Guest Blogging Has Legs – This Link Building Method Is Different

This time it might just work out for everyone. Link building has had a long and volatile past. Link buying got smacked down by Google. Link farms and content farms...smacked down.

And all along, while everyone is being rewarded with traffic, Google's best recommendations for SEO are being followed. It is highly unlikely that any Google algorithm update is going to include a filter to exclude quality content. It's kind of their lifeblood as well as ours. We are in this together. So, as you consider guest blogging or even ramping up your guest blogging...
