To make it easier for third-party companies to contribute to our blog, we've restructured our guest post guidelines as follows:
The guest article must be related to the topics discussed on the iplocation.net
website and must be of good quality. We cover IP addresses, networks, cybersecurity, privacy, web, internet marketing, and other technology niches.
The desired article length is about 1,000 to 2,000 words, however, we do not impose a hard limit on the length as long as the article is determined to have good value to our audiences.
The article must be detailed, unique, and not published elsewhere on the web.
We do not post articles that heavily "advertise" a specific brand, product, or service and hence do not indicate "sponsorship" in the article. We also do not post content that is local to a specific location. All guest post articles submitted are subject to approval, and we have the right to either reject or modify the original content to meet our high standards.
You must get approval on the topic you're writing about before sending us an article. Send us a few topic ideas, and we'll let you know if the topic fits our niche. We may already have articles on the topics you plan to write, so it is important to let us know ahead of time.
We allow up to 2 external outbound links to websites relating to topics we discuss on iplocation.net. Links cannot be identical and must land on distinct pages. Links to a spammy website, or sites determined to be harmful to our search engine ranking will not be allowed. We also DO NOT link to sites relating to Casinos, Essay, Writing, Sports betting, Gambling, CBD, Dating, or any other sites intrusive to our audiences. The outbound link will be contained within the body of the article. The outbound links are "nofollow" by default unless the landing website is an authority site. The link must be related to the article in order to be placed within the body, otherwise, the link will have to be placed in the Author's Bio. For do-follow links, we do require sponsorship.
The outbound links cannot be shortened URLs, naked URLs, vanity URLs, or affiliate links. We also do not allow money anchors such as text containing "buy", "hire", "cheap", and etc. Money-anchored, shortened, naked, vanity or affiliated links will not be honored even if the article is sponsored.
A link insertion into an existing article may not always be allowed as we generally do not insert a link to an article written by our guests. You need to provide us with the article URL and destination URL, and we'll let you know whether link insertion will be allowed. If allowed, sponsorship is needed to add a link to an existing article.
If you wish to add an Author's Bio, please provide a brief description of the author and a link to your website or social media profiles. Please also send us the author's profile photo to be added to the Bio.
The outbound link will stay indefinitely unless (1) we determine the link is harmful to our search ranking, (2) the landing website may have changed its original content, or (3) there is a conflict between the affiliate program we may opt-in in the future. In the event we decide to remove the link, we'll let the author know of such a decision.
Once we post the article on our website, we own the content and we have the right to edit or modify the content to suit our ongoing needs. As an author, you may link to the guest post however you desire but published content will be owned by us to allow us to modify it when it becomes outdated.
Please send us the desired Title and Meta Description tags along with a properly formatted article.
If you have any questions relating to our guest post policy, please inquire by submitting a Contact Us form or sending us an email at [email protected]. Thank you very much for your interest.
