One of the most effective link building practices that help generate more traffic on a webpage is guest blogging. This is one of the best ways to be able to connect with an entirely new audience, and boost your rankings entirely. With that in mind, the quality of a guest blog is very crucial, as there are times that some poorly-made guest blogs can be seen as “spammy”, which can make it challenging for some people to post on guest blogging sites.
You’re probably doing link building for many months now, exerted too much effort building backlinks from different sites, and already tried different strategies – from broken link building to blog commenting.
Perhaps you’ve sent tons of guest post pitches, but still aren’t getting any replies. Still aren’t getting positive results.
First of all, link building is not dead. This is like saying you can’t have links to any websites aside from your own. We know it will never happen. Getting a link back from other sites will always be one of SEO’s main goals, and Google will always value this because in the first place it helps Google bots crawl the web much faster.
Google has been very clear about their feelings regarding unnatural links. Their recent actions resounded deeply within the SEO community and have inspired a higher level of discourse around things like content, quality and scalability.
In the wake of Penguin, most SEOs have abandoned their efforts with public blog networks, article galleries, link purchases, directory submissions and automated tools. Most SEO advice now includes concepts like “link earning” and focuses on “content marketing” as the preferred method of acquiring links. Upon closer evaluation, however, these new buzzwords don’t stand up to scrutiny.
