Editing a Guest Blog Post For Maximum Success [Infographic]

Guest blogging can be an excellent way to earn credibility in your blog’s niche, establishing yourself as a writer to be taken seriously and reaping the rewards brought to you by an instant traffic boost. In order to give yourself the best possible chance of having your article accepted as a guest blogger and taking full advantage of the benefits, use this handy infographic and accompanying quick guide to submit only the highest quality content as a guest blog post.

1. Write interesting, enjoyable and unique content

The key, of course, to a successful guest blog post is good, readable content that readers will enjoy and want more of. Strive to be interesting, presenting new ideas in an honest, personal and unique way, all in the interest of giving your readers a reason to recall your blog by name the next time they’re looking for an interesting website to visit.

2. Don’t go overboard

While the goal of your guest blog article submission is ultimately to drive traffic back to your site, don’t stuff your content with unnecessary or tricky links. The readers you want to follow you back to your home on the web are the ones who are genuinely interested in the content you produce, not those duped into visiting by awkwardly placed or misleading hyperlinks.

3. Make your article stand out from the crowd

There are millions of blog posts being added to the ever-growing blogosphere on a daily basis, making standing out nothing resembling an easy task. In the interest of making your article one that visitors will want to stop and read, utilize graphics, HTML, humor, insider knowledge and well-constructed opinion to give your readers an experience that they can only obtain with you.

    Guest posting is really a good way to gain backlinks and traffic. I’m amazed at some of the bloggers that just explode on the scene. You see their posts everywhere. I think it’s because they don’t know that they are not supposed to ask biggest blogs to allow them guest post. You never know until you ask. Quality of the writing is key including the ability to persuade. Brilliant headline, excellent Inforgraphic and useful advice. I know that if I put my mind to it that I can make a great post, so all I need now is the focus to go out and finish a task.

    Thanks, Bashir! And good luck with your guest blogging pitches this month.

    Good suggestions Agnabii.

    I’m not a big guest poster mainly because of the time constraints. But I know a lot of blogging friends of mine that have really started to get noticed because of their guest posting.

    Writing for that audience, an enticing headline and valuable content will really get those readers wanting to come back for more. I love the infographic as well, I do enjoy seeing images in posts. It seems to drawn me in.

    Great tips, thanks for sharing.

    Enjoy your week.

      Hi Adrienne,

      Welcome To my blog, and thanks for your appreciation. You are not a big guest poster why ? If you know the guest post benefits you should do guest post as you said your friends are doing well and noticed by their guest posting.

      I agree with you, valuable content is everything if you write good and fresh content I’m sure you will get accepted on big blogs like problogger, copyblogger techcrunch. I loved too infographic as well.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your valuable comment.

    Great post and image on getting a guest post published. I started this a while ago and at the start didn’t have much success as I was trying to write too many posts with not enough quality.

    Looking at your image, it seems as though we both think alike. My posts are now much better, more research and take a lot longer to write but essentially, they are accepted by blog owners more often now.
