Off site SEO refers to other web sites and the inbound links coming from them. These links are called backlinks. The referring site can be another blog or company site, a social property like Pinterest, a citation, or article comment linking back to your property. There are other means of getting referral links, but these are common and usually easy to get.

• Link Outreach – Most likely you have done business with a company that has a website, or you have friends or networking partners that have a business site. Simply reach out to anyone of these individuals in Ellsworth and ask them to post an article about you or your company on it. My recommendation is that you write it to save them the time. Be sure to create a ”dofollow” backlink” to your {site and return the favor to them by linking to their site from your property. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Ellsworth and you are wanting to rank for a local Ellsworth service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.

• Citations – Citations are a legitimate way to build a referral link. Setting up business profiles within directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will allow you the opportunity to not only create a local presence in Ellsworth, Maine on those profiles but to also send links back to your web page from that property.
