Im just looking for some advice on backlinking to a business site.

My friends boss has asked me to take a look at his business site and see if i could help his rankings in the search engines. The site was professionally designed about 8 years ago but it is not SEO'd in any way. The URL is the name of the company but has no proper keywords with in it.

If im to try and backlink this site im going to be backlinking for words thats not really mentioned in the site. The site also is not a wordpress site it seems to be a flash html site.

What im asking is do i just go ahead and backlink to the site in the normal way or am i wasting my time. I know that he would need to change the site and seo it properly but he does not want to change it and i dont have the time to make him a new site for free.

Any advice would help.

    Good luck with that. Why would Google rank a site for anchor text which wasn't even on the site. Seems like it's only possible with massive volume or a completely non competitive niche.

    With a Flash site in a competitive niche the best you could hope for is to focus on Local Search and sneaking in some keyword rich text in the most appropriate places.

    Google is what it is and they are not going to change the rules to make it easier.

    That's one project I would only do onsite SEO and local on... too much effort for too little reward.

    Thanks, thats exactly what i was thinking. I just wanted to hear it from someone that knows. It is in a local search and theres not a lot of competition for the words but the other competing sites are slightly optimised but not overly so. An example is that the tenth site on google page 1 has only 78 incoming backlinks. This is on a local search so its not alot but the site doesnt help itself.
    Im actually sorry i said i look at it for them.

      By the sounds of it he's better off getting extra traffic to his site from other websites such as high ranking blogs in a similar niche or just using paid advertising cos he's clearly unwilling to change it to please the mighty G.

    Normally I wouldn't bother but you can rank an internal page for him. Create a single internal page, make sure it's optimized for your keyword, upload it, make sure it links to his homepage and do your backlinking to that page. Not optimal but with so little competition shouldn't take much to get it first page.

    I would highly suggest you to convince him to redo the site.

    The first time he mentioned flash I would be history (everything about flash blows)!

    I think serch engines don't like flash, if you don't change it, that will be difficult to improve the rankings

    Thanks for the advice. I'll chat to him and see if he will change his mind about changing the site. I think he was hoping to get this done for free which im not willing to do.
    Thanks again.

    Hello Friends,

    You can never have too many of these one way connections to your home business page, so here are 5 very powerful techniques you can employ to multiply these potential customer traffic portals:

    1. If you enjoy writing, then articles are a great method to use to increase the number of websites linking to your home page. This technique has a dual impact on your site because not only does it increase traffic but fresh content updated or added on a regular basis also attracts the search engines and helps improve your ranking.

    After writing your editorials and posting them on your website you then approach the major article directories online and they publish your writing on their website. Of course, you add your backlink to your biography box and when someone reads your article and would like more information they click on your link to visit your site.

    2. Link exchanges between webmasters are another very effective tactic to increase your backlinks. By agreeing to post another website's URL on your home page they reciprocate and add your address to their site. You can approach as many related home businesses as you want to add more backlinks to your web page and you can create a special page to accommodate and to display these addresses.

    3. Ask other related enterprises on the web to give away your free stuff and in exchange they link to your website. These webmasters may want to give away a free product from your home page or you may have a product you're giving away that they would like to have on their site, so they will agree to this arrangement.

    4. Participating in online forums and chat rooms is another tactic you can use to multiply your links. Visit forums related to your website theme and leave comments or get involved in discussions and try to provide solutions to any problems people may be having with their online venture. When you leave your link in your signature file you're providing another path to your home business.

    5. Visit some of the free classified ad websites on the Internet and place an advertisement for your product with your backlink included. People who are interested in your offer will click on your ad and visit your home page.

    Thanks
