Top reasons not to accept guest post

Reasont-Not-to-accept-guest-post
One of the top reasons for boosting traffic to a blog/website is by guest post service but it may harm your blog. Search engine are getting more smarter these days,of course you don’t want your blog to get penalize by search engine. Now a days you can find many guest posting tips over the internet but it will make your blog penalize.Your blog can accept guest post if guest posting etiquette are done properly.Google thinks that ,through guest blogging lots of junk content or spammy links are posted on the web. Many bloggers who just started a blog/website are searching for guest posting opportunities to get quality back links but not for readers and to give a link to low quality website is spam in eyes of Google.You may think that every blog/website recommends for guest posting but why we suggest not to accept guest post? Its because Google said that giving quality links to low quality site is big spam.

When Not To Accept Guest Post?

Content:- You don’t want your blog wit low quality content. Mostly guest post are of low quality content and totally unfurnished.For just seeking a backlink author can write a post for your blog which may be published or written many times by many authors.So you will not get any traffic from this post. Reader on your blog are searching for your post on your blog, not other posts because they love your style of writing and your concept on many topic,so there is a chance of losing traffic.
Writing skills:- Most writer don’t have skills of writing because they are new to blogging field and still learning.Content may not be unique and may not follow the rules of contents. Ideal post length are 500-700 words and they may not know the depth of content.Many times writer do not follow your niche while writing and thus he don’t know the content of your blog, so you cant link your previous article with the guest post(interlinking).

What to check for Guest post?

Check if he is a good writer,how his previous work?,where did he work?,did they made any traffic?,what search engine thinks about his article?Does his site well optimized,fresh and make sure its not a spammy site in front of Google?
Lastly, I would say that if you are busy in your college work or any other work for which you are not getting time for frequent updates then you make guest posting guidelines for your blog.Remember to check writer english and grammar errors.Content must be unique and under stable by your reader and lastly check that post is published else where or not and if published then convince your writer to check his content on guest posting site test about his article.Before accepting guest post check that are you satisfied with posts or not?
Let us know you’re your point of view on guest posting service.
Peace and happy blogging.

3 tips for writing keyword rich content for seo

Keyword-rich-content
Yesterday I shared 3 tips to add photo gallery using jQuery and zoom effect and today I will share how to write contents  full of keywords that makes your blog famous for and you can change your writing  style to make your content seo friendly and it will help to increase search engine visibility.

1. Start with keywords

Select your keyword first. Remember to look at google analytics dashboard for the keywords that your blog is getting from search engine. Now take 2 or 3 keywords and search it on google that what topic are written on those keywords. What are the question,phrases or any content made? If you are newbie then look for medium competitive keywords and take a look at the value of searches that are getting monthly and choose high value keywords.For getting idea use Google adwords keyword tools that will show you how many users are searching for your phrases and get suggest some more phrases and note it down in a paper. Remember not to use same phrase for many times,say,if you get “John Photography”, you can use it for once or twice and you can use after like “John” and “Photography” separately in other ways.
Over optimizing your phrase,you may get punished by Google,Bing and other search engine and your post may get neglect by bots.
Your post title must be unique that must use keyword rich content then your success is at you door and your post will continue attract more visitors to your blog or websites for year making your blog popular is search engine.

2. Check your content

You have finished writing your post,so now its time to look at your entire phrase or keywords that you used for this post.
Points to check:
  • Is your post title contain keywords or phrases?
  • Did your post can explain keywords that you use in your title?
  • Did you use the same phrase for more then two times?
  • Will your post satisfy your readers query?
By writing content rich keyword post you are not finished with your work.You need to share it on social media like facebook,twitter and other social sharing site. More over you must discuss about your post or blog on forums or blogs. If you can do guest post on other blog.
Let Google know your blog,content and then you no need to look back.

Be Master of Your Content

Produce such a great content so that other bloggers are bound to read your content. Although I am huge fan of writing SEO content, I never look back while thinking of SEO optimizing post. Blogs are often more conversational , so try to engage your readers by asking question and made keep them to stay loner by your post(It will help search engine to think about the importance of your page ).
Search engine focus on the words in links,means you might want user to read other topic on your blog, so you recommend them by a link that says “click here”. Instead of this  use a phrase and put link in it.
For Search Engine Traffic Follow These Steps:
  • Give importance on each blog post with your heart and soul.
  • Try to use keywords in first part of your post and often in your blog post.
  • Title must be keywords that you used in your entire post.
  • Remember to satisfy readers with your content.
  • Make in bound links with other post of your blog/website.
Hope you will enjoy the post and we wish all the best in your blogging life.Feel free to post comments for any suggestion or comments.
Peace and happy blogging.
