Guest blogging, guest posting, or guest writing – whatever you want to call it – is still very much alive, in spite of Matt Cutts saying “stop guest blogging for SEO“.
We definitely agree that guest blogging has its pitfalls, but as Matt Cutts also said, guest blogging per se is not “bad”. It gets all sleazy when it’s done simply for SEO, and when the content and link quality is low.
That being said, we’re all for guest blogging. We accept guest posts, and we also guest post on other blogs. But we totally agree with the concept of NOT doing guest blogging purely for SEO, and we want to ensure that the guest posts we accept are high quality and not (link) spammy. Read More
The business landscape has been drastically re-shaped by the influence of the online world. In order to move forward and take advantage of lucrative opportunities, business owners find the need to not only improve on their traditional business principles but also diverge from them.
There are various strategies that are being implemented by business owners to gain a foothold online, especially with the goal of crossing geographical boundaries and gaining the custom of clients on a global scale. One of them is starting a business blog.
At the end of the day, however, the “old” adage that “content is king” still applies, no matter how clichè it has become. Read More
Online publishing is a booming niche, and while the competition is stiff, there are still many who flock to the Internet to try their hand at it. Yes, it is not too late for anyone to enter the online publishing realm. Whether you’re new to the game, or you have been at it for quite some time now, one important thing you ought to realize is that just because you’re publishing online doesn’t mean you can be held legally liable for what you publish.
Of course, legal obligations of online publishers depend on where they are based or registered, but the short of it is this: you can be taken to court because of what you publish on your blog or web site. Read More
Blogging for yourself gives you a sense of achievement and self-fulfillment that may be hard to beat. It, however, doesn’t always rake in the big bucks. There is always that possibility, but more often than not, the average individual blogger finds himself in financial problems at some point. This is especially true if you’re only relying on your own blogs for revenue.
Due dates for bills are not flexible. Credit cards continue to earn interest, maybe even to the point that you may have to consider other options to successfully manage your credit card debt. In fact, Jeffrey Weber of SmartBalanceTransfers.com recommends that people with almost maxed out – or maxed out – credit cards should look at getting a new one with a good rate on balance transfers.
Then there are those emergencies that always crop up at the wrong time.
That is why, if you’re relying on your own sites to earn, maybe it’s time you consider being a blogger for hire. While there may be some people who do not like the idea, there are benefits of being a blogger for hire. Here are some of the most compelling ones. Read More

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.” Thus said Franklin D. Roosevelt in his 1932 presidential election campaign speech. Powerful words indeed. They shed light to the fact that we oftentimes give in to our natural reflexes and responses without ever truly thinking about the effect of the particular emotion.
Fear is a destructive force and those who succumb to it are defeated before the task or battle has begun. Now the most damaging effect of fear is that we either never embark on our mission, or procrastinate towards stagnation. So it is also with blogging, online marketing and every other business venture or task we take on. Our fears of rejection, failure and even success, cripple us and leave us down the road with feelings of “what if” rather than the satisfaction of “been there, done that.“ Read More

Every single topic has been the subject of hundreds of blogs. Some were written for specific audiences, some came from less-than-reputable sources, and others were so poorly written that one can barely get through the first sentence. Those blogs don’t do well – what’s worse, they ruin the blogger’s reputation.
An organized blogger is a successful one.
Okay, I just made that up, but there is some truth in that, don’t you think? One of the issues bloggers face is that there are times when the temptation to be laidback and go with the flow is too strong to resist.
If you’re serious about achieving success with your blog – although success can be relative – there is something to be said about being an organized blogger.
How exactly can you be an organized blogger? Read More

All of us who have been in the online marketing industry for some time already know that high quality content is what people want. We have also been bombarded with post after post telling us how to make high quality content, especially since the whole concept of content marketing caught on in the past year or two.
And yet with all these “tips and tricks”, every content marketing specialist has given us to make memorable, innovate and downright awesome content, there is still a deluge of forgettable, copy-paste, and downright mediocre content flooding the Internet (including the countless “how to create quality content” posts).
