What is syndicated content?
Basically it is where a site republishes your work on to their site. It is not new content, but is something you have already written.
Why be syndicated?
There are several amazing reasons to have your post syndicated on another site! Syndication helps you reach a new audience. The IBA promotes your post on all our social media channels and you are also featured in our emails! We want to help expose you to new readers. Isn’t that goal for all bloggers? More readers equals more traffic 😉
Secondly, it gives you prestige as a writer. Once you are syndicated it is a great thing to add to your resume or about page. You work hard so get the recognition you deserve!
Thirdly, it just a great feeling to be seen on another website other than your own!
The IBA accepts syndicated content from members in the following niches:
- Arts / Entertainment
- Beauty / Fashion / Style
- Business / Money
- Crafts / Hobbies
- Education / Learning
- Green Living
- Health / Wellness
- Home / Family
- Technology / Blogging-Related
Blogging related content should be submitted to our original content department. If you have a post that was previously published contact them and they will discuss you rewriting your post as a new post.
What not to submit?
DO NOT submit product reviews. DO NOT submit sponsored posts. These will immediately be rejected, and there is no exception to these rules.
If you submit affiliate links, paid links, or ANY LINK THAT EARNS YOU MONEY though a click or purchase these will be removed. Please put a note in comment section that you agree to them being removed.
Please read the following guidelines CAREFULLY before you submit your content:
- Submission does not guarantee that your post will be published here. We will only contact you if we decide to publish your piece.
- We reserve the right to use images from your post. We may request a specific photo without any logos on it.
- Keywords (long or short tail) can appear in no more than 10% of the total word count.
- By submitting your content you are giving us permission to edit your content for our audience. Changes will be as few as possible.
- Submissions must be rated PG. This is a family-friendly website.
- If you submit in any other language than English we may need your help to translate it.
- We will rename your post for SEO.
- All syndicated posts will include a Canonical URL pointing to you as original source. This is to protect both of our SEO rankings.
- Bio/Headshot will be used from Member Directory. So please make sure it is current. If not please email email@example.com with requested changes.
- Any post longer than 750 words may be shortened and a link at end of post will direct readers back to your site for full post. This is a great way to increase traffic to you.
We will only accept well-written and high quality content. Give us your BEST!
