The Fall of Guest Blogging for SEO

  1. 1. Writing and publishing an article on someone else's website or blog
  2. 2. Guest Posting in Previous years… When we go back to the previous years. We can see that guest posting was the most effective and powerful technique to build backlinks and brand value of a company or business in terms of SEO. People try to convince the site owners to post their article on the websites or blogs with links.
  3. 3. “Okay, I’m calling it: if you’re using guest blogging as a way to gain links in 2014, you should probably stop. Why? Because over time it’s become a more and more spammy practice, and if you’re doing a lot of guest blogging then you’re hanging out with really bad company” “I wouldn’t recommend relying on guest posting, guest blogging sites, or guest blogging SEO as a link building strategy.” What Matt Cutts Says…
  4. 4.  Guest posting is no longer a viable strategy for SEO backlinks. If guest posting was a part of your SEO strategy, then you’ll have to revise this.  If you do publish guest posts on your site, make sure the article is of high-quality, and that all links are rel=”nofollow”. This is absolutely important! If you’re not sure about the quality of the article, or you find the link too spammy, don’t publish the post.  As long as articles are of high-quality, and that your authors have Google Authorship set-up. This will let Google know that your authors are regular contributors to the site, and links will be fine. What Google Says…
  5. 5. What to do Now…?
  6. 6. “There are still many good reasons to do some guest blogging (exposure, branding, increased reach, community, etc.). Those reasons existed way before Google and they’ll continue into the future. And there are absolutely some fantastic, high-quality guest bloggers out there. I changed the title of this post to make it more clear that I’m talking about guest blogging for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes.” Guest Posting is Still There
  7. 7. Important points to do Guest Posting in 2014 Increase Personal Branding and Awareness
  8. 8. Reach New Audiences and Communities
  9. 9. Drive Targeted Web Traffic Through Links, Not SEO
  10. 10. Content Marketing and SEO  100% original  Well written  Relevant to your audience and  Exclusive to you
