Guest Post

What are the guidelines for the content of the guest post?

Guest posts are very welcomed! We expect them to provide value to our readers. Here are 11 editorial guidelines on how the post content should be or contain:

  • Readable: Clear, concise, and technical writing get more readers!
  • Pertinent: Choose a category that best fits your article. The post content has to fit in with the purpose of our magazine store. Our website is about Cryptocurrency, Internet Business, and Digital Marketing!

  • Quality: Avoid writing spammy content! Focus on concept over keywords. Demonstrate authority and knowledge on a subject. Know when to stop writing!

  • Relevant: The post content should be of contemporary interest. Dead topics (e.g.: some obsolete SEO techniques) are not welcomed anymore!

  • Unique: Search engines like original content. Avoid duplicate or similar articles! Avoid spinning content! Avoid plagiarism!

  • Detailed: Your guest post should contain at least 1,200 words, if not 2,000, with no fluff. We do not set an upper limit to the number of words.

  • Images: Acceptable file types: JPG, PNG, JPEG, and GIF. Image size up to 150 Kb. Every article must have a featured image with 1024 x 680. Embedded images in the body of the post can be maximum 880 px wide. Any embedded content in the body (images, videos, gifs, tweets, Instagram…) is optional, but it can enhance the quality of your article. You must have full rights to the images you post. If it is not the case, add attribution under each image (e.g.: Image credit: Picjumbo.com or Image credit: Picjumbo Free Images

  • Post Title: Give every post a unique title. Put important keywords first. Google typically displays the first 50–60 characters of a title tag. If you keep your titles under 60 characters, you can expect about 90% of your titles to display properly on search engines. There is no exact character limit because characters can vary in width and Google’s display titles max out (currently) at 600 pixels. 

  • Post Excerpt: Usually, given its purpose, a couple of sentences is fine. Here, an excerpt must contain between 165 to 168 words. HTML tags, links, email addresses, author names are not allowed in the title and post excerpt. Do not repeat the article title in the post excerpt.

  • Outgoing Links: The body of the post should contain a minimum of 4 links with anchor text (there is no upper limit). The link and the anchor text must be both related to the content of your guest post. No use generic link text. The words contained in the anchor text may affect the ranking that your webpage in our site will receive by search engines. Do not use URL shortening services to mask your links. Do not ask visitors to visit your link (e.g.: click here, visit us, and check out). Avoid linking to spammy sites! No contact info (emails, phone, etc) are allowed in the body of the post. You can sign and also link back to your websites and/or authoritative sources (e.g.: Wikipedia and NYTimes), in order to help your article visibility.

  • Ads Free: The article must not contain any advertising. This means no press releases, ads, sales copy, self-promotion, and article spamming. No third-party URL redirects. No affiliate links are allowed in your article. No promotion on the image (e.g.: your website logo or company) will be accepted.
