SEO Essentials Techniques for 2013

By webmaster - April 19, 2013 26 Comments

Long gone are the days when all you had to do was link exchange with a handful of highly authoritative sites with the exact key phrase you were targeting, almost like magic there you were sitting pretty on top of the search engines. If you did that now, as in all of your backlinks possessing the same anchor text, your site wouldn't rank very high and you might even face the possibility of being penalized. Therefore the Offsite SEO of a site should appear as natural as possible with a large variation of anchor text backlinks. This is called Googladapting.
In my opinion SEO consists of Onsite SEO (30% of the overall score) which relates mostly to the site content, code and Meta data and Off-site SEO (70% of the overall score) which is all about the Backlinks and Social Media Promotion. Over recent month's in order to improve the Offsite SEO of a campaign and ensure high organic rankings, I have come across a list of offsite essentials for 2013 which I will share with you now:


Directory Submission 


Submitting site to online directories has always been and still remains one of the best ways to gain quality backlinks to a website. However personally I think that only the following directories are worth paying for and maybe a few specific ones in each targeted niche: Dmoz (free), Yahoo, Botw, Business, Ezilon, Goguides, Alive, Dir Journal, Skaffe, stpt, Joeant and Hotvsnot.

Social Media:

Google is becoming more and more Social conscious every day that goes by. In order to increase SEO rankings you have to increase the Social numbers and in order to do this, the following actions need to be applied:
  • Facebook, Twitter and Google+1 should be the core platforms focused on.
  • Users / Members should be invited and incentivized to Facebook / tweet about their experience with their site / product.
  • All Fans should be treated like VIP's. Events, prizes and vouchers should be offered.
  • Fan's passions (within your niche) need to be explored.
  • The fans need a quick and easy platform to engage and express their desires. Simple /closed questions should be asked.
  • Fans need to be told what to do next. 'Like this post', 'Tell us about your experience' or 'Share this with your friends' result in higher likes, comments and shares.
  • Exclusive access should be given to the fans. They liked / follow a brand mainly to get access to exclusive content, promotions and deals.
  • 'Fan of the Week' or Brand Ambassadors should be featured on Social pages
  • Active Invitations to fans for their opinions on relevant topics are needed.
  • Your brand needs to be humanized, people get excited to see a human face behind an institution, a behind the scenes. The fans should see the real people behind the company.

Guest Blog Posting

There is a large collection of blogs that are looking for guest bloggers and that will be more than happy to link to any site that you associate with. This is also a great way to form relationships within the SEO industry and we all know it's not about what you know but who you know instead.

Link Trades (Via Articles)

Link trades have always been the cornerstone of SEO. Nowadays it's preferable to trade links embedded deep within articles with anchor text that is related to the topic of the post. A blog on your site is the best way to accomplish this and it will help you boost up the internal pages / links of your site.
In conclusion, social media, directory submission and article links either through guest posts, testimonials or link trades is the way to go for SEO. So if you like the Idea of Googladaption then follow the above 2013 Off-site SEO essentials ladies and gentlemen and watch your rankings soar.

Forum Posting

This method is not only great for SEO but also great for traffic to the site and a real bonding with users. The forums you post on should be related to the topic of your site and you should always be courteous and polite despite whatever negative feedback you may receive. Do not ever have a heated discussion online with any negative users.

Testimonials

Test products, tools and services either related to SEO or your niche and write a review. If it is a positive review send it over to the owner of these products or provider of these services and ask them to put it live on their site along with a link back to your site.
