    Do you put a link to your website on the styles you create for web pages? I haven't been doing it for the ones I have but I only have done a few so far.

    Adding links to your site and getting credit for your work is always worth doing. When I visit a site and like the design I always look to see if I can find a link to the designer's website. Links like this are a good way for you to get additional design work and they will also help with your own site's SEO.

    Oooh, good point you brought up there. I never thought of how it could effect the SEO. This brings up a quick question I had. Would just a watermark kind of thing help the SEO or would it have to be a link?

    Matt a watermark is just an image and it won't help your SEO directly. However, it might help bring more people to your site, if people who see the image type your site's address into their browser.

    oh ok, I see. I guess people will be more likely to click a link rather than type in something in their browser. That is something I'm going to need to fix :x
