There are many other ways of receiving referral links, but these are common methods and are typically simple to obtain.
• Link Outreach – There is a chance you have done business with another business that has a site, or you have friends or networking partners that have personal site. Just reach out to one of these people in Easthampton Town and ask them to feature an article about you or your products on there. My suggestion is that you write it to save them the hassle. Be sure to give yourself a link back and return the favor to them by building a link to their website from yours. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Easthampton Town and you are wanting to rank for a local Easthampton Town service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.

• Citations – Citations are a legitimate way to create a referral link. Creating profiles in local directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will give you the opportunity to not only create a local presence in Easthampton Town, Massachusetts on those profiles but to also send nofollow backlinks to your site from that property.
• Social Comments – I have had personal success finding articles on the internet that were topical to our web page and leaving a comment on them with a backlink to our webpage. Don’t be a spammer, search for an interesting article, leave a comment and engage with the online community, and leave a URL in your comment that refers back to your site. That is a backlink.
