How to Write Great Guest Post to Boost Your Blog Credibility

Guest posting is a popular way to raise your blog popularity and credibility. It is better than regular article marketing because you are aiming directly to your intended audience. Here are some tips on How to write great guest post to boost your blog credibility

You don’t want to submit regular content for guest post because it will do no good for your credibility. If you want to be known as an expert blogger in your niche, make sure to give your best content in your guest post. Remember that your blog will get read by thousands of regular blog readers. So, you have to establish good impression on them.

2. The word count should be 1000+ words :

The length of your guest post shouldn’t be less than 1000 words. This length is important because the longer your post, the higher perceived value it has. Sure, some host blogs will allow you to publish guest post under 1000 words, but you should give more. You are trying to establish credibility with your guest post, not just to place link in other blogs.

3. Use image for your guest post :

It is good for you to use professional stock photo for your guest post. You can purchase a license of one professional stock photo at only $1 or less in various stock photo websites. Image will increase the professionalism of your guest post. So, remember to include at least one image in your guest post.

4. Submit your guest post to popular blog :

Before submitting your guest post, make sure to choose the best blog for your post. The first consideration should be the traffic of that blog. If the blog is receiving high amount of traffic every month, it is a good place to submit your guest post. You want to attract as much readers as possible so that you can boost your credibility quickly and easily. However, keep in mind that popular blogs will have strict rules on their guest post.
