Before you choose a blog for guest post, there are many things you will consider;
(1) Blog traffic quality: here I don’t mean high traffic blog, instead quality traffic that will convert to your intended products or services. So many people make mistakes by paying very high advertising fee on entertainment blogs not knowing that their reader may not be very interested in any other things apart from cheap leisure. So, while publishing your guest post, make sure you choose a blog that already have a well defined readers. We call it marketable audience. If you want to sell an eBook on how to make money online, then publish your guest post on blogs that writes about wealth creation, investment or business opportunities.
(2) Blog Domain Authority: According to DMOZ “Domain Authority is a score (on a 100-point scale) developed by Moz that predicts how well a website will rank on search engines. Use Domain Authority when comparing one site to another or tracking the “strength” of your website over time.” This is very vital signal in search engine ranking. It could be difficult to know which domain have high authority but we have done this research for you came out with the top 10 blogs.
(3) Domain page rank: The higher the Page Rank, the greater the potential for that page to rank well. It’s usually ranked from 0-10. So, you will benefit better if you publish a guest post on blogs that have high page ranks.
(4) Acceptability of Guest Post: You will agree with me that not all blogs accept guest post. The few ones that do accept guest post have stringent content quality guidelines that almost disqualifies most new blogs who just want to get awareness. This is a serious case in blogging industry. I have personally sent over 1,000 guest posting request and over 100 turned down my articles while 700 plus did not even respond. This makes the whole thing to be frustrating. Don’t worry, I have researched on those quality blogs that will accept your guest post here in Nigeria.
