Default Is It A Good Idea To Have Guest Post On My Blog?


I am new to search engine and trying to learn and share. If I put a guest post page in my blog where people will post their content with follow backlinks to their site. Will it be harmful for my blog in any ways?

It purely depends on the content and link they are adding.

If the guest poster add a copied content or the content which is unrelated to your website niche results get kicked by the Google panda. A strict moderation system from your side may solve this problem.

The link they are adding must has some metric value. If they are adding a poor reputed website in your website then sure you will lose your organic traffic.

I think it depends on content value. If you know somebody who can do a great job abour niche that you're interested in, that's a good idea to show the other point of view.

Guest blogging is always an good Idea, But you need to make sure that the content and information is unique and its should be related to same niche or may be similar domain or segments of a business.

For e.g. if you are a beauty spa then guess postings can be done on Health & Beauty..

It is good idea but my suggestion is if anybody want post an topic before publishing you have to approval from the backend side to display in your blog. By this you can publish real post and useful topics in your blog.

Its totally depends upon what type of content you are going to allow in your blog. If the content is unique and informative enough to attract the visitors or readers then its ok to allow content from guest writers. But be conscious about one things that dont allow any spamming in any way.

Don't do anything for the links or help people who's main purpose is to link to their site. This is a dangerous activity that can precipitate penalties all around. If you do accept a guest writer, ensure that the post adds value for your visitor and is something your visitor would want to read. It must enhance your site and your visitor's experience. Otherwise, it might be considered spammy and will hurt you.

Your priority is quality content that is going to help your website be an authoritative source of information for your customers. Having guest posts on your blog isn't inherently a bad strategy, but you shouldn't utilize it simply as an SEO strategy, it has a more important purpose that you need to prioritize. I'd also suggest keeping guest posts to a minimum and make sure you publish some of your own quality content as well. You'll want to see if you can do guest posts on other quality sites too.
