Off site optimization refers to other properties and the referral links coming from those sites. Those links are called backlinks. The referring property can be another blog or company site, a social property like Youtube, a citation, or article comment linking back to your site. There are many other means of getting referral links, but these are common and usually simple to obtain.
• Link Outreach – Most likely you have done business with another company that has a website, or you have friends or networking partners that have personal site. Simply reach out to anyone of these associates in Crossville and ask them to include an article about you or your company on it. My suggestion is that you create it to save them the time. Be sure to create a website and return the favor to them by building a link to their page from your property. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Crossville and you are wanting to rank for a local Crossville service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social – By setting up social accounts like Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Flickr you have the option to send links to your property from the account profile. You can also link out from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to link, just gotta get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a great way to get a backlink. Creating profiles in directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will provide you with the chance to not only create a local presence in Crossville, Tennessee on those profiles but to also send nofollow backlinks to your web page from that profile.
• Social Comments – We have experienced personal success finding articles on the web that were topical to our page and leaving a comment on them with a link back to my site. Don’t be a spammer, find an topical web page, leave a comment and engage with the community, then leave a signature in your comment that refers back to your site. That is a comment link.
