Hello Hello,

 

since Matt Cutts guest blogging article came out people somehow freak about guest blogging.

mattcutts.com/blog/guest-blogging/

However, what I was always wondering is the fact, how google actually knows that a guest blog is a guest blog ?

 

Are there any specific tags in the source code ? Or how does that work ?

 

Why I ask ?

Well... when people are getting so frustrated about it saying, it's really bad that google does hit you if your guest-blogs aren't nofollow links... I mean from where does google know ?

 

For instance.. if I would run a really busy blog... I could still offer that people write articles for me. And ?

I wouldn't mark it as guest blog - I could simple write the name or mention the name from that specific Author contextual in the article.

 

And then what ? I dont' get it.. I mean.. maybe I am getting this topic totally wrong .. but heck, don't understand the whole panic about it if you could simple add a contextual link... couldn't you ?

They can't.

 

Computer algorithms identify patterns and if you are a link building "guest blogger", you leave behind a trail that even Inspector Gadget could follow, without any help from Penny.

You are getting it wrong. Google doesn't care if people have guest posts on other sites. They simply don't want them to be a vehicle for keyword rich anchor text links to other sites.

hmmm.. ok.. so you mean.. you could add hundreds of links into your article... with crazy repeating spammy anchor text.. and that's simple something google doesn't like... period..  right ? that's what you meant ?

 

I noticed lot's of webpages with this so called blogroll ... isn't a blogroll actually exactly something like that ?

or is this something that can't be said in general for all blogrolls ?

 

never really understood why you actually do that ?

No. You could add one keyword rich link to your site and Google may not like it. 

 

It's all about intent, my friend.

Intent to manipulate the system. If I can identify crap then google ought to be able to do the same.  Some of the patterns are so ridiculously inane that it's embarrasing. What's even more embarrassing is that many blog owners leave the stuff up there promoting foolishness.

 

Great post

I'll be sure to come back for more

just plain terrible or nonsensical English

the post is so far off topic that you can measure the distance in light years

If you are keeping track of the IP addresses posting this stuff you'll find massive repeat offenders.  You will find some posting the same spam from multiple different locales around the world hoping to trick the system. I have a database full of this stuff that I've been collecting for several years.
