7 mistakes that you avoid in your guest articles should
Guest contributions are important.
You’ve probably already understood. (If not, then read this post here).
Some call it the secret weapon of blogging. Others say they are a round-success packet.
One thing is clear: Without guest posts you’ll never be able to build a well-known blog – at least not quickly.
But as easy as it sounds, sometimes it’s not.
write bloggers, offer contribution, contribution is published, you celebrate going, you make money in your sleep.
Especially when guest blogging can go wrong.
Because you come to a foreign stage. It’s like a “guest” of a band in a strange city. Location strangers, foreign audiences.
Have you ever been on a family meal of a large family of a completely different culture? There are here so many things that you can do wrong.
The same thing happens when guest blogging.
So that you do not take along any Fettnäpchen this world, I have collected mistakes you should avoid.
Conversely: your guest posts are then all the rage.
- You keep the best ones for you back
The biggest mistake you can make when writing guest articles, is this: You send your second best contribution.
It is to start as you do with a bad song a concert. Who should then pray tell even buy your CD?
A guest post is like a large-scale harassment. In the moment when you come to the blog to the host, you buhlst to the audience’s favor. And that will only work if you hergibst the best of what you have.
You get no second chance for a first impression.
So Deliver always your best content from a guest post.
“But then I have nothing more for my blog!” I am open times: When you after 10 contributions out of ideas, then blogging is just not your thing.
Anyway, how can you run out of ideas when we here but have 100 headlines for you, you can also make a product. And here another 41 blog article ideas.
- You are linking not on the host
Imagine: Someone comes to you for a visit and ignored your device. He ignored the food. The deco. Just everything.
So it is when a guest post has no links to the contents of the host.
Therefore: Always try on contents of the host to link.
So you show that you know the blog that you have read the article and the most important thing: you show recognition.
Of course, you should put Slimer links not only. You have to really deal with the blog and know the contents.
- Your guest post is a one-night stand
Add a review, publish, leave.
This is the blogger one-night stand. And unfortunately, there are too many of them still.
I’ll say it again: The valuable to a commentary is not a link or clicks. The valuable is the relationship with the host. Because if the relationship is true, then he will often link to you, mentioning you and always put in a good word for you in forums and chats.
So easy. So important. But so often ignored.
That’s why you should always use the relationship to continue.
Question the blogger. How were the clicks? How satisfied he is with the reaction of the reader? What would he have done differently?
to be able to thank you again in a mail for the opportunity to write for him. As a thank you. Not immediately Please turn clapping and offer the next “cooperation”.
Link to the host regularly in your articles and make him aware. He will be grateful to you. He will keep you well remembered.
Caring up for the people. Not for the clicks.
- You are promoting not like a wild sow
Some bloggers do not take guest posts to more.
Because too many “freeloaders” the guest blogging have ruined. These parasites write guest posts, but do not reveal the its audience.
Example: Blogger G has 2,000 email subscribers. He wants a guest post for bloggers write X who has “only” 1,000 email subscribers.
Blogger G then published his commentary, but does not tell his 2,000 subscribers modest. Blogger X but already.
The result: Only Blogger G benefits. Blogger X is “empty” from.
I think this is an outrage – and even petty.
If I am afraid that my readers migrate to the host, then my blog is simply not good enough. If I am convinced of my blog, I’m not afraid my 2,000 readers to send to the neighbor.
So if you write guest posts, then they promote to your email list on all your social media channels.
Spread the post better than your own. Thus, the performance of the article will be better and the visitors happy.
That you open new doors again.
Think long term please – and not to the current clicks.
- You are offended as a liverwurst
If you’re going to write guest posts, there will be setbacks. No question.
That blogger you ignore, reject, or maybe even laugh, which is as safe as the cheers in the pub.
If you then snapped pack your bags and bloggers “the hell” send, then you lose.
Better: question again. Improve your headline. And then ask again. Improve your style. And then ask again.
Who knocks will also open.
Second, you should not be offended if your text, your sacred cow, is touched. Of course, the “big bloggers” will again edit the text and correct.
If you see yourself then injured in your artist heart, then you will not get far.
Think of it rather as: You can get a stylistic analysis of a Grand Master.
- You are linking into the blue
At the end of a guest contribution you may often on your blog link. Most then link simply on their homepage.
Evil error – at least in most cases.
If your home is an ordinary blog page with many articles about God and the world, then you should not link to the homepage.
After all you want to but bind the new reader. All you need is a page that collects the reader, takes her hand and leads in your email list.
In technical jargon, the “Landing Page” means. The reader “lands” there. The first impression is crucial.
The reader must know within seconds …
- what is at stake here.
- what he gets here.
- why he should you subscribe.
An example of a landing page? Simply Home from monkeys blog.
If your home is not a landing page, then build a specially and then link directly to this.
But please do not go back to the overloaded home with the last 40 blog articles.
Note: You have the reader by the hand take – not slain with Content.
- You’re a show-off
Let the author description.
They usually write the guest author himself. It shows mainly because the inside stuck many “informers terms” there.
Authors then write their achievements in the description – of the school paper up to the Federal Cross of Merit.
But I’ll tell you something: It interests the reader a damn.
The reader will not know what you have achieved. He wants to know what you can do for him.
And by the way: self-praise stinks on the Internet.

This text refers to the benefits to the reader. In addition, at the end linked to the landing page of the e-book, so the reader can quickly skim the gift.
Do not forget: The reader is the most important person blogging – not the blogger.
They were now the worst mistakes of guest blogging. If you avoid these mistakes, then you belong already felt to the top 90 percent.
For what else is offered as a commentary, unfortunately, is often very underground.
Just because bloggers have built so much crap when guest blogging, this technique has come into disrepute.
Help to again give us the guest blogging the splendor it deserves.
At the end everyone wins: The host, the guest author and the audience.
