Off Page Optimization
Off page optimization refers to other sites and the inbound links coming from them. These links are called backlinks. The referring site can be another blog or business, a social property like Facebook, a citation, or blog comment linking back to your page. There are other ways of receiving referral links, but these are common methods and are typically simple to get.
• Link Outreach – There is a chance you have done business with a company that has a website, or you have an acquaintance or networking associates that have personal site. Simply reach out to any of these connections in Dolton village and ask them to include an article about you or your business on the site. My suggestion is that you produce it to save them the hassle. Be sure to include a web page and return the favor to them by creating a link to their page from your property. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Dolton village and you are wanting to rank for a local Dolton village service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social Sites – By setting up social foundations like Facebook, G+, Youtube, and Reddit you have an opportunity to link out to your property from the user profile. You can also link out from a post within these platforms. Lots of ways to send links, just gotta get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a fantastic way to build a backlink. Setting up profiles in directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will provide you with the opportunity to not only build a local presence in Dolton village, Illinois on those platforms but to also backlink to your website from that profile.
• User Comments – I have experienced personal success locating sites on the internet that were topical to our website and commenting on them with a backlink to our webpage. Do not be a spammer, find an interesting article, leave a comment and engage the online community, then leave a backlink in your comment that points back to your web page. That is a comment link.
