It's free, but what you write has to be excellent. Instead of giving money to us, spend it making the content and accompanying graphics great.
If you want to contribute to the Reputation X site your content must have value to readers, be different from other content already out there, and be about one of these subjects:
Most guest posts are crap. Don't write about things that have been discussed to death. If the post isn't unique and truly helpful then please don't waste your time. To use Seth Godin's term, make it a "purple cow".
A Purple Cow is when someone stops and pays attention to because it's different from the other cows. Your content should be the same.
Do not write articles like:
The above examples are just lazy. If it looks like you just churned it out we probably won't accept it.
Your article can have up to two outbound links, but they need to make sense. For example, if you are writing about "6 New Schema Types to Help Your Business" and you link to a maternity website you'd better have a very good reason to do so. We edit out links that do not make sense or help the reader.
We check guest posts for inbound links 30-45 days after they are published. If a post hasn't earned any links we tend to take it down. So make sure your post is good enough to earn at least one decent link.
Reminder, there is no guarantee we will use your content. We reject content for a number of reasons. The most likely one is that it was not written by native English writers or experts in the area the blog post is about.
Here are examples of well-written articles:
