SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a set of techniques used by web marketers to increase the search engine rankings of a website for achieving internet home business success. The aim is to get the web pages reach the number 1 spot on Google for a selection of keywords.

Off-page SEO includes all the factors that determine the popularity of a web page in the search engines. It includes the creation of back links to a website, a practice often termed as increasing “link popularity” of a web site.

Link popularity is the most important metric used by the most popular search engines. In order for SEO, to be useful, web pages need to provide good educational content to web surfers. When the content is good, it takes lesser effort to acquire back links to the website.

All search engines put a lot of emphasis on a website’s “link popularity”. Search engines take into account the number of incoming and outgoing links to a website in order to determine the search engine rankings of a website for certain keywords or key phrases. Remember that incoming links are more significant than outgoing links.

Google, one of the top search engines in the world, uses Page Rank technology to determine the link popularity of a website. When you install the “Google toolbar”, you can easily see a web page’s PageRank. The PR of a web page is from 0 to 10. When there is a grey PR bar for a particular web page, it means that the web page in question has either not been indexed or it has been dropped from the index. In some cases, it can also mean that the website has been banned by Google.

Acquiring quality links incoming from well established or reputable websites can be a difficult undertaking. A reputable website will agree to link out to your website only if you can provide them with certain benefits and if your website has good content that complements the content of the website in question.
