We all know that guest posting on blogs is great way to gain great exposure for your website or blog as well as boost its SEO. But not all sites will give you great exposure or any SEO benefit if Google thinks your backlink sites are low-quality or spammy. Since the Panda update, Google has been a little more holistic in their approach to ranking and a high number of links to your site isn’t the only factor they take into account in determining the SERPs. Today, not only do you have to have an awesome site, but links to your site also have to be awesome.
