Guest Posting is a link building technique in which you can write an article on someone else site and get do-follow/no-follow backlink in return. Using this technique, you will get the backlink while the website owner will get the high-quality article for his blog. In simple words, it is like a batter system where you are exchanging post for a backlink.
Below, in this article, we have shared a Complete and Definitive Guide to Guest Posting.

In SEO, Guest posting is one of the best off-page SEO strategy used to enhance your blog traffic. Apart from building backlinks, it also helps you to spread your message and build trust & loyalty with your target audience.
If you are a beginner and struggling to build an online loyalty then I strongly suggest you use this technique. Trust me, blog writing on someone else site will really help you in this matter.
Still not convinced, Why should you do guest posting and write a blog for free?
If you are still not convinced with this technique then we suggest you please read out the below benefits once.
Benefits OF Guest Posting for SEO
The benefits of guest posting are widespread. By writing a blog on someone else site, you can get many benefits like
- It helps you to build a good number of backlinks for your site.
- It is a great way to establish your authority in your niche. Your target audience will come to know about your service and will visit your blog for more information.
- You will get a chance to interact with the new people and hence you build a strong online network.
- It will give you instant exposure to your target audience. The website owner will share your blog on various social media networks and thereby your article will get a good exposure.
Hence, by writing a single guest article, you will get a free backlink, good exposure, personal networking, and free traffic on your blog.
Do you still think, Guest Posting is not a good idea? I think you should at least give a try to it.
Now, before moving forward, let us first understand the meaning of Paid and Free Guest Posting.
Generally, guest posting on most of the blogs are free, you will not pay for writing and get paid for it.
But there are the few websites who charge X amount for writing a guest post on their blog. Usually, this kind of blogs are with good domain authority and will drive good SEO benefits to your site.
Hence, if you are planning to write a guest post on the high authoritative blog with good traffic then you need to pay for it.
Remember, the only benefit of writing paid guest posts is – for paid posts you have flexibility with their posting guidelines. Hence, you don’t need to follow their posting guidelines for writing a paid guest post.
While in free guest posts, there are lots of posting guidelines that need to be followed for getting a free post.
Next, it takes lots of time in convincing someone and getting a free guest post published on his blog while in case of paid post, it will get published immediately. Hence, both free and paid guest posts have its own advantage and disadvantage in using it.
Of course, there are few blogs with domain score and allow free guest posting on their blog. The list of such blogs is discussed later in this article.
But, a question may arise, how to find the best guest posting sites for Guest Posting?
Find Best Guest Posting Sites
Very Simple. If you know how to write good quality content then it is very easy to find guest posting sites. All you need to do is contact any blog’s owner with your content and request him to post your guest article.
High authoritative blogs like Entrepreneur, Forbes, Lifehacks does not charge anything for publishing your guest posts. All they want is a killer content with lots of information in it.
You can contact them if building only backlinks is not your motive. Remember, they are very strict with their posting guidelines. Your post will not get approved if you have any hidden motive behind it.
But, are you not a pro blogger and does not want to write on such high authoritative blogs? So in this case, how to find other guest posting sites in your niche?
Well, in this case, you can find guest posting sites using two different methods discussed below.
Using Social Media Networks
On social media networks like Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter etc., there are many online groups providing this kind of services. You can join them and post your request for writing a free or paid guest posts there.
Using Google Search
Besides Socia Media groups, you can also try various search queries to find guest posting sites. For example, ‘Inurl: “Write for us” + Finance‘. Using this search query, you can find out the list of websites accepting guest post on finance niche.
In the above-attached image, Google is showing only those websites who are accepting guest post on finance niche. This is because you are further limiting your search results using ‘InUrl’ and particular keywords ‘Write for us‘ and ‘Finance‘.
Hence, using any of the above methods, you can easily find out the list of websites accepting free or paid guest posts on their blog.
