Guest blogging is the best way to increase the visibility of your blog. After google penguin, guest blogging still remains a viable means for building backlinks, get good amount of traffic and subscribers, and high page rank (PR) backlinks to your blog that will have a drastic effect on your page ranking.
With all these benefits of guest blogging, many bloggers are still reluctant to start making guest post. Because of this reluctance to start guest blogging, I have decided to consider some benefits of guest blogging with you.
Below are some of the benefits of guest blogging.
#1. Increasing Targeted Traffic To Your Blog
If you want real targeted traffic to your blog, then you should spend some time to compose a nice article for other blogs related to your niche. When your post is published, you have the chance of receiving new targeted visitors and increase your page views.
#2. Search Engine Credibility
Backlinks still remains the backbone of SEO. Google ranks pages base on some criteria among which are number of backlinks that is the number of URL pointing to your blog. Guest blogging is a means to get some quality backlinks to your blog without risking search engines’ wrath. After penguin update, a lot of blogs have to face google’s penalty because google thinks these bloggers have being involved in link spamming. As a result some blogs were demoted from their search engine ranking positions. Those who promoted their blog through guest blogging didn’t have to face any penalty because their linking looks natural. So if you really need a natural link that will make your blog secure, then use guest blogging.
#3. Establish Authority In Your Niche
If you want to become an authority in your niche, then you should start guest blogging right away. For people to believe you are an expert in your field, they need to see your post in other blogs which may include top blogs in your niche. When they read your post from different sources, they will have the impression that you are an expert.
#4. Getting Client To Write For
This is very useful if you are considering freelance writing. When you write articles for different blogs, bloggers may decide to hire you to write for their blogs or write a sales letter for them. To get clients who will pay you handsomely for your articles, you need to first sacrifice some articles as guest post.
#5. To Create An Online Resume
If you want to create a writng profile online, guest blogging is the best approach. When you write an article, and the article is approved, keep the link and use it for reference purpose. If you have being to some paid to write site, a sample of your work is needed, if you have written articles for different blogs, you can link to those post and your chance of getting a client will increase.

#6. Reaching Out To A Wider Audience
If you have a new blog, no doubt you have very few subscribers and if your blog does have a decent amount of subscribers, you’ll definitely want to increase your subscribers. Still, the best approach to this is guest blogging. Your target should be to write for top blogs, this does not mean you must write for top blogs only, you can also write for lower blogs with good PR too. When your post is published, your story will get to a wider audience because every post published on their blog gets to their subscribers through feeds and other means. With this you can spread your message to a wider audience.
#7. Make Your Content Go Viral
If you make a guest post to a top blog, you have access to what they have, that is their twitter followers, facebook fans, feedburner subscribers and more. Most blogs enable auto tweet and facebook share. With this, your content can go viral on social sites especially on twitter. Your post on these social sites will be posted through the blog’s owner profile and a lot of them do get retweets and facebook shares.
