We receive a constant stream of emails from WordPress product owners, asking us to cover the launch of their new plugin, theme or WordPress service. It is impossible for us to cover everything, so, we offer a sponsored post service for those of you who want to reach the tens of thousands of WordPress users who visit us every day, precisely because they are looking for WordPress-based solutions.
You can submit your own article, but it must be unique and well-written, at the level of a native English speaker. Badly written articles are bad for your product’s reputation, annoying for our readers and damaging to WP Mayor’s hard-earned reputation for high-quality content.
Finding a good writer can be difficult, even if you are living in a natively English-speaking country. For that reason, and because we were spending so much time rejecting or trying to fix badly-written articles, we decided to include writing as part of our Sponsored Posts service.
If you provide us with the images, an outline of the structure you would like and some guidance on the main points you would like the article to emphasize, one of our full-time, native English speaking, university-educated, professional editors will write a highly effective article, of up to 1,000 words, for you.
Once you give the article your final approval, it will be published on the front page of WP Mayor, promoted in our newsletter and on our social media accounts. Typically, our articles are then shared by many other people in the WordPress community.
Another advantage is that, very often, the words that our highly skilled and experienced writers come up with, to bring your product to life for our readers, can also become part of your own marketing arsenal. We are always proud when we see our clients making good use, elsewhere, of a clever phrase or analogy that our writers originally came up with.
To see how beneficial a guest post on a high-traffic site can be, this article describes how posting on popular, highly-ranked sites exposes a new audience to your message but, also, how the back-links to your site, and the resulting organic flow of that site’s readers to your site, is the best way to signal to Google that your site is also of high-quality.
You can view some examples of what sponsored posts look like:

- WP Media Folder – Organize Your WordPress Media Files
- Sagenda Is Not Just Another WordPress Plugin

Frequently Asked Questions
We allow only 2 “dofollow” links per article to your website. The rest of the links will be “nofollow” links.
No. We will publish your content only after we receive your order.
We usually try to publish sponsored articles as soon as possible, but it very much depends on our schedule. Normally we publish sponsored posts within 2.5 weeks from the moment of purchasing.
We don’t provide any statistic on that, as it very much depends on your product and on how interesting it is for our audience. Some articles may receive hundreds of views in one day, others barely collect a dozen in 1 month. On average, we get around 4,500 page views every day on WP Mayor.
No, we don’t publish sponsored articles with affiliate links. Not yours, not ours.
We reserve the right to place a small “Sponsored Article” banner above any sponsored post but we may, entirely at the duty editor’s discretion, omit it if we believe that the tone, subject matter and written quality of the post are sufficient that it could be considered to be at the same standard as native content. Our articles normally appear on the home page after publishing and, by the time goes by and we publish new posts, your article will move to the second page and therefore won’t be visible on the home page. We can delete sponsored posts after a few years if we decide that the content is outdated and not relevant anymore.
- Please upload your article through the submission form as we have to check its quality. Note: your content can be rejected if it won’t be up to our standards and therefore you will receive a refund.
- Please make sure to give us a Gravatar email, the full name and a bio of your article’s author as we will need those to create an account for you, so that you could upload your content. Important: be sure that your Gravatar account has a photo, as we don’t publish articles without authors’ photos. If your or your author’s Gravatar account lacks a photo, it won’t be displayed in WordPress either.
The first thing you should do is submitting your order through the form on the Sponsored Posts page. As soon as you submit and pay, you will receive an automated confirmation letter from us, acknowledging the receipt of your order. We will then contact you within the maximum of 48 hours and will create an account for you on WP Mayor, that will allow you to upload your article to the blog yourself.
No. We publish only reviews written by our writers. A Sponsored Post service means publishing only promotional articles.
For a Sponsored Post you have to prepare an article yourself and we will publish it. When purchasing a Product Analysis you only give us details of your product. We review it and publish the article on our blog.
