Guest posting is an essential ingredient of off-page SEO(Search engine optimization). It allows writers to get backlinks from relevant sources which will not only increase their website’s authority but also helps to direct traffic referral on their site. It comes under networking strategy of SEO. Sometimes guest posting is also used to gain publicity and product branding to the potential audience.
It is a complete win-win situation for both parties. The website owner gets content for his/her site while you get a backlink from their site.
However, Guest posting is more advantageous and is not only limited to just building links. For example: Say, you just guest posted onto a popular blog having plenty of email and notification subscribers.
