Guest Bloggers Wanted: How to Find the Best Sites to Guest Blog

“Guest bloggers wanted!”

“Write for us”

“Looking for contributors”

These are just a few ways some of the best sites indicate that they welcome guest posts from folks, just like you.

But how do you know that they’re looking?

You run a business that leaves your hands full and you don’t have the time to go on random Google searches for guest blogging sites, some of which sadly may not be what they are. I’ll come to that later.

But first, let’s get straight to the heart of the matter… how to find sites that want guest bloggers and how to find them fast.

On that note, this guide to finding the best places to guest blog without wasting a ton of time and energy is just what the chef ordered.

Oh, here’s a PSA: I’d shared this in my earlier post on why small businesses, like yours, need to guest post, but it bears repeating…

Guest blogging is *NOT* about putting out fluff-filled, filler content on shady sites to get spammy backlinks that can get your site penalized by Google.

Guest blogging is all about getting quality, hands-down-the-best content you’ve shared out there so you can build your brand, boost traffic and get out there.

So now that that’s out of the way, here are the top 3 proven ways to land incredible guest blogging opportunities that could well be, your best marketing opportunities too.

1. Google Them Up, Scotty!


Prerna you said I wouldn’t have to do random Google searches!

That’s right, my friend. I did.

The operative word being random. 😉

However, used smartly, like I’m about to show you in a minute, Google can be your new {guest} blogging buddy.

So, how do you Google right?

You use the right search strings or terms that you type into the Google search box.

Let’s say, you run a cloth diapers business and want to guest post on established sites.

Type in cloth diapers “ guest blog”. See what comes up. A list of sites that accept guest blogs by folks just like you.

You can do this with just about any niche using search terms like:

Your niche “guest blog”

Your niche “this is a guest post by”

Your niche “guest posting guidelines”

Your niche “guest bloggers wanted”

Your niche “submit an article”

Here’s another example for someone who has a yoga studio or offers yoga classes to new moms.

Someone’s already done the digging for you and put a nice little list for you to use, right away. Gotta love the Internets!

3. Social Sizzles with Guest Post Opportunities

None of my resource lists can be complete with a callout for social media.

Now as much as I love Facebook, it is Twitter that comes up trumps when I’m looking for places to guest post on.

Search for #contributors and see what comes up! A list of sites that accept contributors aka guest posts.

Want to niche down, like we did with Google? Sure.

Say, you sell kids toys. Type in kids toys guest post or kids toys #guestpost and voila, ka-boom-bang!


Now it’s just a matter of reach out to these sites and finding out if you, too, can write for them. Pretty neat, right?
