I have a modest blog with a PageRank of 2 which I have been writing myself for the past couple of years. Recently I received a request that someone wanted to write a guest post on my blog ... with a link to their site for a target keyword.
At this point I am inclined to say no and simply refuse to publish this post. But I recognize the work that has been put in writing this piece and wouldn't mind publishing the piece.
However the link provided is definitely a plug, will it harm my domain in any-way? Or do I put the no-follow tag (does that help?). Should I pass the juice or should I not?
