Here at DWO we value high quality content to our readers. We do accept guest postings ONLY if the following conditions are met:
Authors must have a track record of writing great content
We get a few dozen inquires each week for guest post contributions, but sadly most of the post are of poor quality.
Here’s what we look for when an author offers DWO a guest post:
- Spam – We Google their name to make sure they aren’t pushing out spammy content throughout the web.
- Links – We make sure they aren’t linking out in their bio or within the content to spammy websites.
- Depth – We look to see how detailed their past content is. We usually look for authors who write content that is at least 1000 words if not 2000. You can’t put much advice in a 400 word blog post, so we avoid writers who are just trying to crank out content for links.
Watch outgoing links
Here’s a general guideline to follow:
- A bio should only contain 1 or 2 links – either to the authors website, Twitter handle, or blog.
- A blog post shouldn’t contain less than 4 links – We don’t have a max number of links that should be in a post, but we do have a minimum. People have written blog posts on almost every topic out there, so instead of regurgitating the same old information, link out to the sites that have already covered it.
The content must be detailed and unique
We would never accept content that isn’t detailed or unique. What we mean by detailed is that the content needs to be at least 1000 words without containing fluff. You can always make a post meatier by adding details and steps, so why not take an extra hour and write a better blog post?
We also won’t accept a blog post on a topic that has been beaten to death.
We are picky!
Even if a guest post is good, it doesn’t mean we will publish it. The content needs to be great!
Here is how we are picky:
- We won’t accept posts with spelling or grammar errors. If a post has this, it means the author didn’t spend too much time on it.
- The content has to fit in with our topic – namely women in all phases of divorce.
Authors need to help build and support our community
We want to continually build up our community, and we need our guest authors to contribute to it. Not just through blog content, but they also need to contribute through comments. Anytime someone comments on a post they write, they need to respond to the comment. It doesn’t matter if it is with a simple reply, but they need to acknowledge that someone has commented and respond to it.
Please make sure you understand these guidelines and if you think your content is a good match, please feel free to send your material to: media (at) divorcedwomenonline.com
