A Guide to MyBlogGuest
MyBlogGuest is the largest marketplace for guest bloggers to meet with people who want guest posts. Landing a guest blogging gig on this site is extremely simple: just contact a blogger who’s looking for someone like you, make a pitch and you’re done. Best of all – it’s free!
Keep in mind that MyBlogGuest is best for landing moderate PageRank or moderate traffic sites. High profile blogs like TechCrunch or Tim Ferris’ blog simply aren’t on MyBlogGuest. Instead, to land first and second tier blogs, you should go directly to the blog’s author and make your pitch.
However, for moderate rankings and PageRank sites, there’s nothing easier than MyBlogGuest.
==> The “Looking for a Guest Author” Section
Start in this section. This is where bloggers who want to look for guest authors go to advertise.
Begin by selecting a sub-category. If your site applies to multiple categories, look in multiple categories. For example, if you run a site about hedge funds, you could look in both the business section and the finance section.
Look at all the listings by webmasters. Pick out the ones that make sense for you, based on what your site is about, their site’s traffic and their site’s PageRank.
Contact them and make your pitch. If you have a good site and a good pitch, chances are you’ll get the gig!
==> The “Looking for a Blog” Section
This section is where you, the guest blogger, can post your own ad. The best way to get a high volume of writing requests is to post in this section, as well as reply to posts in the “looking for a guest author” section.
This section is also great for highly niched blogs and blogs that tackle a fringe topic. For example, you might run a blog about caring for puffer fish. You’d have a hard time finding a puffer fish site in the “looking for a guest author” section. However, someone who runs a site about pet photography might see your post and contact you.
Look through other people’s posts and see what catches your eye. Write your post in a manner that’s both attention catching and informative.
==> The Articles Gallery
The articles gallery is where you can post your own pre-written articles for other webmasters to use. All they need to do is attribute the article to you in the signature.
This is different than article directories, in that each article can only be used once. Once a webmaster puts it on their site, the article is removed by the articles gallery. There are no duplicate content issues.
The best way to use MyBlogGuest, as with any other community, is to become an active member and contribute. Build your reputation and use the site to rack up dozens upon dozens of backlinks.
