Guest Post Guidelines
Do you want to write a guest post for our blog? Great! We will be happy to publish well written and in depth content on a subject that will benefit our readers, and that fits the theme of this website.
However, we do have some guidelines we must ask you to follow. We are quite picky about what we publish here. A badly written and poor piece of content will benefit neither us nor you.
So let's dive right into it. And remember, these rules or guidelines will make the post more valuable for both you and us!
Guest Post Submission Guidelines
Rule #1: Word count must be AT LEAST 1000 words, shorter texts will not be published.
Rule #2: The content must be unique. It cannot have been published anywhere else on the internet, including your own site or blog. We will use Copyscape.
Rule #3: The content must be valuable to the readers. This means that it must be detailed and coherent with the theme of this site. No fluff! Start with a catchy introduction to entice the reader to continue reading. Always use subheadings, and include bullet lists when appropriate for enhanced readability.
Rule #4: Once the post is published the rights to the content in the post are owned by Travel Gear Depot, we retain full copyright on all material published at the site.
Rule #5: The post must contain 4 or more links to authoritative, high quality and relevant sites. The links should benefit the readers.
