Even if sites are not willing to accept syndicated content, they may be happy to accept fresh content in the form of guest posts. But in this scenario, you don’t have to rewrite content from scratch either.
Use your existing article as a base and create standalone articles from it. You can then submit these “splintered” articles as guest posts.

For example, our guide to link building has five chapters.

Each of these chapters could be perfect guest posts on their own. You’ve already done the hard work beforehand, so “recreating” these articles as guest posts should be relatively straightforward.

12. Reach out to people who’ve mentioned something covered extensively in your article
If someone wrote an article that mentions your topic without going into detail, then your article might be a perfect fit as an additional resource they can point to.
How do you find these articles? Here’s how:
Go to Ahrefs’ Content Explorer
Search for your topic
For example, if we search for “mechanical keyboard,” you’ll see around 280,000 pages you can target.
Content Explorer search for "mechanical keyboard"
But that’s too many pages to look through, so let’s set a few more filters to narrow down the results:
Just like Batman and Robin, vendors team up with affiliate marketers for mutual gain, making it a win-win for many business owners.
Domain Rating score: 30–90
Website traffic: 500+
One page per domain – Checked
Exclude homepages – Checked
Exclude subdomains – Checked
Live & Broken – Only live
Filter explicit results – On
"Mechanical keyboard" search with filters applied
This reduces the number of pages to ~3,000 of the best ones. If this number is still too daunting for you, then you can always play around with the filters until you get a number you’re comfortable with.
Once you have a satisfactory list, go through each page and see if your article can add value as a resource. If the answer is yes, reach out to the writer or website owner and see if you can persuade them to link to your article.
