Guest Blogging as a (Promotional) Link Building Strategy

    Can I write a guest post for ya? :)

    Wow, what a wealth of information. Thanks! Off to go read the suggested “Thou Shalt Not Suck” article. :)

  3. You’ve hit on some interesting points. I think the pre-conceived idea most people have, is that they have to be an ‘expert’ on the subject, when if they would just approach it from a personal level, the readers would be able to relate to it, such as ‘My first Yoga class’, or, ‘A Redneck Tackles Ballet’. If you’re an expert in the subject, fine; if not, approach it from your perspective.

    Chance… hit me up with a potential topic and some examples via my contact form and we’ll see. ;-)

    Love the examples of the horizontal guest blogging. Had an idea about that before but not as expansive as you put it here, thanks Rae =)

  6. Great stuff! I like the horizontal idea a lot. And the linking rule. I HATE sites that just shove a random link to another piece of their content somewhere in their post…
