Ok, so yesterday I was reporting about some potential red flags in the world of guest posting. Today we found something that might just be related to that over on Threadwatch.
"Sorry, but we're not going to publish writer submitted pieces any longer. We're moving in a new direction and are only leveraging content produced from the editorial staff. We're focusing on linking to some of the top blogs in our directory (after all, this is what TR is known for). We want to highlight all the interesting bloggers, their content, creative videos and more.
Member 'GrowMap' says,
And in another instance over the last while, Search Engine Journal nuked the links in author bios.
One has to wonder if some of the issues surrounding how Google might be treating not only 'guest posts' and authors, but also UGC (user created content). We've seen a few penalties of late on that kinda stuff as well. Or hey, maybe they're just trying to get more peeps in the directory. Unsure.
What's your take?
