Why become an Ask The Trainer guest author?

If you’re a health or fitness professional, becoming an guest writer is a fantastic way to share your knowledge with the world, increase your exposure on the Web, boost your website’s rankings, drive more traffic to your website, and boost your social media marketing efforts.

Our primary goal is to promote you and your website in exchange for sharing your in-depth knowledge with our community.  All our articles rank very well in search engines and we proudly run routine duplicate content checks to make sure your articles stay unique.

Because we are not a content farm (LiveStrong, EzineArticles, eHow, etc.) but a long running collaborative online health and fitness website, the benefits to you as a health or fitness professional are exponentially higher when your articles are published with us. Our approach is always quality over quantity so only experts in their field are published on AskTheTrainer.

Article directories, often referred to as content farms, for example contain hundreds of thousands of articles unrelated to health and fitness, the content quality on article directories is more often than not low quality, and your content is often duplicated all over the Web by spammers which can lead to duplicate content penalties, etc.  In addition to this, articles on directories do not rank so well in search results in the first place, as they once did prior to Google Panda and Penguin updates.

What qualifications are required to participate in the Ask The Trainer Author Program?
