  • IF a publisher who owns a blog opens that blog up to guest publishing or user generated content, the owner is responsible for policing and the governance of that content. So if people are contributing blog posts that are full of irrelevant SEO links or exact match links, then that is the duty of the owner to edit or deny that content. A lot of times there is the opportunity to contribute to blogs that look good and polished, but then you read the posts and bi-lines, and they are full of spammy links. Those are blogs to stay away from.

  • Some sites sold their soul to guest blogging? Interesting. What does that mean exactly? That the owner doesn't write his or her own stuff? I don't get it.
