Only original content - Your guest post should not be a post you have already published on your blog or elsewhere. I have rejected submissions for this reason alone. Some of them would otherwise have been good fits. Think about it. A high quality site cares deeply about its reader experience. They pour many hours into creating the best content. Their goal is to stand out, to be the best in their niche. The last thing they want is rerun content from another site. Unless there is an explicit understanding between you and the blog owner about using content you've published elsewhere, it's respectful and wise to write something original. To me, it demonstrates care and concern for them and their readers, not just getting traffic for yourself.
Make sure your spelling is perfect - Again, it's a no-brainer, but it's worth a mention. A guest post submission should be your best work. It's pretty easy to tell when someone has “thrown together a little something” vs. someone who has really taken the time and care to produce something of high quality. Remember, great sites are very particular about the kind of content they share with their readers. Also, take extra care to use correct, grammar, spelling and punctuation. Edit, edit, edit. If you aren't particularly confident in your writing ability, have someone else proof your post for you. Site owners and Gatekeepers of Guest Posts don't have a lot of time. The less your guest post has to be edited and reformatted, the more likely it will be published.
