There are three reasons why guest posting is a key technique for every blogger to build and increase their online influential area:
1. Guest posting make friendly relationships
All Bloggers need good and quality content. You can enhance the value of others’ blog, by being a good guest blogger. In this way, you’re going to have good relationships with other bloggers.
Bloggers involves in large percentage of conversations occurring on the Internet, especially on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. They can have a drastic effect, which makes them good friends to have with.

2. Guest posting is good for search engines
The one unavoidable fact you should consider for guest-posting is:
The host blogger must include a backlink generally in the start or end of your blog in the post somewhere.
In the passage of time, these backlinks will increase the value of your blog and posts to search engines, by making your content easier to find via Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines.
3. Guest posting meets you to new people
Probably, the best part of guest posting is that it provides you to enter an already well-flourished forum, and distribute your message. It helps you to connect with new blog people, which can ultimately benefit you, if you do it right.
If you’re extending words in the discussion, you’re going to see that will convert your effort in bringing more readers, fans, and followers to your blog. Conversely, if you are only asking or selling, you may get famous, but with a reputation that perhaps nobody wants.
Share your words. Help more people. Be patient. And after some time, you’ll win.
What about people guest-posting on your site?
One should also like other people to guest post on their site. If you don’t already done it, you should consider to allow guest posting on your blog.
If you’re seeking ways to guest post on others’ blogs, then allowing this also makes sense. It makes the relationship mutual you’ve developed with the host blogger to be.
Some bloggers will even blog about their guest post and link to it from their own blog (giving you some great link juice). Personally, I’m a fan of this practice.
The first rule of being a good guest
When I guest post for someone else, I do the following:
- Link the post to my blog
- Promote it on Twitter as many times
- Share it on Facebook profile and page
- Thank the blog owner
- Follow the post and answer to the comments on the post
While not every blogger practice this, it’s not a bad idea. It’s always better to get your name included into new blogging communities.
