10 Guest Blogging Rules You Must Obey

Guest blogging is all the rage these days. Two years ago when I started guest blogging, very few people were doing it and a guest post on an A-list blog is guaranteed to result in around 200 – 1000 visitors; sometimes more.

Not anymore, though. You’ll be lucky if you get 100 visits today from a guest post on a popular blog.

Why?

There are a host of reasons for this:

  • Guest blogging has become very competitive today, to an extent that a lot of blogs now publish only guest posts; that’s a new blog their reader has to check out every day
  • Most of the guest posts published today aren’t properly written, giving guest posting in general a bad reputation
  • Due to how widespread guest posts are today, people are starting to develop a kind of blindness towards guest posts in general; you remember “banner blindness” a few years ago when banner ads was all the rage?

Does this mean guest blogging no longer works? Read More

It’s an article of faith in many parts of the SEO industry that publishing content unrelated to your niche is at best useless, and at worst actively harmful to your rankings.

How Duplicate Content Affects Website Ranking, Domain Authority And SEO

Buzzword Bingo: Duplicate Content

Google has an obligation to give a searcher with the best search experience. It’s frustrating when these searchers look for information and find it’s almost similar or same. Google looks at this content, whether served on the same domain or on different ones, as a duplicate and has heavy penalties for the same.

There is no definite penalty for duplicate content, when the intention behind duplicating is to manipulate the algorithms or act maliciously. This is a judgment algorithm you have no control over. Dealing with duplicate content on your website ensures that you are not vulnerable to this judgment.

The real result of duplicate content is decreased visibility. When you have low visibility, your ranking gets hurt and as a result, bad SEO results. Duplicates also trigger lower crawl rates which is also related to lower indexing and visibility in search. As such, dealing with duplicate content once and for all is the best strategy. Read More

Today, we’re going to explain five great strategies for building high quality, relevant links.

Blog Commenting

Depending on your approach and intent, one of the best ways to build many high quality, relevant backlinks to your website or blog is by blog commenting. Blog commenting is not only a great way to share valuable information and opinions on other blogs, it’s also an easy way to leave your URL and have a permanent backlink.

When blog commenting, it’s important to focus on the pagerank of the particular blog post you’re commenting on, as a post with a high pagerank will definitely give your link more link juice and authority. A word of warning though, this method has been abused by many in the blog spamming habit.
