    Guest blogging is still worth it but still be fair and focus on your target audience not to solely for search engine in a way that you will submit lots of content just to expose your link.

    Default Reverse Blogging for getting quality content and backlinks :)

    The problem with guest blogging is that the more popular bloggers get a LOT of requests from other bloggers to carry their articles, and unless you have an absolutely fantastic, wonderful, unique article, you'll get turned down 95% of the time. So we're going to start using a strategy we recently discovered, called "reverse blogging" -- let's say you own a flower business called Jenny's Fantastic Flowers -- of course you sell flowers for dozens of different occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

    1. Choose a subject -- like weddings. Then do a general Google search for wedding bloggers, and make it local, as in "wedding blog Sacramento", and check out a few blogs.

    2. Making your search local will allow you to find mid-level bloggers, not someone that's nationally known (nationally known = too high-and-mighty and too busy), and obviously owns a real business (in other words, has a blog for his or her own business, not for a publication like a wedding magazine).

    3. Find one who includes links to other businesses in their posts -- in other words, is used to giving backlinks to other businesses (obviously understands the SEO value of backlinks).

    4. Once you've found a good blog, you then write a simple article on a related subject -- let's say it's about how a future bride could get flower ideas for her wedding. Then somewhere in your article you put a link that would read like this -- "Andrea Smith, owner of ABC Weddings in Sacramento has a great article on how she helps brides to come up with unique flower arrangements".

    5. Then immediately reach out with an email to that blogger -- "Hi Andrea, I read your blog and loved your post on helping brides to choose their flower arrangements so much that I linked to your page here (<< this would be the link to YOUR blog page, as in -- so she can click on it in your email and verify that you have linked to her page in your post) -- and I wonder if you'd consider writing an article of your choice that I could put on my blog? Of course I'd give you credit and a link to your website. You're very entertaining and full of great info, so I hope you find my blog to be worthy!" Andrea will be totally flattered and it's much more likely you'll get an article from her, and because people love linking to stuff they've written, your website will more than likely get a great link.
    6. Then when you do get an article from Andrea, be sure to give her credit under her article, with a link to her site.

    In addition to both of you getting great links, another great aspect of this strategy is that you can get quality content and links with very little effort on your part -- you don't even have to write a long, time-consuming, fantastic article. Why beg someone to publish your article on their blog when you can flatter someone and put their article on yours?

    I would say it is still a huge factor for SEO.

    My personal opinion is guest blogging has to hit your target audience in a big way and not be too concerned with SEO. Developing that killer article is hard though, and if you spend all your time building that killer article and don't have at least a couple more awesome posts on your blog any traffic will quickly drop off. However if you have a great article that causes people to click through and find other recent posts that are just as good I'd wager there is real potential to pick up a few extra backlinks just from interested people. I find that the blogs I frequent often end up linking to each other somewhat circularly not on purpose, but just because each one has a post of note.

    Yes, Guest blogging is still worth for SEO. It is best for traffic, keywords ranking, backlink. The following points you should remember when you write guest post.
    1) Only Write for Relevant and Popular Blog

    2) Use Proper Anchor Text
    3) Avoid Keyword Stuffing and Always Keep Audience on Your Mind
    4) Only Write for the Blog Websites Where Content Manually Reviewed
    5) Don't use Spoon Content
    6) Write for users not for links or SEO purpose.

    Yes, it's still worth it, but it takes time if you do it right. By "right", I mean presenting your own ideas on important topics for your customers. You will then have every chance of being featured by influential websites and bloggers.

    Blogging is very important. You need to focus on relationship building one at a time. If you get a five percent response, this is A plus.
