What is a Guest posting?

Guest post is an off-page SEO technique to acquire a backlink from another relevant site by contributing articles, infographics, etc.

No doubt there are black hat techniques to acquire backlinks from sites but guest post contribution is one of the safest and result-driven technique.

How to find guest posting sites?

The sites that accept the guest article usually have one dedicated page named write for us or about us.

However, there are billions of sites on the internet and every website has a different purpose and targets different types of audiences. 

So it is a quite cumbersome task to find websites that accept a guest post of your niche. Because it is necessary to take backlinks from relevant sites otherwise google will find it as manual backlink building and can take some action against the website in terms of penalty.

Let’s understand this phenomenon with one example. Suppose, if you have a website that is selling healthcare-based products and one site that is technology-based and provides services like website development and digital marketing linking to your site. 

In this case, google find it suspicious because both niches are different and there is no correlation between them. So, be careful while taking backlinks from sites.
