In response to “Guest Posting at onlineustaad”

You might get most sense of what I’m about to say if you head over to
I pretty much agree with every thing the article is talking about whether it talks about creating back links or linking internally in your site or article base. But it really intrigues me When it comes to point 6, which is guest posting.
Why it Worries me
I hope you read the aforementioned article and helped me not to summarize the entire article, so that I’ve more time prove my point.
The author give us great use of guest posting and how to directly link your blog from the post your are writing as guest and how it’ll help rank your site better along with direct organic traffic
Once it gets published, you would get direct organic traffic and greater chance to increase your blog ranking.
But it’s a very bold statement your making in this time and age if you really care about Search Engine Optimization, because Google has changed so much, Panda or Humming Bird and other unnamed updates Click here to find more about how Google frequently updates. Even Matt Cutts has to back paddle every now and then.
Let’s what he say in October 2012
Width = 560px Height = 315px
To summarize it a bit.
Guest posting is good because it brings good insights and great information
But you would definitely get confused when you watch this video of same person
Width = 560px Height = 315px
I wouldn’t recommend that you make it only way to gather links or send thousands of email to just blog on some one else site
What I got from those videos
May be in my writings you will not see a clear answer to that article and but that’s I’ve understood that article and that’s how I’m supporting this response.
Either Matt Cutts was right from the start or we have miss read it completely. Anyway you should keep you eyes open not only as a guest poster but as an owner of a website too. Because a lot of small business got into this trap. They are thrilled when they get requested for guest posting but sooner they realize that they are spammed too much. Your website reputation will get affected if you site links to an online resource which has low quality content.
Normally this happens when we outsource our Site’s Search Engine Optimization. Because spammer are get paid for back linking and soon they will disqualify articles with too much spamming, as their only job is to create back links. Google will discount any kind of link building technique that duplicated and the one that is not natural
Guest Posting Still has its Place
Guest Posting may not get you any where closer to SEO, but I’m telling you don’t discount Guest Blogging altogether. When you write for other blogs, you’re introducing yourself to that blog’s existing audience. You can still create relationship or expose yourself to new audience. With that keep in mind, it’s necessary to submit posts on the blog that has consistent flow of traffic. People will know you better if you are keep writing well just because of Guest blogging.
These are my opinions, I will definitely wait for the follow up comments or posts. Share your precious thoughts.
