Off Site Optimization
Off page SEO refers to other web sites and the referral links coming from those sites. Those links are called backlinks. The referring property can be another blog or business website, a social property like Facebook, a citation, or article comment linking back to your page. There are other ways of receiving authority backlinks, but these are common and are typically simple to obtain.
• Link Outreach – Most likely you have done business with another business that has a website, or you have an acquaintance or networking partners that have sites. Take the time to reach out to anyone of these individuals in Clearfield borough and ask them to feature an article about you or your company on it. My recommendation is that you write it to save them the hassle. Be sure to include a website and return the favor to them by creating a link to their page from your site. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Clearfield borough and you are wanting to rank for a local Clearfield borough service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social Platforms – By setting up social profiles like Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Flickr you have the ability to send links to your property from the account profile. You can also send links out from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to link out, just gotta get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a fantastic way to produce a backlink. Setting up profiles in local directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will provide you with the chance to not only build a local presence in Clearfield borough, Pennsylvania on those profiles but to also backlink to your page from that profile.
• Social 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 article, comment and engage with the community, then leave a link in your comment that links back to your site. That is a comment link.
