Guest Blogging For The High Tech Society


 Guest blogging is very popular and this has led to the rise of its own communities and industries built around building links from blogs in search of free content to blogs and websites in search of better Google ranking. Unfortunately, this all went downhill in late 2013/early 2014, when Google changed their outbound and inbound linking policy. Websites now have to be much more strict about what they link out, as well as considerably more strict about the content, quality, and informative nature of posts on the site. This puts blogs who want free content in a bit of a predicament. While it’s easy to say we don’t accept guest blogs, there are many people who are trying to build references, portfolio content, and experience. Some are also still trying to drive traffic back to their site.
For this reason, we do accept guest posts, with very strict guidelines. First, we ask that you be willing to commit to a minimum of three posts up front, before anything is published. Second, we ask that you choose relevant topics in science, technology, tech news, apps, DIY, etc.  A few great examples of topics include “How to Build Your Own Circuit Board”, and “A Review of Mass Attack”, but please don’t choose those titles. We publish topics on science, tech news, technology events and conventions, the latest tech gadgets, DIY, How-to’s, games, mobile phones, apps, etc. Any post that is intended to promote a product or service will be turned down and we do not include outbound links in guest posts. If this is your intent, please check our reviews and writeup page.
We also reserve the right to turn you down based on the quality of your work. For that reason, it is in your best interest to contact us with 3 to 6 proposed article titles and 2 to 4 samples of your work. We will get back to you within 14 days (usually much sooner) to let you know whether to go ahead and write for us or not. The major requirements are that your English must be very good, you must be able to write on technical subjects, you must be informative, and you must understand how to use a conjunction in a sentence.

Sponsored Posts

A sponsored post is like a guest post, focused on the topic of your choice and may or may not link out to the topic depending on the blog. However, it is written by one of our in-house writers, and is therefore, not free. The writer’s fee depends on the topic, research required, and the amount of work, but most topics range between $100 and $200 for general tech topics and products. However, the fee can be significantly higher if more work is involved, the topic is less compatible with our site, or we feel that the post benefits us less and you more. You can read more about this here.

How to Get a Sponsored Post

Contact us at [email protected], use ‘Sponsored Post’ in your subject heading, list your topic, an outbound link if absolutely necessary, and any specific post requirements. We reserve the right to deny requests based on subjects, links, and specific post requirements.

Should you need specific changes to the post, we reserve the right to deny those changes if they interfere with the veracity, insert promotional content, or otherwise lower the quality of the content on our website. We also reserve the right to charge $5 per edit following two requested updates to the article. Sponsored posts will be online within 7 business days of The High Tech Society receiving payment.

Why are our rates so high?
We receive several hundred requests per month, and fees not only go into paying our writers and our editors who take the time to sort through emails, but also to paying to keep the website online, paying for hosting, and constantly adding new content to our site.
