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