Guest blogging has always been popular as a way to build backlinks but with Google much more vigilant than ever, the demand for guest blogging opportunities is exploding. Guest blogging is considered the ultimate in legitimate back link building that is “Google Proof.”
Here are just a few of the reasons why guest blogging is so hot right now.
- Many blog owners will readily accept well-written content
- You don’t need to pay if you are writing your own content (and when you do pay to have a post published, the cost is very modest compared to advertising)
- Unlike a paid ad, a post can be shared widely on social networks
However at the same time guest blogging does have its problems.
- You need to be a good writer and know what you are writing about or blog owners won’t accept your content
- Writing quality content takes a lot of time and effort
- Finding blogs that will publish your content and contact blog owners one-by-one is very time consuming
- Most every blog owner wants original content forcing you to write numerous unique posts
BUT, the good news! This can all be automated.
BacklinkMTRO.com is taking a different approach to the guest posting market and other link building tactics. Instead of just focusing on getting your content out there and making a quick buck, BLM is not only offering guest blogging but they are also implementing comments and contextual links in to their marketing as well. With contextual links, your selected anchor text can be highlighted in an existing post – so you don’t need to write anything!
Another thing makes BackLinkMetro stand out from the average guest posting service is that they don’t charge high upfront costs of $100-$200 per guest post. Instead they have a monthly member plan that allows you to pay a small amount for your content and links to go active on sites. This means you can slowly add new incoming links to your site every few days and not have to shell out a ton of money.
Below you see how BLM breaks down their membership levels and how many credits they offer for each. The $49 package includes 1,000 credits, then when you scroll down you will see a PR5 post will only cost 80 credits per month. Now you can see how effective it is to scale your campaigns out over time with little cost. To put the cost in perspective, you can have a post on fifty PR3 blogs for 30 days for $49. That is a lot of really great SEO juice for a very small investment.
Built into the BacklinkMETRO software is a scheduler so that you can naturally place 1 or 2 posts a day. This is the same rate you might chive if guest blogging or link building by hand.
So what makes BackLinkMETRO different from closed blog networks that have had problems in the past?
BLM answers this question with the following: We don’t own any of the blogs on which your links are placed. The blogs are owned and managed by publishers who’ve opted to belong to our network. Over time, the blogs in our network change and evolve, as publishers join or leave according to their own preference. Therefore, your links are placed on independent blogs exactly as if you had contacted these blog owners one by one and asked for backlinks on their site. Your backlinks appear to be organic and natural, and there is no identifiable “footprint” for Google to detect.
The service is built for both advertisers and publishers. This means that you can start buying link building services through their site or you can sign up as publisher and start selling placements on your site. There is also the option for you to sign up as both within the same account.
