OUR GUEST POSTING PLATFORM IS ONLY OPEN TO…

  • Popular and high quality websites in the survival, prepping, and homesteading niche that have BOTH:
    • unique, high quality, easy to read, and useful content.
    • AND a reasonably low Alexa ranking for our niche -AND/OR- are ranked within the top 50% on websites that track sites in our niche.
  • Well known survival, prepping, or homesteading experts, authors, bloggers, or writers.

If you’re unsure and think you might qualify, always feel free to email us! It never hurts to ask and we’re more than happy to take a look! We’re always happy to collaborate and help out like-minded sites and authors in our niche.


However, If your site is new, has low quality content, or was created just to do affiliate reviews with some weak content peppered in, please don’t waste both of our times. We will not subject our fans to that.

We will not respond to those at all.

We’re looking for good bloggers and writers with knowledge about our subjects, survival experts, experienced outdoorsmen, ex-military/special forces, and seasoned preppers who can provide 100% quality content that can pass Copyscape and Plagiarism Checker in these Survival, Prepping, and Homesteading niche topics:

NOTE: we do not accept any articles that feature or mention conspiracy, new age, political, religious, or racial subjects.

DoFollow Links

We give back to our authors. Not only do you get exposure and traffic, but you also receive a valuable dofollow backlink to your website.

Your articles can contain a backlink to your website, and they will be marked as rel=”dofollow”. We’re very careful with our links to preserve their value and only published authors and a tiny handful of certain approved websites get dofollow links from us.

NOTE: We do not offer ANY link back to review pages, product sales pages, landing pages, pages full of affiliate links, etc etc etc. Links MUST be to your OWN website.

Basic Guidelines

We’re looking for articles and posts that are fun and easy to read, engage the reader, entertain them, and provide useful information. Here are a few quick guidelines to consider:

Do’s

  • Provide specific content on one of the topics listed above
  • Stay on topic
  • Write a minimum of 500 words (1,000+ is much better, there’s no maximum)
  • Write original content that passes Copyscape & Plagiarism Checker
  • Write in grammatically correct English

Do Not’s

  • Cannot be published on any other website
  • Cannot be overly self promotional
  • Cannot contain any affiliate links, redirect links, or links to untrusted sites
  • Cannot be a product review
  • Cannot be written just to promote a product or website

NOTE: WE INSTANTLY REJECT ALL ARTICLES THAT CONSISTENTLY USE BAD GRAMMAR, THAT DO NOT READ LIKE NATIVE AMERICAN ENGLISH, OR THAT DO NOT HAVE A NATURAL READING “FLOW”.

BONUS: If you want to learn how to write ridiculously great content for any website, we created a resource called Writing Best Practices that can be applied to any website, not just our own.

It includes best practices, tools, and links to resources and further reading from the best experts on content writing.

The goal was to make anyone, first timer or a seasoned pro, a better writer for the web as a whole and not just a better guest poster for BeSurvival.

Images

Writers can provide suggested images for their articles, and we prefer it that way, but if you can’t find any images we can find them for you and might decide to use our own images.

Make sure that any images you provide are yours, or are royalty free, and/or you have the rights to use them on BeSurvival.com.

Using more than one image is highly encouraged because it increases social shares significantly, especially if you include a Pinterest specific image.

Image Sizes:
Top Article Header (687×387) – used as the slider image, thumbnail, and featured image for social sharing.

Pinterest specific image (ideally 735×1100+) – lets readers share a perfectly sized image for Pinterest, which greatly increases pin rates.

Article Spinners

Articles written using any low quality article spinner will be instantly rejected, and all articles must pass CopyScape and Plagiarism Checker.

We check every article, no exceptions.

NOTE: WE INSTANTLY REJECT ALL ARTICLES THAT CONSISTENTLY USE BAD GRAMMAR, THAT DO NOT READ LIKE NATIVE AMERICAN ENGLISH, OR THAT DO NOT HAVE A NATURAL READING “FLOW”.

Author Accounts & Bio Boxes

Some authors will be given an author account and bio box. The criteria we use to choose who gets one is complicated, but if you write high quality articles for us a few times you will most likely get one.

Any articles you wrote previously will also be credited to your author page.

You get an author page and an author bio box on all your posts with a link to your website, an avatar/picture, and a bio description.

How To Get Started

If you have read our guide, Writing Best Practices, and checked out a few articles that are already published, you will have a very good idea of exactly what we’re looking for.

Before you submit your first article please read all of the above, and then read the rest of this page to the end.

When you’re ready, email us at the address below and let us know you want to write for us. Don’t send an article yet, just let us know who you are, what website you’re with, and that you want to write for us. To prove that you actually read everything and aren’t just a bot, include the name of the first President of the United States in your email. If you don’t, we probably won’t respond. Email us first because our system is only open to a select few and not everyone is approved. Just sending an article, or bombarding us with a half dozen emails won’t work (and will probably get you black listed).

How To Get Started…

1.  Email us first because our system is only open to a select few. Just sending an article, or bombarding us with a half dozen emails won’t work.

2. When you’re an approved author and are ready to send articles, articles should be submitted as a .DOC file or similar, and you can zip the whole thing up with your images in a zip file if you want or just attach the images to the email. 

3. Articles that are just a big ol’ block of text with no paragraphs or formatting will not be accepted. Period. Make your articles as ready to publish as possible.

 


Send your article or questions to:

Articles or requests sent to any other email will not be noticed.
