SEO Theory’s Michael Martinez has published a new article titled ‘Guest Posts without Link Building’.
Guest posting is seen as synonymous with link building. In his article, Martinez explains guest posting minus link building.
He says, “Guest posting has been abused for link building for so many years it’s now firmly entrenched in SEO mythology as a great link building strategy. It seems no matter how many penalties (manual actions) the search engines bestow upon people for using guest post links, the Web marketing world just keeps on linking.
Guest posting’s popularity owes much to the marketing to marketers that drives sales of SEO tools, courses, newsletters, and God knows what else. There is no end to cures for poor rankings on the Web. If you’ve got a problem, someone out there will take your money in exchange for a promise to cure it.
There’s no question about whether links still matter to search engines. The question marketers should always ask is, which links do search engines care about?
You and I don’t know for sure. Your favorite SEO tools don’t know for sure. And your favorite SEO bloggers and vloggers don’t know for sure”.

An effective SEO strategy can help you to get more visitors and turn your website into a profit-making machine. The search algorithm also considers your site navigation in the process of optimization.
Botify contributor Petra Kis-Herczegh has published an article highlighting some useful ways to creating an SEO-friendly website navigation.
She says, “Your website navigation is one of the primary ways that search engine crawlers find and crawl your content. A well-structured navigation can help search engines understand which pages are most important and can help shape page authority. Conversely, an incomplete or overly crowded website navigation can make it harder for crawlers to find important pages, or dilute link equity. In the below examples we will look at three different website structures and their impact on internal linking.
Website A ✔
This is a large e-commerce website with a well-organized website navigation, where the important pages sit 1 or 2 clicks away from the homepage and most of the internal ‘link juice’ is supporting these strategic sections”.
