Advantages of Writing Guest Posts.

There are so many reasons why you write guest post on other blogs ? And that’s one of the interesting part of blogging.Β  You may ask, i don’t have time to write even for your my own blog and why you do i write guest post ? Okay, lets see those major advantages first which makes everything clear to you.

Exposing Your Brand.

Have a brand with you and this involves taking the brand to the world. Its more about making visibility of your brand and exposing wider to the world. Because every website needs branding and it should reach the world. Exposing the brand may not happen itself and you don’t need to wait for people to see you.

Instead, you have to create visibility and expose your brand to the world yourself. So writing a guest post in other blogs help you to expose your brand to more people apart from your regular readers.

Bringing off-page SEO.

Off-page optimization is one of the major topic in SEO. It involves, how the world looks your site. One way, off-page optimizing happens naturally. Your content goes viral, your web site goes viral and spreads across the Internet. Other way, (especially during the initial/growing stage of your business) you have to optimize off-page yourself. There comes the Backlinks.

Now-a-days, search engines are intelligent in weighing the backlinks. It gives attention only to high quality backlinks. Guest posting is one such quality backlink creation strategy. If you write more guest posts on related blogs, it means you are doing effective off-page optimization by gaining quality backlinks to your web site.

Get In Touch with co-bloggers.

You are blogging on a niche/market and i too blog on the same niche/market. This way, both of us are building a relationship with each other. You may write a guest post on my blog today and i may write a guest post on your blog tomorrow. It increases the interaction between bloggers and finally, you will build a network of co-bloggers around your web site. That’s more important in business, especially if you want to survey in a highly competitive market.

Redirecting Targeted Visitors.

Next comes the traffic. Guest post floods you traffic in two ways. One from the site where you are writing a guest post and indirectly from search engines upon gaining authority. Its like redirecting visitors from one blog to another blog.

For example, if you write 10 guest posts on 10 blogs and if 10 visitors coming from each of these blogs per day then your blog gets 100 extra visitors per day for life long. A very simple calculation, right ?

Brushing Up Writing Skills.

In practical, while writing a guest post you will definitely pays more attention to the content. Because, you are going to publish before others or unknown visitors and automatically you will concretate on the quality. This way, your writing skill improves and the next day, you will write even better on your own blog.

Experience is the one which always brushes your knowledge into better shape. Write more guest posts and see, how your writing habit changes going forward !

Its Fun Too.

Blogging is always fun. Guest blogging is even more fun. Its all about, how you are planning and working for your web sites growth. If you think as serious business then its serious. If you do it like hobby then its hobby. I am busy with my day job and blogging as hobby (but seriously). I short, have fun, while writing guest posts.
