Submit guest post to Top Blogs

Updated: January 2022
After rejecting most guest posts only because the creators submit posts without doing homework, we are still open to accepting guest posts. However, please note that we are constrained to decline or reject guest posts if we find them to be of the following nature:
  • routine offer that seems to have been sent to dozens of others
  • generic post that looks copy-pasted or with no deep knowledge or experience of the subject
  • irrelevant post
  • post with inappropriate content
  • post forcing us to accept links that are not too relevant and are obviously commercial
We had to remove two posts that we had put on Top Blogs after careful editing and value addition: one was forcing us to insert certain links, and the other had published a similar post on another website (we discovered that later). After that, we have become even more circumspect when we receive stock queries for guest posting. 

The present post will help in clarifying what we expect on guest posts.

Why a guest post on Top Blogs

New bloggers are in search of good backlinks for improving SEO, and they want to write guest posts on reputed websites. Though we are not that great a website, we consider ourselves a highly ethical website, and we would help good writers get a link from here. However, to earn a backlink from us, you should write only in an area in which you have the expertise, and write well. 

Others can write guest posts too (for their clients, for promoting a product or service, and so on), but the post must add value to the content of Top Blogs and not fall in the grey areas mentioned above.

Please read the following guidelines for guest posting before you submit a guest post to us. If still not sure, write to us.
