Guest Posting Opportunities
In yesterday’s interview, Jordan McCollum talked about how she made a name for herself in the blogosphere by becoming a contributing writer and later assistant editor of Marketing Pilgrim by way of a successful guest post.
In the spirit of guest posting, here is a list of blog that are offering guest posting opportunities:
The very popular SEOMoz (12,000+ readers) offers ongoing opportunities to be featured on the SEOMoz main site.
How it works: You submit a post to the user section of the blog called YouMoz. Members then give it a thumbs up or thumbs down and add their comments. If the post is popular enough, it moves over to the main SEOMoz blog.
Here’s a chance to really get some notoriety. SEOMoz is hosting a landing page contest for their premium subscription services.
How it works: You create a landing page that will be randomly used in a multi-variate testing environment. The landing page with the most conversions wins! Read Rand Fishkin’s post about the contest and be sure to read Roberta Rosenberg’s review of the current landing page for some ideas.

A different perspective
Here’s an idea:
Set up a Google Alert with the keyword guest blogger and set it to blogs to be alerted when bloggers are actively seeking guest posts.
- Do you know of any other sites looking for guest bloggers?
- Have you ever been a guest blogger? What kind of results and opportunities did the experience bring?
- Have you ever had a guest poster on your blog? How did it turn out?
