Beginners Guest Posting FAQ's

Guest posting is a form of content marketing and one of the most common SEO techniques used by solo marketers, brands, and agencies today. A guest post is where someone will write a blog post to publish on a third-party website to promote the site or corporate brand they represent.

The benefits are many, but the most popular is the increase in your website’s position in Google for multiple keywords you want to rank for. You’ll not only get your brand exposed to a new audience on the third-party publisher’s site – but also gain prolonged increases in organic traffic from new visitors finding you in the search engines.

Why does guest posting work? Well, the high-quality, contextually relevant backlinks you get are a core ranking factor in search engine algorithms. To put it simply, if there’s a site above you for a keyword in Google, it probably has either better content and more links.

Guest blogging is, however, very resource-heavy and time-consuming if you don’t have the infrastructure to scale – which is where we come in to do all the hard work for you.

Blogger outreach is pretty much the same thing as guest posting. The key difference is that blogger outreach describes the act of finding opportunities on third-party websites to place content with contextual links. This process commonly includes:

  • Building a list of relevant bloggers and websites.
  • Finding the contact emails, social accounts, and other communication touchpoints.
  • Reaching out to bloggers via email / social / phone.
  • Negotiating article topics and placements.

Guest posting is generally the term used to describe the process as a whole, from prospecting, negotiating involved in blogger outreach – to the content creation and publishing on these third-party sites.

Blogger outreach services are designed to get you links and mentions to your website from other bloggers. We secure these mentions as editorial links from within the flow of an impartial, non-promotional blog post placement.

Article marketing was typically the phrase used to describe the old standard of getting contextual links from other sites. Generally, low-quality articles were created by unskilled outsources or software to get published on submission websites with zero approval or editorial guidelines.

Guest blogging is different as there is a higher level of editorial approval. Content is written by a professional writer and placed on a real website where the editor must first approve the content topic, quality, and formatting.

Both article marketing and guest posting are still being exploited today; therefore, taking a low-quality service carries similar risks regarding the longevity of the results.

That’s why at eCommercLinkBuilders, we only work with REAL websites that have REAL traffic. All our publishers are working hard to build their own brand, quality content and create an actual business – not a content farm.

We have banned article marketing sites, content farms, publicly sold guest posting opportunities and private blog networks on our ever-growing blacklist.

We also run through an impressive 35+ point quality assurance checklist before approving a site as a publisher – making us the most psycho in the industry at finding good websites!

Alongside editorial mentions in the form of links on major news sites, guest posting is still the most powerful way to increase your visibility in Google today.
Search engines look at mentions on relevant, established, and high authority websites as a solid signal to position you higher on the search results pages.

We make sure that the website you get published on will tick all these boxes. To be approved, they have to pass an extensive list of factors such as established traffic, great content, quality link profiles, and solid track history.

Pairing these sites’ metrics and authority with the high-quality content we provide is the perfect storm to deliver real ROI and results.

You’ll notice our links get graded into authority buckets with the scoring system of DR. So, what is DR? Well, DR stands for Domain Rating and is a propriety metric created by the industry-leading SEO tool Ahrefs.

The score from 0- 100 shows the strength of the publisher’s website by its own backlink profile. In simple terms, the higher this number, the stronger the link you’ll get.

If you’re new to this, it’s also worth pointing out that the scale of 0-100 is a logarithmic scale. This means that the higher the DR gets, the more links a website would need to go up to the following number.

For example, using made-up link volumes for the sake of explanation:

  • A DR 20 website might need 50 links of equal authority to go to DR 21.
  • A DR 50 website might need 500 links of equal authority to go to DR 51.

Therefore, the SEO impact is much more significant for landing guest posts on the larger DR websites. However, a natural link profile should always have a variety of authority, as shown in our recommended monthly link packages.

We go a long way to make sure our campaigns meet the high standards of search engines and our clients.

According to Google’s link scheme guidelines, all forms of link building are against their policy if they are overdone in mass – The exact statement from their terms is:

If you conduct large-scale guest posting campaigns with keyword-rich anchor texts, then it’s against Google’s guidelines.

Anyone saying different is lying to you, which is why we linked directly to the page to show you.

So what does this mean in terms of our service?

We ensure that the keyword-rich anchor text mentioned above is not overdone and matches the average ratio of the sites ranking in the top 10 of Google for a given keyword. We also make sure that the sites we reach out to are genuine, pass our 35+ point quality assurance check, and are not on our internal blacklist.

This way, all the guest posts we place have the least risk of being devalued, maximizing the ROI we provide. If you want to send us your current list of links, we can run it through our blacklist; you’ll see how good our quality assurance is!

Guest Post Content & Restrictions

At eCommerce Link Builders, we have a large team of native US and UK writers covering the wide variety of niches we cover.

  • All experienced content writers create editorial-level content.
  • All writers pass through in-house SEO training.
  • Article topics get mapped into keyword relevance clusters based on the term you want to rank for.
  • You get a minimum of 1,000 words of unique, niche-relevant content.
  • All content includes images, internal and external links and is well-formatted.
  • All content passes internal QA tests, grammar, and plagiarism checks.

These articles will be published by the site owner under their author bio, meaning they appear within the standard editorial calendar of the website.

The publisher site’s audience will read them as a genuine recommendation or citation of your brand or business.

You cannot pre-approve the articles before the placements get published – our expertly trained team does the approval for you as part of the 100% done-for-you service.

The main reason for eCommerce Link Builder’s managing approval is that we’re a white-label SEO service for agencies, resellers, and brands who need fixed delivery timescales.

We always deliver our reports in 21 days max, so resellers have the order ready for their client’s monthly reports every time. It keeps our fees low and lets us keep our service level promise to you.

You will get reports of the placements in your dashboard.

As mentioned above, we provide a lean service aimed at hitting delivery targets of under three weeks. For peace of mind, this is what you’re getting included in the price:

  • All experienced content writers create editorial-level content.
  • All writers pass through in-house SEO training.
  • Article topics get mapped into keyword relevance clusters based on the term you want to rank for.
  • You get a minimum of 1,000 words of unique, niche-relevant content.
  • All content includes images, internal and external links and is well-formatted.
  • All content passes internal QA tests, grammar, and plagiarism checks.

We’ll take the keyword topic you want to rank for and harvest all the informational sub-topics related to it. Pairing these keyword topic clusters with your primary keyword ensures we tick off certain search engine ranking factors and deliver better results and ROI for you.

The informational content will get written in an editorial style to inform the audience about a topic, and your brand will be organically recommended through a contextual link. It will not be an advertorial or sponsored post in any way; they will get ghostwritten for the blog author.

Simply topically relevant, well research content – organically placed.

Unfortunately, we don’t currently support these sensitive niches.

We cover a huge range of popular niches, so we can certainly cater to almost any site. If, for any reason, you think your site might not fit any publishers or is a tough niche, reach out to us and find out how we can help.

As our writers are all UK and US native writers, and the publishers we reach out to are mainly from the same locations, this might be an issue. The best thing to do is reach out to us, share your website and let us see if we can help before ordering.

Publisher & Link Quality FAQ's

Our in-house, professionally trained UK and US writers will create over 1,000 words of content relevant to the keyword and page you’re trying to rank.

Your links will be placed within a contextually relevant, informational article as a natural mention. This means that your link will appear as part of the natural flow of content, e.g. a citation or recommendation.

To maintain the editorial feel of the content, your link will be alongside other relevant internal links and not competitive external links. Your content gets published by one of their authors and appears in the site’s standard editorial categories.

In essence, it will not appear promotional and be similar to organic mentions your brand picks up over time.

We go further than all other providers in our efforts to secure sites that are real, have respectable organic traffic, and exist as a real niche relevant website – not a content farm.

We do this by first running all the publishers through our internal blacklist of sites that will provide no value to your desired results. This includes content farms, private blog networks, publicly sold guest post lists, sites with ‘write for us’ pages, and sites emailed in lists buy low-quality providers.

Once the blacklist gets checked, we then go through a heavy vetting process where the publisher site passes over 35+ quality checks. This includes technical SEO checks, indexing checks, site history checks, and making sure it doesn’t belong on our blacklist to start.

Real websites, real traffic, real results.

Yes, we’ll make sure that you never get a link from the same site twice, only getting fresh features on new publishers every time. We also check your link profile to ensure you haven’t already received a backlink from that site in the past.

This way, it’s 100% unique every time – which means better results for you or your client.

Never, we operate an ever-growing blacklist to exclude content farms, private blog networks, sites with ‘write for us’ pages, websites that are publicly sold on forums, marketplaces, and by cold email outreach.

We check every site we try to place content on – if it fails, it goes on the blacklist.

You only get real websites that have a legitimate purpose and run their own editorial calendar—real, contextually relevant editorial mentions.

In the rare case that your site is in a complex niche and we can’t find a relevant website to place an editorial feature on, we’ll get in touch and offer a refund.

We always pair client and publisher sites on a domain, category, page, and link-level relevance.

100%. This service is designed for resellers and agencies to outsource their link building to a partner that takes care of everything.

There are a million benefits, but in brief, you get:

  • In-house blacklist approval – no content farms, PBN’s or junk.
  • Real niche relevant websites with healthy traffic, links, and history.
  • Native, in-house, and professionally trained UK/US writers.
  • Over 1,000 words of relevant, editorial standard content.
  • 35+ point quality assurance checks.
  • Reporting dashboard that you can export in CSV.
  • Free keyword rank tracking to measure ROI.
  • Maximum of a 21-day turnaround from order to delivery.

100%, all our links get set to do-follow, and get checked as part of our in-house quality assurance checks – so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Never, all our content is ghostwritten for the authors on the website, and their bio will be the same one they use for the rest of their non-promotional content.

Your link will always be a contextual, relevant mention within the informational content – the same as you would expect to see in an editorial article.

None of the links you’ll get will lever be flagged as sponsored within the content or the HTML meta tags. Furthermore, your content will be published under a real author on their site and appear in a real category as standard editorial content.

This means no guest post labels too.

Our tag checks are all part of our quality assurance checklist. We make sure the link you get in your report never needs you to spend time checking – We include this in every link you get.

No. You don’t have to worry about private blog networks – we only have real publishers that operate as legitimate brands or blogs.

We run every website through a gauntlet of checks that will flag this before they are approved.

We also own and manage an industry-famous blacklist of known PBN’s, content farms, publically sold links, and low-quality websites.

Our content is all written by native UK and US writers, and the placements will be from English language UK / US blogs.

Order Process FAQ's

Whether you order individual guest posts or take out one of our discounted monthly link packages, the order process is the same (and very simple).

  1. Select the links you want to order – contact us for advice or custom orders.
  2. Review and place your order – secure payments via Stripe.
  3. We recommend letting us safely select anchor text using our internal tools, but you have the option to enter your own if you want.
  4. Every link you ordered will have forms with the URL and keyword you want to rank for.
  5. That’s it; we’ll do the rest – easy, right?

URL & Keyword Selection: After placing the order, you’ll get emailed your dashboard login. This happens before you enter the keywords and URLs – So if you’re unsure of what to pick, you can reach out to us for help, and the order will be held in your dashboard until you’re ready.

Reporting Dashboard: In less than 21 days, the placements will appear securely in your reporting dashboard. From there, you can manage your account, your package subscriptions and research out to your account manager for help or support.

In 8 weeks, you’ll get a ranking report to show you the campaign results, giving enough time for positive changes to get reflected in the rankings.

Unfortunately, not. Google wants webmasters to label all guest posts as sponsored or make the links nofollow, which means the links provide little to no value.

Showing the placements in your private dashboard after the order gets fulfilled is the only way a service like this will keep delivering results – by protecting the integrity of its customers and publishers (who are all real site owners, not content farms).

After all, if you were publishing guest posts on your REAL website, you would want the same security.

Yes, when you place the order, you’ll be sent to a page with the list of domain rank (DR) you want us to reach out to. All you need to do is enter your URL and the anchor text you want and we’ll make sure it’s included in the content we create.

Most Popular: You can also let us select the anchor text and just add the keyword you want to rank for.

If you leave us in charge, our experts will do an in-depth analysis on the keyword you’re trying to rank for, plus the anchor text ratios on both your site and the top 10 SERP results.

We’d recommend letting us do it, it’s an entirely free service, and we’re experts in the field.

Our service is a 100% done-for-you link building campaign. The price includes:

  • Order review.
  • Blogger outreach.
  • Publisher website quality review.
  • Contextual keyword to informational content topic analysis.
  • Negotiating placements.
  • Anchor text selection.
  • 1,000 words of content creation.

You can just focus on what you do best while we remove the headache of creating a full-scale, tested, ROI-driven campaign.

We accept all major credit cards through our payment provider, Stripe. Unfortunately, we don’t accept PayPal, Bitcoin, or any other solutions.

Yes, we’re happy to help. To be honest, one of the main sticking points is knowing how to get started and having a data-driven plan. Contact us for more information on:

  • Advice on getting started.
  • Develop custom strategies.
  • The number of links needed to rank a keyword.

Feel free to reach out!

The number of links needed to rank your site will depend significantly on several factors, mainly:

  • Keyword difficulty.
  • Your website’s age and authority.
  • Current link acquisition velocity.
  • Anchor text ratios.
  • Backlink profiles of your competitors ranking for that keyword.

If you’re not sure how to approach this, contact our team to help you get started. You don’t want to overspend on links. We can make a plan that fits with your budget to achieve your goals.

Likewise, links are a large piece of the puzzle to rank high in Google, but not everything. We can show you how to make sure you tick all the boxes.

Delivery & Results FAQ's

If you’re a reseller or an agency, we understand the pain when orders are not delivered in under a month. That’s why all our orders are delivered in less than 21 days from being confirmed – this is a very accurate timescale.

The only time we’ll EVER take longer than the timescale above is for large one-off custom orders. Typically this is for clients that suddenly order 100’s of guest posts or massive black Friday orders, which can take between 28-42 days max.

Even in this scenario, the links are added to your dashboard as they are placed so you’ll always have the majority of the order to report on if needed.

Typically the ranking improvements will start to improve in the first 1-2 months. Following the 8 week period since the links are published, we’ll email a ranking report to show you the impact of the links you requested.

Going forward, the keyword ranking positions and traffic improvements will continue to grow, seeing increases over the next few months.

If you want to know to learn more about the number of links you need to rank a keyword, feel free to reach out to us. We can build a custom monthly plan to reach the number of links needed for that keyword while sticking to a manageable budget.

Our links should remain live for the lifetime of the site.

We do offer one year a peace-of-mind guarantee, so If your link gets removed for whatever reason, we’ll reach out to the publisher to fix it or replace it within that timescale.

Guest posts should be permanent, but we will provide replacements for up to 1 year if your link goes down.

We can never guarantee that a link will get you to page one. Even though links are a huge part of the algorithm, there are a number of factors outside of links that contribute to ranking on the first page – like content quality, technical SEO and optimization.

That being said, if you’re unsure of how many links you’ll need, reach out to our dedicated account support team, and we can help you by analyzing:

  • Keyword difficulty.
  • Your website’s age and authority.
  • Current link acquisition velocity.
  • Anchor text ratios.
  • Backlink profiles of your competitors ranking for that keyword.

Knowing this, we can make sure your link profile matches what is needed to rank on page one, and you can focus on fixing your content and any technical issues.

Custom & Bulk Orders FAQ's

Yes. You can get a discount on the site in two ways:

  1. Discounts are automatically applied as you scale your order of individual guest posts here – you’ll see the ‘Average Price’ lower as you order more
  2. We have link packages available with a discount of 10-16% applied depending on the size.

If, for any reason, you want a unique or custom order that doesn’t fit with these two options, feel free to reach out to one of our sales team that can help you.

Contact us for custom orders here.

Yes. Order as many links as you like in one order. Once you make payment, you’ll go to an order details screen which has the following options:

  • Itemized list of the links you ordered by DR authority range.
  • The target URL.
  • Target anchor text or keyword you want to rank for.

From here, you can have a totally unique site or URL per link and build your own custom order for multiple clients.

If you’re subscribed to a monthly package for a discount, you can change the URLs and anchors each month; it renews right from your dashboard – we’ll do the rest!

Reach out to us for a custom order, or custom discounted monthly link package here.

Yes. We work with lots of agencies, and they all have different size campaigns.

Our service is 100% done-for-you, you’ll get the order delivered into your dashboard, and you can export all the data out as CSV to include in your monthly client reports. We’ll even send you a keyword rank report eight weeks after delivery so you can stay on top of the ROI.
