One of the best ways to increase your overall link building and exposure online is through the use of guest blogging. Never before has it been so affordable and effective to get your site listed on other top blog simply for writing excellent content for their site.
There are thousands of blogs out there that accept guest posting and you can see a full list of them here. The majority of these blogs are running off the WordPress platform, which makes it extremely easy for sites to add new authors to the sites.
When you submit a guest post to a blog, usually you will receive an author section that contains your picture, description and a link back to your site.
I am currently a guest blogger on many blogs and some of them are better than others when it comes to getting comments, giving your author links and how they setup their bio areas.
A great example and a very rewarding site is at basicblogtips.com. You can see my bio section in the screenshot below.
You can see another example of a different author bio setup on BloggingTips.com, which is another multi-author site that I run.
If you write some really great content then there is a good chance that readers of the blog will click over to your web site and start reading your own content as well.
Guest blogging is an excellent way to tap into new audiences without the need to spend extra money on advertising that may never end up resulting in a profit.
The Business2Community.com site is also driven on these same content rewarding practices.
If you scroll down to the bottom of this post you will see my full bio along with my picture, description and links to my web sites and social pages.
Before spending money on your next ad campaign, be sure to spend some time with guest blogging and see if it’s right for your online business and link building strategy.
