Guest Blogging

guest blogging

SkipTheDrive’s is a free job-searching service for those seeking remote jobs. Job seekers come from all over the world to utilize our service. We also allow for employers to post jobs for a fee.

Successful article contributions to SkipTheDrive are interesting, comprehensive, and data-driven posts that inform our users. Remember, most of our readers are well-versed in remote-job searching and possibly the subject matter you want to write about. Give them good reason to read your article.

We greatly appreciate guest postings and realize that the opportunity is mutually beneficial. Please understand that we need to keep our reader’s interests first, and we need to make sure that whatever is posted on our site is “top notch.” It’s for this reason that we do not accept all guest posting requests.

Guest blog requirements

  • You must proofread your own articles prior to sending them in. We’re busy and don’t have time to make corrections. It’s expected that you take care of this. If there’s one or two typos we can deal with that, but anything more may result in the article being rejected.
  • You will need to create an account on SkipTheDrive.com if accepted
  • Basic experience with WordPress is required. You will be uploading your article directly to SkipTheDrive.
  • The article must be unique (not found elsewhere online), detailed and high-quality. Ask yourself “How will this be useful to the readers?”
  • The topic must be relevant to our niche (see our blog)
  • Do not include any pics. We will provide pics for articles.
  • Minimum 1,000 words with excellent grammar and spelling
  • The article may not be overly promotional. You will have an opportunity for a short bio with a link back to your site or social media profile.
  • Provide proper attribution of quotes, citations, and content referenced outside of the article
  • The article may not contain profanity, be offensive, or be overly critical of other organizations
  • Affiliate links are not permitted

Please note that we have full discretion as to whether or not requests will be accepted. If a request has been accepted but the article is poorly written or we deem it not acceptable for whatever reason(s), the article will not be accepted.

Topics we’re interested in

We’re interested in current trends and opportunities (i.e. companies hiring remotely, latest statistics, recent trends, etc.) that would interest job seekers.

Examples of topics would be:

  • 10 remote job opportunities with Amazon
  • Work-from-home sales jobs with Dell
  • Startup companies hiring remote workers

Again, keep job seekers in mind when coming up with topics.

What’s in it for you?

SkipTheDrive is a well-known search platform in the remote/telecommuting job space, and has been included in numerous publications, including Inc.com, Yahoo News and Fox Business. If your completed article meets our requirements and is accepted, you may include a short bio section at the end of the article with one link back to your social media profile, website, or blog.

Things to know if your article gets accepted

  • We reserve the right to update the article as we see fit. This includes adding links as well as removing outbound links to sites we deem as ‘spammy.’ We may also decide to add the rel=”nofollow” attribute to outbound links that are questionable. This protects our site’s search ranking, as outbound links to spammy sites can be detrimental.
  • We do not guarantee that the article will show up in search engines (i.e. Google, Bing)
  • There is no guarantee as to how long your article will be live on our site
  • You can include a short bio at the end of your article (up to 60 words), including one link back to your social media profile, website, or blog.
