    2.  Commenting:

There are several reasons to continue posting on blogs, as long as you do so respectfully and with the appropriate audience. It will assist you in developing a rapport with the blog owner and other commenters.

   3. Forum Discussion:

Try to find a forum that is related to your product and service and build a connection with that community. Give a reply to queries, solve problems of others, give your advice and suggestions because Google loves discussions!

Make your entire profile, as well as an anchor in your signature, so that your signature appears alongside your anchor whenever you comment. Look for forums that have do-follow connections.

4. Influencer outreach:

An easy idea to do influencer outreach is to find someone influential in your niche who already has a loyal audience base that trusts his/her knowledge or viewpoint. You should try to build a professional relationship with such personalities. 

Reaching out to influencers and convincing them to agree to advocate for you may take some time. However, if you do it properly, it can ultimately give your brand entrance to a large number of people who are interested in listening to a voice they trust. When they hear your message from this influencer, they may be convinced to trust in your message and your brand as well.

5. Guest Author:

Many blogs allow guest posts. You just need to type the keyword you’re interested in and then search on Google in this way:

  • Keyword + “write for us”
  • Keyword + “become a contributor”
  • Keyword + “contribute”
  • Keyword + “guest blogging”

Guest posting is an excellent way to build brand awareness because the content you post on other sites will ultimately aware new audiences about your website.

Those new readers may visit your site or landing page, which means guest blogging helps you captivate new subscribers and ameliorate lead generation.

6. Broken link building:

Broken link building is an interesting and effective strategy. At first, find broken links and then inform the owner of the site that has a broken link. You can check broken links through the google search console or there are several other ways. It could be a broken link on one of your own sites, which you would then update, or an obsolete competitor’s link, which you would then offer to substitute with one of your links to similar material. As a result, the number of redirects and 404 pages would be decreased, resulting in a better user experience.

7. Social Networking:

Nowadays people surf the internet more times than they used to do a few years ago as founded by researchers. A good off-page SEO strategy will ultimately grab and leverage your social network and escalate the reach of your content.

By sharing content on social networking sites will help the content get clicks from multiple IPs. It will then appear more trustworthy and will send a signal to Google that multiple visitors around the globe are visiting the content.

8. Social Bookmarking:

Social bookmarking involves the process of tagging a website page with a browser-based tool so that you can easily visit it again later without searching the page. So you can use it in lieu of saving social media posts to your browser bookmarks. You can use different platforms’ properties to bookmark posts. Because the bookmarks are online, you’ll be able to avail them anywhere, from any device with an internet connection.

9. Content Marketing:

Every social media platform has its own type of preferred content. Instagram is popular for images, YouTube for videos, Facebook and Twitter for expressing your thoughts, ideas, and ideology. Most of the time, we share content on Facebook and Twitter that can be neglected on YouTube and Instagram. 

In this way, visitors from Google will find your content piece, YouTube searchers will get the video, Instagram users will find the images. Always try to create the content piece with your audience and resource in mind, and take advantage of the spur different types of content can get from different social networks.

10. Questions and answers:

Writing great content and distributing it to the right people can be one of the most effective ways to establish your authority on sites like Stack Overflow, Quora, and Yahoo Answers. Choose a forum with a high level of authority and relevance, scan for your niche and related questions, and respond in a way that adds value to the issue.

If you’ve written a guide on the same topic, provide a link to your website so visitors can easily find it. Take care with the connections so they don’t appear to be spam. This technique, if executed correctly, has the potential to be a game-changer in terms of off-page SEO.

11. Newsletters:

A newsletter is a low-cost way to communicate with your audience. Plan your newsletter, featuring newly published content from your blog as well as some exclusive, newsletter-only content. In general, keep your newsletters short but packed with useful and interesting material. They should also be simple to consume.

Then, send the newsletter according to your audience’s local time zone. Your subscribers are more likely to read your newsletters and trust the content you send them if you provide them with value, tips, and timely and useful information. Avoid sending too many newsletters; otherwise, you’ll irritate your subscribers and lose subscribers by bothering them.
