Explainer: Guest Blogging Database Metrics

Each of the websites listed on GuestBlogs.co are run through the excellent AHrefs software, to determine key metrics. The figures and fields I use in the database, are;

This is self explanatory, it is a broad category of topics that they cover, such as Business or Web Design.

Name

This is the website’s name.

Main URL

Clicking on this button opens the main homepage of the website.

Submit

Clicking on this button opens the guest post submission information for that website.

DR

This is ‘Domain rating’ which is a figure out of 100, determined by Ahrefs. Read more about DR.

This is where this website ranks out of the more than 10 million websites in the AHrefs database. The lower the number, the better.
