Hello everyone,

I am hoping to gain insight into off-site SEO practices. I am creating a digital marketing blog for a college course, and while I am able to apply these 'best' practices to a local business, I am having a hard time finding valuable backlinks for this type of website..

Basically, my blog contains 5 main blog posts about 'hot' topics in digital marketing- I have create social sites, social bookmarking, and one high authority backlink.

Here's my website: hjwilliamson.com

If you have any suggestions or comments on my blogs I greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!
Hjwill

    this is not an SEO comment, but I think all that info on the home page about yourself may be counterproductive (even though it contains a nice photo of yourself). You could put the same info on an About Page. The personal angle might work for a fashion site, but not for an SEO site.

    The real meat of your blog (and you have some catchy titles) should be on your home page.

    Just my opinion.

    I would also create a few more posts including a 2000 word post

    I don't understand. Is this for a school project, or you're getting paid to make a website for this college that is trying to sell this particular course.

      This is for a class. "Student ranking project". Our grade depends on how well we are ranked for certain keywords.

        SO I have to ask.. who picked the words? and are every ones words the same? I hope for your sake Jason M. is not someone you are competing with? youtube .com /watch?v=s3yq9V8VI1Y at the moment he has you beat.

        There are without questions ways you can get there. First off you need to create a video yesterday.. maybe not even a video.. but video's. looking at the site from the owner of the video above onsite SEO will be a game changer for you. Find all of your fellow students blogs and comment on each of their articles... be sure to deactivate commenting on your site.

        Here is the trick.... ensure you have a publisher profile set up on your site. Ensure when leaving a comment you use the exact same name as the the publisher profile / site owner. Link contextual match content on your site from that in which you are commenting on. link an onsite seo page on your site, from their site.

        Just because you are supposed to rank for "offsite SEO" does NOT mean you can not use ONSITE SEO to do so. its all really weak in the examples I was able to find online with same types of articles.

        Ensure that your facebook and twitter profile have a link to your site. after that stop using Social.. the profile is the only benefit.

        Best of luck

    Because you can.. your a student there.. I would be seeking out University blogs that you can post and link from. I am thinking U of M.. Michigan Ross right? I am sure there are blogs associated there you could get links from. For that matter.. trade with fellow students, if their assignments are the same ( build a site )
