Guest Post or Sponsored Post?
Sometimes freelance writers aren’t clear as to whether their post qualifies as a guest post or a sponsored post. If you are a blogger or freelance writer seeking to expand your reach and are not receiving compensation in any way for sharing your post and the links within it then it likely qualifies as a Guest Post.
If you are receiving compensation for sharing the post, for example, your site primarily sells/reviews products or services, or you were paid to place links for SEO purposes, etc) then it is considered a sponsored post, therefore our advertising rates will apply.
Our complete Sponsored Post guidelines are available here.
