The author of this guest post has long decided to make a living exclusively on-line. That was 5 years ago, and he never looked back.
In this time, I learned a lot of cool things about the Internet, and I made acquaintances and friends with many interesting folks from around the world. Since I’m doing this full-time, I regularly come across useful communities and resources which turn out instrumental to advancing my career and getting increased results from my efforts.
But none of it really compares to My Blog Guest: this is simply my best find after 5 years as a webmaster.
As many of you know, guest posting is currently one of the hottest and most effective strategies when it comes to networking with other sites. Or as many crudely put it: guest posting is probably the most powerful and accessible link building tactic currently available.
Further, MBG is the largest guest posting community in the world.
For these two reasons alone, it should not be difficult to understand why this website was my best find after 5 years as a webmaster. For those who are not familiar with MBG, let’s look at some of the key benefits available to all who join in.
Massive networking opportunities
With well over 10,000 registered members (some of whom run multiple websites), and growing at a steady pace, it’s obvious that MBG has already secured a solid user base. But while the sheer quantity of contacts looks impressive at first sight, what really sets the difference are the high quality standards.
Not to say everything it perfect about this community, and occasionally you may come across members who don’t quite realize what guest posting is all about. But if you know what you’re doing, it won’t take you more than 5 minutes to locate some exciting guest posting opportunities. This is true irrespective of your niche and whether your focus is submitting content or hosting guest articles at your website (or both).
Highly productive environment
From the ground up, my blog guest has been designed to be a highly productive guest posting environment. The core of this community is a forum with 7 main sections: introduction, guest blogging contests, looking for guest authors, looking for blogs, social media sharing help, plus an exclusive section with advanced tips and tricks to maximize your guest blogging efforts.
Additionally to the forum, there is also an article gallery where content writers and bloggers can easily and quickly distribute and request original content. While the format is not exactly ground-breaking, it works brilliantly for the designated purposes. The user interface is nicely streamlined, making it extremely easy for all participants to find exactly what they want.
If you’re used to looking for guest posts by contacting webmasters at random, you will be amazed with how faster you can get things done at MBG.
Extremely friendly community of professionals
While the website itself is very practical, it wouldn’t be of much use if not for the massive community of regular participants. It’s hard not to be positively impressed with the environment of friendly professionalism that is cultivated at My Blog Guest.
I’ve been a regular participant in this community for nearly one year now, and overall my experience has been strikingly positive – both as content creator and webmaster.
There are many serious webmasters and seasoned content creators within the MBG community, and that is ultimately what makes it the prime resource for guest posting. It’s also what makes this community such a valuable avenue for any webmaster looking to expand his web presence, as well as establishing collaborations and partnerships with like-minded people.
The triumph of the Article Gallery
Using the MBG forums for networking is simple enough, but the real triumph of this community is arguably the Article Gallery. At the moment, more than 30,000 articles have been distributed through it: original, high quality articles in a wide range of niches written by hundreds of authors from all imaginable walks of life.
The article gallery further simplifies the process of arranging guest posts, trimming down on the time you’ll have to spend making contacts and placing the emphasis on quality content.
If you’re a publisher, you will find hundreds of fresh articles every day, which you can request publication rights to with a single click. If you’re an author, you just need to add an original article to the gallery – and provided it’s interesting, it won’t take 24 hours until you get offers from a bunch of interested webmasters looking to publish it.
Quality and links to/from discerning webmasters
For all its features and its massive community, My Blog Guest would regardless not be as influential, if not for a distinctive aspect: the solid base of users who “get” what guest posting should be all about, and why it is a mutually advantageous deal – when done right.
This is not a place where you can automate your link building, or look for sleazy ways to trick Google. It is a place where you can effortlessly arrange high quality partnerships with discerning webmasters and content creators.
MBG is an amazing avenue for all those who know the value of a good link, as well as the supremacy of good content. It’s a place where webmasters whose focus is creating quality websites will feel right at home.
