    My mum owns a company which can only really be described as a virtual secretarial company. She has had good success locally in our area, however, as a sort of "present" to her, I want to try and broaden her horisons and hopefully get her far more business.

    Could people give me advice on how I could raise her Google Rankings and generally bring in more business for her.

    There are no AdSense or similar things on the site (IE, no really strict rules to abide by)

    If by your mother, you mean you, and by giving her a present, you mean us spoonfeeding you, then no. Nobody will help you. You have 1 post. No contributions. -Reputation. Why would someone want to help?

    haha, I genuinely mean my mother :p Being a secretary isn't exactly one of my aspirations it must be said.

    Well, I have 1 post because I signed up today

    and I want to give her a present because she's helped me out a lot lately

    I've been looking at some of the backlink offerings in the marketplace.

    I've not got a massive understanding of Black Hat SEO if i'm honest. My general understanding is, its a slightly frowned upon but faster method of SEO, correct?

    Since you joined today, I think You should first read, there are a lot of threads about SEO here in the forum---> And there is a search option on top left of this page.
    And most importantly you take action after reading.

    If this is your mothers livelihood, I would be careful with what you buy. There are packages and services that can make your site go down. If you want to give her a present, do some local marketing.

    I'd make sure it's got decent, keyword rich content by the bucketload. Then get some nice deep backlinks with a variety of anchor tags.

    I think it's not advisable to do any completely BH techniques at the moment until we know more about what's going to happen with this update.
    Having said that though, doing pretty much anything to increase your ranking is against Google's TOS... lol.

    Thank you :) Don't understand how I could have gotten 8 negatives in the space of 2 hours or so haha

    What is everyone's view on purchasing backlinks as a starting point?

    I cant explain the negative rep but I can tell you that you are getting a bit of heat because your question is incredibly broad and no one could help you without spending a lot of time going through it with you. If you spent a bit of time educating yourself and came back with more focused questions you would get a better response.

    Virtual secretary is going to be really hard to rank for but as we are talking about Moms business I presume she is not trying to go Global

    Try to narrow down to actual area or town is better that you are trying to rank for and make sure your on page seo is good for that particular search term. Thats where I would start.

    Why don't you set up some sort of PPC campaign. Results are almost instant. Google is always giving out $100 to $200 credits when you spend $50 all the time.
