Matt Cutts says he is cracking down on guest posting, and he has for a number of sites. The thing about guest posting is that you must write for a website that is relevant to your website, and you must provide value to the other website with the article you write. I think guest posting is awesome, not only for a link back to your site, but exposure as being seen as an expert and authority figure in front of another website's audience.

The disadvantages are that if you start writing guest posts on nonrelevant sites, Google can penalize you, and you don't want to be penalized.

Guest Blogging is currently considered as spam, only submissions in high PR sites are considered useful. SO it should be avoided, it also gives nofollow link.

You have to check the website before asking for guest blogging as if website is under spam or doing black hat will effect your website also.

Thumbs up Risks involved in Guest Blogging

As usual, Internet marketing "gurus" and their wannabe puppets have ruined a good thing for everyone else.

They abused the legitimate high-traffic blogs until they stopped guest blogging to protect their hard-won reputations, then the same "gurus" began setting up their own blogs and blog networks then selling courses on how to do it ("salting" the slag heaps after they'd already extracted most of the gold and selling them to their gullible subscribers).

As usual, Google finally woke up to what was happening and slammed the door shut. And, as usual, the innocent were caught in Google's ham-fisted "solution".

It's possible to find high-profile blogs that will accept guest bloggers but you have to write well, about useful and interesting subjects, and you have to be a recognised authority figure in your niche for them to risk being penalised.

Disadvantages of guest blogging:-

1)Low grade content is biggest disadvantage for your blog some guests authors submit post that are written with low quality content.
2)Some guests submit their posts which are unrelated to your blog's niche.
3)Guest blogging need more time and resources.

Guest posting is not safe off page seo techniques now a days because Google banned two important community of guest blog which are myblogguest or postjoint because they leave the foot prints.

I think do not go to the Guest posting.

If you do guest post on a site with low page rank for the sole purpose of getting a back-link, then you will surely be banned by Google. If you are doing guest posting on a site which gives NO follow link, then it is acceptable by Google but the article should be unique and of high quality.

I am not that familiar with "Guest Blogging". So let's say if I am good in the field of IT Security, and a friend invited me to blog for his IT blog, does that consider guest blogging? Does Google penalize that? I am not sure where does Google draw the line.

Dennis, the term Guest Blogging has come to refer to the promotional method of posting as a Guest Blogger on high ranking authority blogs (if you're serious).

That typically involves writing some speculative articles and sending them to prospective authority blog publishers with a personal note asking them if they'd be willing to post your occasional articles.

You'd normally do your homework and research which authority blogs accept Guest Bloggers ahead of time.
