How do you think google handles guest posting?

Would like to hear from anyone that has done guest posting successfully without suffering any penalties. There are allot of sites I have discovered that just want good content, they offer guests to submit blog posts and if they are approved by the blog owner you can obviously add a link to it. Do you think google will flag this as paid or notice the difference? In other words would you do it or not?

Heh, first time I've seen a hat color assigned to guest posting.

How does Google handle it? Don't know, don't care. I have this thing about guest posting, I don't think you should do it. Not unless you have the free time and you KNOW that your efforts are going to bear fruit. The people I see reaping the benefits are those who provide the community for the Guest Posters, not the authors themselves.

No, I'd recommend that you keep your articles on your own site for the most part. Don't fragment your brand. Don't associate yourself with something that may come back to haunt you later, I've seen it happen.

If you do Guest Post, pick one spot and become one of the top contributors, become part of the community. Don't just guest post because you can and because you're going to get a link out of it. That type of thinking is what turns this into a commodity operation and where things go wrong.

Don't be a content whore! ;)

I'll disagree with you here, pageoneresults. I'm thinking specifically of @ViperChill, who guest posted on 6-12 blogs in a short amount of time and built up both reputation and traffic to his own site in the process.

I'm not saying it's guaranteed by any stretch, but it can work.
