In March this year I was honoured to be invited to submit an article as a guest blogger to Canada’s largest internet marketing company, Search Engine People. My first guest post was published on Search Engine People’s high-profile blog on April 5th 2011 and has received some great responses.
The article identifies common website performance problems and gives a checklist of potential causes and solutions.

Why would you write a guest post for someone else’s blog?
Having informative, well-written guest posts published on blogs of other websites or companies is a great way to:
- reach a different and potentially much larger audience;
- help you make a name for yourself or your business in a certain industry;
- get new followers on social media and expand your online networks;
- get some quality links to your website which is good for SEO;
- increase visits to your website, which may even result in new clients.
Personally, I don’t accept guest posts on this blog, because my blog is of a more personal nature. But if you have some great, unique ideas for blog posts and think they deserve a larger audience, try finding some niche blogs in relevant industries to see if they accept guest posts.
I hope to be able to submit some more guest posts to different blogs in the future, but as always, the main issue I have is finding the time to write them. I don’t update my own blog often enough as it is, due to never-ending work commitments and client deadlines. And I feel my own blog should still be my priority.
