It's been talked about a lot on this forum if guest posting on local sites is actually useful for link building. It's much more difficult for local businesses and as an agency, I (and others) haven't found it to scale well.Starts with email, sometimes moves to phone. It's hard. Sometimes people are jerks and you have to get used to rejection. I find that my success rate is dependent entirely on my pitch, so I spend a lot of time refining that. And yes, I've secured link placements doing this.
This is for local websites, correct? For local linkbuilding? Or is this more non local sites? I'm surprised there are local websites savvy enough to monetize guest posts?It's tough because it's not truly template-able in a one-size-fits-all pattern. The latter success came because I identified some webmasters who monetize guest posts and will take anything quality. The former was cold outreach to people who are historically bad at technology, and I'm convinced they don't actually know they have a blog.
