clean backlink profile and allows only niche relevant backlinks.

    Tip #1 - make sure it's a real blog. There are real blogs then there are faux blogs set up for all sorts of reasons (but mostly for the purpose of selling links)

    Only get links on the real ones

    A blog should have a good amount of quality articles and should have good social media profiles. Also go for TF, DA and backlink profile of the blog.

    Guest post is a good choice. In guest post you should care about 4 things mainly (i,e) Niche relevancy, Authority, TF/CF, Active on social media.

    Pay attention to how busy the blog is

    Does it get a lot of social media signals?

    Also, make sure it is niche-relevant

    Don't just email them with a pitch

    Participate and earn the trust of the bloggers behind the blogs you're thinking of guest posting on

    THINK in terms of RELATIONSHIPS

    Use niche relevant blogs with good metrics. Check all the aspects like DA, PA, CF/TF ratio. Above of all, you need to check the backlink history which should be clean.

    To be honest, metrics are just one part of the puzzle. Often times you can find websites that easily accept guest posts, but they'll have a manual penalty from Google because they accept so many guest posts (probably in exchange for cash some times).

    The key is to try and build a real relationship with whoever you're contacting, they need to believe you're genuinely adding value. People are so savvy nowadays, if you come at it from an SEO angle you're going to fail 9 times out of 10.

    No one hear mentioned perhaps the second most important characteristic besides relevancy.......traffic. Make sure the blog gets traffic, anyone can fake social signals...

    While you are looking for the guest post, you need to check first the Domain Authority for the selected guest post. Read and follow the blogger's guideline accordingly.
    Domain Authority is the first thing to look for.
