Off Page SEO – Use my methods!
Every marketer needs to make the most of their on page SEO and off page SEO, to get maximum results with their posts and pages. The main reason we want to optimize every post and page, is to help them rank well on Google, Yahoo and Bing. If we can’t rank posts and pages high on the search engines, then you have no chance of getting organic traffic from them. We need to make sure we optimize everything we do, so we can get much more results, traffic means leads and subscribers, leads and subscribers turns into sales and commissions.
There are many ways to optimize your posts and pages and I will explain some below and give you some off page SEO tips. Google, Yahoo and Bing are FREE traffic sources, so try to take advantage of that.
Once your site starts receiving traffic, it’s a good idea to add social like buttons to all your posts and pages you want shared around the net. If you provide good content, then there is a great chance your visitors will share your work to their friends and family. Adding a Facebook, Twitter “Like” boxes on your sidebar will also help grow your fans to your fan pages. Once you have a good following, then you can get almost instant traffic when you update new posts on your blog. This will bring your fans back to your site to check out your new posts and there is a great chance they will “Like” your new pages.
Google has made it very clear that social “Likes” is now a ranking factor when it comes to ranking sites in the search engines.
When it comes to off page SEO techniques, guest posting beats the lot! Guest posting is one of the most popular ways to get free traffic, backlinks, a fantastic way to brand yourself and a great way to get your name out there. Many marketers don’t do any guest posting and this is where they go wrong because if you find a high authority site with a PR4 and get a guest post accepted, then you will have a PR4 link, good chance of getting traffic and your branding yourself to a related high authority source.
This is truly the best and easiest way to get your posts ranking well, because high PR sites will boost your rankings. If you just place a link here and there to small unknown sites, you won’t see much in return.
Create More Off Site Content
There are lots of off page SEO techniques and this is another great one. Try to make more content around your posts. For example: make videos and post them to videos sites, then link them back to your specific page. This will drive traffic to your page and will provide your page with free backlinks, which don’t take much time to create either. There are many other forms of content you can make like, podcasts, slideshows, Ebooks, Info graphs, Press Release sites and there are many more. If you can make different kinds of content then link it all back to your pages, you will then see more traffic and backlinks, these are great off page SEO tips.
Get involved in forums
A good way to get your name out on the net is by getting involved with other marketers and helping people, you can give away free Ebooks which you make. Try to help people and give them as much value as you can. Many forums allow you to add signature links into your comments, so these are good ways to get backlinks and drive free traffic, and its targeted traffic.
Submitting articles to high PR article directories is a great off site SEO method, because you get more free backlinks and a possibility of getting traffic from these articles too. Try to target long tail keywords in easy ranking niches, because they will rank higher and have more chance of reaching more people.
You can drive traffic to your site, and this is a good method to get “Likes” onto your pages, like I talked about before, social “Likes” are now a ranking factor. PPC can speed up the growth of a blog dramatically, although you will need the funds to make this successful.
Word of Mouth
This is well-known as “viral marketing” and if your content is providing great value, then you can make almost anything go viral, just make your content stand out from the rest! A good way to make something go viral, is to make “how to” videos and step by step guides. If you can make great guides to help people, many other sites in your niche may link to your pages, this is called “link baiting”.
I know this post is more about “off page SEO” but adding content on a regular basis, also helps rank your pages. Why? Well, Google “LOVES” fresh new content and it loves domains which are providing more content on a regular basis. If you can be consistent, then you see higher rankings and domain authority will be given to your domain. The more domain authority your site carries, then the higher your posts will rank without backlinks. This makes your job much easier and will mean, you won’t have to try so hard to get loads of backlinks. Imagine if your post could rank on page 1 or 2 with no backlinks. This blog does, because of the authority and it makes my job so much easier.
I hope this post about off page SEO has given you some good tips, techniques and some good methods.
