I wanted to get some opinions from people who think their Google sense is keen. I'm going to give you a scenario then you tell me how you think Google would feel about it.

  • There's a blog that is 100% populated with guest blog posts.
  • The site was designed just for people to make guest posts about their new online services.
  • The site charges $5 per guest blog post.
  • The site has very a quality guidelines page and states that the fee is for the quality review.
  • The quality guidelines include: unique content only, minimum 300 words, must include a photo, must provide the reader valuable content.
How do you think Google would feel about this scenario?

The fact that you posted this in the link building category rather than the content one is all I need to know.

It's a scheme. Nothing more nothing less.

Google won't "feel" anything, it's a machine!


It simply analyses factors and signals then calculates and assigns a numerical value to the URL. Which may or may not be in your URLs favour.

...Ever since the first computers, there have always been ghosts in the machine. Random segments of code that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul.

Why is it that when some robots are left in darkness, they will seek out the light? Why is it that when robots are stored in an empty space, they will group together, rather than stand alone? How do we explain this behavior? Random segments of code? Or is it something more? When does a perceptual schematic become consciousness?

When does a difference engine become the search for truth? When does a personality simulation become the bitter mote... of a soul?...

A bad guest blog post is spam. if the only criteria is 'pay us to post' it ain't guest blogging. Spam is spam It is spam by another name (to paraphrase Bill Shakespear
