I am not talking about a blog network type of site, even if it's relevant but I'm talking about a true legit site that invites guest posts.

It would include the writing of a serious on topic guest post, not some cheap $5 article by a non native US speaker, no I am talking about a good article and a guaranteed approval by 1 or more sites. Obvious this takes time and money.

How much would you be prepared to pay for such thing?

The reason I ask? I would like to offer this as a service in the near future but I'm afraid most people will find it to expensive to outsource but i might be plain wrong about that so would love to hear some numbers.

This is what is needed from our side:

- Writing an article that has a good chance to get approved
- Finding relevant enough sites that are open to guest posts
- Contacting (multiple) webmasters to offer it too
- Waiting for approval and communication

As you can see this is not some $5 or $10 thing to accomplish this.

Are you prepared to pay for this and if so how much?

    To tell you the truth I wouldn't try to sell that kind of services here on warrior forum, the reason is that most people here are used to cheap massive link building tactics and they would probably pay 5-10$ they just don't understant the real value of guest posting, on the other hand I have seen many seo agencies ask 100-300$ for a single guest post, so the money are to middle and big companies who are willing to pay thousands of dollars for SEO and certainly not on warrior forum where most people want everything for free...

    I pay $45 for someone to write a high quality 600-800 word article and find a relevant (PR3 or more) blog/site that'll accept it. Must be in the same niche as my site (so for example any health blog if my site is about sleep disorders). The site must not be part of any blog network or publishing network that accepts guest posts full time.

    I'd be interested, but only if you can deliver high quality work for a similar/lower price.

    A little confused / guest posting is as it says as a guest / it is free but what your offering is a service that looks after the guest posting for your clients.

    In that you list a range of services / the writing of the article yes that is a fair cop.

    The other bullet points really are not that hard as there are many guest blogging platfforms where you can submit the completed posts to where you then get to check of the points raised, yes a little bit of checking the boxes but not as much running around as you say.

    Really your offering to be a middle man for the guest blogging platforms / plus writing the article for a fee.

    Given it was a reasonable price and good quality there would probably be many out there that would take the offer up as it would be one less thing to do and just outsource it.

    Viewing a few guest posts if you could get the quality up there in the article then yes you would probably do well.

    As for pricing why could this not be ranged depending on article / size / site quality required ?

      Thanks for the responses, I do realize the warrior forum is not the best place for it but last night I discussed it with a client and in fact he was optimistic about it, and he found me through the WF as well, so it's definetly not so that there are only people who want to sit at the first ring for the lowest price, although the majority probably yes.

      @Bnetwork, that sounds like a fair price indeed, I would try to be able to offer it for around $30,- which I personally think is a fair price, but like you say, don't submit to just any "health" site that accepts guest posts all day long.

      @tryinhere, I don't agree with all of your points really, if you want to find a good site, and like bnetwork already said, not just any site that accept guestposts all day long then it takes time. Quality could be a determining factor in the price for sure yes.

        The opposite is true, in that there are some sites that reject 90 - 99 % of posted topics due to low quality and will hardly accept anything that comes through - and i can see you view and agree it is a double sided sword.

        Eyyy niko, I have a new site with no backlinks. I could order 10 guest posts from you, if you want it. Since the site have 0 backlinks, so we could tell how effective 10 guest post is. PM me if your doing it, and I'll give you more details.

            Okay, no problem. I think for $30, there's a great demand even here on WF... Cheers

    I was actually thinking about this same idea last night when I was trying to doze off, and I got stuck at the same point -- the price.

    It might depend on where you get the guest post approved. And, it would mean a lot of work on your part so you'd need to be paid appropriately. I think you'd have to start looking at a price starting around $250 upwards.

    That's just my uneducated guess though.

      $250 sounds just a little too much

      At the start it would probably require more of my time invested as with all things, afterwards it would get easier when building relationships with website owners so I would benefit from that and perhaps use that as a bonus for steady clients now and then.

      I think I'll get something going in a couple of weeks!

        There probably is a market but I don't think I'd pay for it.

        I already know my niche(s) so I don't need help finding blogs to submit guest posts to. Finding a good writer is the main thing. You need someone who actually knows the niche not just some random writer played to whip something out, even if it is good quality. Most big blogs have plenty to choose from, just being quality doesn't cut it.

        Plus, I wouldn't trust someone else to get in contact with these blogs for me, as it is my niche and I don't want some VA representing my brand.

        I've seen a lot of people offering these services so I guess it does work. But not something I'd want to pay for.

        Those are my thoughts anyway.

          I don't think you need a writer that already knows the niche, a good writer would do some research so that he can write interesting posts for any niche. I have no experience in this field so I believe you right away when you say they have plenty to chose from, it's a good thing to start testing different writers and see what approval rate I can come up with based on various PR2,3,4,5+ blogs.

          I am not just some VA btw

          I've seen nobody offering these services if I have to be real honest, yes large SEO firms that charge a lot of money but I haven't spotted it on forums yet. Could you link me to some?

    The problem is, a guest post will fizzle out as far as PR goes, once that page falls off the Index page of a typical blog.

    If the blog your posting the guest post on has a large amount of relevant traffic, that's a whole other thing.

    For $45, I would rather just pay the money to have a backlink pasted on an existing, older, already established internal page that gets indexed/cached on a regular basis.

    An established older backlink page is worth more $$ than a new backlink web page, as far as SEO goes.

      Very strong point indeed.

      Do you have experience in this, and how would you go about such thing? Just emailing webmasters in a certain niche after checking their Alexa ranking and offering them a one time payment?

      Must say that a guestpost even if it rolls of the homepage doesn't have to be much worse then a link at an existing page, ofcourse it depends on how active the blog is, when it gets 10 new posts a day yeah, but if it only gets 3-4 posts a month and the homepage has high PR then it should definetly pass on PR / authority to the blogpost.

      Any decent blog should have homepage-PR-1 on all inner pages (those that matter). Unless the homepage PR is 5 or 6, then it's usually homepage-PR-2 for inner pages (again, depends on structure). Looking through my own blogs, ALL inner pages are at the very least PR2/3, so PR doesn't just disappear.

      Agree with the rest.

        If links disappear (new page/link falling off higher PR page), then yes, PR does disappear.

        Remove all the links to your pages with any PR, & you'll see what I'm talking about.

        Really I don't care about the PR, at the same time, higher PR pages usually get re-indexed & re-cached a lot more often than a PR1 (example), at least from what I've seen.

        I want a backlink that Google keeps returning to the backlink page. I can get low value links for $5 that Google crawls 2 times a year all day long on fiverr (not interested). Just saying.

        Bottom line, If Google doesn't care enough to keep returning to the backlink page, I have no use for that same backlink page for SEO. The whole point of a backlink is for that link to be consistently found by Google bots on an active page in the same niche.

          Sure, that's why proper website structure is so important (and why churn and burn blog networks don't really work long-term).

      bnetwork described it nicely. Writers like myself charge higher than that of course; but what he is willing to pay is a pretty good range to get a quality guest post.

      This is very true. If you are looking to get paid more than $5 per post, the forum isn't the best place to find it. There are a few members on here who are willing to pay; but the vast majority are found either on another forum or their own website .

      Okay, I offer such package but my sites aren't there yet. That's why I offer a lot of other links in the monthly service as well.

      For $100/month for 4 links do you mean rented links or 4 different guestposts each month? If you're prepared to pay $25 per rented PR3 link then you could take a look at Textlinkbrokers.com, they offer it for that amount with max 10 outbound links on the homepage. Pretty expensive if you ask me.
