That’s a bit scary a? yeah it is. The title is a bit too much though. The post is mainly about how to not get penalized by Google for letting people publish dumb posts, or links on your blog.
Because as the author says:
“When SEO companies start to abuse any link building tactic, you need a preventative plan in place because an update from Google will be coming”
That’s reality. The moment SEOs find the next thing that works they push until it is dead, or Google shuts it down. Guest posting is now the ultimate way for getting backlinks and traffic. So you know what is happening – everybody is onto it. So well be waiting to see what Google will decide.
So read that article to know what mistakes to avoid when publishing guest posts, or accepting such.

The biggest mistake people make when trying to guest post is to only think about traffic or building the next link… no, you have to think about the people who stand behind those sites and how to become friends with them. Once you build those relationships you will always get traffic and links a lot easier.
Talk to people like the are you friends, not like you just want a backlink. But you will see what I mean in this post.
“You did it! You got past the discomfort and pitched a popular blog – and they’ve agreed to showcase your magnificence. You poured hours forging the most epic work of writing. Gods will weep and babies will smile. You’ve read it, re-read it, and read it some more, and truly, this is the apex of your craft. Surely this will be your ascension to the pantheon of popular bloggers because YOU got a guest post on an A List Blog. But when it goes live… crickets…” – excerpt
Wonder why your guest post was an epic #fail? Well, take a step back and ask yourself these questions before you send your latest masterpiece to the editor-in-chief of that all-star blog.
By Neil Patel on QuickSprout
Neil is one of the best bloggers online. He’s been online guest blogging forever, along with all his other businesses. I can say this might be your most important article to read.
Although guest blogging is a nice way to get traffic, links and friends, don’t get too tied up on it. It is just a marketing method. You don’t have to spend all your time publishing, as it is slow and might not get you the wanted results immediately.
It’s a good idea to have it as an additional marketing strategy.
I just found another awesome bonus article that fits the topic perfectly and wanted to share it with you as well, so you could become an even better guest blogger, here it is:
