  1. Hello! I am a new blogger, and your insights are very much appreciated! I have a question: I’ve read that websites may get “punished” by Google if it finds copied content. I am curious to know if guest blogging can harm SEO? After all, it’s kind of like a copied content; even though the bloggers are safe from the copyright standpoint, I would imagine that those crawlers would not be able to determine it? I might be wrong, of course:) Thanks in advance for any info!
