    Guest posting is writing and publishing articles on other?s website or blog. It is the best way to reach the audiences that you want to speak and to connect readers and get more exposure. So for exposure, branding, increased reach Guest posting is one of the best available option to choose.

    For seo propose Guest posting is what gives you a relevant and quality back link and traffic this thing leads Guest posting to a next level where millions of bloggers just like you and me waiting for it desperately to welcome the most traditional and authentic way to reach people with a quality back link so the too much love for Guest posting from bloggers makes it more and more spammy practice and low quality guest posts appearing in every minute. When you and me really loves something search engines started to hate that and same thing happen to guest posting. Search engine?s decides guest posts ?for SEO purposes? might be subject to penalties and your single guest post can panelized your site the problem is that you and me don?t know that how search engines actually define a post or a link that it was SEO purposes or not.

    So is it a decay of guest posting and we have to stop it for SEO purpose. I think NO search engines really think much different than you and me? But actually the smartest search engine of universe follow you and me and whatever we like it started to hate and a quality guest post on a quality site with no followed link won?t hurt you,me and search engines.

    I suggest that avoid low quality guest post with do follow link and stop searching seo footprints for guest posting find some real quality sites related to your content.

    What I feel is,If one is having Guest Blogs which are informative,insightful and interesting then I must say it can keep readers returning.We should focus that there are bunch of low-quality or spam sites have latched on to "guest blogging" as their link-building strategy, and we can see a lot of spammy attempts to do guest posting.

    Lets say before it was overdone, a guest post was worth a fictional 1000 SEO points to Google. Even if its only worth 175 SEO points today, people will STILL be doing it because they can just do 10x more and its better than nothing.

    For the record the "real" sites that these SEO guest posts are going in now are GARBAGE and highly overrated. Most of them are clearly made for selling slots and are just as spammed as any PBN sold. Effectively they are a PBN who is cross dressing as a real site. The good HQ guest post sites are still there, they are just SO expensive now that they are less appealing. Many sellers are relabeling them as "authority" sites now in fact. There has always been a fine line between the two, but now its gone.

    I am sure that OP has been watching a lot of videos from Matt Cutts, jokes apart its all about content and budget. If you have the budget and brand behind you then guest posts becomes a swiss army knife.

    I "like" those blogs where you find culinary receipts and when you try one it's like the worst nightmare. People stop posting this kind of content on your blogs and don't think yourselves anymore some top master chefs! All in all, i do appreciate blogs and sites with good content. It makes you come over and over there.

    A real guest post, doesn't come up when you put guest post footprints into scrapebox.

    I think some webmasters are implementing rules that all guest-post link are made no-f0ll0wed, even the link on the guest author's profile.
