    So,

    I have somebody who is creating website now, is a funeral home. As i can see there are many sites like that but you can't get a backlink from them so how do you rank such a niche, or anyoane has any site in this niche?

    Well try local SEO, I doubt he offers international or nation-wide services... Also I doubt you'll rank well just by asking similar sites to place your link. You need a wide range of links, social signals, web 2.0s, PBNs, contextual links, maybe some outreach, authority links, etc. That's the general idea of running a successful SEO campaign. Monitor your competition and see what sort of link profile they got. Of course don't forget about quality on-page. I doubt the funeral home niche is that competitive, so it shouldn't be too difficult to rank.

    Maybe find a few users who offer citation services so you can rank higher locally?

    OP, it doesn't matter it is a funeral home. You need to ask how to rank a local business. This is no different than ranking a real estate agent in Seattle. Look up some local SEO guides and get to work, nobody wrote a "SEO For Funeral Homes 2017" guide.

    Really?
    You said that?
    Outstanding!

    @lorentzo - it is local SEO... do local SEO for the site after you make sure the onsite is good.

    At the same time, since it is a local business, build up his social media accounts as well.

    I do not think that posting the latest casket on IG is a good idea but there are probably a dozen ways to build up the social media accounts and make him famous there. On FB you could give out weekly tips on how to prepare for death in terms of finances, emotions, insurance ets.

    On IG you may be able to post pics of flowers and positive quotes.

    You can share his business in local FB groups, local online classifieds and even in forums if they have something appropriate in that area.

    Check for stiff competition.
    Find out what they are doing and step it up.
    Once you get a head embalm it.
