Guest Posting on Gears of Guns.com
Since the number of requests for guest post have gone up, we decided to create a page of easy to follow instructions instead of sending the same emails over and over again. Submission of your guest post does not guarantee publication. Because of our publishing schedule, your post may not appear for a month or two.
1. Write the post well: We are not here to edit your post. Do your best job first!
2. Link to Google+ profiles: Google Authorship is the best way to build your SEO. The only link we guarantee is a link of your name to your Google+ profile
3. Format: Please send your post in a Word doc or Google doc and attach relevant images to the email. Please do not email your submission in HTML format.
4. Keywords: Do not link to keywords unless they are editorial links and keep the density below 2%. Keyword formula is: # of Keywords ÷ # of Words = density. Rule of thumb is: 2 keywords for every 100 words. No link building please!
5. Unique and Useful Content: Your article must be original, not a variation of another article or any reprints. Our rule of thumb on content is “How can our readers benefit from this?”
6. We only post from fellow gun bloggers. Sorry to be picky, but we want to support our community and not someone who’s job is to guest posts. So only send us content if you are a blogger with your own blog.
7. Copyright laws: Make sure you do not violate any copyright laws
