Why Guest Blogging is still important!!!

Quote:
The SEO community is quite sentimental and often exaggerates many issues. You have experienced this situation many times in your SEO career, but enough is enough. Now stop blaming Google and start blaming yourself. “Abuse of anything can be dangerous”, but as SEOs, we often overlook the statement and mishandle every SEO technique. We already ignored the core value of guest blogging a while ago but still stretching it to limits. At-last Google’s spam protection teem make his mind to stop this sh** and give the clear statement. May be we can see another animal from the Google Zoo which eats all our low quality guest posts.

But then again I’ll still do guest blogging why let me explain.

As long as you write quality and unique articles for your guest blogging, you have nothing to worry. Google is only turning down those articles that do not make sense and those articles that created from spinning tools.

"To remain on a safe side use nofollow links in Guest posts."

Are the guest post spammers going to do this? I think not.

Well the author of this blog has made his point clear. If he can get more traffic through referral sites i.e. basically guest blogging in this case then nobody is concerned what Google thinks about it.

So I too would suggest if you get guest blogging links from sites from where you get satisfactory traffic then you should go for it regardless of Google against too much guest blogging. But if you dont get good traffic and do guest blogging just for the sake of creating backlinks to impress Google, then you are in trouble.

Anyone who has personal experience in doing guest posts for leading sites can tell how much targeted traffic a leading blog can shift towards your business. Referral traffic from guest posts often exceeds the search traffic of same day.
I totally agree with this fact.

Although I am not much into guest blogging, I have seen many of internet marketer friends benefit from this.

It is still important because it is offering quality contextual link.

I'm not sure what the fuss is about guest blogging in the first place. Most blogs have no-follow links so what the point of doing ?

Not all blog's do but Matt Cutt's seems to be making it a big deal about guest blogging. He did target the web directory industry years ago and that's never been the same.

True, the directory issue was one of the key points of the Penguin update when loads of directories saw their page rank drop from 4, 5, and 6 to 0 and 1, instantly removing the amounts of "link juice" from websites at a stroke

Are sure you are not confusing blog commenting with guest blogging?

The big fuss right now about guest blogging is that Matt Cutts posted on his personal blog his opinion on guest blogging for SEO purposes. If you read the article for yourself you will see there are still valid reasons to guest blog if you choose to. Guess he thought the SEO world needed some excitement.

I doesn't come as a surprise when searchengineleaks leaked a number of blogs offering paid guest posting deals just to manipulate rankings. It is not really about the email Matt received (don't even know if he in fact, received it) but it was about the rise of spam guest posts all across the web. I don't know why they wouldn't just discredit the link instead of penalizing a website outright.

The reason one would guest blog is because it provides exposure to your own blog, and provides a "link" to it, which will improve your pagerank.....
