Off Page SEO
Off site SEO refers to other properties and the links coming from those sites. These links are called backlinks. The referring web property can be another blog or business website, a social property like Pinterest, a citation, or blog comment linking back to your page. There are many other ways of getting authority backlinks, but these are common and are typically simple to get.
• Link Outreach – Most likely you have done business with a business that has a website, or you have friends or networking connections that have sites. Just reach out to anyone of these connections in East Peoria and ask them to include an article about you or your business on the site. My suggestion is that you create it to save them the hassle. Be sure to include a back link and return the favor to them by creating a link to their site from your property. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in East Peoria and you are wanting to rank for a local East Peoria service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.
• Social Media – By setting up social profiles like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Reddit you have the ability to send no follow links to your site from the account profile. You can also link out from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to link, just need to get creative.
• Citations – Citations are a legitimate way to get a backlink. Setting up business 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 East Peoria, Illinois on those platforms but to also send links back to your site from that profile.
