Off Page SEO: simple definition

Off page SEO or off page optimization is the process aimed at improving a site’s search engine ranking, where the efforts are made outside of the website.

It needs to be understood that the Google algorithm considers a business’s whole web presence to rank the website. According to First Page Sage, a key off-line seo practice called backlinks is responsible for 16% of Google ranking factors.

The ranking status of those websites that refer to your website, and the context of the reference are important. In fact, off page seo is almost the digital version of word-of-mouth marketing.

Google assesses link juice by considering backlinks. Clearly link-building is a crucial, but not the sole, element of off page SEO strategy.
