What Is The Best Link To Use

    Hi, i have designed and developed close to 100 websites now and i am trying to find out what is the best link to add at the bottom of each of my clients site, suc as "Design & Developed by Company Name"

    I have seen a lot of web development companies add seo keywords to their clients sites and then link to their web development company site, such as "SEO & Web Design Ireland" and then link this to the web development company site.

    What in your view is the best method to utilise on your clients, thanks in advance...

    It's a balancing act really, you want the good link text but dont make your clients site look odd by doing it. Your customers are more important than search engines in that they have actually given you money, they can tell other website owners about you, provide you with feedback and comments, come back for more sites plus loads of other stuff.

    Keep your customers happy! If they don't like it remove it.

    While it is common practice (I do it to), I kind of feel that it is exploiting them as they gave you money for the site not free reign to advertise yourself.

    Ok, thanks for your feedback on this and i completely agree with you but what i am asking is, consider that i will be adding them on all sites, what is the best link to display as i simply would not display it if any of my customers did not want it, thanks again ;)

    Go for your keywords "Web Design North London" "Cheap London Escorts" "Website Support North London", essentially what you think is the most common thing typed into google by your prospective clients. People rarely search for "Created by [sitename]".

    Oh and check your main competitors to see what link text they are using.

    If you're only offering the services of website designing and development then you may certainly use this keywords "web designing & development London".. On the other hand if you're offering the facility of SEO, website designing and development then you may use this keyword like "web design, development & SEO London"........

    I'd suggest using your keywords "SEO & Web Design Ireland".

    Good luck.
