PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2013, Google took a firm stance on content quality; it updated its algorithm to reward quality and minimize "spammy" search results. It will come as no surprise that this emphasis on quality remains a priority in 2014. Matt Cutts, head of Google's Webspam team, recently penned a blog post, "The decay and fall of guest blogging for SEO" that has gone viral—and caused some concern for small business marketers.  


In her latest article for PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit, Julia McCoy, CEO of Express Writers, breaks down what Google's content standards really mean for guest blogging and your small business's content marketing strategy. From avoiding SPAM red flags like spelling, grammar, and spacing errors and poor quality links to tips for improving content quality, McCoy helps you ensure that your guests make your blog an informative resource for your target audience.
