    I do not think it would be a bad idea, however, you should consider mixing several strategies together for best results. As you can not always get traffic from the same sources.

    It's good, but you'll still need link diversity.

    And you can always backlink the blog posts for more juice

  • You definitely need a bit of link diversity, as it would be completely unnatural to only have backlinks from high pr blogs. Some social bookmarking, web 2.0, videos, forum links, document sharing, answers and blog comments will add to the diversity, even if they don't add too much additional link juice.

      You should use guest blogging to get targeted traffic from blogs in your niche and build up your reputation and authority from the posts themselves. The backlinks you get are just a bonus. When you use a strategy for the sole purpose of getting links for rankings that is when it eventually backfires on you.

      Guest posting or guest blogging is a very powerful strategy, and yes, it can yield incredible results even if it is your only method of promotion.

      The thing is, every new guest post is going to get you more than one new link. And more importantly than those extra links, it's going to get you extra traffic. More traffic naturally leads to more links... At least that is the idea. Every new blog that you reach out to expand your influence in the "blogosphere"... In other words, you'll put yourself in front of that blog's "linkerati" which then do your link building for you.

      Link diversity is much less important when you are only building powerful, white hat links. It is generally (not always) a tactic that you use to HIDE bad links, or otherwise avoid a suspicious looking, SEO-driven backlink profile.

      In short, the benefits of guest posting are too many to list. Your best bet is try it for yourself and just see what happens... I'm willing to bet you will like the results.

    Google believe that "Content is king". So more guest blogging more unique article and more backlink.

    Guest Blogging on relevant niche websites will give your keywords a nice upwards push in the rankings. Also it would help your site gain some authority.

    I've had huge success from guest posting. Before doing that, it was just forum advertising and commenting and whatnot. As soon as I got 4-5 decent guest posts done, I had HUGE rankings on Google.

    You can focus on guest blogging, but I'd still do other link types just for a diverse link profile. 100% guest posts can be a huge red flag.

    I think after the Google Panda and Penguin updates, the demand of Guest blogging has increased so much because now only quality links matters. No spammers anymore. I must say Google proved that it really tracks the satisfaction level of their users. So, its a really good idea to use this strategy ...plus you can use social media marketing as well.

    Please be sure that you are using Good PR blogs for your guest posts. Blogs under 15000 Alexa rankings are really good to choose.

    Good luck!

    You will be just fine but make sure you don't use too much keywords as anchor text but use your brand name or your name instead. This will work much better than using keywords over and over again.
    Google no longer finds fate in keywords but it loves brands names so them.

        Yes, It is 100% true after Google Panda and penguin updates. Before these updates you were able to use 5% keyword density but now it is recommended to use only 1% to 2% keywords in your whole blog/article.

        Look at this thread this question has been discussed here. Post Google Panda/penguin update .

    Hi bodmov!

    Take note that links should be diversified. You should disseminate it in different areas such blogs, article directories, social media sites, forum sites, and blogging sites. Focusing only on one area will not amazed Google. SEO is still 90% off-page optimisation and it still depends on the quantity along with the quality of backlinks. You cannot create many backlinks by just posting to guest blogs.

    Guest blogging is a white hat technique in Google eye. Guest blogging provide traffic and obviously backlinks to your website. It is the great way to get links from different websites in your niche.

    But this process is a time taking process and in the meanwhile you can try some other things like blog commenting and forums.

    It will give you more benefit.

    Guest posting works, its as simple as that. However how well it works will be determined by several factors:

    1) The quality of the blog that the guest post is placed on ( try for a DA of 30+ )
    2) The relevance of the blog to the target site
    3) The quality of the written content

    Get those 3 principles right and you will be successful in terms of guest posting
