Regarding paid Guest Post
Hi All,Either you are having your own website or you might be knowing people who is having his/her website for different purposes.I got an proposal from a freelancing company who will post one article per website (related to your theme only, so that it will be useful for that website too) and in return you will get money provided that article is posted in your website for one year.
You will get money after publishing the article and after freelancer's green signal on the post. It may take a week to get paid but you will be paid for sure. (Around 2k INR per article per website) So, let me know how much you wish to charge for an article per website? So that I can deal with the third party.
P.S.: If you know anyone who is having his/her website and ready for guest post. Please talk to them and mention their websites with the mail. We can contact them too.Waiting for your response asap.
Reason: url link
I am in and I have my own domain, the blog where I write fiction
You have three website. Which one you want to send for approval. All or any one specific?
Wow! That's new. I've known there are people willing to pay for getting guestbloggers. But being paid to publish posts... new to me.
Anyhow, I'm in. I could do with some extra cash :D
Sent website links of Ruchita, Rujuta, DvD and Captain's for the approval to the client.I will update you folks, once I get any response from them :D
Can you also let us all Terms and Conditions? Will be useful for all
terms and conditions are simple:
- You should publish it after reviewing the post, for one year
Cool. So does that mean I'll have authority to reject the article or edit it?
Yes, of course you are the final authority to publish it or reject it :)
But as other ppl said, they will add one or 2 links hardly as anchor text. that should not be edited. rest part of that post can be edited and sent for client's review.
if you both agrees then only terms start else its ok. nobody is going to loose anything. :D
Let me play the devils advocate here :) For the benefit of the community
1. Sanjeev,it would be great if you disclose your commmision also(How much you are getting paid per blog)
2.Why this can be BAD for your blog
- These companies will not post related blog post--Think about it,all they need is a leverage of your blog to increase their SEO rankings
- Their posts will be very similar to all other posts on other blogs ,hence google can punish you
- they will simply do keyword stuffing
- they will not allow you to mention that it is a paid post anywhere in your blog
- your regular readers will generally hate it
3)What can you do?
I have done this before and hence can give you some gyan
- I refused to let them post anything ,instead offered to write my own article
- I clearly mentioned,i will not do glowing reviews :They were ok because all they needed was a link
- How much was i paid? <5000 rs for 1 article for 1 year
So, is it this way? I thought I have to post an article myself. Are they going to write on my site?
Good One Madhur.
About Commission: Depends upon person to person. I am not charging middle man fee from my close frd circle. Now I can't do a favor without getting paid for my efforts. So I will charge around 500 INR from them. So, no burden to client and the website owner too.
Coming to your 2nd point:Before letting post to anyone's website, i will also review the article and If I find it's not worthy for website owner, i would reject myself. In this way spamming stuff, whatever u r saying will be less.
So all depends upon who is posting what. I will make sure that content is upto date and post will be unique for sure. so no punishment from Google. I am into e-commerce and website development domain from last 6 years. :)P.S. I have very popular technical website which is not for profit organization. We help poeple technically without expecting a single bucks.What we expect is, return the same if somebody needs your help.India is still behind in such things. So, like others I am also trying to curve engineer's destination in better way.
rest is of course site's owner wish :D
That makes things pretty clear, Thanks Madhur and Sanjeev.
Sanjeev, all my two websites can be included (3rd blog, mera panna is a compilation of my bro's poetry and I don't think should be used for this purpose) and articles can be published on them based on relevance. However, after things are clear to me, I don't think that my story blog will be appropriate, but at the end of the day, if articles are relevant to the theme, I don't mind putting it up there.
In my case, I usually charged $20 per article. However, now they have started hiking their rates, I ended up getting $100 for an article two days back ! The lowest I got was $7 .... on the whole $15-$20 should be fine.
However, I only post these ad-posts in travel tips and check them thoroughly for plagarism.
Awesome Purnendu. Now i am also planning to develop one website for monetary benefits part from non-profit web portal.Because to maintain our non-profit web portal and to gift some cash vouchers for different occassions, we need fund. So, I will try to earn some money from other website and will use it in our technical web portal :DThanks for sharing your ads details :D
Correct Sanjeev, in my case also, I plan to use this money to use as give-away rather than using it personally. I'm adding new feature to my fiction site for my readers where they would be able to write stories of their own. If I get a regular in-flow of money from such sources, I can reward them well
Nice to know that Captain. I feel happy when poeple are not just running after money but they wish to give it back in some form to the society from there they belong.
All the best to all such people.
Hey Sanjeev.. this sounds good... i'm in.. let me know if you have any requirements for my blog Dream Peddler.
My point was to bring out these issues because a lot of scams are going on.Indiblogger is a very close community and it would pain me to see anyone in th ecommunity getting into something without completly understanding it
Also correcting one thing, my payout was >5000 not < . So there is chance of increasing the payout. Try it :)
Yes it depends upon the quality of website, no of hits and how much wroth for that client. Later He may increase it if our deal goes successful :DI know ppl who gets more than that just for a single ad on his/her website. :DPlanning to make ad based website for my bread and butter :P
