PostHeaderIcon 11 Off-Page SEO Techniques That Will Increase Your Rankings

Off-Page SEO Techniques

Some time ago, I wrote a post about on-page SEO techniques. I’m glad because that post got a lot of appreciation from my readers. It was like my hard work is paid off.

By the way, do you still remember what was discussed in that post? πŸ˜‰

And now as I promised, besides discussing about on-page SEO techniques, I will also discuss about off-page SEO techniques as well. So this time, I wrote a post about off-page SEO techniques that will increase your rankings for sure.

However, before we begin with these great SEO techniques, let us equate our knowledge about On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO. I tried to explain it as simply as possible:

  • On-Page SEO >> All the things that you do ON your website in order to gain higher rankings, such as internal linking, optimize your page titles, etc.
  • Off-Page SEO >> All the things that you do OFF your website in order to gain higher rankings, such as article submission, social networking, etc.

Okay, let’s get started..
Here it is 11 specific techniques for off-page SEO that will increase your rankings in search engines with certainty. Follow these techniques and be prepared for higher rankings.

1. Social Networking

Social NetworkSocial networking is an important step to build your online reputation, especially reputation in your niche. By using social networking, you can advertise your website and at the same time can increase its popularity as well.

Try to take advantage of the most famous social networking sites to promoting your website or blog. These sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, etc, make an account and complete your own profile there.

You can expand your online network by interacting with the people who will give a positive impact on your website or blog. Share things useful with each other and respect each other, promote your blog and build your online reputation with honesty.

SEO isn’t about content creation. It’s about content promotion.

2. Blogging

One of the best ways to promote your website is by creating a blog. With a blog, you will continue to write the latest content that will give encouragement to your visitors to keep visiting your website.

One more advantage, if you publish content regularly, then the search engines will crawl your website more regularly as well. Of course, this act will give your website a higher ranking in SERPs.

Find out the various types of content and publish a lot of unique content for your blog. Create content that explains straight to the point and convey your message with content length as short as possible.

Find out ways to write good content for your blog, both in view of the readers as well as in view of the search engines. That way, you can get credit from your readers and the search engine as well.

Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.

3. Forum Marketing

Involve yourself in online forums that have relevance to your sites niche. Build your reputation as person experts in your niche by answering the questions that arise in your thread, give useful advice, etc.

Little tips for you; use the forums “Do-Follow” which can give access to your website by putting link in your signature. Search engines will crawl your website for sure.

4. Blog Marketing

BloggingAll you do is simple; you just need to comment on other blogs that have the same niche with your blog. The advantage is you can add your links in the comments section. If the blog is included in DoFollow blogs, then your links will be crawled by the search engines, and certainly will increase your rankings as well.

5. Search Engine Submission

Although search engines will surely find your website, but they will not find your website as soon as you cook instant noodles. It took them a while to find it.

What should I do to speed it up?

A simple way you can do is to submit your website to the most famous search engines like Bing, Google, Yahoo, etc.

6. Link Baiting

One of the popular ways of promoting your website is link baiting. Simple logic, if you can create a booming unique post, then certainly someone else would want to link it to their website.

Well, you don’t have to create your own content. You can copy from other people’s posts, but don’t forget to include their link as a reference for your readers.

If you have content that can be trusted, then others will do the same act for you. With this, your link popularity will increase rapidly.

The objective is not to β€˜make your links appear natural’;
The objective is that your links are natural.

7. Directory Submission

Directory submission is all about choosing the right directory and selects the category for submission effectively.

For maximum results, rather than submit to general directories, you better submit it to the more specific niche directories. The results were not going to be quick, but it will definitely be there.

8. Social Bookmarking

Social BookmarkingThe search engines really love social bookmarking sites because the content coming very regularly. You can submit your most recent posts on sites such as Delicious, Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, etc.

One thing you should consider is when you submit your post makes sure you use the proper tags. Social bookmarking can increase your traffic and your rankings depend on how effectively you use tags and participate in it.

9. Article Submission

Are you used to create the original article made by yourself?
If so, you are allowed to submit it to the well-known article directory sites, such as Ezine, Now Public, etc. Traffic would come towards your website through people who read your article. You will likely also get backlinks as well.

Content doesn’t win. Optimized content wins.

10. Video Marketing

Video marketing can be used if you are using video content on your website. In order to get more traffic, you can submit the videos on video sharing sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, etc. Your readers will be easier to find your website while increasing your traffic and your rankings as well.

11. Answer Questions

Answer QuestionsSites like Yahoo Answers are one of the ideal places to increase your link popularity.

How can that be?

Find questions that related to your site niche. And then, answer the questions that have relevance to your site niche. You can put a link to your website in the source reference as well. The people will more easily find your website and you will also be labeled as an expert in your chosen field. Is there anything better than this? πŸ™‚

Building a website without SEO is like building a road without direction.

That’s it! 11 off-page SEO techniques that will increase your rankings for sure. I believe, these techniques don’t represent all of the off-page SEO techniques, there are many other techniques that have not been mentioned in this article.

  • Hi Nanda,

    Sorry for being late this time, just been a little overwhelming lately, though I am glad I am here now πŸ™‚

    Yes, being bloggers, we need to take care of both, onsite and offsite SEO techniques, though honestly speaking, I hardly do much of these myself. I know it’s wrong, but it’s lack of time from my end mainly, but I am working on it for sure. This like directories and forums can do wonders if you are really into them, which again I rarely visit (forums), and even the bookmarking sites, still need full attention from my end. So, your post is a great reminder for me to do up all of those!

    Thanks for sharing this informative post with us. Have a nice week ahead πŸ™‚

    • Hi Minhaj,

      Welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

      Thanks so much for your nice words. I really appreciate it!

      Yes, I agree with you. Both in the forum and the blogging world, you have to give more value to them. If you want to leave comments on other blogs, you must give a sincere comment from your heart.

      It is pointless to leave a comment which aims to get a link back. The blog owner will be immediately aware of it. πŸ˜€

      Yes, I will check your articles as soon as possible. I hope you can be a little patient. Since I just started actively blogging, there are many things I have to do. πŸ˜‰

    I have a question related to forum. I join about 5-6 forum. The question is. How many post we should reply or create in a day per forum. is there any limit of post in SEO.

    Thanks in Advance.
