Off-Page Optimization

And to make a website popular, the site has to attract votes in terms of links from other existing websites. And this is the most important part of SEO. Just making a site relevant will not do. There has to be links pointing to it.

Link structure can be of variety of types like

Reciprocal Links
One-way backlinks
3-way back linking & other complex structures

And the linking should be done with a keyword rich link text or anchor text. Using proper anchor text increases the value of links a many fold. But variation  of anchor texts is very much needed in order to avoid raising red flags in G’s control room.

Links can be built many a ways.

By directly requesting to webmasters for  backlinks
Web directory submissions (If and only if the quality metric allows)
Article directory submissions (Obsolete in 2016 and beyond)
links from web 2.0 sites. (Yes we use it but with a special twist to it)
Forum signature links (Not for SEO benefit)
Blog directory submissions (Only if blog is integrated to our existing client website. Quality of the directory is assessed before submission)
RSS directory submission (RSS or really simple syndication technology will be a thing of the past very soon, so we don’t depend to much on it)
Commenting on Blogs (Commenting on blogs seems to be an easy thing to do but only high authority blogs are chosen and relevant contributing comments are made to ensure the comment is published. Avoid easy links like plague)
Other link building strategies (Can’t afford to reveal publicly. As you might be knowing that SEO or digital marketing as a whole is completely a knowledge driven business.

It is about optimizing websites to attract traffic from social Media like Facebook, Twitter, Linked in etc.

Social Bookmarking:

This is about posting existing  blog posts or writing content in social bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, Reddit, Linked in etc. It does not help much in hiking the position on SERP but it gets traffic for the site.
