    I am thinking about having some people do guest blogging on my blog to maybe help it get better search engine rankings but I don't know if that is good for SEO or bad for it.

    Well if you have a new blog ready to get some traffic, then I would refrain from using guest posting, but mind you it is a strategy that enables your brand to get more traffic for many years to come.

    Guest blogging is better for SEO. You may see many blogs getting benefit out of it. At the same time, it's important to accept quality blogs with fresh content.

    Several years ago we used to do guest blogging and the blog owners would exchange links. It used to work out very well for both blogs because it helped with the rankings of both. I do not know if this is still a good method these days but it should be as long as the blogs that you link to are not poor quality or spam blogs.

    I have seen guest blogging mentioned in many blog posts that relate to some kind of SEO and it seems to be something that is generally thought of as good.

    My friends that are bloggers do this to help their blogs get backlinks and better rankings. They say that it is good for seo and they are helping me find good places to find blogs that accept guest posts for my future use. I think you should do it.

    If the blogs where you are linking the guest blog posting to are good quality blogs then that should help the SEO for your own blog perhaps.

    You just want to make sure that you are not linking back to bad sites or that might hurt the SEO of your own blog.

    I have read some articles and had a couple of people tell me that it is good for the SEO of your blog. I was looking for ways to improve the rankings of my blog and that was something that kept getting mentioned.

    I did read that you have to be careful about the links and where they go to and come from.

    If they are adding new blog posts to your blog then that is probably good as long as they are good quality posts. Just make sure there is not any copied posts from another blog because that can hurt your ranking.

    What if the website is good at first then it it changed later to a bad site? How do we know if it changed?

    Guest Blogging is really a great way to increase traffic and gaining quality backlinks. You can do guest blogging on relevant high authority websites which will help you to increase your website traffic and also help you to build your authority online.

    Guest blogging according to me is the best link building strategy. The reason being once you will post your blog on the site, you will receive traffic from the website for many years to come.

    Guest blogging if done in moderation can be good for SEO. Today as content has become even more important to and the search engine algorithms can recognise the good content. Thus guest blogging is good for SEO.

    so guest blogging on high authority websites increases authority? I though that the quality of your content does that.

    We should only do a little guest blogging so we don't get problems from the algorithms of search sites?

    Why though? Maybe because of link building?

    I have never done any guest blogging but I hear of it some times.

    Guest blogging can be good or bad for a site depending on if the sites that you are linking to/from are good, relevant, quality sites and the links are appropriate.

    If you are getting links from a bad site then guest blogging can actually harm your site so use caution. ;)
