Is this the end of guest blogging?

email-marketingThe spring of 2014 has brought some unwanted surprises from Google. Starting with MyGuestBlog.com being penalised and practically crucified in March, they set off for a guest blogging hunt. The next major target became PostJoint (mid-April).The question is, are we entering the era of global internet censorship? When fighting unhealthy link building and link selling Google itself generates unnatural search results. What happened with MyGuestBlog and PostJoint is in fact censorship. Any truly relevant search results were removed and now their brand name doesn't lead to the website itself but to the articles about the penalty or G+ page. Not that neutral, don't you think?Another interesting fact about this whole story is both platforms were brave enough to stand up to Matt Cutts – the head of the Webspam Team at Google. So his response may have gone way too personal and penalties became revenge.So does Google teach us to keep our heads down and abide whatever 'guidelines ' they come up with? Time will show.Take a look at the changed page below.little-original-content-newq
