Guest Blogging is Dead? A Recap of Articles Discussing It

great contentFour days ago Matt Cutts wrote about guest blogging being done and there was a huge uproar over it. He later updated his post to clarify that not all guest blogging was done :).

Bottom line, guest blogging that includes quality articles that are unique, helpful and educational published on respected websites keep the guest blogging practice alive. Low quality articles on low quality sites, those are done.

So, if you missed this announcement, or possibly articles about it, I created a list of good articles on the subject.
