Guest Post Format Guidelines

Please first read the benefits of guest blogging here, and then please follow the instructions carefully to format and send your article to us. Please note we have strict content and linking policies and may modify it from time to time to comply with good practice guidelines.

Guest Post Preparation Guide

guest post format

First-line – Choose the text carefully as first-line automatically becomes the META description tag of the article and affects search engine search result rankings.

Format Article Text – Add bold, underlines, break into paragraphs and try bullets, numbered lists to get a better copy.

Add Subheadings – its a good idea to split your article by subheadings. Only use h2-h3 tags.

Link policy – Kindly add only related and essential links to other sites that are required for the article. Please note links will be no-followed,  unless major well known common reputed sites are being linked e.g. Wikipedia, WordPress, etc which will be do-follow. You can search this site for related articles and links to our articles for internal linking. Your site link can only be added in the author byline with the same keywords, and NOT inside the article. This is usually the most common reason for rejection.

Images – At least a single relevant image is needed as it helps to get a better reader response. Free for use images can be obtained from Pixabay, Unsplash, Pexels, etc. Indicate source of image for credits.

AUTHOR BYLINE POLICY

Please read in full as this is the most important reason for rejection. It is a recent update to our policy, due to frequent gaming of links. The purpose is to provide a platform for author exposure. If you came looking for free keyword-rich anchor text dofollow backlinks for SEO only, this is not the right place. All articles need some information about the true author (we will usually not accept by third party writers for websites/companies).

  • We will link to Max 1 link to your site, including 1 Social Media link to sites like your Facebook/Twitter/Google+ profile.
  • We will add only nofollow links to the author sites in the byline unless it is your personal website or your personal social media sites.
  • Anchor text – same for your own site title or .com/.net etc. Do not link to SEO targeted keywords. e.g. If your site name is MyCoolSite.com, we cannot link it to “tech news”, we can link it to MyCoolSite or MyCoolsite.com only.
  • We will not link to unrelated author bylines e.g we will not link to pharma or real estate links on a tech article. We will usually not link to products in the byline. We will usually not link to paid, hired third-party/freelance professional writers linking to different products or services for purely for links / promotional purposes.
