If you would like to write for us/submit a guest post, the first thing you should do is read this page in full, then contact us through the form at the bottom.
We are very keen on creating long and professional working relationships with great authors/bloggers who can contribute on a regular basis.
We also cover a lot of self-help subjects including – dating, relationships, emotional matters, personal problems, self-improvement, self-development, entrepreneurship, personal finance, self-esteem, dieting and health.
However, you are not limited to writing about these subjects.
It’s pretty obvious from our name that we cover ‘how to’ topics. However, we are happy to consider any educational or informative articles.
We don’t specify a minimum number of words per post, but to get your point across in a detailed manner, you should aim to write about 1,000+ words. If you want, you can include photos, screenshots and video to support your post.
‘List’ posts are fine – they don’t need as many words as a standard post, but run your idea past us before you commit to working on the post.
All posts must be original and not published online anywhere else.
Easily scannable pages work best on the internet. People want to quickly find what they are looking for so they can get on with life.
Your best friends are:
- Attention grabbing headlines (try to avoid “how to..” – give your headines more oomph!)
- Short paragraphs
- Bullet points
- Bold text for emphasis (but not too much)
Categories, Tags and Meta Description
- You can add your post to a maximum of three categories
- You can add as many tags as you like. We recommend using two or three words tags as they are more descriptive. We will probably delete one word tags as they are too generic.
- Complete the meta description box for search engines
The internet is all about links, and yes, we allow links within the body of each post as long as they benefit the user experience. You can link to your own content, but please also link to other relevant pages on the internet.
More about links:
- Please include at least one link to a post or a category on EverydayHowTo.net
- We may add more links to your posts to improve the user experience
- We do not specify a maximum number of links, but please don’t include too many
- Please do not include regional identifiers in anchor text
- We may change link anchor text at any time
It would really help us out if you included at least one image with your guest post. Pixabay is a good source of free images.
Please don’t use images you find through a Google search. You’re probably infringing someone’s copyright.
Include up to three sentences and two links within the bio.
Submitting a Post
Please submit your article using a Word file or send a link to a Google doc.
Guest Post Lifespan
Your posts stay online for at least 9 months after which time we may delete them. We do this if the post has a high bounce rate, Google hasn’t indexed it or nobody reads it.
What can you do to stop this happening? Here are some ideas:
- Produce great evergreen content that is really useful
- Create content that people want to share
- Link to your content from your own sites
- Share it through your social media channels
- Rewrite it if it goes out of date
EverydayHowTo.net generates income through advertising and promoting affiliate products. Advertising appears on almost every page, but we don’t overly promote affiliate products. However, you should be aware that we may link to an affiliate product from the page containing your article.
