What Happened to My Blog Guest

By Adam  |  1 Jun 2016 12:00:00

If you've ever wondered whatever happened to My Blog Guest, you've come to the right place. My Blog Guest was a website designed for content marketing: writers would post pieces of content, business owners could come and look for content and many nice combinations were made. There were also lots of links built up to and from My Blog Guest and it was a service which was valued very highly by those in the internet world: it was good for SEO, presented good opportunities for writers and was a generally pleasant site.

 

But if you write "My Blog Guest" into Google, you won't find it anywhere; is it gone? Well, the reason you won't find My Blog Guest is because Google did not like what they were doing at all - they saw it as against their code of conduct and an exploit of their system. Not only did they not like the way that it gave out links, but they also did not like that certain users were specifically asking for money for their content. So Google penalised them and now their website simply will not rank - but they didn't just penalise them, the websites of many users were penalised too and the value of all links from there was suddenly removed. This meant that hours and hours of work had either just been erased, or retroactively made into a detriment. Understandably, this was devastating to many people, both financially and emotionally.

 

So why am I telling you this story? Well, it serves as a good cautionary tale. Google has a lot of power over a website's ranking and so you don't want to get on their bad side. My Blog Guest may appear to have been a perfectly legitimate idea, but it was still at odds with what Google wanted. If you use any methods which seems to exploit any aspect of SEO, even in a minor way, then just be conscious of the fact that, while it may be beneficial at first, it could soon come crashing down on you.
