Hi, community! InAppStory is ready to develop a blog: https://inappstory.com/blog (#notaselfpromo) We are thinking about working with guest authors. But! Our DA is low 🌚 today. What advice do you have, hunters? 1) How to raise DA 2) How to connect and be attractive to guest authors

Backlink is what will help you DA, so it will take time to growth. You can be attractive to guest authors with a low DA: - Advertise our traffic more than your DA. You can get nice traffic from social media like Facebook, Instagram & Quora. This won't impact your DA but can help convincing guest post. - Focus on guest authors who also have low DA & follower base. Being a guest author is a proof of recognition. You can leverage this to convince raising talent.

@fabian_maume Where do you find such authors? Can you share a site or other information that could help find such authors.

@outagesio https://medium.com/ is perfect for that. I have a data mining script for this purpose. I might make it available on demand on https://www.tetriz.io/. Other option are: Linkedin hashtag feeds (I also have a script for that) https://hive.blog/ https://steemit.com/

@fabian_maume We recently changed our domain and are taking a massive hit from doing so. Backlinks are gone but including the bad ones, reputation is gone, DA etc. It was already quite the struggle to be found on the Internet, it became even harder after making what we hoped would be a positive change.

@fabian_maume I completely forgot about Medium, a great resource for new authors https://hive.blog/ doesn't work

@outagesio sorry for the radio silence. I guess that your topic is not relevant for the main content of our blog, unfortunately :(

@nataliekarakina I missed something, I thought it was. You were asking where to find authors and I asked if offering help and support based on our own service would constitute such an offer. I removed my question/s.

Looks like a great blog! Might contribute in the future if I come up with some idea on what can be relavant for your readers. Regarding how to raise DA its about getting good backlinks (just dont ever buy links unless you really know what you are doing). A good and easy way to get high-quality links are replying to HARO (help a reporter out).

@victorbjorklund you are welcome! Will check HARO (have started from Quora already), thank you for the idea!

@nataliekarakina and remember that on HARO you can reply to things outside your field. Of course the focus should be on any queries relating to your field but doesn't hurt to get a large newsite linking to your site when talking about something totally different (could for example be about entreprenurship etc in general)

@victorbjorklund yep, you're right! Think that we have much more topics than SaaS and Stories

This is something we are struggling with also but in a slightly different way. We've tried to work with a couple of authors but each time, they barely understand what we are offering so their posts as not relevant.

@outagesio, do you have the guidelines for guest authors?

@nataliekarakina Hi, mainly that the writing should be relevant to our offering which means the person would need to use the service, ask questions, have at least a general understanding of it. While we offer a somewhat 'technical' service, articles could be human interest related, how unreliable Internet can cause not only frustration and stress but loss of time, productivity, even someone's job if they cannot get their work done from remote. Add into the mix seniors that count on VoIP that could not call out in emergencies or their telehealth equipment being unable to update the doctors office, etc etc.
