Have you ever wondered what is a guest post? Everyone who is new to digital marketing comes across this term. Guest posts is a post that you will write on someone else’s site to get a link back to your site. This helps to increase the authority of your site.

You need to have guest posts on high-authority sites in order to increase your domain authority. If you get guest posts on spammy sites you may get penalized by Google for doing so.
What is the cost of a guest post?
You will pay according to the site’s traffic and authority. Make sure to invest in guest posts on sites that are highly relevant to your own site.

Low-quality guest posts may not be indexed on Google as Google may not find them relevant. You need to make sure that that you ask the webmaster for guest post guidelines from the webmaster first. Some sites have specific guidelines for word count. Most of the sites only accept articles that are relevant to their site.
Guest post or sponsored post?
A guest post is a post that you will write on someone’s site in order to promote your website but the webmaster may not link back to your site. Whereas for a sponsored post you will pay the webmaster to publish your guest post for a fee. In the case of a sponsored post, you will most of the time get a link back to your own site that will help to increase your site’s authority.
