Hello everyone Andrew Houglum here with Direct Business Marketing talking with you today about the importance of using off-page search engine optimization tools. Today we are going to talk about a couple of off-page SEO pages that can be a great form of advertising for your business. When I use the term off-page I am referring to something that is not on your actual website but other directory or specialized websites.
There are numerous places to find your business throughout the internet using off-page SEO but today I wanted to focus on a couple that I find work the best for a business. The first one is Google Places and it can be found easily by searching for your business on Google Maps. Once you have located your business on Google Maps you can claim that location on their map in order to control the data and information that is associated with it. The next option is a website called Yelp. Stop by Yelp.com to claim your business or create a profile for your business if one does not already exist. Yelp is a website used by consumers to post pictures and reviews of your business so keeping your information accurate is very important. When using both Google Places and Yelp it is important to encourage your happy customers to post comments and reviews to boost your business profile.
These are just two of the many off-page SEO options you can find online that can be a great asset if your information is up to date and accurate.
