1. Guest posts are written just for a back link:
One of the main reasons why I stopped accepting guest posts is because they are written only to get a back link. There is no doubt that these articles are really well written but they don’t have anything that grab the viewers attention. As Far we had written about Google dofollow Penalty is coming. Once Google penalized your website very difficult to recover from Google penalty, so be careful before publishing guest article.

4. Grammatically strong but research wise not good:
Many author write guest posts just for getting a back link. When you read out their complete article you will find one thing that they have no research related to the topic. It’s nothing more than a bag of words with nothing interesting.
5. Your writing v/s guest author writing:
If you have published some guest posts and didn’t see any improvement then check the stats of your website, and find those articles which grab the most attention in the recent time. If in these articles if your written articles got more attention then it only means one thing that readers want to read your written content and they are ignoring the guest author’s written content.
There is also more and lots of difference between your and guest post, even you getting guest posts free or buying articles, but a guest authors do not know, what your blog’s actual need, they just write post for their backlink or for just money.
6. When you are publishing too many guest posts:
If you are publishing too many guest posts and didn’t see any improvement in traffic then it means that you have to stop publishing that content and write something unique in your own words.
7. Boring articles:
One thing that I noticed in guest posts that they are really boring and are not readers friendly. That article which are written only for blog text/ratio increasing or for backlink, which article has not any mean, or readers doest not have any interest in article, that are boring articles do not publish it.
8. Guest writer posts only for a link:
Many bloggers write only for getting a back link. Their articles are not properly written and don’t have anything that can grab the viewers attention.
Finally I would like to tell you if you are a blogger then write something in your own words and if you are getting a decline in a traffic then it only means one thing guest posts are not for you brother.
