Traditional guest blogging campaigns start by finding websites on which they'd like to post. To build better links, I'd suggest turning that around, and focusing first on finding the right authors and influencers
...What I propose (and what I've been doing for some time now) is that we approach this from a different angle. Try starting with authors.Influential authors and bloggers have the ability to not only write great content, but they have access to channels that they can distribute the content through. Additionally, these authors will often have lots of existing relationships with big industry publications that can be taken advantage of, giving you a competitive advantage.
Considering this, it makes much more sense to be building relationships with authors instead of webmasters, especially when it comes to scaling high-quality link building....
