In this article the term “webmaster” stands for the person you are submitting the guest post to - be it a content distributor, blog owner, or actual website owner. As you can tell by the title, here is a bunch of guest posting tips. It is advisable that you follow these tips if you do not want the webmaster to reject your guest post, and for if you wish to gain permission to post again in the future.
No foul language unless it suit’s the site
My swearing on the “My Little Pony” site did not go down very well with the 9 year olds.
Unless the website is already littered with swear words you should probably avoid swearing on your guest post. Even if other posts have essay writing tutorials with swearing in them it may be a good idea to ask permission first.
Don’t link without permission
Especially to Hooters.
You are probably only writing on the site because you want to link to your site. Nevertheless you need to ask the webmaster how it should be done. They may prefer it to be done in the “Author Bio” section.
Don’t write about something you know nothing about
You are not a love guru….honestly
Your guest post will be full of holes, and if we assume that the readership will probably be littered with experts in the field you are writing about--it is probably better to stick to what you know.
Don’t write about a different subject to the proposed one
Even if you just discovered Mexican food and you feel that the “New Scientist” website needs to know
Your post will simply be rejected by the webmaster.
Don’t be controversial unless you discussed it with the webmaster first
You are dumb and I can smell you from here.
Some webmasters will “go with it”, but others will just reject your post, so it is best to discuss it with the webmaster first.
Don’t post crappy poor quality content because it is not your site
Save the crap for a toilet showroom.
This is rude and you are setting yourself up for a bad reputation that may linger longer than a fat girl at an ice cream stand.
Don’t copy content because it is not your site
People hate copies, that is why your twin was sent to Canada
If the webmaster posts it and finds out its copied then he/she will seek revenge.
Do not encourage criminal behavior
Top ten tips on mugging your grandma in the bathtub is doomed to failure.
There are few webmasters that will accept this type of material.
Do not try to incite rate hatred
The ********rs wont like it.
If you are going to do it then make sure you discuss it with the webmaster first, and maybe produce a short preview of the points you are going to make.
Dish out some high quality content
Throw in a few “Thee’s” and “Thou’s”. It worked well for Shakespeare.
It is very poor etiquette to not do so.
Try to make the post at least a little link bait orientated
Or at least add in a picture of a cat in a predicament
It is in your interest to have people link to it if it is going to link to your domain.
Don’t make up facts
I’ve slept with 200 people
It ruins your online creditability and will act as an advert for your own idiocy.
Make sure your research on the subject is sound
Even if Donald Duck did say it…
It makes good sense more than anything. You do not want to attach your name to a post, and have it followed by 290 comments calling you an idiot.
Do not slander the webmaster, website or its partners
Even if his mother is of dubious morals
Do not produce anything that may be misconstrued as libel
Don’t accuse the paraplegic community of being lazy, because they won’t stand for it.
It will probably be rejected by the webmaster.
If you give an opinion then make sure it is clear that it is yours and not the webmaster’s
“We all agree god hates short people” is not going to go down very well
The aim is to please the webmaster. Making an opinion sound like theirs instead of yours may cause them problems that are easily otherwise avoided.
Check your grammar and spelling before you send it to them for review
Get your kids to do it…apparently they know everything
This is good etiquette and manners too.
Make sure you proofread your work before you send it for review
Buy milk, eggs, drywall
There will be something in there that you wish wasn’t. Proofread it just to be sure you didn’t mix your grocery list in with it.
Don’t skimp on the title
How to tickle a cougar’s dangler and get away with it
Make it exciting. If people don’t get past the title then what is the point of guest posting?
