Off Page SEO
Off page optimization refers to other pages and the links coming from those pages. Those links are called backlinks. The referring property can be another blog or business website, a social property like Twitter, a citation, or article comment linking back to your site. There are many other means of getting backlinks, but these are common and are typically easy to obtain.
• Link Outreach – Most likely you have done business with a company that has a site, or you have friends or networking connections that have personal site. Take the time to reach out to one of these connections in Country Club Hills and ask them to post an article about you or your services on there. My recommendation is that you produce it to save them the inconvenience. Be sure to give yourself a property and return the favor to them by linking to their site from your property. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Country Club Hills and you are wanting to rank for a local Country Club Hills service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social – By setting up social foundations like Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Reddit you have the ability to send links to your site from the user profile. You can also send links out from a post within these platforms. Lots of ways to link, just need to get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a legitimate way to get a link. Building profiles in local directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will allow you the opportunity to not only build a local presence in Country Club Hills, Illinois on those platforms but to also link back to your site from that property.
• User Comments – I have experienced personal success searching for articles on the internet that were relevant to our page and leaving a comment on them with a link back to my site. Without being a spammer, locate an topical article, comment and engage with the online community, and leave a URL in your comment that refers back to your site. That is a backlink.
