What is Google's view on guest blogging for links?

High quality guest blogging is worth in some cases. In some case, what if it gets extreme? Or what if someone take it too far? So for an instance, we shall take an easy case. 

If you are a high quality writer, you give shout out to Lisa Barone or someone. She is a blogger and maybe she wishes to do a guest blog on some other blog. They must be happy to have her.

For an instance, Vanessa Fox, Danny Sullivan and such people write something on a different blog. Actually, one must be happy to have them write an article for you, as they bring lot of insight and knowledge. It will be a good win for the person who hosts the site. It will be great for those who is not so much popular, but writes really well to get to be known a little bit better.

Sometimes it can be taken to so much extremes. In that case, you can see people offering the same blog post many times or spinning the blog post and offering it to several outlets. So it will become like low-quality article. 

It is like someone is going to write the blog post and actually going to outsource that to non-expert. And then they would insert hyperlinks, so that would get into their blog post.

It's a long and time honored tradition to have high quality bloggers jump back and forth or collaborate in different ways. One should be careful because it can be taken to extremes. 

Some practices, which make a lot of sense when you think about it, with high quality people, you are doing get a massive number of links, which is less likely to be counted by Google.

There is a case for stuffs, where one think hard about the message they want to say. They will have their own point of view.

The kind of links that Google will count on, is the higher quality articles, where someone put their effort in it and in which there will be originality.

It gives a bit of a feel for the space. Guest blogs have a little bit more higher value and they might not be as worth the time.
