    In my opinion, Guest posting is not dead. It just transform into more anti-spamming technique. You have to slow the speed of the posting of content on guest blogging sites. You have to be more relevant in terms oif choosing the guest blogging website for posting.

    Halwits makes an excellent point. Guest Posting did not become a questionable technique until spammers started inundating the blogosphere with poor quality guest posts. Article Directories did not become a questionable technique until spammers started flooding the web with spun articles that provide very little original content. Although there are many techniques that should not be used, others can help only if used properly. When spammers start overusing a legitimate technique, that's when Google takes a more careful look.

    Guest posting is absolutely fine and effective as long as you are posting on high quality relevant blogs using unique, original informative content.

    Blog Post is not dead, but you have to post unique and informative content, so that it looks great, not spammy...

    Not at all, Guest Posting is alive from my point of view. We are working with Guest Posting for getting backlinks and enhance traffic towards your business. It's better to choose the best Guest posting bloggers and followed their guidelines properly.

    Hi James12smith,

    Did you have any proof that show Matt cutts says Guest Blogging Will Not Help Blogger and even not help to getting good search engine result pages?

    Guest blogging still works and works well for getting Good search engine result pages.

    But be take care while getting backlink from guest posting sites.
    • you should confirm first that guest post site is related to your service/niche.
    • Reputation of the guest blog (Check DA, PA and alexa rank)
    Thanks

    Guest blogging can never die. it is just that some persons are misusing it to post irrelevant content to get backlinks. And such irrelevant content wont be indexed by Google which may hurt the guest blogger and the site on which the guest blog is posted. He needs to trade with caution here.

    The way of presentation always matters especially in any business. The way how we fine-tune the things greatly benefits the businesses.
    The effective guest posting involves in these activities:
    • Link to the post from my blog
    • Promote it on Twitter (several times)
    • Share it on Facebook
    • Thank the person
    • Stick around and respond to comments on the post

    It is not dead, but you have to make sure you are posting to high authoritative blog site or else it won't make any effect. You also have to post quality content which is not too much focused on just links alone but focused on providing quality and useful content to readers.

    That's not quite true. These so called high quality guest blogging sites are inundated with articles. This results in Google lowering the value of the outbound links to the point when the whole thing becomes meaningless.

    So while guest blogging it's dead it's in the last gasp of its useful life.

    hiii

    Guest posting strategist is not dead but SEO professionals doing a lot of guest blogging for site ranking but search engine consider it's to more and more spammy practice. As a publisher, If you are doing few things to get more benefits by guest post such as Publish always good, unique, informative, readable and original guest post content with out your spammy linkd and When you are posting guest post so Don’t label them as guest posts.

    Thanks...

    Guest Post is not dead. It works, just be unique with your content. Not with boring tips and tricks.
    Write case studies, content with stats and real world values. Make it informative and readable. Add images and stats to prove your point.
    Not just Copy-Paste-Edit content.

    Putting this on your own site works even better - don't give away your great content, keep it for yourself

    But isn't the goal of Guest-posting on someone elses blog that your own blog/site are helped in the ranking, and might get some more impressions from that bigger and better blog? So providing high quality content for them would probably benefit your own blog/site in the long run, right?

    But I also agree with you, ALSO create quality content for your own site.

    Nope. Putting it on your own site means you get the ranking, you get the link juice and you get the visitors.

    Well, that's a very narrow way of looking at the issue.

    With that assumption, there's a prerequesit that your own site

    a) is ranking higher than the other blog
    b) and by being so, generates more linkjuice
    c) that visitors actually find the site by themselves

    Guestblogging and providing great content to other blogs are ways for smaller sites/blogs to get linkjuice, and more visitors, thereby highering their own ranking, in a easier way.

    What's the meaning of creating great content if noone is reading it?

    a) is ranking higher than the other blog - adding the content to your site will improve ranking
    b) and by being so, generates more linkjuice - see above
    c) that visitors actually find the site by themselves? - better ranking means more people will find the site

    You don't need to guest blog, you can achieve great ranking just by doing on-site SEO.

    I don't argue against putting great content on your own blog, or for that matter, giving away content to other blogs that you yourself could use on your own blog/site.

    I'm just saying that guest-blogging could be used as a complementary way of getting higher ranking. Why not explore all possible avenues if it can help?
