. Google interprets social-bookmarking links to be natural backlinks to your website and use them to give your site a better rank. This is further facilitated as the accompanying descriptive text usually contains vital keywords that are simultaneously indexed.
Blog and Forum Submissions
An interactive blog can be a major attraction for users to make repeat visits to your site; with this, it is possible to develop a healthy relationship of trust and credibility. However, the content quality must be very high and the blog written in such a way that it delivers value to the user. When you publish high-quality blog posts on sites that have very high authority, much of that authority also passes on to you and you get exposure to a wider audience who are likely to visit your website due to the backlinks embedded in your post. A blog post that is well written serves to inform readers about issues that are important to them and also acts as a platform for promoting your own products. Similarly, you can use forum submissions to engage with customers, build authority, and drive traffic to your website.
Rather than limiting your SEO initiatives to just on-page activities, you should maximize the gain with effective off-page SEO. In an environment where users are looking at various sources of information in addition to search engines, this strategy can be very useful in driving more website traffic.
