    I'm a web designer/programmer I build quality sites. I could offer a discount for a credit "Designed by..." link on footer but this is good for SEO?

    I'm don't know much about SEO, or Panda and I could have lots of back-links, most of the clients are OK with this without any discount.

    After lots of blog articles, link buying/building I have some SEO traffic and I get most of my of contracts through it so I don't want to loose my SEO rank, can anyone tell me if a link on footer is a good idea?

    In the sandbox. Again.
    It's not a bad idea but it wouldn't be as good as say, a link in their footer linking to a dedicated page on their domain where you can add a unique article about web development and put the link to your site in context.

    Context > Footer / Sidebar

    ^This is an excellent idea for that situation. Perhaps a homepage link going to that page on their domain, then to your site from there. Or a homepage link to your site and then in addition the idea that MBW007 had. I think that either of those would probably be better than just a sitewide footer link.
