Blog posts that teach our readers something new about the world of digital marketing with an emphasis on SEO and how it helps small businesses.
What We Won't Accept
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
The Different Post Types We Accept
Long Form: These posts give readers in-depth tactical takeaways that are supported by relevant, recent examples, original quotes, original graphics, and current data. While we don't like to put a word count on our posts, these tend to run at 2,000 words and above.
When readers finish this type of post, they should be able to immediately execute on the given topic and have very few questions left on how to do it.

List Posts: List posts are hugely popular. We love them because they’re fun and straight-forward to write, and they do well on social media. Our readers love them because they’re easy to scan and to take one or two great points from. And both bloggers and readers love the fact that list posts are fun to comment on and link to.
Examples of List Posts:
"11 THINGS YOUR COMPETITION CAN TEACH YOU ABOUT SEO"
"15 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR ECOMMERCE SEO RANKINGS"
TOFU (Top of the funnel): These posts are created with broad, top-of-the-funnel traffic in mind. They’re usually related to larger internet trends or business-related topics, and are lighter in nature. There are also very few tactical lessons that can be taken away from them.
