    One of my clients does a little bit of public work for them, the post would have verifiable images and a smallish write up, not of my clients business activity, but of my clients involvement with the charity.
    I've told the client and quote that we need to build a separate post type away from his core business, write about the activity he did for this chairty, highlighting their brand, and making sure the content matched to the charity website and allow them to link to this post, the footer links can absorb the power of their backlink to give his business a boost.

    Any better suggestion, remember this is genuine business and I don't want to get caught on spam filter cause the charity is completely unrelate to the client business. It is this far apart for example

    charity local community for help kids with problems (so it's powerful site got gov links)
    business is pizza shop.

    To add to this i am quite happy to no follow this link

    It's a legit link. And only one for that matter. What spam filters are you talking about? Pretty sure those were meant for spam and won't hurt legit links. You're overthinking this.

    when I say spam filter I'll rephrase, I want the client to get value from the link if he's going to take the link. Just because it's a legit link doesn't mean google will find it to be so?

    polka dot shorts homepage saying we work with green golfing is worthless.

    Can you improve on my method posted above to take the link and get value?

    I don't see a problem with what you want to do, IMO it would be good if their post talked about your client's business a little bit as well though. Also, keep in mind that the charity's domain is likely to grow stronger with time as they receive legit links, adding more value to the link your client will have.

    this is true and I agree about follwoing up the clients biz activity a bit, need to get inventive cause right now i can't see how to structure it:

    polka dot shorts, who sell shorts, repair them, and fit new zips, help kids from needy back grounds. Actually that's a terrible example, i'd write about the free clothes repairs for poor kids haha :)

    Unfortunately there is no contextual link at all like that at all that I see right now, needs a good think thanks for your response.

    You are worrying too much on this.

    I have hundreds of links like this and all are great. The only thing you have to worry about is if the charity gives out a lot of links or has links to sites the shader part of the web. 99.9% there is never anything to worry about when getting links from a charity related site.

    Thanks for your comments, your niche must be considerably larger than this, fifty high quality links like this would see most keywords taken down so links really need to be solid to avoid suspicion - I mean there is some spammers but they'll be gone, it's just when, and of course the charity backlink profile is in order ;). Thanks for your input.

    Although there is NOTHING wrong with your strategy, I suggest you work on the relevance factor. It is one way of making sure you get the most value from the link.

    50 is not a lot if you have 12k backlinks. 50 is a lot if you have 100 backlinks, so yes it is relative to size.

    Google's Algorithm really is about balance. Most all established US companies do some form of charity work, so it's very natural to get links from the charty they help out. It just natural marketing and Google is ok with it.
