Guest Blogging Is Not Dead For Me! (My 4th guest posts roundup)

Through this post, I wanna convey that Guest blogging is not dead for me!

Also, I rounded up my latest 5 guest posts here with which you’ll get some paybacks.   

Few days back, Matt Cutts told that “If you’re performing guest blogging just to gain links, then it would consider as spam by Google”. So, most of the bloggers have started saying that guest blogging is dead. 

I don’t think so because it is dead only for SEO. If you’re my systematic reader, then you might know that I regularly contribute guest articles to various blogs and I am not worrying a bit from Matt Cutts’s guest blogging statements.

I came across many bloggers/marketers utilizing guest blogging only for link building purposes to get higher rank in Google search engine. They started to publish low-quality articles and even use the same articles with little modifications for SEO purposes.

But my strategy remains different! Yes!!! For me, guest blogging is to place myself as an authority in my niche and establish a genuine relationship with other bloggers.

So, I would say that you need not fear about guest blogging if you’re doing it in a precise manner.

Advantages Of Guest Blogging

You might ask me “What you’ll get from guest blogging other than backlinks?” I do have the perfect (Real) answer for you. Through my quality guest posts, I am trying to get

  •  Good exposure
  •  Brand for my blog
  •  Free traffic
  • Blog readership
  • Bond with other bloggers

Previously, I’ve rounded-up my guest posts thrice and here are my recent guest blogging activities in various blogs. 

How to find your target audience?
Every online business need to reach their target audience through some strategies.

Through this post, I listed some blogging tools and ideas to find the target audience to run your business successfully. So you could use the listed tools and ideas to reach & engage with your visitors and understand their behaviors and requirements.

Why blogging needs consistency?
One of my blogging friends asked me to write some beneficial blogging stuff for his blog readers. So I’ve written this good post for his blog on the topic “Why blogging needs consistency?”. Here I shared some valid reasons for blogging consistency together with the effective tips to be a consistent blogger.

Make money with auction sites
As “Online money making” is my fascinated niche, I used to read a lot about it and have done some experiments in making money online. I’ve given some basic and gainful selling tips for the people who wanna make income through online selling through a post and I’ve subsidized it for If you’re interested in selling products online and to make profitable money on it, you can make use of this post to grab some basic tips to make money with auction web sites.


If you’re contributing low-quality guest posts just to improve your search engine ranking, I would suggest you to reconsider your strategy as you’ll get disappoint soon. But if you are undertaking guest blogging with beneficial content to boost your brand awareness and solve the problem of readers, then  it would help you to gain more credibility and affection from other bloggers.

Whenever I send a guest post to a blog, I used to get the good relationship with that blog owner and fresh readers & subscribers for my blog. They do share my post on their network and research about me which in turn progresses my blog’s publicity.

I would say that the guest blogging is an effective way to showcase your writing skill and to impress the people with it. Hence, to grab the attention of others, offer quality guest posts to same niche blogs as it would help you to get loyal readers.

    It is just a trick, a tactic to let people know that guest blogging is not but actually not. The rapid-pace is very visible right? Well, for those who aren’t successful in guest blogging might think it is.

  8. Totally agree with your thoughts about Guest Blogging.
    It was really nice experience for me to accept your guest blog in and publish it.
    If you are building relation with other bloggers then you are going into the right direction.
    Otherwise, It may give you trouble in the future.

  9. Hi Nirmala,

    Congratulations on publishing so many great guest posts, and I’d like to say I think you’re absolutely right – I’m sure guest blogging is still a very valuable strategy, for all the reasons you state, provided you go about it the right way. As long as you’re providing high value content, whether on your own blog or as a guest blogger, that’s only going to enhance your reputation and increase your readership.

    I think Matt’s probably just trying to discourage the kind of poor quality, spammy guest blogging that’s done purely to get links, with little concern for the quality of the content.

  10. It has been said in a very wrong way, that Guest Blogging is dead.
    No its not dead. Specially for those who want exposures and building authority .
    People who are posting as guest just for links can say good bye to it because no one is gonna accept spammy posts in their blog. do you ?
    Well I know you much better, you will never stop posting as guest and may be some day my blog will be having luck to host your post 😉

    I will check these GPs by you for sure Nirmala 🙂
    Have a great weekend !!!

  11. hi thanks for this informative post though guest blogging was set up to increase blog popularity purposes but still it is used in as for well acts

  12. Yes, visitor blogging is not dead and never to be later on as well. There are such a variety of extraordinary bloggers are putting forth their profitable visitor presents on different online journals to associate with other ace bloggers and snatch new book lovers.

  13. Your guest blogging and the enviable rank of your blog proves that Guest Blogging is not yet dead!

    Your guest posts are very effective and they help inn driving a lot of traffic!

    Keep up the great job!

  14. Very nice article. You have clearly defined the benefits of guest posting. I totally agree bloggers write guest post for backlinks and guest post is dead for them but you have showed that it is way more beneficial.

  15. Of course it isn’t dead, together with any other kind of quality link building. Additionally nobody have said that it is dead. Many SEO’s and bloggers simply misread what Matt Cutts was trying to say.

  16. I’m too agree that Guest Post still alive, Saying Guest Posting is Dead, would be wrong words because Google did announced some guidelines for Guest Posting 🙂

  17. Hi Nirmala

    Many bloggers has stopped guest blogging since Matt Cutts published the post on his blog. But according to me we should keep writing guest posting because it helps us improves the visibility of our blog. Dofollow or Nofollow links should not matter at all, we should do guest blogging to promote our blog.

  18. Yes Nirmala Ji
    I also thinks that guest blogging is not dead. There are many benefits which we can get from guest blogging then why people thinks that guest blogging is dead. You have already mentioned many benefits above. Bonding with other bloggers is most important in blogging because they will help you whenever you need. Right? 😀 Happy Blogging 😉

  19. Hi Nirmala,
    I do agree with you. Guest blogging is dead only for SEO. It is still an effective way to get good exposure. Guest blogging should be done with an objective to provide relevant information to audience.

  20. Yeah mam very true.. For me writing as many articles as u can will bring a sharpness and strong keywords in your articles and Guest blogging is the best way to do dat. 😉
    Check out my blog for Guest Blogging 🙂

  21. Great post Nirmala. Guest blogging is not dead at all, as others have noted it is only spammy guest blogs that are in trouble. Quality content is still going to have value – perhaps more now that the spammy stuff will dry up.

  22. Hi Nirmala Santhakumar !!

  23. Hi Nirmala,
    Nice to meet yet another Indian Blogger at this wonderful pages.
    You just removed a great fear from the minds of many of the bloggers who wants to stick on to writing Guest post. Though Matt’s warning is there you are still having the guts to go ahead with Guest posting, I fully agree with you, that it will surely increase or boost your blog health.
    Thanks for this fearless post on guest post at a time when few of them are slightly afraid about Matt cuts statements and many discussions are going around on that statement and very few showed the guts of talking against the statement and you being one among them, I appreciate your style of writing and wish you all the best for all the future writing – of course Guest Posting
    Thanks again for the fearless writing
    Keep Going
    Best Regards
