Off-Page SEO is an outside activity of the website to upgrade your ranking within the search result pages. Let’s bring in the same analogy of being a hotel owner to understand it easily. As a hotel owner, you can’t run your business by just doing the interiors. Suppose your hotel is very comfortable but lies in the middle of a huge forest and there is no connectivity with the nearby highway. Do you think your hotel will get business? Yes, it will only get business if any guest is ready to trek to your hotel. The same goes for websites. You need to serve the customers with external information. Build a community to establish your services & offers. For example, location, routes and advertising. Be a brand among customers by doing publicity. This is said to be Off-Page SEO. Let’s go through Off-Page SEO activities.
Link Building: It helps in building the credibility of the website by acquiring “hyperlink” to your website on another website. Here the website grabs another website source through a link, this strengthens your content information as well as the service.
Social Media: People today, focus more on Social Media. So make your social networks live for your website. One of the major roles of Off-Page SEO is to promote your website to the next level. Multiple clicks on your content will increase your level of visitors.
