[page_hero_gravatar]

NOTE: This is a mega list of free guest posting sites for different blogging niche. I update this list every month with new sites, better bookmark this page so that you don’t miss a single guest posting opportunity. 😎

It’s no more a secret that contributing guest posts to authoritative and relevant sites is a proven way to build personal brand, increase traffic, and boost search engine ranking.

But finding the right sites who can accept your guest post is actually a difficult task.

But before that If you are new to Guest blogging, here are some key benefits you will get from frequent guest posting on authority sites.

To help you out, today I am going to share more than 250+ guest blogging sites where you can submit your guest post without paying a single penny.

Free Guest Posting websites for all niche

01. Improves Your Authority in the Niche

In the modern era of Online marketing, Authority plays a significant role.

In today’s time, even with the top-notch content in your niche, you’ll struggle to convert your audience into loyal subscribers or paying customers if they don’t trust you and your brand.

By contributing to other authoritative blogs in your industry, you get the chance to prove your credibility as an information source.

It will make your target audience more confident in approaching you when they know that you are an expert and authority in your field.

In fact, most of the popular blogger and marketer often showcase websites where they have been featured as social proof to prove their authority and expertise.

02. Builds High-quality links for your site

For more than 90% of bloggers and marketers, the primary purpose of guest posting is building good links for their blog.

With good (High quality and relevant) backlinks, you can not only increase the domain authority of your site but also boost your overall website ranking in the search results.

In case if your new to the term backlinks – Google and other popular search engine consider backlinks as a vote of confidence.

That means the more links you will get from unique domains, the more search engine believes your content marketing efforts are useful and valuable.

Editor’s Note: Quality and relevancy of links are super important. So, never guest publish on any low quality or un relevant site just for the sake of getting links.

03. Improves your Writing

If you are a blog owner, having good content writing skill is super important. Guest blogging is an excellent way to refine your writing skill.

How?

See, as far as I have experienced when you write for a big authority site in your niche, you push yourself higher to deliver content that is both valuable and extremely well written.

To get your content published on those sites, you’ll be forced to pay attention to every little detail of content, including the research, structuring, headline, and grammar, thus improving your writing.

04. Gets High-Quality Traffic

In addition to obtaining links and SEO benefits, Guest posting can also help you drive high-quality referral traffic to your site.

Your basic strategy should be to frame content in such a way that content readers should click on your link and visit your site.

Here is an example from my last guest post:

Guest posting
This was one of the guest posts I published on Ryan’s blog about why someone should start a blog. I knew that many people may want to take action after reading this guide, so I strategically placed my “How to start a blog guide” link in the content, so that readers can easily click on that link.

Not just traffic, If you optimize your content in the right way, then the guest post can also help you with increasing email subscribers and sales.

05. Building your blogging network

Networking is as important today as it was decades ago. But building connections and network with the important people in your niche is a difficult task, especially if you are new to the blogging world.

This is where guest blogging can help you. It gives you a platform to interact with popular bloggers indirectly.

Usually, these bloggers need content and if you are able to deliver content that meets their criteria, they will happily publish it on their blog.

Further, if you constantly collaborate and provide them with guest posts, podcast interviews or YouTube tutorials, it can lead to the building of a healthy relationship between you and the blogger you are aspiring to become.

So, if you want to build connection in the industry but don’t know where to start, guest blogging can help you out with that.

With that being said, now it’s time to share the list of blogs that accept guest posts.

I have categorized the list of blogs that accept guest posts according to their content niche. So, that you don’t have to go through the complete list to find guest posting sites in your blogging niche. Just click on any of the categories and you’ll be directly sent to the relevant section.

How to find Killer Guest Posting sites?

Want to find more sites in your niche which accept guest posts?

Below I’ve shared some techniques that will help you find more and more new guest posting opportunities. In fact, these are the same techniques I have used to find all the guest posts sites mentioned in this blog post.

#1. Use Google Search Strings

Using search strings like “keyword” + “write for us” is one of the most popular ways to find new guest posting blogs in your niche.

Here is an example:

 Search string

Here are the 25 more search strings that you can use to look for sites which accept guest posts

  • Your Keyword “guest post”
  • Your Keyword “write for us”
  • Your Keyword “guest article”
  • Your Keyword “this is a guest post by”
  • Your Keyword “contributing writer”
  • Your Keyword “want to write for”
  • Your Keyword “submit blog post”
  • Your Keyword “contribute to our site”
  • Your Keyword “guest column”
  • Your Keyword “submit content”
  • Your Keyword “submit your content”
  • Your Keyword “submit post”
  • Your Keyword “This post was written by”
  • Your Keyword “guest post courtesy of ”
  • Your Keyword “guest posting guidelines”
  • Your Keyword “suggest a post”
  • Your Keyword “submit an article”
  • Your Keyword “contributor guidelines”
  • Your Keyword “contributing writer”
  • Your Keyword “submit news”
  • Your Keyword “become a guest blogger”
  • Your Keyword “guest blogger”

#2. Google Reverse Image Search

This is one of the unique technique which i learned from Brian dean’s Backlinko blog.

Here’s exactly what you need to do:

First of all, find someone in your niche who writes a lot of guest posts. (recommended to select a person with similar audience size and authority level)

For example, Anil Agarwal from Bloggers passion is one of the people I am following from a long time, he has appeared on many sites in blogging and marketing space.

Anil Agarwal blog

Second, grab the URL of the profile photo they use in their author bio:

Anil agrwal blogs

And finally, pop that link into Google reverse image search.

Google reverse image search

You will instantly be presented with almost every site he has ever posted on.

Google reverse image result

#2. Visit Alltop.com

Have you ever visited Alltop.com?

People often refer it as an internet library where you can get the lists of best blogs around the web by niche.

Alltop.com

Here’s how you can use it for Guest Posting purpose:

Head over to alltop.com, enter your niche related keyword and sit back as this glorious site washes over you with its list of the best sites in your niche.

Now create a spreadsheet of sites related to your niche, then use a tool like Hunter to find emails to contact those sites, and finally start pitching your guest post ideas.

It is important to note that not every blog listed on Alltop will be publicly open for guest post. But still, I will suggest reaching out to all relevant blogs and see if they accept your request.

#4. Reverse Engineer Your Competitor’s Backlinks – My Favorite technique

Spying on your competitor’s backlink profile is one of the easiest ways to find websites that accept guest posts in your niche.

See, Your competitors have already done the hard work! you just need to follow their step and find the right site.

With a good SEO tool like SEMrush, you can easily explore the backlinks your competitor has received. As well as identifying those links which are made through guest posting is also very easy.

Here’s how it practically works:

Open SEMrush tool > head over to backlink analysis tool appearing under domain analytics tab > enter your competitor’s website URL > Click enter.

For example, I entered Adam Enfroy’s website URL (One my favorite guy who is supremely talented in scaling link building with guest posting and bloggers outreach)

Backlinks analytics

On the next screen, SEMrush will show you some important metrics of your competitor’s site like Authority score, Referring domain, Total number of backlinks, monthly organic traffic of site, and number of the total keywords the site is ranking in SERP.

In our example, Adam has received more than 68k backlinks from more than 2k unique domains.

Check backlinks

Now as we want to check all the link source of this site, so just switch to backlinks tab.

Once you are in the backlink tab, apply Follow filter to see only Do-Follow backlinks of the site.

Adam

Here you can add one more filter to show only those links whose anchor contains author name, this will help you see only those links which are created via guest posting (As author name anchor is generally associated with guest post author bio)

And here you go…

Guest post by Adam

It does not take me even 5 minutes to find more than 10-15 high-quality Guest posting sites in my niche.

EDITOR’S NOTE:

The best part about this strategy is that you can find sites that aren’t openly advertising the fact that they accept guest posts.

(In other words, sites that does not have made any public page or form to submit guest posts).

And yes, SEMrush also has a free trial, through which you can use this amazing tool for free of cost.

💡 Does guest Posting still work in 2020?

In short “YES” guest posting does work in 2020. There are many bloggers and influencers successfully using it to gain links and increase their reach. But guest posting effectively in 2020 is very different than it was a few years ago

💡 Do guest bloggers get paid?

It depend on the blogs, but most guest bloggers are doing it for the networking experience and building high quality relevant links for their sites.

💡 Is guest blogging good for SEO?

Yes, Guest Blogging and SEO work well together within Google’s guidelines. Publishing good content on High Quality and Relevant sites is likely to benefits your existing search engine ranking position.

💡 How do I find guest posting opportunities?

Well, I don’t think after reading this post you have to worry about finding guest posting opportunities. As I have listed more than 250 websites that accept guest posts. Just go through the list and you will find many potential guest posting opportunities for yourself.

Final thoughts on free guest posting sites for 2020

So there you have it folks.

I hope this conclusive guide will help you grab some killer guest posting opportunities.

250+ website & blogs that accept guest posts – Here’s how to submit!

One last thing – I am aiming to make this guide a one-stop-shop for finding guest posting opportunities.
