Thanks for your interest in guest blogging on GringosAbroad.
We want to provide a broad perspective about traveling and living abroad – and that’s where you come in. Check out some recent guest posts.
Here’s how we will promote your post:
- Back-link in the header/footer of each post
- Keyworded title and tags
- Promoted to our Twitter / Facebook communities. Depending on the nature and depth of the post, some will be promoted to our email list.
- And, of course, our regular readers will check out your post.
Contributed content must be unique. It cannot be copied from another site – or posted on another site after. Why do we require exclusivity? In a word: Google. When Google indexes the content, it will appear that one of us stole the content from the other. Either we both get penalized, one of us does, or the most recent post gets filtered from the search engines.
If a guest post on our site is republished somewhere else, we’ll remove it from our site. The Google penalty isn’t worth it.
Use a Teaser Post to Promote your Guest Post on GringosAbroad
While you can’t republish your guest post on your site, you can post a teaser post (with unique content) to promote your post on our site. Here is an example of how to do it: The Five Best Side Trips From Cuenca Ecuador – Featured Guest Post on @GoGoBot A teaser post helps your readers see where you’ve been published. It will raise your profile, and they will still get to read your post.
