Submit your blog posts
Ever just found yourself wondering, where can I post my blog link for free?
I mean it’s already difficult enough creating great content, and then there comes the really hard bit, promoting it. Well . . . I would love to pin your travel posts on The Travel Blogs interactive travel maps.
Join over 300 other bloggers and become a contributor to our free article submission site for travel bloggers as I post by post try and map out the world.
Share your travel blog posts
I want to be clear that this is one of the few blog submitting sites that is focussed on sharing great content and driving traffic to your blog, not stealing it. I will use the synopsis you supply below and the link will direct users to the post on your page.
There are no limits to what I am looking for and everywhere is possible.
How to submit blog posts – Read First
To submit a travel blog post to be pinned on our maps, use the map below to locate where you would like it pinned (the post must relate to a destination) and fill in the pop up:
Location Title – Your blog post title
Location Address – Town (this is optional)
Location Address Line 2 – Country (also optional)
Tooltip – This is a pop up on the pin under the title that adds a bit of personalisation. It is not required, but I would strongly advise Adding “From [your name] at [blog name]”
For example: From Matt at the Travel Blogs
Description – This is a brief synopsis of your post. When a visitor clicks on the map pin, they will see the pop up so you have a paragraph to entice them to click.
Be sure to also use the hyperlink tool to add a link to the post on your site.
If you have a youtube URL you can include it, if not please include a minimum of one photo to make your listing look pretty.
Once pinned to a map, the post will also be in my social media rotations and included in my weekly email campaigns (sign up here if you haven’t already).
Where possible I will try to tag you in any social media shares, so if you see it, a further share or engagement is always welcome?
The posts that you submit are shared on our interactive travel blog maps, making it easy for our visitors to find posts from great bloggers based on where they want to go.
Before we get to the map, you must read this part:
This is a blog posting site for travel bloggers to share their posts, not tour companies looking for a quick and easy backlink promoting themselves.
I do consider guest posts on a case by case basis. Please use the contact form below if you would be interested on having a guest post on The Travel Blogs.
Zoom into the location of where your post is about, double click, fill and submit 🙂
One last thing before submitting your blog post
It must be a link to a post and not the homepage of your blog.
The Travel Blogs is one of the top blog submitting sites where you can submit articles online for free, this is because quality matters and I don’t just want copy and paste.
The reason I ask for a synopsis is to introduce your post and convince a reader to click through to your blog, please don’t just copy and paste bits from it, also this would be very bad SEO juju.
No Sponsored or paid for posts. Posts that are about a sponsored trip or stay are OK, as long as it’s not glaringly obvious and comes over as genuine.
This is for a blog posting site for travel bloggers, so sorry, not travel agencies or companies looking for cheap backlinks.
The synopsis can be a bit about you but the aim is to have it in that particular post – a place to pin – not your entire blog.
What should you write in your synopsis
This is the introduction to your post so sell it and make the reader click the link. Think about where it is about, why you wrote it, what’s your favourite bit in it and be sure to finish with a great call to action that will make the reader want to continue to read and follow that link.
Please bear in mind these three points:
- 1. This is a blog submitting sites where you can submit articles online for free, however, submission doesn’t guarantee publication. See tips below for what I look for.
- 2. I reserve the right to alter the copy slightly to fit in with our style or to improve SEO.
- 3. The posts are about a destination and need to be pinned to a map, this means they must be destination specific. Posts about generic travel advice, packing lists or anything of that kind will most likely not be published.
What makes a great travel blog post (in my opinion)
I love useful posts that also tell a story. Lists are pretty straight forward to create, but to tell a story and transport someone to that destination through the power of your words is something different altogether. I want the stories to be entertaining and engaging, not just I did this then I did that. Why did you do it? What was it like? Would you do it again? Would you do it differently?
That said, I’m not completely against lists, so if it is well thought out and will offer value to readers then great, submit it.
Images. I love taking photos and seeing amazing photos.
As mentioned above, sponsored trips are OK as long as the post comes over as genuine and not just a good review for a free activity or stay, it can’t be sounding like an advert.
Finally blog design, they’ve got to look good too, I’m not going to link to anything that is crowded with adverts and affiliate links.
