*** PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we are NOT adding any new contributors to Search Marketing Standard. Please check back in November to see if we are actively recruiting. Thanks! ***

Search Marketing Standard is looking for expert contributors who wish to write for us at least once per month. If you’re interested, please review these contributor guidelines:

Contributing to the Web (SearchMarketingStandard.com)

  1. We require that all articles submitted be unique and have not been published elsewhere.  If your article is selected and posted, you may syndicate the same article to other publishers once two weeks have passed from the post date on SearchMarketingStandard.com.
  2. Include your bio (no more than 40 words with only one hyperlink), as well as the email address associated with your avatar located at gravatar.com.
  3. Your article must offer our readers clear, “practical” instruction or striking insights.
  4. Send the article directly to the editor-in-chief in Word format – no PDF files, please. You may also submit an article for consideration via the contact form below. We offer no guarantee that submitted articles will be posted or published. Include relevant links in parentheses, next to the word/s to be linked. Do not embed links in a Word document.
  5. We do not publish press releases.
  6. Copyright is retained by the writer. Search Marketing Standard may, however, reprint your piece, with full attribution, in other Search Marketing Standard products and marketing materials.
  7. We do not pay for article submissions.

We hand-select contributors to the magazine based on their market expertise and ability to write well.  By writing for SearchMarketingStandard.com, you may be selected to contribute to the quarterly magazine.
