Give Your Website a Boost With Exceptional Off-Site SEO

One of the best ways to increase your sales and services is by having a website set up based entirely on it. Apart from offline businesses that are now focusing on the online market, there are plenty of young entrepreneurs who are completely focused online. For them ranking high on the search engines is of utmost importance.

But, there are plenty of companies that are using the internet to post their services and sell their goods and therefore, for you to enter an already booming market could be a really hard challenge. As we all know, when a person searches for something online they’re usually just going to check out the first page results and therefore, your main goal would be to rank as high as possible.

However, if at all you want to achieve this, you would need to make sure that the Off-site SEO techniques that you adopt are the best. But, for this to work, your on-site SEO needs to be really good as well.

What is Offsite SEO?

Basically, off site SEO is focusing on higher traffic through higher rankings.Quality backlinks are the best way to do this and whenever you focus on this aspect, you would need to make sure that you’re using the best techniques; else all your attempts will be futile and may have negative effects due to the Penguin updates.

Backlinks are one of the best ways to get you traffic as well as a boost in the SERP’s. There are plenty of ways as to how you could gain backlinks and some of them include: Social bookmarking, blogs, comments, guest posting, article submission and the most important of them all – Organic backlinks!

Whenever search engines decide where you need to rank on their pages, they consider the number of backlinks as well as the quality of the links. The better the sites PR, the higher the link counts. Therefore, getting quality backlinks is surely the best way to ensure that you’re getting a good boost on the rankings.

But, not all links sent back to your website help you with your ranking. There are plenty of times wherein site owners wish to add a rel-no follow tag in the HTML coding and these links are known as no-follow links.

Such links are mainly used on the comments section and at times even in the text as the owners of these particular sites don’t wish to let the search engines know that you’re site is good. By using this tag, they tell the search engines that they’re not raising your credibility.

Benefit of No-follow links

Even though they may not give you link juice, these links are really important if you want to increase your traffic from related websites. Hence, you shouldn’t worry if you’re getting a no-follow link as long as the site linking to you has high traffic which belongs to your niche.

    To me, backlinking is quite a common off-site SEO practice and nothing really exceptional. So, the question is how and where to find the high pageranks site/blogs to plant the backlinks.

    Having said that, it is good to have a different view of no-follow link, the positive side of it.

    Thanks for sharing, anyway.

    there really is two sides to the rel no-follow coin, i’m still on the fence when it comes to this debate, should you or shouldn’t you add it?
    Whichever you choose will tell in the long run i guess!

    Great article for those new to the subject! :)

    One thing we found important lately is having the correct percentage of anchor tags for inbound link.s Google is definitely penalizing for over-optimization. This is definitely something you want to watch and monitor.

    I don’t worry whether a link is no-follow or do-follow, just because a link is no-follow does not mean it doesn’t count towards your rankings it just means that the linking site does not vouch for the site. Anchor text diversity is really something that needs to advised to anyone doing link building, if you over optimise your anchor text you may very well end up getting penalised.

    I count off-page seo a bit more advanced then an on-page. On-page is a must for any one to make sure the website had a good browsing abilities, but off-page has bigger powers.
