So, how many of these do you a day? I get about 10 at the moment, I wouldn’t say it makes me mad but its annoying to see how everyone is doing it wrong. Firstly who actually wrote this. I mean my grammar and spelling is pretty poor but cmon if you are going to be sending out thousands of begging guest posting messages then at least spell check it for gods sake man.
Also, really you can tell they have not even looked at your website. It could be in the adult niche and they’d still send these messages. Its basically just a spray and prey approach and the problem is that it makes it much harder for genuine people to score good guest posting links now. Also I bet there is no follow up. People are busy, you should always follow up. Send about 5 emails asking to work with them if you have to. It will really help your success rate for scoring guest posts.
I partly blame places like https://www.BigGuestPosting.com for this rise in guest posting requests because they’ve made it too quick and easy to find people to hassle. If you look at the niches they have, its pretty absolute. So we’ll see what the future brings but as Google clamps down on PBN’s I can see these requests growing by x10!
