PostJoint Review: Guest Posting Made MUCH Easier


PostJoint for guest blogging and content marketingIn a new twist to how guest blogging sites usually work – instead of businesses seeking bloggers to write for them – they submit quality content they would like to have published to PostJoint and bloggers bid for the right to publish that content.

NEW: Listen to this podcast where I explain how PostJoint works
for Andy Nathan’s eMarketing Experience.


PostJoint calls the businesses posting the content advertisers. Moderators manually review all guest posts to ensure quality and uniqueness. Guest posts must be well written, non-promotional, and can not be published anywhere else.

They can be typed directly into PostJoint or copied and pasted from WordPress or other blogs or applications. If you don’t want to write the content yourself, PostJoint provides a list of resources for hiring writers.


All blogs are pre-screened for quality and must meet PostJoint’s Blog Acceptance Policies. That page spells out what kinds of blogs they will NOT accept. This ensures that advertisers and bloggers alike don’t waste their time weeding out poor quality offers.


  1. Advertisers (guest bloggers) submit their guest post(s).
  2. Guest posts approved by PostJoint are shown only to the pre-approved bloggers in the target niche based on the categories and sub-categories chosen by the blogger.
  3. Bloggers browse through guest posts specific to their niche. When they find posts they would be interested in publishing based on a sample of the actual post, they submit an offer to publish. Options include checking a box that you will tweet the post and charging an optional fee which you specify in your bid.
  4. Advertisers (guest bloggers) receive up to five offers and choose the one they prefer. Offers may or may not include a tweet to promote it and a fee for publishing.
  5. The chosen blogger can then see the full post, and easily copy and paste it into their blog for publication.

If any questions come up, you can use the
built-in messaging system to clarify.


These specifics will answer many frequently asked questions about PostJoint:

  1. PostJoint is NOT a blog network.
  2. Lists of member blogs are NEVER published and you can not skim them.
  3. No one can scan the guest posts in the system – bloggers only see excerpts of the actual submitted posts related to their own niches.

The PostJoint site is easy to navigate and intuitive so it should be easy for almost anyone to use it without any how-to instructions needed. This could be just what guest bloggers and publishing bloggers have been needing to simplify and speed up the process.

I joined as a blogger and I recommend other bloggers, guest bloggers, advertisers and businesses join the FREE beta now and try it out.

Remember that this is a brand new system launched September 19, 2012 so give them a little time to get many guest posts submitted and bloggers on board. I expect them to grow quickly and the earlier you get on board the bigger advantage you have.

You can follow PostJoint on Twitter and like the
PostJoint Facebook page to stay updated.

  1. Few months back I came across some news that guest posts will not be acceptable, I am wondering if that is not the case now.
    Secondly , how much this can effect SEO.

    • Hello Andleeb,

      It is a very gray area. Although Google claimed that quality content on quality sites was ok, they randomly penalize content, blogs, and bloggers. There are three primary ways you can get penalized:

      • If someone claims you did something – even if you didn’t. See
      • If you trip an algorithm by having too many of the same types of links or not enough high quality links
      • If someone else trips an algorithm and gets penalized and you get penalized because of their penalty.

      As you can see, the only sure way to not be penalized is to not have a site. These penalties are largely outside your control and possible even if you never guest post or accept guest posts.

      Guest blogging is still the best way to reach a larger audience and is very much still being done. There will no doubt be more penalties and we will waste more time and money on recovering.

      The best thing to do is focus on reaching real people and being independent of Google. If you ever get penalized, decide whether to try for recovery or not. (Outbound link penalties are easier to recover from than inbound link penalties.)

    • Hi Jolice,

      Since I published this post I am up to $1676. For those who do not have excellent English (whether offshore or American born), I encourage you to partner with someone who does. Blogging well requires many skills, and you could offer to do other things (install and maintain WordPress, keep plugins updated, do backups, create images, install Favicons, do social sharing) in exchange for them correcting your English.

  18. Given time this postjoint may have a lot of potential connecting blogs and guest bloggers. It would seem to open up the market and give both sides options they heretofore did not have. Since it is relatively new it is going to need some time to show how well it can do. Will look into it further.

  19. california web design says:

    Nice post about Guest posting. Guest posting is useful for grabbing the attention of another website’s audience, which is very useful in increasing the brand awareness

  20. I think the best way for guest posting is submit your guest post yourself and wait till it is published. In case of too late contact to the blogger.

  21. Thanks for useful information! Will definitely test this PostJoint!

  22. I think PostJoint sucks it didn’t work for me 😀
    you can also get paid to publish guest posts
    thanks for sharing this post 😀

    • Hi Lalitha,

      Find other similar blogs to yours to collaborate with and share each other’s content. When you have posts that are related, link to the additional information found in the other people’s blogs about the same thing. That will help you to get PageRank and more traffic plus a lower Alexa number.

      For more tips on that, see Blogging Collaborations and Best Practices.
