Search Engine Submission

you can submit your site to Search Engines like, Google, Yahoo, Bing, MSN, etc. to speed up the indexing of your site. Search Engines will find your site automatically. but you can submit it manually. you can check the Indexing of your Site by Typing in the Google search box. if there is nothing to show then you can submit it. otherwise, you have no need.

Directory Submissions

Submit your site in Directories like Dmoz (now Closed), etc. to improve indexing, and get links for your site. choose directories and categories according to your niche for better results. no need to submit your site in each & every directory. submit your site in only High PR & High-Quality Directories.

Some directories offer reciprocal links & paid Services. but I give you a suggestion that there is no need to give money to submit your site & make reciprocal links.

RSS Directory Submissions

Submit your Sites in the RSS Submission directory Sites to get more traffic. Always choose High-quality directories to submit your Site.

Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking is another method to get more traffic to your site. Submit your posts on Social bookmarking sites like Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, etc. be careful about following instructions to submission while submitting your post or pages on these sites.

Forum Posting

Join Discussion Forums/Communities that are related to your niche. You can ask questions, join discussions, and give replies to other’s questions. you can give the link of your post which is related to the question or discussion to get a link.

forum posting helps you to grow your audience, and make links.

Article Submissions

Buy or Write some articles and submit them to article submission sites. this will help you to grow traffic & get deep links.

Link Baiting

Link baiting means if you have used someone other’s content in your post then give the link to that site or page for reference. it will help you to increase link popularity.

Photo Sharing

If you made your own images for your content then you can share them on photo-sharing sites Like as, Flickr, photo bucket etc. people see them & come to your site. but if someone uses them in his post by referencing you then you will get a link.

Video Marketing

Make videos about your niche topics, tutorials, etc. Use these videos in your content and publish or share them on video sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc. it will help you to get more traffic & rank higher in Google.

Business Listing

Submit your Business details & site to Google My Business to show on the front page of Google when someone is searching for you on Google.

Local Listing

Submit your site to Google Local, Yahoo Local, and Yellow Pages to increase your business visibility in the local region. This will help you to get a higher position in Google search & to get more targeted traffic.

Business Reviews

Ask your clients to give reviews on popular business review sites like RateItAll, etc. about your business.

Classified Submission

Give free Ads on popular classified sites like as, myspace, olx etc. about your business or products/services.

Document Sharing

Share your PDF files and infographics on document-sharing sites. it will help you to grow traffic & get links.

Social Shopping Networks

If you have an E-commerce Store or site, then you can do free branding of your products. Submit your products to Google product search, yahoo online shopping, etc.

Q & A

Give answers to other’s Questions in Yahoo answers etc. You can place your link with your reply. it will help you to increase traffic.

Ad Campaign

    1. Harpreet Munjal

      Hello @Janaki
      Glad you like this Off page SEO techniques…

      30-35 Directories are enough to submission in one day. directories have very less impact on SEO. so it is better at the beginning of your site. but then keep the focus on good Content & High-Quality Links for your site… you have no need to do only submissions. focus on high-quality natural links to rank higher in Google and other search engines…

  3. Hi Harpreet,
    Great article for them who are not aware of Off-page optimization. Just I wanted to know in ‘Link Baiting’ how many links I can include in my article? How much is accepted by search engines?

    1. Harpreet Munjal

      Hello @Guruprasad
      you can add as much you want…..
      but, write content for people not for search engines. give link to other sites where you are using their content or reference….
      to much external link can distract your visitors also. so see the requirements of your content….
