Off site optimization refers to other web properties and the inbound links coming from them. These links are called backlinks. The referring property can be another blog or business, a social property like Twitter, a citation, or article comment linking back to your site. There are other means of receiving backlinks, but these are common and usually simple to obtain.

• Link Outreach – There is a chance you have done business with another company that has a website, or you have friends or networking connections that have personal site. Simply reach out to anyone of these connections in Coldwater and ask them to feature an article about you or your services on the site. My recommendation is that you create it to save them the hassle. Be sure to give yourself a ”dofollow” backlink” to your {site and return the favor to them by linking to their site from your web page. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Coldwater and you are wanting to rank for a local Coldwater service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.

• Social Properties – By setting up social profiles like Instagram, G+, Youtube, and Flickr you have an opportunity to send no follow links to your website from the user profile. You can also send links out from a post within these platforms. Lots of ways to link out, just need to get creative.

• Citations – Citations are a great way to build a referral link. Building business profiles within local directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will allow you the chance to not only build a local presence in Coldwater, Michigan on those platforms but to also backlink to your web page from that profile.

• Social Comments – I have had personal success locating blogs on the internet that were topical to our site and commenting on them with a link back to my site. Don’t be a spammer, find an topical article, comment and engage with the online community, and leave a URL in your comment that refers back to your page. That is a backlink.
