How can Guest Blogging help you with your SEO Campaign?
Ever wondered why there are so many guest posts on blogs all over the Internet?
There are loads of benefits to guest blogging on relevant blogs. Most of them to do with helping your SEO.
- Backlinks - Every time you write a guest post for another blog you will be given the chance to post a backlink. This normally occurs at the bottom of the post in your author bio box. You can post links to your site, your social media profiles and your blog. Any of these links will be useful, but if you're writing for a really high quality blog that's in your industry then the link will be worth its weight in gold!
- Traffic - When people see your guest post and see you writing quality content, a lot of the time they will want to know more. That's why they're going to click your links, follow you on twitter and generally start interacting with you. This can give your site a huge boost in traffic as people come to see who the guest writer is and if they've got any other content that is of interest.
- Relationship - In order to keep the above two points relevant, form relationships with other bloggers. This is a great way to earn even more links and get even more traffic. Bloggers who see you as a friend and a relevant industry buff are much more likely to link to your site, re-tweet your tweets and share your posts on their site. All of this leads to more traffic. Don't ever underestimate the power of a good blogger friendship!
There are loads of other reasons out there, most of which relate to one of the three points above.
