Pls what is a paid post?

I recently got a message of someone offering to pay me $15 to post on my blog You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and the post will remain on my blog for life. But in a paid post,must the paid post stay in the first page?

A paid post is when you post on a forum or blog and and you were being paid for such posts.But,in your own case,this issue can't be referred as"paid post".The person who is offering you this has seen the benefit your site has got,so he/she is offering to pay you to write an article in the form of a post to tap some traffic from your site.And,wants to pay you in return.


Anyone that loves the post/article the person writes on your site and loves it,would like to visit the person's site to see other stuff the poster has got to offer.

Never heard of it. lets wait for the experienced online gurus to come along.
But paying you $15 for a post to be on your blog for life is not worth it if you ask me.
except it will be like your normal post which will go under as newer stories are published by you.

and did you also ask the person why such offer to post on your blog and leave if for life: what s/he stands to benefit from it? I mean you have to be careful before someone uses you blog for something that you innocently gave in to.
People are desperate and would use any means to get traffic that are meant for your blog to their blogs.

Just my candid advice.

the person said he/she would write the post then put a link at the end of the post. It seems the person wants a backlink from me. the individual sends the post to me then I publish for the 15 dollars. Is it worth it??

It's worth it.Reason why is because it's sort of guest blogging.Google really likes things like this cause you are linking to another site and your readers too stand to benefit from the post.It's like a creating a link chain.

I need you to ask yourself this question:Why are you in online business,is it not to make money?In as much as the person is not asking for your personal information to make such post and be sure it is related to your niche.If you're afraid,go to google and type in "guest blogging".A lot of internet marketers does this,so why should yours be an exception?



If you're confused about the whole thing,then maybe you should ignore it then.I can as well say I want to do a gust post on your blog without payment.But,I really do not know why the guy offerd to pay you.Maybe,he knows your alexa ranking.I suppose.

Hi Yungcheda,

My suggestion is, if the article he wants you to post is ok by you, then let him make payment, before you go ahead and post. Its a way for him to increase his google ranking - this is backlinking i believe.

Perhaps our mentors will want to elucidate further.

Hi,please;do not accept the cash.Tell him straight your niche are not same.He should get his link somewhere else.And if you accepts t6o post an article which is not in any way related to your niche,it will affect your own ranking,your visitors will ran away.And not only that,you'll lose money.


Only accept a guest post from someone from same niche.Period.

This is indeed a nice one Yungcheda, it goes a long way to tell you that your site is gaining attention. But i will advice you stick to Olajide's advice, accept only post that are related to your niche, dont be tempted by the money the guy is offering, if the post is not related to your niche, it's going to have long standing negative effect on your site.

As for your initial fears, this is not scam, it is called back-linking, it helps alot in google ranking.

Unfortunately, this is another one of those white men scams.

What they are really after is to get their link on your website without having to pay you. The truth is that under normal circumstances nobody would pay that much to get their link on an "unknown" fresh website with no page rank.

This is how the scam runs:

The scammer promises another client that they can provide a certain number of links for a certain amount then the scammer goes online to contact unsuspecting website owners with this $15 per post offer but the twist is that they will tell you that you must have the post on your website for some days or weeks before they will pay you. Once you have posted the link, they rush back to the original client showing them your site as one of the sites where they now have the client's links.

They do this for hundreds of sites and after the client pays them, they ignore you and when you wait and wait and they don't pay you, you may now decide to remove the post but by that time they've already achieved what they want to achieve after using your head to trick the other client.

The only way you can accept this offer is to tell him to pay you first or pay a deposit of maybe like $10 first before you post anything. No matter what they tell you, DO NOT accept to make the post until you have been paid in full or part and you have confirmed the payment.

Now that you have a contact form on your website, please be wary of unknown people contacting you with these types of offers. Most of them are not genuine. Another scam you should be aware of are people contacting you telling you that they can boost your SEO and give you links and stuff. Its just the other half of this same scam.
