9 Creative Ways To Find A Guest Post

We’ve all heard that guest posting is a proven market strategy for increasing traffic and improving our brand.

Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to find good opportunities.

Luckily I’ve compiled a list of 9 creative methods that you can use to find guest posting opportunities TODAY.

Option 1: Start With Blogs You Know

This one is obvious but should always be looked at as a first resort.

Who do you know in your niche that is up for a guest post?

The reason you should go here first is because if you have a connection with an individual it can expedite the entire process.

Honestly, getting a guest post published can sometimes take over a month!

If you know someone, and you can validate that their blog is of good quality, you can get it posted much quicker.

Plus, you already have a great idea of what topics their audience would like!

Option 2: Search for guest post in the website search bar

Alright, so we’ve exhausted our network.

Now let’s look for websites that have guest posts results from their search bar.

If we head over and search for “guest post” on Boost Blog Traffic, we can see in a matter of seconds that there are several guest posts featured.


As most blogs have a search bar, this make it’s very easy.

Option 3: Search for guest post guidelines

Alright so maybe it isn’t in the search, or there is no search bar.

What about in the navigation menu?

Generally these pages are labeled “Guest Post” or “Write For Us”

A quick scan of the home page on Boost Blog Traffic reveals this Write For Us page.

What’s great about this is that you not only know they accept guest posts BUT you also get to see their guidelines!

Option 4: Retrace The Steps Of Another Blogger

Now it’s time to put our detective hat on and do some sleuthing.

We’re going to try to see if we can find instances of a respected blogger guest posting.


Let’s pick a respected blogger in our niche. For example, in the blogging niche that might be Brian Dean.

Run a search for “guest post by Brian Dean”, I get the following:



Now I’ve seen all the places that Brian has guest posted.

These have been hand selected by the man himself, meaning not only do we have the green light on guest posting but we can be pretty certain the blogs are of top notch quality!

Option 5: Be On The Look Out For “As Seen On”

On my home page I feature a few logos of where I’ve been featured.

It’s a way of adding social proof.

In some instances these are clickable links so you can see exactly what they are referencing.


Again, we know the sites here are quality because people are showcasing on their websites. You don’t see next to a no name now do you?

Option 6: Look for targeted lists

Some bloggers are kind enough to compile large lists of websites that accept guest posts, like Nancy. Check hers out!

Option 7: Google Search Strings

Let’s get crazy with Google search strings, shall we?

Here’s a bunch of strings you can use, and remember to add your keyword such as internet marketing, blogging, food, etc.


  • Your Keyword “guest post”Your Keyword “write for us”Your Keyword “guest article”
  • Your Keyword “guest post opportunities”
  • Your Keyword “this is a guest post by”
  • Your Keyword “contributing writer”
  • Your Keyword “want to write for”
  • Your Keyword “submit blog post”
  • Your Keyword “contribute to our site”
  • Your Keyword “guest column”
  • Your Keyword “submit content”
  • Your Keyword “submit your content”
  • Your Keyword “submit post”
  • Your Keyword “This post was written by”
  • Your Keyword “guest post courtesy of ”
  • Your Keyword “guest posting guidelines”
  • Your Keyword “suggest a post”

Option 8: Twitter and G+


How come we’re giving Google all the love?

There are a lot of other content search engines out there, such as Twitter and G+

Here’s how it looks in Twitter, G+ is the same:


Option 9: Using NinjaOutreach To Find Quality Blogs

If all this seems like a lot of work, you need a tool to help.


Ninja Outreach scrapes each website to see if the influencer does giveaways, guest posts, sponsored posts or product reviews. If it finds anything it will link to it so that you can view it and determine if it is good quality and a good fit for your promotion.

Here’s a video of it in action:

  2. Hi Nancy,

    These are some great tips on finding guest blog. I also think you should always start with the blogs you know. There’s an advantage in choosing a blog you know. You are familiar with the audience it has and the type of content it publishes.

    Ninjaoutreach is another great tool for finding guest post on.
