Off Site SEO

Off page SEO refers to other pages and the links coming from those pages. These links are called backlinks. The referring web property can be another blog or company site, a social property like Instagram, a citation, or blog comment linking back to your page. There are many other ways of receiving referral links, but these are common and are typically simple to obtain.

• Link Outreach – There is a chance you have done business with a company that has a site, or you have friends or networking partners that have personal site. Just reach out to any of these people in Evanston and ask them to feature an article about you or your business on there. My recommendation is that you create it to save them the inconvenience. Be sure to create a ”dofollow” backlink” to your {site and return the favor to them by linking to their site from yours. Also note, if they have a Google verified address in Evanston and you are wanting to rank for a local Evanston service term, that will be a positive geo relevance factor.

• Social Media – By setting up social properties like Instagram, G+, Pinterest, and Flickr you have an opportunity to link out to your web page from the user profile. You can also create links from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to link, just need to get creative.

• Citations – Citations are a great way to create a link. Creating 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 Evanston, Wyoming on those platforms but to also send links back to your web page from that profile.

• Blog Comments – I have experienced personal success finding blogs on the web that were topical to our site and leaving a comment on them with a link back to my site. Don’t be a spammer, locate an relevant article, comment and engage with the community, and leave a signature in your comment that refers back to your page. That is a comment link.
