Where Is Your Website?

People go to great lengths to try and learn their own version of “SEO” in order to market their online presence. Many hours are spent trying to capture traffic but you cannot succeed stuck behind a desk trying to understand the strategies of search engine optimization.

There are many factors that effect a website. Usually most start with “On Page” factors to make a site successful. But they often forget that it is “Off Page” factors that give them the ability to move the website in the rankings for the potential online sale they’re striving for.

What are “Off Page” factors? Whether you heard of the term “Off Page” factors or not, the concepts are anything but new.

"Off Page" factors are the areas that you don’t think about because most people concentrate on the “On Page” factors to get better the visibility for a website. But with the “Off Page” factors, you monitor the website linking on the search engines for chances of reaching your online goals. Google, for one, considers “popularity” important and really considers how your site is relating to other sites already established in the search engines.

Another factor is the “Age of the Domain”. Usually Google does not index a site until it is 6 months old, but other leading engines such as Yahoo and MSN will index a site the moment it goes live. If you want instant visibility from Google, then you may want to invest in a pay-per-click advertisement. Once a site has been indexed, it is important at this stage to not change the domain -- unless you want to start over.

These days, Google is constantly changing its algorithms for site indexing. So, “Off Page” factors are starting to receive greater significance to Google.
