Need help on Off Page SEO Ideas working in 2017


Hi Guys!

This is my first post in this wonderful forum. I have been brain storming about what kind of Off Page SEO activities I can do for my clients selling Software Products. Does Article Submission, Directory Submission, etc. still work? My brain is getting stuck on Social Media, Quora, Medium and Software Submission sites.

Also, what is the reliable source for the High PA Directories for submission of blogs, software etc.


Hi @geek.sidd, welcome to HBB Forum bro. :slight_smile:

I have a small question, your clients, do they have any offline presence bro? Like a physical business listing, or they sell software only via their websites online?


Thank you for your comment @pradeepkumar.
I have a mixed bag of clients bro. Few software vendors who are selling software & closing the deals by either a physical visit to the client’s office, email communication or telephonic communication with their client. But the activities start on their website which has got good traffic and we have managed to increase their ranking on target keywords by good numbers.

However, I do have a few real-estate clients as well who have a Physical Business location.


Welcome to HBB @geek.sidd ,

You can begin with few of the OFF Page activities listed below

  1. Content Marketing (Guest Blogging, PBN’s, Own Blog)
  2. Social Media (FB, TW, LN) SM plays a prominent role in SEO
  3. PR - Online Press Releases from High Authority sites
  4. Bookmarking - Stumbleupon, Digg etc.
  5. Link Building - Comments, guest post
  6. Forum Activites
  7. QA Sites like - Quora, Yahoo Answers etc
  8. Directory Submissions, Web submission and Search engine submissions.



Thanks a lot for your valuable inputs. Do Directory Submissions, Web submission and Search engine submissions still work in 2017?
