Off Site Optimization
Off page optimization refers to other web properties and the inbound links coming from them. Those links are called backlinks. The referring page can be another blog or business, a social property like Facebook, a citation, or social comment linking back to your site. There are many other ways of getting referral links, but these are common methods and are typically simple to get.
• Link Outreach – There is a chance you have done business with someone else that has a website, or you have friends or networking associates that have a business site. Take the time to reach out to any of these associates in Creve Coeur and ask them to post an article about you or your business on the site. My recommendation is that you create it to save them the hassle. Be sure to create a back link and return the favor to them by building a link to their site from yours. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Creve Coeur and you are wanting to rank for a local Creve Coeur service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social – By setting up social foundations like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Reddit you have the ability to send links to your site from the account profile. You can also send links out from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to link, just need to get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a fantastic way to produce a referral link. Setting up profiles in local directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will allow you the opportunity to not only create a local presence in Creve Coeur, Missouri on those profiles but to also send nofollow backlinks to your page from that property.
• Comments – I have experienced personal success locating sites on the web that were relevant to our website and commenting on them with a backlink to our webpage. Without being a spammer, search for an interesting article, comment and engage the online community, then leave a URL in your comment that links back to your web page. That is a backlink.
