The major thing implied by Off-Page Optimization is backlinking. You should put as much as backlinks as possible. First of all you must see whether or not there is any nofollow code on the site where you are putting your backlink. To see nofollow you must right click and go to “view page source” option and search for the word “nofollow”. If the code is there your link shall not give you any benefit regarding page rank (PR) otherwise that link is very useful for you. And one such link may earn you PR to give good impression to google about your site.
Note: remember wherever you are putting the link to your site the words of the link must be the keyword of the page to which it is linked to. The text of the link is called anchor link therefore anchor link must be the keyword of your page which you are back linking.
There are many sites on which you can make blogs, like; blogger.com, flixya.com, blog.com, wordpress.com, blog.co.uk and tumble.com etc. Open those sites and signup there to make free blog. The formula for backlinkingis to backlink on the sites, blogs or forums that are relevant to the contents of your site. Otherwise your backlink shall not be fruitful. Therefore your blog too must me relevant to your site. Wherever you give link on the blog must be the keyword of the page to which it is linked to. There are other good blogs with good PR you better search them and if there is no “nofollow” code put your link in the comment section. This you can do my mentioning your site as the site field is there which is not compulsory to be filled in. Otherwise your signature can be linked with anchor text of the keyword of your page.
Forums are such platforms on the net where people post their problems and they are resolved by the other members of the forum. Try to join as many forums related to your site as possible and see the nature of questions and by answering suggest them your site too with the anchor link of the keyword of the page you want them to visit.
