Important Notice! Due to the recent surge in the number of spam registrations we are receiving, interested guest contributors are advised to >> send us an email << notifying us of their intentions even after confirming their registration. This is in addition to fulfilling the requirements listed below. Read more about our decision here!!!
What are the guidelines for approving articles?
The following guidelines will ensure that your articles will be published more quickly.
- Content should be unique, spell checked and make sense.
- Spinned articles will not be accepted.
- Article length should not be less than 350 words.
- Structure your posts into paragraphs with headings and subtitles (mostly use H2 and H3 tags).
- Affiliate or promotional links will not be accepted.
- Articles must be related to one of the blog categories one way or another.
Do you have any other guidelines to consider before submitting guest posts?
Yes, we do. The following applies to all our contributors:
- Please note that guest contributors are no longer entitled to a do-follow backlink to their Website/blog, Facebook and/or Twitter accounts on the Author bio/profile at the bottom of each article. In addition, all in-text links within your articles will not be followed except by discretion where a clear relationship has been built over time and we are convinced you are not guest blogging as a link building strategy in accordance with Google webmaster guidelines.
- All submitted articles should fall under at least one of the many categories we have on our site.
- As we have over 1,000 registered contributors on this blog, it can take up to 14 days for your article to appear on the site. However, regular contributors with 15 or more articles can expect their articles to be published within 7 days in spite of the queue.
- Interacting with readers by responding to comments is a MUST. This will help you gain more friends and make others recognise you as an authority blogger/contributor.
- Ensure that your article(s) haven’t been published anywhere else as this will hurt your SEO.
- Learn more about our policies on the About Us page.
How do I register to become a guest contributor?
Summary of guidelines: Guest contributors MUST use their full names i.e. real names or pen names must be that of a real person and not a business, product, etc. In-text links MUST be directly relevant to the content provided for example, an educational resource, otherwise it will be deleted. Please note that this policy is in place so as to discourage those that do not comply with the new Google rules from submitting articles.
Meanwhile, you can still get a direct backlink to your Website by including it in your author bio and responding to reader comments on your article(s) via the CommentLuv plugin.
Press Release Since we receive several enquiries about publishing press releases, we have decided to create a dedicated forum to deal with this matter. Therefore, if you have a press release to share, please visit our Discussion Forum to publish it. Note that you will still have to register and our Forum Rules & Guidelines apply.
Likewise, due to the volume of offers we receive to publish infographics, we now have a website that is dedicated to publishing infographics from all kinds of categories. For more information on submitting and publishing your infographics free of charge, please go to Timeline Infographics. You will find all the information you need in the About Us page. It is simple, easy and straightforward.
To add a profile picture to your author bio, please visit gravatar.com where you will need to create an account with the same email address you used in joining TechSling.com. Once you have done so, you can upload your photograph to your newly created gravatar account which will automatically appear on your TechSling profile.
To sum it up in one sentence…if you have something to say, we want to hear it!
