    Guest post has a lot of benefits, and i can say we have 3 or more benefit as you mentioned above, which is Back-link, traffic and exposure which we require most to keep our blog healthy but it is required to submit a post to related blogs if you want maximum benefit of guest posting.

    While guest posting may never bring loads of traffic as most of us thinks, it does bring few ones that may end up being regular readers of your blog and may gain you high rate of trust and followers in the long run

    I agree 100% on guest blogging. As long as I know the person and he or she has come to my blog several times, I love to have a guest on my blog. I usually do so when I'm on vacation, so that the guest can follow up to all my readers. Also it is a good thing because my guest will share it with their friends.

    I have been a guest too on people's blogs and met many wonderful people who have followed me back.

    Hi Adesanmi,

    I haven't tried guest posting myself yet, due to lack of time, but I know from other bloggers' experience of it that it can be very beneficial and a great way to make new connections. I do think you need to be selective about which blogs you guest-post on, though – ideally blogs with a higher rank than your own, and obviously those that get sufficient traffic to make your efforts worthwhile.

    Hi Sue,

    I will advise you give it a trial and you will be convinced. Guest blogging and leaving a comment in other blogs really helped this blog in the first month and I can attest to the fact that Guest bloggng is wonderful, and talking about time, you can re-schedule you time and try to publish a post atleast 2-3 guest post per month and it'll really help your blog.

    Hi Adesanmi,

    1. The good

    The content of the blog is interesting. The titles are well crafted and you managed to attract attention.
    The visual appearance of the whole blog is attractive. It is a nice blog, clean and easy to read.
    You update your blog often. So you are offering new content to your readers very fast.
    You probably comment a lot on other people's blogs.
    It is probably that you do some guest posting, too.

    I can feel that your desire to succeed and become rich and free is huge. It seems it burns your soul.
    You are kind of … like a flame and very emotional. The flames of passion.
    All things above are very, very good. Even more.

    You have managed to reach Alexa rank of 402906 (July 22th, 2013). In just about 6 weeks. Congratulations!

    2. The bad

    a. There is a very little number of comments on your blog. You even wrote an article about this "One reason why I will stop visiting your blog". You are kind of upset because people don't come to comment on your blog and explain us that you won't come and comment on other people blogs, if the respective blog owners do not reciprocate (meaning they don't come to your blog and comment, too).

    So the first problem is : little engagement.

    b. The speed of ascension is too high. At this rhythm you will be number 1 in 4-5 months.You are climbing the ladder too fast. Super-speed means danger.
    As far as I know, those who succeed too fast are not welcomed in the blogosphere. People look at them suspiciously. They suspect black hat techniques and a lot of other things. It doesn't matter you are clean. They won't believe.
    Next, Google will look at you with a lot of suspicion. One single mistake and you will get a Google penalty.

    As far as I know, the Western world doesn't like revolutions. They believe in what is called" organic growth". This means a natural growth. In nature, normal plants and animals don't grow too fast. Otherwise they die.
    There is natural rhythm of growth, in nature and in blogosphere. You are way higher than this natural rhythm.
    So suspicion is inevitable and penalties also.

    Some time ago I was browsing a site called I was browsing very, very fast, looking at a specific indicator inside each article. is Google's property. Google's software monitored my actions and after a an hour or so they blocked my access to the site and sent me a message:

    "You are browsing too fast. You are not a human being. You are an automated program. This is contrary to our policies. We have blocked your access to the site. If you want your access back, send us an email and explain why were you moving so fast. Then, we may give your access back."

    There was no way to regain my access so I was forced to write them an email and explain them what I was doing. They gave my access back. This was a kind of shock to me.

    I understood that in this world :

    - if you go too slow, you won't succeed BUT

    - if you go too fast, you won't succeed either.

    SLOW is BAD. However, VERY FAST is BAD, too.

    What to do then? You need to find the natural growing rhythm that WILL NOT RAISE SUSPICION.

    Otherwise people will avoid you. You will remain alone.

    3. The ugly

    I can feel your desire and your pain. You write like crazy, comment like crazy, guest post like crazy. However, there is little engagement, little comments and so on. Why?

    Well, for example, you came to my site and made three comments. Two of them were kind of: "very informative" and "so much impressed with this information" . The last one is just a little better. You say you are commenting on blogs with commentluv and intense debate.

    The principle of commenting is the following: You must add value to the post.
    It doesn't work with "very informative" and "so much impressed with the information". In fact, you said nothing. You didn't add value to the post. You were just in a hurry to leave your comments.

    Even worse: you put the same backlink to all the three posts. This behavior is unacceptable. I cannot approve your comments. They look too much like SPAM.
    This is is what happens when you are moving too fast.


    If you want to succeed and be rich and free and happy, you must change your behavior. Find the natural growth rhythm in the blogosphere.

    I hope this post will not offend you. I have taken the time and effort to write all the above because I care about people like you. You are a good man, generous and passionate. You deserve a better place in this world. But you must be careful . The online world is a jungle and it doesn't matter you are innocent.

    Have a nice day

    Hi Adesanmi,

    I believe that guest posting is important especially when you're new so that you can get out in front of as many people as you can and be noticed. I know that being brand new then a lot of people aren't interested in accepting you because they do want you to be able to bring some traffic to their site as well but I think the majority of the benefit goes to the guest finding new readers possibly.

    I've done a little guest posting myself but it's hard to find the time anymore. I only accept guest posts on my blog by invitation only. I decided to help my readers out more then someone I don't know. I'm going into two years doing it this way so it's working out really well.

    Thanks for the tips and enjoy your week.

    Hi Adriene,

    Yes you are right, in fact guest post to me was purposefully put in place because of new bloggers to show case in the community within a limited number of time if their writing skills are authentic and genuine.
