In the world of marketing as a blog writer or owner, Guest blogging is seen as a powerful strategy for building your online presence, driving traffic, and establishing yourself as an authority in your niche. Who better to learn from than Neil Patel, a pioneer in digital marketing? Neil’s insights can help you leverage guest blogging to its fullest potential.

Who is Neil Patel?

Neil Patel is widely known as an accomplished digital marketing expert, successful entrepreneur, and prolific author. He is notably recognised as the co-founder of industry-leading companies such as Crazy Egg, Hello Bar, and KISSmetrics. In 2023, Forbes acknowledged Neil Patel as one of the preeminent marketers globally, cementing his status as a go-to resource for marketers worldwide through his esteemed blog, NeilPatel.

Moreover, Neil is a driving force behind NP Digital and has been lauded by The Wall Street Journal as a top influencer online.

Here are ten tips inspired by his teachings and how he has successfully applied them.

1. Identify High-Quality Blogs

The key to successful guest blogging is finding the right blogs.

Neil Patel

Neil Patel stresses the importance of carefully choosing the most appropriate blogs for guest posting. As he explains, one of the primary advantages of guest blogging is its ability to drive traffic and increase visibility for your website, products, and services. Neil advises looking for blogs with high domain authority, significant traffic, and an engaged audience. By doing so, you can greatly enhance the potential for success in your guest posting efforts.

How Neil Does It: Neil carefully researches blogs before contacting them. He uses tools like Moz’s Domain Authority Checker and Ahrefs to ensure he targets blogs with high domain authority and active readers, so his posts get maximum exposure and are seen as credible.

Here are five practical tips to find high-quality websites that accept guest posts:
  1. Advanced Search Operators: Use search phrases like “write for us,” “submit guest post,” or “guest contributors” with relevant keywords. For example, if your niche is fitness, search “write for us” + fitness. This helps you find websites actively seeking guest posts. Or if you’re a food blogger, search for “write for us” + food to find websites in your niche that accept guest posts.
  2. Social Media Outreach: Connect with industry influencers and bloggers on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. Follow them, comment on their posts, and build relationships. Many bloggers share guest posting opportunities on their social media profiles.
  3. Industry Forums: Join forums and communities related to your niche. Contribute valuable insights and establish yourself as an expert. Some forums have dedicated sections for guest posting opportunities.
  4. Guest Blogging Communities: Join platforms like MyBlogGuest or Blogger LinkUp. These communities connect guest bloggers with website owners looking for quality content.
  5. Competitor Analysis: Identify where your competitors are guest posting by searching for their author names or using tools like Ahrefs. Reach out to those websites with your own valuable content.

How to Prepare Your Website Before You Start Guest Blogging

This may be silly, but I can still remember my very first guest post going live. It was an exciting day and something I will possibly never forget. After all, it started what would later become my online career.

Even though I worked for days to complete that very first post, I didn’t take nearly as much effort to do any sort of preparations on my own site.

I mean, I just wrote the thing, linked to my homepage from the bio box, sent the article, luckily got it approved, and just sat around waiting for the surge of people who would surely quickly follow.

So how much did I gain from that first guest blogging effort, in terms of whatever benefits?

… I have no clue.

And that’s the point.

I wasn’t ready at all to welcome, measure, convert, or do anything else.

Here’s a better approach – the five things to do before you start guest blogging:

Homer Simpson’s Guide to Guest Blogging

I guess Homer Simpson isn’t your first choice when it comes to obtaining guest blogging advice, is he?

However, I was still quite surprised at how much we can learn by paying closer attention to some of his famous quotes and relating them back to guest blogging.

That being said, Homer is not a person whose advice should always be taken directly. Sometimes you’re actually way better off doing the exact opposite of what he’s saying. See for yourself:

How to Find Great Guest Post Topics in Just a Few Minutes

One particularly tough part of the job when you’re guest blogging is that a seemingly good blog post topic isn’t necessarily a good guest post topic as well.

There’s a number of factors that come into play here. Chief of which is the fact that a good guest post should be optimized to resonate with its target blog’s audience, as well as be connected with your own site’s angle and offerings.

What this comes down to is that if you want to come up with a truly great guest post topic, it will require more than just a disconnected brainstorming session that’s only happening in your brain.

The key to success here is research.

There is a way to speed things up, though (four of them, actually).

8 Habits of Blog Editors That Will Drive You Crazy!

Last week, we talked about the things that blog editors really want from you and what to do to not get on their bad side. So today, let’s flip the switch entirely and go the absolute other way around – talking about the habits and behaviors of blog editors that will drive you absolutely crazy.

Just a short disclaimer up front though. I’m not trying to suggest that the problems on this list are common. However, when they happen to you occasionally, oh they are annoying.

Okay, let’s get the list started with the biggest deal breaker:

6 Things Blog Editors Really Want From You

Guest blogging over a long period of time teaches you a lot of things … mainly in the “dealing with people” department.

Actually, I’d say that being a successful guest blogger is more about knowing how to handle interaction with editors, rather than being the best writer out there.

Of course, you do have to be able to put words and sentences together in order to make it in guest blogging. However, first of all, you have to be able to communicate effectively and listen to what blog editors have to say about your submission.

So today, let’s take a look at the six things that blog editors really want from you, your pitch, and then your article.

7 Overused Pieces of Guest Blogging Advice

Let’s end the year with a bit of a rant … because why not, right?

Well, okay, what I have for you today isn’t an awfully aggressive rant, but it still does list some of the common annoying pieces of advice that bloggers and businesses are given when the topic of guest blogging gets mentioned.

Of course, the advice itself isn’t inherently bad in any way, but the key here is doing things in moderation, instead of diving head first into everything without thinking much.

Let’s get the list started with the biggie:

Guest Blogging In Review (2014 Edition)

2014 is almost behind us, which makes it great time to look into what’s been going on in the guest blogging space in the past 12 months, as well as what we can expect in the near future.

So this post lists 20 important (and interesting) articles, tutorials, and pieces of news related to guest blogging that were published in 2014.

I have to admit, there has been a lot of talk on various related topics, and we’ve seen a number of major fluctuations and direction changes across the web. While I’m still 100 percent sure that guest blogging is here to stay and that it will only continue to gain a bigger role in brands’ marketing strategies, we surely need to adjust our tactics to make them more in tune with the current rules of web publishing.

So let’s start the list with perhaps the most significant piece of guest blogging news of 2014:
