Free Access: Get more views for your website by pumping up off-page SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is like the weather in Augusta – it is always changing. From hailstorms in the morning to sunny skies in the afternoon, it’s hard to keep up with what to wear, how to plan, and what to think.

SEO is a lot like this.

SEO has been around for more than 20 years and has changed, it seems, almost daily during that time. The impact on your website’s online visibility and your business results can be monumental.

With so many types of SEO, it’s hard to know where to start.

There are a few methods that can help improve your website ranking regarding SEO. We will briefly discuss a few of them below, before moving on to today’s topic.

You’ve almost certainly heard of on-page SEO. This is really about what a visitor sees when they visit your website, including everything from web page loading speed to mobile-friendliness to relevant content and so much more.

You’ve likely heard of local SEO. It’s a great way to get your business to stand out more in local search results on Google. By optimizing your website for local search, you can help your business attract more customers and compete against your competitors online.

Off-page SEO encompasses a variety of activities with the goal of promoting your website on external platforms and sources. This can include things like link-building and creating valuable content to post on social media and other websites. If done correctly, off-page SEO can be a great way to improve your website’s visibility and traffic.

One great way to improve your SEO is to get your business listed on other websites and directories. This can help ensure your information is accurate and up-to-date, plus increase your online visibility and reach.

When your business listings are accurate and consistent across the web, Google and other search engines may give you a higher ranking. If this isn’t the case for your business, Google’s algorithm may penalize you.
