You must know that Google generally doesn’t like promotional guest posting. Now, this doesn’t mean I should not allow guest posts on CopyTheWEB. Instead, it means that I need to be pickier.

Blog post or content should contain a maximum of 2 different useful links. This is for reference purpose. I don’t have a minimum number of links that should be in a post, but I do have a maximum, especially for free guest blogging. People have written blog posts on almost all topics out there, so instead of regurgitating the same old information, you can link out to the sites that have already covered it for reference purposes. Product or service citation is not allowed. This also means, promotional terms not allowed in your content as free guest blogger. Instead of promoting, help my readers with relevant contents. Our readers want to see the solution to their problems. Don’t forget to use keywords tools to get relevant keywords related to your topic. This will drive crazy targeted traffic to your article.
ARTICLE COUNT : At least 1,500 word counts
For Sponsored or paid contents: There is maximum number of links, 5. My major concern is that, those links should refer to websites or sources that will benefit Copytheweb readers, and the links shouldn’t appear to be for advert purposes. Product or service citations are allowed. Use relevant keywords, especially long tail keywords related to your topic. There are hundreds of search engines online and the easiest way to attract them to your content is by writing original and rich contents with relevant keywords, especially long tail keywords. There are many free long tail keywords tools online you can use e.g. Instakeywords, Ubersearch and so on. Although, CopyTheWEB covers so many niches and topics online, you can as well message me on the niche you want to write about but not list below :
Technology, health, seo or digital marketing, lifestyle, blogging.
. I just want us to be on the same page. Spamming websites not allowed– Your content or bio should not be linked to spamming websites. This will result to the deletion of your published content(s), and possibly have your contributor’s account also deleted from CopyTheWEB.
Minimum content word counts: Google loves contents with a lot of useful and rich or relevant keywords. Also, we can’t ignore the power of contents with at least 1,200 words. This will do your article a lot of good, as Google and many other top search engines love to crawl and index such contents. More words, more website traffic.
The content(s) must be detailed and unique
I will never accept content that isn’t detailed or unique. What I mean by detailed is that the content needs to be at least 1,200 words with no fluff. You can always make a post meatier by adding details and steps. So, why not take an extra time to write a unique blog post that will benefit you and CopyTheWeb possibly forever?
Lastly, guest authors who contribute to dozens of blogs have a tendency to continually spin contents. They’ll take the same post topic and continually spin it so that they can guest post on more blogs. To combat this, I use service like Copyscape, which will point out any duplicate or similar articles. For this reason, I have the right to delete any published post I suspect to be a spined content.
