What is Off-Page SEO?

Off-Page SEO, the term itself defines “Off-Page” means doing optimizations outside the website or blog, so that it helps in increasing the website or its particular page rankings in Google or any other search engines.

Replying to a question on Question Answering Sites gives you two advantages – First, you get a backlink, and Second, that question can be seen by a lot of people who visit or view that question, which can get some targeted and quality traffic to your website.

This will also help you in the promotion of your website. Some popular Q&A sites are – Quora, Google Question Hub, Yahoo Answers, Answer.com, Ask.com, etc.

Blog Commenting Sites.

Blog Commenting is a very good option to promote any new blog because through Blog Commenting you can comment on those blogs which are relevant to your topic and when you comment on such a blog, then you easily found those who are interested in your topic.

It is very easy to do Blog Commenting, just search related to your niche on Google and visit the blogs that you find on the top, then scroll down to the comment section then comment on something related to the post, then in the website text field you can paste the URL of your blog post.

Forums are like a group chat created on any topic where people interested in that topic can ask their questions and share their experiences with each other. 

With this, you can answer those questions and while answering them you can place the URL of your blog post.

Link building means putting a link to your website in those places from where you can get a backlink for your website and your website’s ranking will improve quickly. There are many techniques for doing link building, using which you can create quality backlinks for your blog-

Search Engine Submission

After creating any website, it is most important that we give the information of that website to the search engine so that it can index our website and show our website in search results.

There are many such search engines on the Internet that most people use to search for any topic. Therefore it becomes necessary for us to submit our website to all those search engines. 

So that our website appears in the results of all those search engines and we can get traffic on our website. Some most used Search Engines are Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Yandex.

These are the most popular Search Engines which are used by almost everyone today. You have to submit your website to all these Search Engines, for which you can use their Webmaster Tools.

Pinging

Pinging tools send your website URLs to different Search Engines and Social Bookmarking Sites crawlers. That helps in fast crawling and indexing of your website.

There are many pinging tools available on the Internet, with the help of which you can ping your website and articles easily.

I personally use Pinger.com to ping URLs of all of my websites and blog, some other good pinging tools are Ping My URL, Pingomatic, etc.

Articles Submission Sites

There are many websites on the Internet that provide you with the facility to publish articles. You can give a link to your main articles by writing a demo article or a brief of an existing article that is already published on your blog.

By using Articles Submission Sites, you can create Do-Follow Backlinks for your website and these backlinks are very effective so that your website gets ranked quickly. 

Don’t Miss – What are Backlinks? And How to get Backlinks?

Some popular sites are – Blogger.com, WordPress.com, Medium.com, Tumbler.com, and many more.

Guest Posting

Guest posting means that you go to someone else’s website to publish your article. You can also say that when you write an article for someone else’s website, it is called Guest Posting.

One of the benefits of guest posting is that you can write articles on popular sites on which daily thousands of people visit.

You can also share your name and information about your website on those sites in the author box so that the visitors of that website get information about your website and also you can give a link to your website with your article. 

Blog Directory Sites

There are many Blog Directory Sites on the Internet on which you can submit your blog for free. By submitting your blog to Blog Directory Sites, you get Do-Follow Backlinks for your website.

Because Do-Follow Backlinks are very important for the website, so you should submit your website to as many Blog Directory Sites as possible, but there is another very important thing that you need to know before you submit your website to Blog Directory Sites, which is to select a category.

You need to select the correct category and add your site to related blog directory sites only. Do not add your website to every blog directory site, as it won’t benefit you and it may affect the authority of your site.

Social Bookmarking Sites

Social Bookmarking Sites are those sites where you can create backlinks by submitting articles or adding your website domain to your account’s profile section. Social bookmarking sites may also be referred to as profile creation sites.

Some most used social bookmarking sites are – StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious, Tumblr, and Akonter.

These are very popular Social Bookmarking Sites. Along with this, you will come to know about many Social Bookmarking Sites on the Internet on which you can create your account and create Do-Follow Backlinks for your website.

Here is a list of 83+ profile creation sites.

Final Words

At last, I want to say that both On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO are important for any website or blog in terms of its rankings and growth. 

But you should first focus on your articles and content quality because if you share your article or blog anywhere on the internet and it doesn’t fulfill the needs of its reader then your hard work will be totally wasted and no one will visit your blog again.

But if you write great content then when a visitor read your blog and found it helpful, he/she may share it with other needy people too, so that the authority of your blog and that article will increase and it will help you in two ways. 

First, in increasing the search engine rankings, and Second, as the visitor finds it helpful then he/she will also read the other articles on your blog and he/she will become a permanent reader of your blog.

So, do write content that helps the people and fulfills their needs.

Alright, this was a brief article on Off-Page SEO, I hope you understand what I have shared with you.

Thanks for reading and wish you all the best!
