SEO can be one of the trickiest elements in getting your site to soar up the search rankings. It’s a process I both love and loathe.
Instead of choosing to focus on placing our link on some shady network of high PR sites or commenting on hundreds of sites in the hopes of finding a do-follow link, we choose to abide by a more longterm and quality controlled process – guest posting.
Now before I get into the thick of things I would like to make it clear that learning how to guest post isn’t the only way to get quality backlinks for your site (aka links on other sites that link to a page on your site, helping it to rank for a certain keyword), but it is a surefire way to get high quality links on relevant sites that will not only pass on some link juice but will promote you (and your site) as an expert on the topic you’re writing about.
So here I am sitting in our hotel lobby in Koh Samui, Thailand, killing time before our flight to Krabi. Usually I would use this time wisely to get some solid work done, yet today I find myself creeping Pinterest, doing anything but working. An almost-daily occurrence in my work routine.
Typically I would guilt myself about wasting work hours on non-work tasks, but today I’m saying to hell with guilt.
Why? Oh maybe it’s because Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social networks we’ve seen so far.
Or maybe it’s because it is a never-ending source of inspiration for future posts.
Or maybe it’s because in the last 90 days, Pinterest has brought over 500,000 unique visitors to just one of our sites.
