The articles I post are fairly good, detailed info, and often 2000-5000 words, so one would think that SEO would be pushing my content up in the serps, not so fast.
I took the time to go back and actually analyze around 5 blogs that had some decent stats, they had good DA, PA, and TF, and the result I got back were not very positive....
Out of 5 blogs I analyzed...
(ones that I have gotten backlinks from)
- most having no real organic traffic
- most not using any sort of paid advertising
- most having very few ranking keywords
Now I ask you, how can a blog that accepts guest posts, looks very clean on the outside, however, be so dirty on the inside, and most of these blogs receive posts either every day, or every few days, and most or all of them were active or had recent activity of posts, and all of these blogs had 100s of blog posts as one would suspect for an active blog.
One thing that comes to mind is that these blogs may be very active, but they are not very active when it comes to actually promote the content they post, and as a result, the site will get almost no ranking keywords.
ultimately, their main goal is selling guest posts, other than that, these blogs have no real value. If you have a high-authority domain with no ranking keywords, then there is no value.
So think about that next time you waste money buying a guest post, ROFL.
