Of course you want to guest post (sometimes called referred to as guest blog). It’s a free way to get back links to your site which is the all-important measure that Google uses to ascertain your site’s authority. In fact, our experiments show that these are the best types of links (those embedded in a a post on a private blog) that easily outperform links on blog rolls, comment links, WordPress footers, text links, links from social media sites or any other type of backlinks to your site.
In fact, our experiments show that contextual links within a post placed after the post is created is not as powerful as links created concurrently with the creation of the post. Therefore, your intuition or what you read is correct about having your article placed on other people’s blogs are the best type of back links you can get for increasing your site’s authority and Google page rank.
Now that we know you’re on the right track, let’s explain why 99% of all bloggers pursue guest posts and guest posting incorrectly. If you have a key phrase that you’re targeting with super-low competition, then you don’t even need to worry about guest posts. You can place comments on others blogs and post on social media sites with backlinks to your site. And although this is very weak SEO juice, it will probably be sufficient to get your site on the first page of Google for keyword with no other competition.
On the other hand, if your targeted key phrase is highly competitive, you are wasting your time trying to guest blog. You will need hundreds, if not thousands of back links from private blogs in order to get you on the first page of Google. And based on what the research shows about top rank on Google, if you’re not on the first page of Google, you might as well not be on Google at all. Given that most guest posters contact blog owner’s one-by-one asking for permission to guest post, you would spend weeks, months or even years getting sufficient traction to get your site enough back links to be highly rated. Therefore, if you want results, you have no other choice than to buy guest blogging opportunities.
