But in Recent years Many spammers tried this method to manipulate search Rankings by just submitting low quality guest posts with some backlinks in it and they succeeded too. This is the worst thing happen for original good writers because they know Sooner or later Google will take action on this. They will not let Spammer top the Rankings.
