Do you visitor publish for search engine optimization causes?

I’m a bit shocked as a result of in 2014, Google claimed visitor posting lifeless for search engine optimization causes and has penalized many visitor posting networks since. Even in 2021, Google mentioned it has many strategies to detect and never depend hyperlinks from visitor posts, warning SEOs to nofollow these hyperlinks and that these hyperlinks don’t have any worth.
However but, nonetheless so many SEOs use visitor posting for search engine optimization functions regardless of it being in opposition to Google’s tips.
