You may find it difficult to describe your area of interest in a few words. For instance, you may be interested in guest posting on blogs dealing with topics like health, diet, exercise and healthy aging. To get a higher number of relevant results, you can instruct Google to find any of these terms using ‘or’ between them.

You can widen you results using ‘~’ to include synonyms of a word. For instance, a search for “~diet” will include related words like dieting and weight loss.

Bloggers may invite guest posts with small variations like “Become writer” or “Become our writer”. Use of quotation mark to search for exact phrases will result in exclusion of relevant but slightly different phrases. You can include these in your search results using “*”. Search for “become * writer” will include phrases like “Become writer” and “Become our writer”
