Which websites accept guest blogs?

Hi, I'm looking to spread my wings into the wonderful world of guest blogging, not really after more work (I have plenty) but I enjoy sharing my knowledge and interacting with other folk.

Hi Kate!

Thanks for your question, I think there are lots of websites always out for new articles to share with their readers! Sourcebottle is a great place to start looking for guest posting spots. I've done a few articles for Dynamic Business as well, and they seem fairly open to getting new writers providing that the content is of a certain quality. 

We also welcome guest bloggers on our site, and you can submit an article easily by following this link: http://www.savvysme.com.au/article/create  (you need to be logged in) We approve articles within 48 hours and you will get a notification of when it is approved and published.

We want to create a space where small business owners can feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and not be afraid to start writing. Our community is welcoming of all sorts of content so there will always be eyeballs on the articles :). 

I'm actually pretty excited, I've managed to get the team here to participate in an internal blogging challenge where we will blog everyday (weekday) for the month of January :)!! We have some new writers here, so it should be a great learning experience - we welcome any members at SavvySME to join us as well, and it's great to get more writing experience (even though you Ms Kate don't need it ;) ) and a great way to share your thoughts in a consistent manner. 

I would love for you to join us and encourage other business owners and freelancers to take on this challenge and grow our comfort zones ;)!!

Excellent thanks Wendy, I'll definitely send some articles your way. I've had one published on Dynamic Business http://www.dynamicbusiness.com.au/blogs/predicting-the-next-google-algorithm-06122012.html And have one lined up with Problogger which is exciting.

Don't forget to sign up for the BloggerLinkUp, which has great blogs in a variety of niches. I used MyBlogGuest for awhile but it's a lot of sorting to find worthy sites to post on.  Worth a look, though.

Thanks for Sourcebottle Kealey - I'll take a look at that.

Hi Kate,

The best way to spread your wings in guest blogging, is to actually prospect and find guest blogging websites.

You can do this a few ways:

1. Create profiles on guest blogger/outreacher websites and pitch there. Here is a link to a top few - http://www.searchenginejournal.com/9-networks-you-can-use-for-guest-blogging-and-blogger-outreach-2/50801/ 

2. Doing guest blog related query searches based on your targeted keyword to find relevant sites. This tool , this tool  and this page  can be of help.

3. Once you refine and find a consistent pattern of new sites/contacts then you can try to see who their influencers are using tools like topsy of followerwonk to find similar website owners.

Otherwise in answer to your question maybe you can mimic Kristie Hines strategy and target the SEO heavy weight sites.

Good luck.

Many websites and blogs accept guest posts. I would recommend going to Google and typing in the niche market you are looking to write in, then also add "write for us" into the phrase. This will provide you with a ton of lists and opportunies. You can see a few examples of how this would be set up below.

"seo blogs write for us"

"sports blogs write for us"

"blogging tips contributors"

"copywriting blogs guest post submissions"

Also, you can view this list of sites accepting guest blog posts as well.

I don't have any specific websites but, I've had some success with blog outreach by using different variations of Google search parameters.

Example: 

Google Search: inurl:guest AND inurl:post + "Keyword"

Google Search: inurl:guest AND inurl:blog + "Keyword"

Hope that helps ;)

One phrase. Go Grouphigh and you'll never go dry. This is quite a under-the-radar service offering but they are rolling it out across the US and slowly in Australia.

It's a fantastic platform for not only discovering guest bloggers but managing workflow processes in the goal of getting that valuable link pointing to your site.  I am currently using it for my clients and lovin' it. Let me know what you think of it!

Cheech is this enterprise level tool?

Chee Chun (Cheech) Foo

Chee Chun (Cheech) Foo, Director at Ignite Search

Given the platform capabilities, it could be said that it is geared enterprise companies or larger agencies looking to reach out to a significant number of guest bloggers at any one time, but I reckon Vahe that even smaller agencies or owners of small businesses can utilise GroupHigh effectively. Of course, being a new platform there are learning curves and there's that resource commitment needed to both reach out to the people and write the content, so that could be a barrier to smaller businesses considering whether or not to sign up to GroupHigh in the first place.
