I have access to a PR6 site, and would like to place a link on it without them seeing it.

    Without them seeing it in the source* of course. The website owners are generally tech-savvy... not too much into web design and coding, but they hired me via craigslist (shows how much they know).

    Is the easiest way to link back to my website without them seeing it directly in the code (but still be picked up by Google)? Maybe using a javascript or something like that?

    Well, I wouldn't be happy to fool somebody who gave trust for me for a specific job. I know it's BHW here but there are still morals involved :)

    Well, I read somewhere about having your link placed in the source code somehow that it is not visible on the viewing area of the browser (beyond the right/left borders) but spiders still get to cache them and credit you for these links.

    I have never tried this myself but thought I would give me 2 cents.

    Let's just say they fooled me... I have morals ;)

    I'm handy with web design.. I know that I could easily do:

    Code:
    <span style="display:none;">my link here</span>
    ...which I know the search engines will pick up...

    This is a very popular blog I'm working with... perhaps go back to an entry from 2 years ago and change one of the URLs to mine?

    You should never blackhat your clients, that is just good business sense, but I don't know what happen between you two...

    Anyway javascript wouldn't work because javascript is client side, and code you would use they could find it by searching for the files on their server. You can hide links in the html, but someone could find it by looking at the source code.

    That's true... It's just an idea I was throwing around. If I get caught... shame shame on me and my company.

    So I won't attempt it.

    My advice :

    If they are not the best blogger or don't know much how to handle outbound links, you can put your link under ( . , - ) it will take small space and hard to see ) or just make a hidden link ( i don't know google will ban you or not )

    Just do it openly and add it to the main page.

    Add something like "Updated by XYZ" I am sure they are fine with it.

    Afterall, you updated the page didn't you? :D

    I have done this with the company I used to work for, their site is PR6 too, although I couldnt get my link on the main page. My link is hidden as a single generic word related to my keyword, on a well-linked PR5 page.

    I chose to have a word as the anchor because there is a danger when cloaking your links. I have actually had serious problems in the past which were caused by backlinks to my site being hidden, or having no anchor/anchor as a space or full stop. Be careful.

    I thought you don't get penalized in google for things that are NOT on your site? So that backlinks couldn't harm your PR..isn't it like this?
