Now may be the best time for guest posting on independent blogs in the history of the practice. That is because the appetite for interesting content is insatiable. People want to be informed, however, major media websites have become a nightmare for getting information. Here are a few of the practices that have become common in news sites that use to be quiet easy to visit:
Many websites are demanding you buy a subscription if you want access to the content
Have some favorite websites? Watch carefully what is happening to many of them. Recently, some of my favorite sites are popping up warnings such as, “YOU HAVE ONLY FIVE FREE VISITS LEFT ON THIS SITE, THIS MONTH!” I usually get these warnings within the first few days of the week, I’m not paying for the content and I go on to look for other sources. Do I come back at the beginning of the next month to check out these sites? No, virtually never, I have learned to find other sources.
Many websites are overwhelming readers with popups and disruptive ads that make it very difficult to enjoy
They hold the content hostage was these barriers until the reader gets a subscription. Like those with very limited access like above, Many are moving on to other sources. It is astonishing how little I miss those old sites.
They make you take surveys and extra activities to unlock the content
This is not as bad as the other tactics above, but it is still very irritating and gives one plenty of incentive to look for other sources that provide great content, without all the unnecessary distractions.
Because of these new developments, independent blogs are incredibly hot. People know they can find the same stories that the major sites have at independent sites, where being read is its main priority. Now is the time to put your resources into these type of sites, in providing content others want.
WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR IN THE SITES YOU WANT TO POST ON?
Focus on sites that have excellent reach and Domain Authority
Use resources like Moz.com to check out the value of a site and its reach.
Make sure you put your content on sites with significant reach and able to promote it on other sites.
When our digital network arranges for guest posting, it not only appears on the site you arrange, but is also promoted on our many media partners with links that led to our clients’ pages. Why just get on one page, when your content can be promoted through several?

One of our partner sites has been in existence since 2001, providing content on some of the most important issues in business, lifestyle, technology and more. It is nice to know that the content you post today has no intentions to go anywhere tomorrow.
Choose sites that have the kind of content that you can typically only find in the biggest names of journalism.
As mentioned before, our longest running site, PriceofBusiness.com has existed since 2001. It is the official site of one of the longest running business shows in the country that is syndicated coast to coast. As a result, it gets interviews with some of the biggest names in the news today. In a brilliant move, the Price of Business provides exclusive content based on interviews it has with their big name guests, to its partner sites. These interviews become exclusive on these sites, making them SEO powerhouses, because content remains king. Who are some of the big names that are among the exclusive content on each of these sites? Here are just a few:
