Off page SEO refers to other properties and the inbound links coming from those sites. These links are called backlinks. The referring web property can be another blog or company site, a social property like Youtube, a citation, or blog comment linking back to you. There are many other ways of getting authority backlinks, but these are common methods and are typically simple to obtain.
• Link Outreach – You have probablyI’m sure you have done business with another company that has a website, or you have friends or networking partners that have sites. Take the time to reach out to anyone of these connections in Clarinda and ask them to post an article about you or your company on there. My suggestion is that you create it to save them the time. Be sure to give yourself a website and return the favor to them by creating a link to their website from your web page. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Clarinda and you are wanting to rank for a local Clarinda service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social Sites – By setting up social properties like Facebook, G+, Pinterest, and Reddit you have the option to send no follow links to your property from the user profile. You can also link out from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to create links, just gotta get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a great way to create a backlink. Setting up business profiles within directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will allow you the opportunity to not only build a local presence in Clarinda, Iowa on those profiles but to also backlink to your website from that property.
• Comments – I have experienced personal success finding sites on the internet that were relevant to our page and commenting on them with a backlink to our webpage. Do not be a spammer, locate an interesting web page, comment and engage with the community, and leave a link in your comment that points back to your site. That is a backlink.
