Guide To Guest Post Tracking
Guest post tracking refers to checking the backlink status of any and all guest posts that have been published. It can be time consuming to check each link manually, even when checking them on a monthly basis. You need to go through each guest post URLs and check the anchor text, links and “rel=dofollow” text. It is more or less an ongoing task for webmasters or SEO experts.

Old School Guest Post Tracking on Spreadsheet
Let’s take a look at how you can maintain your own spreadsheet for guest posts. You need certain mandatory fields in a spreadsheet, as follows:
- Date: The date when the guest post was published. By tracking this you can create a graph of monthly guest post frequency.
- Guest Post URL: The URL where your article has been published or your guest link has been inserted.
- Anchor: The actual hyperlink text.
- Linked To: Your domain or page URL.
- Sourced From: The origin of the guest post. It can be any backlink agency, marketplace or person.
- Contact Details: This field is for further communication method with source. It can be an email address or a link. Sometimes, your backlink may be removed or changed to “Nofollow.”
- Google Indexation: You will get guest post SEO value only if the post has been indexed on Google. So you always need to check indexation status.
- Status: Current status of your backlink (i.e. Live or Not Found).
- Cost: Total cost of backlink acquisition.
- Remarks: Any other important data to look consider or save.
Update the spreadsheet each time a new guest post is published or a link is inserted. To keep organized and ensure that you don’t miss anything, you should have a scheduled time to do this task, weekly or monthly.
This is very time consuming and tedious work. If you have 10-20 guest posts, it is possible to maintain a spreadsheet, but with hundreds of guest posts it may take hours to check all of them.
That’s where Link Majesty can help.
