Matt Cutts speaks on the Guest Blogging for Links topic:
[youtube.com...]

"Sometimes it gets taken to extremes... when you're just doing it as a way to sort of turn the crank and get a massive number of links, that's something where we're less likely to want to count those links."

That's interesting, and kinda what I would have expected from over-marketed stories.

Later on, Matt mentions about "high quality people": I wonder how they are defined. Is this where author profile status in Google is the benchmark?

Not sure there needs to be a definition of a high quality person in terms of SEO. I think Matt was probably just refering to the value a respected profressional can bring to your site from guest blogging.

Or maybe he just meant "no scumbag SEOs looking for links" and was being polite. ;)

I get offers to publish these "guest posts" all the time.
They are original but they spruik a dozen versions around, all embedded with the same links.
And they want me to publish it for free!

Bring back the honest link buyers, I say.

Give it a year and a half and it will be considered unnatural :)

Okay, what should people do on your opinion?
How much you would like to charge for one guest post with couple of backlinks?
