Increase Blog Traffic with Guest Posting

A guest post is a post written by another blogger or a guest and posted on your blog. However, you could also be asked to provide a guest post on someone's blog.

Guest posting is beneficial to increasing your blog traffic in several ways. Let's first look at the situation if you are the guest blogger.

Being a Guest Blogger

When a blog owner contacts you and asks you to write a guest post, it is an excellent opportunity for you to grow your blog. First, when you write your post you are introducing yourself and your blog to a whole new group of readers.  Second, your post will include a link back to your blog, which will help with page rank and your popularity with Google.  As a result of this post, you have increased your followers, page views and hopefully page rank.  Additionally, if you can post on a blog that has a higher page rank than yours, you can really enhance your position with Google.

Host a Guest Blogger

The first thing that inviting someone to be a guest blogger does is creates a great relationship with a fellow blogger.  One thing I have learned about blogging is that everyone helps each other.  In most cases, you will not find an "everyone for themselves attitude."  Another benefit of a guest blogger is that your blog will have a post of great content.  Second, the guest will more than likely create a link from their site to yours.  Again, this is a benefit for page rank.  This link will also bring the guest blogs readers to your blog.

So in conclusion, guest blogging is beneficial both when you are the guest blogger and when you are the host.


  1. Stopping by from TTH. I'm following you on twitter, hope you can stop by and follow back. Thanks!

  2. You are so right on with this post. I actually do open my blog up for guest writers every single Thursday. I love to spotlight other women and other points of view. The one thing that I believe is that if someone guest posts on your blog they should write original content and should not post it on their own blog as well. They should link to their guest post but not post all in their own blog. Guest posting should benefit both parties but when a person post the same post they wrote for you on their blog it is a one way transaction they get my readers to come to their blog but their readers have no need to come to mine because they can just read the post on the page that they are already at. Well that is my two cents.

  3. Do you have a list of blogs that need guest bloggers? Hhehe. Or here?
