We therefore need all our guest contributors to first accept our guidelines outlined below, before we can discuss a collaboration!

Please read through the points below very carefully as we expect you to understand our terms when making an enquiry. If you can accept these terms fully, then please submit your guest content with your confirmation of acceptance of our terms directly to and we will review it. If it meets all these guidelines, you will receive an approval confirmation and explanation of the publication procedure via email from us. If it does not meet our guidelines, we will inform you of how to improve your submission.

For link placements in guest content submissions, we make the following differentiations:

  1. Guest content with a general hyperlink leading to a website page or post that is purely informational and does not include promotions, sales or advertisements is considered a basic guest publication.
  2. Guest content with a general hyperlink leading to a website page or post that is promotional or advertorial, encouraging readers to make a purchase or subscribe, is considered a branded guest publication.
  3. Guest content with a hyperlink leading to an adult content sales website is considered a special branded guest publication.

  • For SEO advantages we recommend having a media release published with unique media and we can offer advice and optimisation support. You can also read this guide about SEO press releases to understand this format better and make the most of your submissions and publications.
  • All press release submissions are subject to editorial review as the content and media added must be relevant to our readers and we recommend not to link repeatedly to the same sources as this does not offer helpful content.
