Do you visitor submit for web optimization causes?— Dr. Marie Haynes🐼 (@Marie_Haynes) November 17, 2022
I'm a bit shocked as a result of in 2014, Google claimed guest posting dead for SEO reasons and has penalized many guest posting networks since. Even in 2021, Google said it has many strategies to detect and never rely hyperlinks from visitor posts, warning SEOs to nofollow those links and that these hyperlinks have no value.
