    Guest posting still works if you focus on publishing posts on authority blogs and avoid low quality blogs and article directories operating under the guise of blogs.

      Yeah. Sure....like one could get a guest post on those? You seriously think you could get
      a gig there as a guest blogger? Sure. They hire wannabes off the street all the time.

      Just look at the OP's sig. And now we know the rest of the story.

        I don't get the importance of alexa ranking in SEO. Using alexa as one of your metrics will never help

    Quality guest posts, on quality sites with relevant traffic, will always work. It's something I would mostly do for the traffic and brand awareness, but of course it has SEO benefits as well.

    It's good. But remember, quality over quantity. And certainly links from shady or low traffic websites CAN hurt your website.

    The point of guest blogging is to get direct traffic. And, on occasion you will get a little SEO benefit if the links you are given are do follow. However, SEO is not the biggest reason to do guest blogging as it focuses on your target customer. It's still a good tool though.

    Stop thinking in terms of SEO, and more about traffic generation. That's key for being successful online. Everyone has become obsessed with rankings and "will Google like this?". For guest blogging, ask yourself, will this blog bring in additional traffic? If yes, then go for it. If you're guest blogging on a site solely for the purposes of getting a link, then you're approaching it wrong.
