Off Site SEO
Off page SEO refers to other pages and the inbound links coming from those properties. These links are called backlinks. The referring web site can be another blog or business, a social property like Pinterest, a citation, or social comment linking back to your property. There are many other means of receiving backlinks, but these are common methods and are typically simple to obtain.
• Link Outreach – Most likely you have done business with a company that has a site, or you have an acquaintance or networking connections that have websites. Just reach out to anyone of these associates in Chicopee and ask them to post an article about you or your services on there. My recommendation is that you write it to save them the time. Be sure to give yourself a link back and return the favor to them by linking to their page from your property. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Chicopee and you are wanting to rank for a local Chicopee service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social Platforms – By setting up social foundations like Instagram, G+, Youtube, and Flickr you have the ability to link out to your website from the account profile. You can also create links from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to send links, just gotta get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a fantastic way to create a link. Setting up business profiles within directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will provide you with the chance to not only have a local presence in Chicopee, Massachusetts on those profiles but to also link back to your site from that profile.
• Blog Comments – I have experienced personal success finding articles on the web that were topical to our page and leaving a comment on them with a link back to my site. Don’t be a spammer, search for an relevant web page, comment and engage the online community, then leave a URL in your comment that links back to your web page. That is a backlink.
