    Hi,

    I'm working on a project for a client, and they want me to make landing pages for PPC campaigns, with no points of exit except to either close the page or contact them (like no navigation to other pages, etc). I want to put a link somewhere in there, like I normally do for clients (like in the footer.. "Designed by me..") but I don't want to to be a point of exit. So I want "credit" for the link, but visitors not be able to click thru.. any help or thoughts?

    I've heard if you use CSS to make it hidden, it's bad for SEO, so it seems like my only other option is to make it really really small...

    any help would be much appreciated.

    thanks!

    Make it small, or use white font on white background. or black on black so people can't see it.

    Maybe you can add a CSS style like this one : a:link{text-decoration:none}

    Your visitors won't see it is a link, but for search engines it will be a normal link

    You can already add a "display:none" style, but it is at your own risks...
