Content submitted to Best Company should meet the following guidelines:
All submitted content must be original, meaning that it has not been and will not be published elsewhere.
Submitted articles must reflect the style and tone of bestcompany.com’s blog. Our readers respond to content that is authentic, engaging, and trustworthy. Please avoid language that is too academic or too casual. We aim to publish content that is professional, yet accessible to our readers.
Any data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article must be properly attributed through in-text citations. Please do not use footnotes. All sources must be credible and up to date.
Submitted content cannot be overly promotional or biased. The purpose of the article should be to inform, not to sell.
Guest authors must provide a short bio—no more than two or three sentences—to be published with the article. Authorship needs to be attributed to a person and not a company or organization. We do not publish author images with guest posts.
Because we want to ensure all of our contributing writers have expertise, authority, and trust in their field, we have the following additional requirements:
Guest authors may include one link to their blog or website in the body of the post, as well as one link in their author bio.
Guest authors are not required to submit images to accompany their post. However, guest authors who do choose to submit an image or images must claim the copyright for each image and grant Best Company written permission to use it. All images must be submitted as a .jpg file.
Submitted articles must be at least 800 words, though we prefer articles that are between 1,000 and 1,200 words or more.
Best Company reserves the right to edit guest blog content as we see fit for grammar, formatting, length, clarity, and style, as well as the right to update it in the future to ensure accuracy. Guest authors will be notified of any substantive changes made to their article(s).
Any links within the body of your content must be relevant to the subject matter, have descriptive anchor text, and direct to an informational resource that is helpful to readers, not a product or sales page; as per Google's Webmaster Guidelines. Best Company reserves the right to remove links if they do not meet the stated guidelines.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We will not participate in a link exchange — "You link to me, and I'll link to you" — nor can you purchase backlinks from us, period. We adhere to Google's policy as outlined here.
