Offsite activities are nothing building more of backlinks for the website to gain rankings as well as traffic for the website. If it is a new website, it is always advisable to build limited backlinks to avoid from the radar of Google updates. I have explored more of different backlinking activity and have come up with below mentioned techniques that really worked for my gambling and other category of clients:
Top 10 SEO offsite techniques that you gain backlinks for your website in 2016
1) Guest Blogging: This activity is considered as one of the top ones among the 10 of the techniques that really helped to gain rankings in the short period of time. To do this activity, you need to use tools like Ahrefs or Majestic SEO to download the backlinks of your competitors, once the list is ready, it is more important to have DA(domain authority) and PA(Page Authority) for each of the backlink website to understand quality, based on which we can have final list of backlinks data.
Next step is to approach the webmasters of backlink websites through contact us form or else shoot an email directly to them using the email id mentioned in the contact us page. Most of the top quality websites will have high DA and PA, so for having the link in those websites is not for free certainly you have to buy link from them by paying the deal amount that you had agreed with them.
