At Wordtracker we value all our authors and their work. In order to maintain the high quality of our content we have created a set of guidelines for contributing content to the Wordtracker blog.

Articles

We only accept high quality articles from people who are writing about their field of expertise. We will accept many different article types for the blog, ranging from thought pieces to step by step, how-to articles. The key is that the content must be unique, engaging and high quality.

We do not allow links within our articles to your clients' sites or anything off topic. All links within articles to off topic sites will be no followed. In short if you are hoping to write for us for the purposes of link building please look elsewhere, this type of article will be refused. Affiliate links are not to be included on the Wordtracker blog, as we prefer our content to be shareable and informative, rather than promotional.

We are happy to work with you to find the best type of article for our audience. Please do remember the key question we will ask about any article is: What does this add to the conversation? We want content that says something new.

Authorship

All authors will have an author bio which appears on every article as well as an author page all of their own, just like this one.

You’re welcome to include links to your social media accounts or to your company or your employer's site. For example if you work for an agency please feel free to link to them or your profile page on their site.

Finally, we will also want a picture of you to put on your bio (250x250) and this will appear alongside all your articles. We will by default use your profile picture from Google plus, but if you would like us to use a different one we are more than happy to do so.

Community

We have an active community around Wordtracker and we like to make sure that we engage with our audience. We expect our contributors to do the same. This means that authors should keep an eye on comments on their articles and engage with and encourage discussion.

Get in touch

Writing for Wordtracker is a great way of raising your profile and getting yourself or your company some exposure. The best articles are added to our newsletter as well so the potential audience for your content is huge. We also promote articles via our social media channels - we want your fantastic content to do well and we will push it for you.

If you would like to write for us then please do get in touch. We want to hear from you! Please send us a short bio about yourself and some ideas for your article.
