Why Off-Page SEO Matters

Despite these changes, off-page SEO is critical in a page's ability to rank. ‚ÄčIt's like going to a restaurant that a friend suggested. You gauge how much you trust your friend and take into account various reviews of the restaurant before trying it yourself. If your friend liked it, but the reviews are negative, you're less likely to go. In the event your friend disliked the restaurant, but the reviews are positive, you could think your friend could of had a bad experience.

In the case of your website pages, people, and sites linking to your site are like your friends telling you about the restaurant. Judging by these links, the relevance of the page the link is coming from, and the trustworthiness, your website may or may not be considered for search engine results.
