After Penguin and Panda, two huge algorithm updates Google rolled out, online marketersfeel back to quality content as base for linkbuilding. Aside from good and tested basic strategies for building quality sites like with high quality content, regular updates and social media marketing, marketers are also reaching out to other bloggers and websites in order to build power links.
The process entails one site owner to seek other sites with similar or relevant niche to his and request for a guest posting. This strategy is mutually beneficial to the guest poster and the blog owner. The owner benefits from quality posts without expense and effort and the poster gets to include backlinks to his/her own site.
This process is however, very tedious and tiresome. A blogger can spend days searching for relevant sites, sending request emails, and wait for days before the site owner sends back a response which is not always guaranteed to be favorable.But owners and bloggers need not despair; there is better way of dealing with the guest posting leg work, through the blogger outreach networks.
