Quality Guest Blogging Sites – The Pretty Big List for 2012

Bending The Web, by Jack Humphrey

Guest blogging is a killer web-bending tactic!

We’ll keep building on the list below, but if you’d like to have a site added to the list, please comment and let us know about a great site we’ve missed!

The top quality guest blogging sites on the list are established.  We aren’t interested, for the purposes of this list, in including brand new guest posting sites.  In many cases the links below go straight to the guest blogging applications or guidelines pages of the sites.  But don’t submit guest post applications or content without getting to know the sites on which you are interested in being published.

The good sites are good because they are pickier than the bad guest blogging sites.  Finally, we aren’t listing pagerank or Alexa stats for these sites because we’ve already vetted them for you.  If you want to get in front of an audience that would be perfect for your content, anything on this list is an excellent candidate for your consideration.

Although they each have different guidelines for applying and writing for them, no site on the list below is interested in low-quality content created for the links alone.  It would be a colossal waste of time to try and “sneak” past the editors of any of these sites with a poor-quality article.

  1. Thanks Jack for including my site, MT Herald. I'm finding it tough these days tackling spun content while accepting guest posts. They pass all tests including Copyscape. It has become a herculean task to separate wheat from the chaff. Guest bloggers are purely link eyed and are less bothered about the content they submit, their usefulness to the readers. Ultimately it is quality that matters.

    You have done a good job handpicking good sites.

  2. Thanks James, we will add that place to the above list too.
