Guest Blogger?? (2 posts)

    I just have a question about guest blogging... I have looked into all the forums about gaining more traffic and I fully understand that it is not an overnight thing and it seems that the true key to establishing lasting readers is to write write write. My question is this, Every site I look at or blog that i read about driving traffic recommends either getting a guest blogger or to be a guest blogger on someone elses blog... How do you go about establishing this? Do I just wait for someone to read my blog and go, Hmmm I want this guy to write on my blog or vice versa? I have decent traffic coming in for only doing this for a week or so but obviously I want to maximize my numbers, and in a way that is worth doing, I know the numbers mean nothing if the quality is not there.

    Thanks,

    Raymond

    Early on, it's easier for you to be a guest blogger than the other way around. Many people are looking for free content and in exchange, they will provide you with a few backlinks to your site. There may even be PageRank on that page eventually and that will provide you with "PR juice" to your site to increase your SERP.

    Personally, when I was looking to be a guest years ago, I would seek out other sites in the same niche that had slightly higher PR than I had. I was never turned down -- ever.

    One day when you gain traction folks will find you. Depending on your niche, I'd be more than happy to have another guest article on one of my sites.
