Guest Posting for Fun and Profit: Websites That Pay You to Write

Guest posting will never die

Google values quality content. Doesn’t matter if it’s a guest post, regular column, or whatever. Quality counts, and one of the best ways to prove that your content is quality is to get that content into a quality, curated site. What’s more curated than a site who will pay you for your great content? Plus, you have the added bonus of putting that money back into the marketing budget. The part that sucks, of course, is finding these sites and actually getting in. That’s why I’ve built this list of twenty sites that you might not have thought of.

Google advanced searches can root out opportunities

Just look at the kind of cool stuff you can come up with:

What’s more curated than someone willing to pay?

Getting accepted into heavily curated content as an outsider is tough. Luckily, this is the internet, and if you can think of it, there’s a site somewhere about it. So remember: Instead of paying for placement, get PAID for placement! It doesn’t get more curated than having an article accepted and purchased by the publisher. This website list is a great starting point for finding publishing opportunities in a wide variety of topics. Do you have any go-to publishers that pay for content? Have you had any success?
