It is usual to see businesses getting closed because of poor performance, but why successful businesses like StumbleUpon decided to close? The future of guest posts seems to be great, but then why Huffington Post decided to deny contributions? What can be inferred from this?

    Both of those changes happened in first half of 2018...business changes - management changes - policies change. Marketers adapt.

    Stumbleupon was worthless.

    Huffington Post stopped accepting contributions because they were all trash. It was a smart move.

      Stumbleupon was used worldwide and at the closure there were million users.Its like facebook or twitter but it was not paid. We can't say it was worthless, if it would be there won't be millions wasting time there. Same is the case with Huffington Post, contributions were of high quality. All the posts go through rigorous check and then only it was allowed to be published.

      If it would have contain trash and why it was in news, when it decided to stop contributions? Moreover,what is your opinion for Buzzfeed, Tumblr, Quora??? They are useless in your opinion?

        Bullshit. The contributor section of the Huffington Post was not high quality. It was lazy ass internet marketers using it as an article dump. The quality was slightly above Ezine Articles. That's why they shut it down. Rigorous check my ass. Did you read some of the stuff published there?

        And yes, Stumbleupon was garbage. Most of the users were bots just automating throwing more and more garbage into the bin. Nobody was getting anything of value out of Stumbleupon.

        Tumblr is more user generated trash. You have to weed through tons of garbage to find anything useful in there. When was the last time you saw a Tumblr page ranking for a high volume search term that was at least moderately competitive?

        Quora at least has some user based moderation which makes it a little better.

          I see! no I am not a favor of using these platforms and that's the reason why I even started other forum Good to put high quality article/blog on own website or as guest post for sake of Do follow link? | Warrior Forum - The #1 Digital Marketing Forum & Marketplace where I asked, its its better to use own blog or website or beg other sources to publish.

          I guess your viewpoints are strengthening my belief. For Tumblr yes, as I said I was not sure so I asked what about it. Quora, Medium and Reddit I guess are counted among good sources. Any other you would like to add?
