    Same ones that worked in 2019.

    Citations, referrals, reviews, trust marks.

    No! These techniques haven’t worked in years. But for some reason SEO companies in Asia still persist in doing them.

    Off-Page SEO Technique is a type of White Hat SEO. It is a very important part of generating backlinks. Some of the working SEO techniques are as follows:

    · Infographic Submission

    · Commenting on niche related blogs

    · Guest Blogging

    · Promotional Video creating and Submission

    · Question and answer sites

    Why do you keep posting? Everything you post is wrong.

    It's fine for people to suggest authorative links etc - but you need to find the same sites all of your competitors use (and even better sites that they dont know about). Then remove all the crappy spammy links, then check these links for things like penalty risk, links on the page already in place - and countless others.
    There is little point getting a link from a page that already has 100+ other links on it or from a page that has links to spammy sites etc. Sounds easy enough right ?

    Back in the real world you could spend weeks trying to filter all this information. You need tools to do this for you. Or if you happen to know the editor of a popular online forum / blog site or the BBC etc - then they may link to your site and tag it around some useful relevant text.

    Obviously though most forum / blog owners wouldnt normally do this - unless they owed you a favour or your Dad was the DG of bbc online

    The most efficient way for off page SEO strategy is through outreaching. There are multiple outreaching techniques are used in which sky scrapper, broken link building, infographics, link magnets, guest posting are the most conversion oriented.

    No it’s not. Google can spot these links a mile away and will ignore them.

    If we keep the factor of naturality, power, relevancy, and anchor text in mind. The outreaching campaign can go to next level

    Nope. Google knows exactly what you are doing and will just ignore the links. Guest posting used to work but because everyone is not using it for SEO it's almost worthless. Same with infographics and the other techniques you mention.

    A good few years ago, the BBC had a forum that you could discuss various TV episodes, and if you could get a link on there without being noticed it was gold dust - they were no follow. But you could easily get your link removed and banned if spotted by moderators. The threads auto closed after 28 days of the episode, so the trick was to get one that was inactive so not being moderated and just about to close.

    We got one, with a comment 'Merry xmas from the ppc agency' ppc agency being the anchor. We rode at P1 UK for ppc agency for about 18 months from that single link. If only it were so easy today.

    Some backlinks matter. The rest are garbage.

    I remember back in the early days of Opera there was a community called MyOpera
    You had your own section, similar to a blog

    The homepage listed 20 users pages (and linked to them)
    if you could work out how many spaces to include before your username you would always appear at the top of the A-Z list and therefore appear on a lot of pages (with links back to your page)

    The homepage also displayed recent posts, you could almost work out to the 1/2 hour what time Google crawled the page and quite often get your post on there at the right time

    The MyOpera homepage was PR9 back then, you could get your page within the site to PR7 and then just drop a few links to your own sites.

    The key of course was not to abuse it (apart from username and timing of posts) make sensible posts, be part of the community and it really was like Gold Dust

    All the off-page activities still matter like social bookmarking, classifieds. Image sharing, PPT Submission, Video sharing but keep in mind one thing that content always should be unique and relevant every day.

    There seem to be some golden oldies commenting here so I'll add mine.
    Back in the day you might remember 'reciprocal links' were the rage. Quantity not quality. My fondest memory is of exchanging links with a Baptist Church in Minnesota who tried to sell me a T-Shirt. Happy days!

    100%.

    There are so many busy fools chasing around after link after link after link....

    You can rank a well-made and well-targeted site very, very well with hardly any links at all. You can then go off and do other, more fun stuff while the sales roll in.
