Why is guest posting important for your business?

Answer: Guest posts are a wonderful way to reach out to new audiences, build relationships with influencers outside of your niche, and enable customers who don’t know you yet to gain the knowledge necessary to feel confident purchasing your products.       

Guest blogging is often seen as a tactic for SEO because it provides links back (and up) your site. This does not translate into any meaningful increase in rankings beyond just ranking organically well for relevant key phrases – so guest blogging isn’t really about SEO. The primary goal of guest blogging is engaging in conversations on topics that aren’t already being discussed on sites like yours and then getting people to return again later. 

Who Can Submit An Article?

Answer: Listverse write for us prefer submissions from professional writers, experienced writers.

Listverse primarily attracts a large, worldwide audience with an interest in great content that is both entertaining and informative. We are actively looking for new contributors to writing content and share their insights and stories on our site as well. Given the nature of Listverse’s content, we are specifically looking for mind-bending or hilarious topics that would appeal to people’s sense of curiosity about the world around them!

What Kind Of Articles Do We Publish?

Answer: Listverse writes for us, but they are also our guest posts. Each article is sourced based on a list of unusual facts and practical advice about that particular topic. We have a number of different categories in this regard including—

-Humans making the best out of bad situations and  weird ways to prepare food  

-Brilliant inventors in history and science who we don’t recognize enough  

– Fascinatingly bizarre events from around the world like festivals, hangings, and bombings ˆ- often with some morbid humour thrown in for good measure!

– Superior animals who take what’s theirs by force or through superior cunning, intelligence or patience.

Who Are We Publishing For?

Answer: Our readers really want those “quick answer” articles that can answer their questions in one long paragraph, not give them a thousand words of relevant information. It seems like people are skittish about who they can trust online, and want to know the opinion of someone they’ve never seen before but who has some seriously good credentials.

There’s been a proliferation of websites that offer free answers to just about any question you might have! In return for giving visitors the article that answers their question, there is usually an exceptionally tiny paywall that requires visitors to register or purchase the article at a price gouged beyond reason. Because we’re publishing this as our own content, full-blown freelancers are out of luck.

What you should follow while ”write for us”?

Answer:  All the guidelines are needed to be followed:

1) The complete article should be a minimum of 1000 words.

2) The subject should not clash with Listverse’s main categories, such as myths and mysteries. You can however have a post about any scientific topic that doesn’t contradict the site.

3) You must use spellcheck and grammar checking software. Proofreading is at your own discretion

4) A photo or illustration is required for every article at the top of page one in the middle and one at the bottom (as long as they are related to content). Any other photos in your article must be used with proper attribution, either inline or in the caption text.
