Link Building with Guest Posts
Before you agree to write a guest post that you plan to use for link building, make sure you ask the site owner if it is ok to incorporate off site links into your post. As you write your post, keep in mind your keywords and phrases for SEO purposes. Use your keywords and phrases to hyperlink to relevant content on your own sites. This will increase the blog's traffic with your properly optimized content, which in return, will will increase your site traffic because the blog readers are more likely to click on the links included in your post. These links will, of course, link back to your own personal websites and web content. As an added bonus, if you create a great post, the readers of blog are likely to share the blog post URL with others, furthering increasing the link building.
