In my earlier blogging tips, I have mentioned the importance of search engine optimization(SEO) for your blog. SEO is basically of two types.
- On-page Optimization :- It is about optimizing your content pages like home-page, post page and other things using keywords, meta tags, descriptions, titles etc. All kinds of SEO which you carry out for your content comes under this type .
- Off-Page Optimization :- Off-page SEO refers to the optimization which you carry out off your website or blog like link building, forum marketing, social bookmarking etc.
Both these forms of SEO are essential for high SERPs and a lot of traffic from the search engines. Also, to earn online as a full time internet marketer, it is important that you pay attention towards off-page SEO of your blog or website. Today I will share with you some powerful methods to highly improve the off-page SEO for your blog.
- Forum Marketing :- Search engines love forums since they are the biggest place for knowledge and information sharing. Try to make Forums a big part of your link building process. Join forums similar to your niche and become an active member by taking part in discussions, giving honest reviews and sharing useful information. You can also use signature in your threads having a link back to your blog or website.
- Social Bookmarking :- Social bookmarking is one of the biggest role player in the off-page SEO for your blog. Stumbleupon and Digg are extensively used to share content all over the web and create backlinks at the same time. You must also look forward to social bookmarking your content and being active on social bookmarking sites by sharing other people’s content too.
- Search Engine and Directory Submissions :- Make sure that your website is listed on as much search engines as possible. Besides Google, Yahoo and Bing, there are other search engines and directories too which receive substantial amount of traffic. Hence do not miss out on those.
- Web 2.0 Services :- Write as much as you can on web 2.0 sites like Squidoo, Hubpages, Posterous and many more. Since these sites have a good reputation with the search engines, backlinks from these sites can really pass link juice to your website and increse your SERPs.
- Images and Videos :- These two visual forms are being widely used to grab people’s eyes and more traffic. Visitors love images and videos as they instantly give an impression of what your content is all about. Hence use them wisely wherever you can for awesome results.
There are many more left out by me since I wanted to give you only the ones which are being most successful on the internet. Do tell me what is your tactic for off-page SEO.
