One of the reasons why people take up writing a guest post is because it is regarded as one of the best ways to successfully divert traffic to a business website. The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) field has undergone a sea change. Old strategies of submitting articles, incorporating keywords with maximum density and having enough number of backlinks are proving to be no longer sufficient to divert traffic to a parent website. These days, search engine optimizers need to please search engines and readers. One of the ways to hit two birds with one stone is through guest posting. Apart from this, guest posts offer other perks as well. A closer look at few of the most popular advantages of them has been taken.
Gain recognition in online space
Guest posting is regarded as a shortcut to gain online recognition. A guest post writer by writing and publishing just one quality blog post online can become famous overnight. Sharing your views, ideas, experiences and knowledge on a niche area through a guest post makes you famous and respected in the virtual world.
Increase traffic to your business website
When you write guest posts for blogs, you can obtain the necessary permission from the blog owner to leave the link of your business website on the blog post. By doing this, you can divert traffic from your guest post to your business website. This gives you an opportunity to bring traffic to your website from other sources.
Create a brand name for your business
Consumers identify your business as a brand. This makes it important for you to create a brand name for products and services your business deals with. Through guest posts you can create the brand image required for your business.

When smartly used, guest posts can successfully fulfill the first aspect of the AIDA (Awareness, Interest, Desire and Action) strategy. Guest posts can be used to spread a lot of positive product awareness.
