Guest Author Guidelines

Guest Author Guidelines

Lately many people have been sending us requests to guest post on our blog. We appreciate the thought and thank and invite all who would like to send us guest posts. But, before you email us your post please read the guidelines below so that we don’t end up wasting each other’s time and effort.

Topics

We love having guest posts focused on the following topics:

  • SEO
  • Social Media
  • News About The Search Industry
  • Web Design
  • Ecommerce Web Development
  • Entrepreneurship

Links

We offer links only in the author bio to the author’s Google+ and Twitter account. As we focus on promoting quality content and the author. In case there are relevant links in the post to high quality content then they may be retained but only if it is approved by the blog administrator.

Publishing

The post can be published on the WebPro blog or on any other partner blog after the due approval of the author. We need at least 1 week after the approval to publish the post as per our schedules.

Author Bio

Please send us a short bio description of the author along with the first post. For the author picture please send us the GR Avatar details . Gravatar (globally recognized avatar). Go to gravatar.com and sign up, then upload your avatar and assign it to your email address . Once that is done you will need the link to your gravatar, that isn’t easily accessible from the gravatar website, but you can work it out. The URL starts like this:
http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=
On the end of the url you need to put a MD5 hash on the end of it. Visit miracle salad to create your MD5 hash. On the miracle salad page simply enter the email you used to sign-up to Gravatar in the “string” text box and click “md5”. Copy the string it provides you and paste it onto the end of the url above, it should then look something like this:
http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=47021e9ecc06c94640e3d3919ca79277

Check this link in the browser if it shows the right image. (Send us this link for the author pic.)

Guest Author Page And Authorship Mark Up

After the author submits five guest posts every guest author gets an author page on the blog where the Author details and the posts contributed by the author will be listed along with the authorship markup.
