Pumping legit guest posts with marketplace links. Effective? Ethical?

    I apologize if this has been asked previously. I did some searching and could not find a specific answer.

    Let's say I got some links by guest posting on real blogs. These aren't the highest metric domains, but they get some amount of organic traffic.

    Can(should) I 'pump' these posts that link to my money site up with PBN links from the marketplace, for maximum benefit? Would I be putting these innocent bloggers in harms way by doing so? These are legitimate blogs, so I would think that even 'negative SEO' should not get them deindexed unless they are employing their own blackhat tactics.

    Would just sending social signals to these posts be safer? Would it even be effective or would I be better off spending my time and energy doing more outreach and getting more domains linking to my money site?

    Thanks for reading!

    I allow guest posting on a couple of my blogs, I also tell the guest poster that they can't build links to the post, beyond a shout back on their site to the post or social shares.
    I had one guy ignore that and build a gsa blast of 15,000 junk links to his guest post. I simply deleted the post and redirected it towards his.

    Don't toss links to someone else's site that you wouldn't want going to your own.
