What is Guest Posting?
For those who are not entirely familiar with content marketing, blogging and SEO. Guest posting is the art of writing and publishing a blog post on someone else’s blog or website. Your hard work may or may not be financially rewarding.
There is a slight difference between guest posting & being a contributor. Guest posting is more for those seeking to contribute a one-off post. Whereas being a contributor may require a degree of commitment (e.g. producing 3-5 posts a month).
Whatever you may call this process, ensuring that your posts are published only on a reputable website is necessary if you wish to benefit from the rewards of guest blogging.
