Lately there seems to be more and more "free" guest posting "opportunities" posted in the giveaway section. This is hardly a freebie or giveaway. The thread starters always have strict criteria for something of value (original content) that you must provide them in order to quality for the guest post to be accepted. While no money is being exchanged, it's clearly a quid pro quo deal where you have to provide the thread starters with something of value and then they provide you something of questionable value. Or maybe they are brand new users with 1 post who just joined and will just strip your links after a few days of collecting free high-quality content and never be heard from again, until they open up their next giveaway. These are more accurately described as trades, and not giveaways or freebies. Can we get an official opinion on these? I think we are just asking for people to abuse the hell out of the section if we allow it. https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/free-guest-post-opportunity.1127739/ https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/free-guest-posts-health-fitness-cannabis-site-da-30-great-backlinks.1123378/ https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/free-guest-posting-offer-on-high-da-pa-blog.1127464/ These are just the ones on the first page. Many more on page 2, and beyond.
