Are you interested in posting on Landman Blog?

If you are a landman, attorney, or other industry professional you are welcome to submit a guest post here for inclusion in the blog.

What are we looking for?

Landman Blog is looking for educational, informative articles that can help landmen, landowners, or other industry professionals advance their depth of knowledge of the industry. We’re interested in anything from current events, to how a pumpjack works, to what a gauger does, to complex discussions on oil and gas law. If the knowledge you impart will help make landmen better at what they do, then we want it.

In essence, we are looking for posts that will advance a reader’s breadth of knowledge. If a post reads like marketing copy, we won’t be able to use it.

Articles should be at least 750 words long (more than 1,200 words would be best), and if applicable, sourced. If you send an uncopywrited, royalty free image, that suits the content of the post, we’ll love you even more.

We also require that all content submissions be unique and not now, or in the future, posted anywhere else on the internet.

How to Submit Your Guest Post.

Submit your guest posts via email to admin@landmanblog.com and we’ll be in touch as to whether we think we can use it or not on the website. If you’re not sure if your post idea will fit our site, send us an email with your idea and we’ll let you know what we think.

Please note: While we’d love to use everyone’s submissions we cannot guarantee to do so. If you’re unsure on whether a tip or story will be suitable for the site, and want to check, please feel free to contact us with the idea or even the first paragraph or two and we’ll let you know if we think we can use it.

Landman Blog reserves the right to edit for grammar, spelling and content.

What does Guest Posting Do For You?

Depending on the topic, each article posted on Landmanblog.com typically receives between 5,000 and 17,000 views, on the site and social media, in the first week of publication. They also continue to receive organic traffic after that, in perpetuity.

In addition, our audience is highly targeted, being comprised primarily of landmen, attorneys, companies seeking landmen and mineral owners. That’s a lot of eyeballs in a challenging marketing environment.

All guest posters are allowed a byline, with a link back to their own web property (as long as that property is industry related, and approved by Landmanblog.com).

Tips:

  1. We don’t use NOFOLLOW links in our guest post bylines.
  2. Bylines should be no longer than 1 to 2 sentences.
  3. Include a photo or business logo to go along with your byline to help build your brand. (we will re-size it to fit the post) Its not mandatory, but it will benefit you.
  4. The more specific the post the more likely people will read it. (ie., What is Pooling vs. Why You Need to Ratify an NPRI Owner When Pooling)
  5. Break long paragraphs up into smaller, digestible chunks. 2 to 3 sentences per paragraph, if possible.  Studies show that when people read content online, they are more likely to skim long paragraphs than when reading hardcopy text.
  6. Be engaged in the conversation when your post goes live on Facebook.  Being a part of the conversation will increase exposure to your brand and build more credibility and trust.
