Content Syndication

Content syndication is one of the most controversial SEO strategies around. In fact, for every content marketer who swears that syndication is essential, you’ll find one who tells you that it’s more trouble than it’s worth.

Getting featured by giant news media like CNN or the New York Times as an expert source can promise great exposure, ranking boost, and increased traffic to your website. 

But how can you make sure that a Guardian or Forbes reporter chooses your response out of the hundreds of other pitches they receive daily? Why would these big players care to quote YOU as an expert, especially when you’re just starting out? 

That’s where HARO comes into the picture. 

Journalists and bloggers are also always looking for reliable sources of information to cite in their upcoming stories and articles. Their inboxes may be full of messages from aspiring experts, but that’s not what they’re looking for! 

HARO lets reporters post their queries on their platform so that you can respond to them as an expert source and establish your authority. This way, journalists don’t have to look high and low for credible sources, and you don’t have to spend resources on outreach to get quoted by renowned websites. A win-win, isn’t it! 

But not every response gets picked by HARO. You may have to send many pitches before you get a placement. So, many people wonder if HARO’s worth the effort, and is there anything they can do to make sure they’re selected. 

But first, here’s how you can get started with HARO.

Today, I’m going to run over some of the biggest SEO myths that are still out there and why you should stop believing them.
