It seems that our generosity has turned for the worst. On January 31, 2014, our PageRank dropped because Google has detected unnatural outbound links on our website (guest articles). To protect ourselves, we’ve decided to stop accepting guest articles. Unless your article is truly high quality and you simply want to share your knowledge with no strings attached then we would be happy to hear from you. If you’re simply looking to linking back to a specific website that more than likely isn’t related to our niche, please don’t email us.
We would like to humbly thank all the incredible guest bloggers we’ve worked with in the past. If you would like to know more about why we decided to take this direction, please check out the following article about the guest blogging by Matt Cutts: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/guest-blogging/
