There are other means of getting authority backlinks, but these are common and usually simple to get.
• Link Outreach – You have probablyI’m sure you have done business with a business that has a site, or you have friends or networking partners that have personal site. Just reach out to anyone of these associates in Encinitas 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 include a back link and return the favor to them by linking to their site from yours. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Encinitas and you are wanting to rank for a local Encinitas service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.

• Citations – Citations are a legitimate way to build a link. Creating profiles within directories like Yelp, Cheap FlightsGoogle Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will give you the opportunity to not only build a local presence in Encinitas, California on those profiles but to also link back to your site from that property.
• Social Comments – I have had personal success finding sites on the internet that were topical to our page and commenting on them with a backlink to our webpage. Don’t be a spammer, locate an interesting article, leave a comment and engage with the online community, then leave a backlink in your comment that points back to your website. That is a comment link.
