What Happen In Guest Blogging Now?


Best Answer chrishirst , 17 February 2014 - 08:23 AM

Actually if you read correctly you will find that it is "Guest" blogging for gaining links not "guest" blogging [full stop] / [period] / [end of story]

 

So it is only the "experts" and "link builders"  that need to change, any one who uses "guest" blogging for the right reasons, does not need to change anything at all, just as it is with ALL Google 'updates' if you are behaving as if search engines did not exist, .... You won't have a problem when search engines retaliate..

Yesterday, I'm looking for the trend of SEO in 2014 when I stumbled in blog page of Matt Cutts. In his recent post, he said that "when you're doing guest blogging you should stop because it has become more spammy practice." If Matt Cutts is serious (he really is) on dealing to stop guest blogging then will guest blogging will be out in seo trend?

That's potentially true, if done correctly. Unfortunately, the VAST majority of people advocating guest blogging have no idea what it means to "do it correctly." Guest blogging is not an easy, high-volume/mass-market kind of activity. It takes time, talent and effort to do it right.

I think the main thing is if you are guest blogging then you should look for high quality sites.  However, if you approach a high quality site, then it is hard to get a guest blog on that site because that site is being approached by a lot of people because it is high quality and most likely that site already has a set of authors that is likes to work with.  That is why it is very hard to get your foot in the door.  However, here is some advice, when you approach the site owner, make sure you first get to know them and the site and what it is about.  Find another way to engage them and do not immediately just ask them to do a guest blog post, find some other way of engaging them and when you do, add value to them.  For example, maybe you mention them in a blog post you write.  Find as many ways to engage them and keep track of the relationship in a CRM solution.  Once they know who you are, then figure out how to ask, but make sure the content you create for them is epic and very relevant to their audience.  Get to know their audience and what they like.  I hope this helps.
