Backlinks are vital for a website to retain its rank’s health in Google. Although, there are different type of backlinks i.e. product/article directory submission, profile links, videos, presentations, ebooks, forum and blog commenting etc., but the most important out of them is Guest Posting.
What is Guest Posting?
Guest posting is basically a type of link earning from other website. All the other backlinks can be made by a person himself but the guest posting can be only done with the consent of that blogger. It can be only done after proper outreach and relation building. Therefore, Google gives them more importance. If we ask some blogger to mention our product or service in one of our post, this is also a type of Guest Post. Today, I am talking about the same topic.
Imagine if we get a mention of our site or publish a guest post on searchenginejournal, practical ecommerce, searchengineland, seometrics etc. then how much traffic will flow towards our blog or how much we will be able to increase our domain/page authority, PR, Alexa and ranking.
How to Outreach the Top Blogs?
Search the top blogs of your niche, find their editors, search their email and social content, come into their radar and finally request them a guest post. If you follow all the steps smoothly, then it is impossible that any of the blogger denies you in this way. If you don’t want these steps or if you have less time, then the most simple way is to contact the blogs through their contact form or send them email by firstname.lastname@example.org.

Some of its unique features that are not available in any other plugin are:
- Attach products to stores
- Search store by products
- Search store by address
- Store product slider
- Ajax based filters
I can send over a free copy of plugin to you if you would like.
